Thanks for the reply! I did end up finding a dongle on amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TAM0MZW and went that route. It's working great, thanks a ton. Love these boards!
I have a project put together that I want to essentially be a "dongle" - I just want to plug it straight into a USB power source, preferably without having to supply an additional cable. Is it possible to solder up a USB type A male socket (like this: https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Socket-Connector-Replacement-Adapter/dp/B07QY6Z4Y6) straight to the board?
I found this pretty slick unit for doing this with a RPi Zero, but I'd rather use the Espruino WiFi for my project - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08XYKWZN9
Hey, yep, WiFi still works perfectly (it's what the current project I'm hacking on requires).
I will try a few different cables. Thanks!
I have the exact experience as the original poster. I've tried the require("Storage").eraseAll() and then reset() approach and it does not help, unfortunately. I'm not sure about running the python code as noted from Christine a year ago, as I can't even get the .bin file from that page to extract on my Mac at the moment.
Thanks for the suggestion, fanoush. I tried a few times this morning making sure I was not holding the button longer than 3 seconds and it still does the same thing. Gordon is helping with a replacement (whoo! thanks!) so I think we're all set.
Also, I just got the board, arrived in the mail yesterday.
OK, thanks for the suggestion. I actually had to try four (!) different cables until one worked. I am now able to connect to the device via the Web IDE and can make the lights turn on with the right JS code. However, I still cannot get it into bootloader mode to flash it. No lights ever come on when I plug it in with the button held down and release. I've tried as many different "techniques" as I can think of. I can only get the lights to do anything by writing some JS in the IDE and sending the right functions.
Thanks for the quick response, I appreciate it. Wanted to reply quickly - I can't get it doing anything with this cable, so you may be right. I'll go find more and try a bunch and reply back. Thanks again for the quick reply, back soon.
