Matrix Portal SAM-BA Operation Failed

by timmcphail on Thu Apr 08, 2021 3:54 pm

Received the Matrix Portal, got the Arduino IDE set up, everything working fine. Uploading the "pixeldust" sketch no problem for the first 3 or 4 times, making minor modifications to the code to explore. Now getting an error when uploading the either my modified or original sketch (see below). Didn't change any cables, ports or anything but some code in the sketch. Tried closing and restarting the Arduino IDE with no success. Interestingly, the first failed attempt got to about 30%, the second failed attempt got to about 20% and finally this third attempt got to 10% only. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Arduino: 1.8.13 (Mac OS X), Board: "Adafruit Matrix Portal M4 (SAMD51), Enabled, 120 MHz (standard), Small (-Os) (standard), 50 MHz (standard), Arduino, Off"

This sounds like a bootloader update will resolve it. I've seen that in the case of other SAMD boards that print out the SAM-BA operation failed message.

You can pickup the latest v3.13.0 here for the matrix portal m4. We have variety of ways to install it, but the easiest is to double click the reset button to get into bootloader mode and see the mounted BOOTPY drive. Then drop the appropriate matrixprotal UF2 file onto the icon to update.

Thanks! I'll give that a try. Fingers crossed. Excited to start coding with the Matrix Portal.
