Adafruit Circuit Playground Bluefruit - UF2 files

by hgmm on Mon Jun 21, 2021 1:54 pm

Hi,

We recently purchased a Circuit Playground Bluefruit.
We upgraded the bootloader to the latest version.
We also upgraded to the latest version of circuit python.

We are trying to run the https://makecode.adafruit.com/ siren example.
We cannot get the UF2 file to work when we upload/copy it to CPLAYBTBOOT.

Appreciate any guidance!
Thank you!

Side note: CircuitPython is irrelevant when using makecode, it gets overwritten by your makecode program.

On to the problem. What exactly do you mean when you say "cannot get the UF2 file to work"? What happens? I'm not even sure Makecode works with the CircuitPlayground Bluefruit; everything I find talks about the CircuitPlayground Express.

We copy the UF2 file, nothing happens and the neopixels stay green and do not change to red.
Appreciate it if you can confirm that makecode is not designed to work with CIRCUIT PLAYGROUND BLUEFRUIT?

Hi - we wanted to follow up - if MakeCode is supported by Bluefruit?
