My “normal” computer is a Mac.
I did re-install Circuit Blocks without any errors on the Mac.
I can see the ringo from the Mac reported on the USB subsystem. It is reported as cP2104 USB to UART Bridge Controller, But every time I try and “Reload Firmware” I simply get an error.
If I run a windows 10 virtual machine (I don’t have a PC), I can again see the USB device, but Circuit Blocks gives the same error (although it does take longer to give the error and still gets no further than 0%).
If I run the Arduino app I can see the device listed, but when I try to read the device Board information I don’t get any information. When I plug in an Arduino Uno I do get the information from the board. However, I do not see a port relating to the ringo. I do see /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port which is reported as:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 18, 1 18 Feb 18:18 cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port
but I don’t think that is related to the ringo. I do not see another possible device created when the ringo is plugged in.
I believe that the ringo is reported in the System report as:
CP2104 USB to UART Bridge Controller:
Product ID: 0xea60
Vendor ID: 0x10c4 (Silicon Laboratories, Inc.)
Serial Number: 01845F73
Speed: Up to 12 Mb/s
Manufacturer: Silicon Labs
Location ID: 0x14214000 / 16
Current Available (mA): 500
Current Required (mA): 100
Extra Operating Current (mA): 0
So, I’m stuck at the moment.
BTW, for a couple of hours the ringo decided to work and completed the boot. But then it reverted to the booting loop.
