Resetting Adafruit Hazzah32 - ESP32 Feather to factory setti

by dorbach on Tue Aug 13, 2019 11:11 am

Hi there,
My goal: To reset my Adafruit Hazzah32 - ESP32 Feather to factory settings so I can start fresh

I purchased and configured the ESP32 on one account and everything was fine. I now need to change accounts and would like to start from fresh. I am having trouble resetting it though and am not sure how to delete the configuration that I loaded on it. It keeps coming up with “resource busy” messages.

I’m brand new to working with this so please assume little to no knowledge on my part.
Thanks for your help!
Dan

Adding some more detail:

I purchased the Mongoose OS IoT starter kit with ESP32 board from Adafruit. This kit has a tutorial that goes through configuring the Adafruit Hazzah32 - ESP32 Feather to talk to Google Cloud IoT Core.

I followed the first 10 steps of https://mongoose-os.com/docs/mongoose-os/quickstart/setup.md which walks through the configuration to the point of enabling wifi, mqtt, mdash OTA, etc. However, I did that on my personal account on a Windows PC.

Since then I was able to get my Macbook Air working and I need to run this project on my Macbook and using my corporate account.

I tried connecting the board to the Macbook (instead of PC) and tried to re-build (mos build) and reflash (mos flash) along with some other options BUT the settings that have been saved persist and I get a message to the effect that the resource is busy (when I try to re-flash, etc.). I can get you the exact message if the above detail is not sufficient.

So I’m trying to get the ESP32 to boot in the same way it did before I did anything to it so I can start fresh.

Hope this provides a bit more context.

Thanks!
Dan
