Hey folks, long-time first-time.
It appears that I’m one of the unlucky recipients of a “doesn’t create an AP for setup” unit, and I’d like to save the GF team several hundred bucks and myself a handful of weeks by fixing this over the wire. I’ve read over the unofficial hacker’s wiki and this should be straightforward compared to my last gig at Particle. Console access to Yocto via USB serial? Easy. Want me to drop a uSD socket on that unpopulated pad?
Think I have one of those around, plus a hot air rework station. Even if I need to flash via that JTAG, it’s gear already I have.
So! What I’m missing is:
- Are there any known commands that’ll get it advertising the AP from the command line? Some other mode it might be in? A .conf to edit so it’ll come up on reboot? Or another non-major fix?
Or, failing that,
- A known good Yocto image and recommended procedure for getting it on there.
Even better if it’s just a skipped assembly step and the Wi-Fi antennas weren’t plugged in.
A quick skim of LinkedIn didn’t turn up a GF engineer that I was sure worked on the device side to @, so happy to get that info too.
Let’s figure out how to do this!
