Q. about Adafruit's Microbit to Arduino IDE Library

by Blueshark on Sat May 18, 2019 6:58 am

I just got my Microbit, it works easy, even with Neopixels in the Makecode program.

Microbit
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3362

and Accesory
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3695


Q. Do I have to "Re-flash" my Microbit with a special program to get it to work back again with its hex files, after using the Adafruit Microbit to Arduino IDE Library: kinda like what you have to do with Circuit Playground Express when going back and forth between Arduino IDE and Circuit Python or Makecode?

I just dont want use Arduino in Microbit right now if you have to re-flash Microbit back with a special program if you use it with the Arduino IDE.

Cheers.

After testing the Adafruit Library for the Microbit for the Arduino IDE, its safe to say you don't need to re-flash some special software to get it to read your native hex files for the Microbit.

Just forllow the Tutorial here
https://learn.adafruit.com/use-micro-bit-with-arduino


you will also need this Library to make the examples work; tutorial does not provide link.

thats it, you can go back and forth Arduino IDE and regular Microbit Hex files with no problem just copy them to your Microbit.

Cheers...
