Load CircuitPython on Meowbit

by pcoxall on Thu Mar 12, 2020 11:02 pm

I have a Meowbit working with MakeCode Arcade.
Not sure how to load CircuitPython on it because the download file is a *.bin file.
What exactly do I do with it?

Thanks

Sorry about that, we forgot the meowbit has a UF2 bootloader. Attached is a .uf2 you can use.

Thanks so much.
The file worked great.

Still one question.
CircuitPython.org still only has the *.bin file not this *.uf2 file.
Will it be updated, so that I can get all further updates?

Thanks

No problem, yes, I opened an issue: https://github.com/adafruit/circuitpython/issues/2702. I mentioned your github username in that issue; I thought you'd get a ping email about it, but it might depend on your GitHub notifications settings.
