Hi!

I haven't used my oak for some time and now when I brought it out again I have run into a strange issue. It connects to wifi and particle cloud and seems to run some software I programmed it with last time. When i try to load new software (tested different example code) to it, Particle (also test with Arduino IDE) reports successful update and the oak is indicating that it is being updated by flashing led, BUT the software does not seems to be written to the oak at all since pins, onboard led, particle functions and variables are not functioning/shown. It almost seems as the oak has RO memory...
I was thinking that perhaps it could have something to do with the slots and that it reverts back to previous software for some reason. Do anyone have any advice?

Nobody have any ideas? I have also tested with my second Oak and that wont even connect. Wifi-setup fails, and yes, I have read the post about this already but so far nothing have worked since DHCP does not seem to work (assigning IP manually does no help either) and 192.168.0.1 does not respond.

Its very disappointing that such a good idea (the oak) should go to waste because of non-functional firmware and setup. When you use this kind of experiment board you kind of expect that it should be easy to setup and start writing your project... Not that you should have to spend 16+ hours setting it up....
*sorry, but frustration is taking over*
