can't update bootloader on Airlift

by maxvenum on Sat May 29, 2021 8:46 pm

Hi,

I just got a new Metro M4 Airlift Lite, and I cannot get the bootloader drive to appear on my windows 10 machine. Doesn't matter how fast or slow I double-click. The board functions: I can download code and use the REPL terminal. I also got a Itsy M4 at the same time, and I was able to update the bootloader on it. I'm using the same computer and USB cable as for the Itsy, so I know both work. I did notice when on the REPL terminal it is only running CircuitPython 4.0.0 whereas the current version is in the 6.x.x range. Any idea what I could be doing wrong?

Thanks,
Tobyn

Hi,

I finally got it to go into bootloader update mode. Turns out I had to double-click the reset button IMMEDIATELY after power up. Now, I got it updated to 6.2.0.

Thanks,
Tobyn
