CPB not showing CIRCUITPY

by gallaugher on Thu Aug 05, 2021 5:42 pm

Hi,
I have a CircuitPlayground Bluefruit that will show CPLAYBOOT & I can drag adafruit-circuitpython-circuitplayground_bluefruit-en_US-6.3.0.uf2 onto the board, but then it doesn't reload on my Mac. Have tried unplugging and plugging. pressing reset, restarting the Mac, and reinstalling the .uf2, but CPLAYBOOT works, but CIRCUITPY never shows. Other CPBs work fine. Any way to fix this or do I some how have a bad board?

This is what my INFO_UF2.TXT in my misbehaving board says, under CPLAYBOOT:
UF2 Bootloader 0.2.11-8-g2c13fd5-dirty lib/nrfx (v1.1.0-1-g096e770) lib/tinyusb (legacy-755-g55874813) s140 6.1.1
Model: Adafruit Circuit Playground nRF52840
Board-ID: nRF52840-CircuitPlayground-revD
Date: Jul 13 2019

Thanks!

@gallaugher,

That is a pretty old bootloader. You should update that and then resume the CircuitPython update process you had been trying.
