connecting to Adafruit Feather RP2040 with Chromebook and US

by ha3 on Wed Sep 22, 2021 3:38 am

Hi, can someone advise on how to connect an Adafruit Feather RP2040 to a Chromebook via USB? Currently connected, there is a red flashing light but it does not show on the device list using RaspController (Android app in Chrome). I have Linux enabled but when an experienced Linux user tried to locate the Feather, they couldn't.

Which version of Chrome OS are you running?

Have you installed CircuitPython on the RP2040?

Have you tried entering the bootloader to see if the device appears? The red LED will pulse when in this mode.

The BOOTSEL button is used to enter the bootloader. To enter the bootloader, press and hold BOOTSEL and then power up the board (either by plugging it into USB or pressing RESET). The bootloader is used to install/update CircuitPython.

Chrome OS Version 93.0.4577.85 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a DELL Inspiron.

Perfect, let me try that when I'm back at the workbench tomorrow. Thanks, if you could point to any instructions for installing CircuitPython using my Chromebook via USB I'd appreciate it.
