I just recently got my LBB and was anxious to start developing. After some bluetooth issues with my Windows 10 laptop and the LBB sdk environment, I decided to switch to a Linux platform. Since my Raspberry Pi 3 has BLE support built in, I thought I'd give that a try. Following the instructions on the PunchThrough site for setting up the CLI environment, and successfully being able to scan and find my LBB, I thought I was set to go. Unfortunately, that was as far as I could get. I was unable to load sketches or update firmware. I can load and run sketches through the Android loader so I know the LBB is functioning.
So, my question is: are there other developers out there using Linux platforms successfully? Is so, could you please list your tool and LLB firmware versions. Mine are:
pi@pi-32:~ $ uname -a
Linux pi-32 4.4.50-v7+ #970 SMP Mon Feb 20 19:18:29 GMT 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux
bean CLI 0.6.1
LLB firmware: 201609290000
The latest bean SDK appears to contain a later version of the firmware (201611070000) but, as I said, I'm unable to update it.
