I had a classic bean laying around and finally got a round to making something with it.
The firmware on it is of version 201405080059 and seems to need an update, but whatever I do I can't update the firmware and so can't load sketches onto the bean
I started with the Android loader which asks me to update the firmware but gets stuck on 0% (12/5760) and fails.
I'm using 2 fresh AAA batteries so power is not an issue.
I tried to reset the BT on the phone, cycle the power on the bean, reset the bean memory - I keep getting the same results.
I then tried with an iPhone.
LightBlue explorer detects the bean and the demo works perfectly (LED, accelerometer).
The loader detects the bean, but trying to load a sketch just hangs on "Connecting". In the beans list, clicking the info icon for the bean does not open a menu.
I don't have a mac computer and I don't have a BLE dongle for my laptop.
Is there anything I can do to get it working? it's kinda frustrating
