I had been having no success running any Windows IoT Core demos so I thought I’d try Raspbian.
I downloaded the Dexter Wheezy distro and have been able to connect to my Rasperry Pi2 with GrovePi attached okay.
I ran a software update and that took a while.
I checked the firmware of my GrovePi and it got reported as 0.0.0.0 which I’m guessing can’t be right.
I ran i2cdetect and got values reported (including 04) in all positions of the output, so different from the Get Started guide.
I then tried updating the firmware, but it reports avrdude: AVR device not responding, initialization failed no=1, then the Updating the GrovePi Firmware line comes up.
I’ve left that for an hour or more and nothing else is reported, no progress on updating the firmware or anything, is my (new) GrovePi just broken?
