beta.7 Metro Airlift - drops offline

by SandPig on Wed Aug 25, 2021 10:19 am

beta.7 (and 6) on the MetroAirlift work fine, but lose connection to Adafruit IO
the device is not rebooting. serial is quiet while it's offline and dashboard commands issued while offline to not get applied once the board returns to an online state. For the brief moment it is online, commands (led blink) work fine.

the board drops offline and immediately the board LED goes solid blue
a few seconds later the led clears and the serial shows the PING and the board is now online and remains connected for 1-2 seconds (at best)
then the blue LED returns for several seconds until it clears and we get another ping
the wipper drive is accessible at all times after initial boot.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you need any other bits of info from me.

FYI -- I had similar issues on Beta.6, but beta.7 has be staying online for me (Metro m4 Airlift). It's been up for several hours now.

inspired by jerryn's success, I fired up my Metro Airlift again to start poking around to see if I could get the same result and now there's no issue.
The board connects right up and there's no more drop between pings.
I don't like magic, but hey, it's working!

I'll update if the magic wears off

after beta.8 load, no disk is mounted and I've got a solid red led - no serial output (no port to monitor)
reload beta.7, no issues

Could you try updating the UF2 bootloader version, then load Beta.8 onto the AirLift:

from:
UF2 Bootloader v3.3.0-adafruit.10 SFHWRO
Model: Metro M4 AirLift
Board-ID: SAMD51J19A-Metro-AirLift-v0

to:
UF2 Bootloader v3.13.0 SFHWRO
Model: Metro M4 AirLift
Board-ID: SAMD51J19A-Metro-AirLift-v0

similar result:
beta.7 works, beta.8 does not
Load beta.8 and get a red led
No disk, no port to monitor, nothing

side note, I really appreciate you adding a link for uploading the boot loader - I am very short on time (stupid job) and little things like that really help me.

Could you try loading the circuitPython 7 UF2 on: https://circuitpython.org/board/metro_m4_airlift_lite/

Then go back to METROBOOT and load WipperSnapper?
