Must admit I’ve been very frustrated with my norns lately- totally unclear if its user error or if something is wrong with mine.
At the moment I just want to try out @LFSaw 's Haven script- noticed it appeared to be in Dust now. (though I am not a programmer so my knowledge of how github works is basically nothing, I don’t know what pull request is, etc. etc.)
In the past when I wanted to add scripts I just used wifi or hotspot, made a new script, and copy-pasted the code that I found in Dust. I noticed for Haven however that I also have to add an engine.
So I investigated how others merge dust updates with their norns, and I saw that some use a USB drive, where you download dust from github, unpack it and put it on a drive. Then “sync from” USB. (I’m aware this could mean loss of saved things but I don’t have anything I need to backup).
Tried doing that today, and when I select “sync from USB” it happens INSTANTLY, and it appears nothing has changed- no new scripts, etc. Tried with other USB drives, all freshly FAT formatted, same thing.
So I figured okay why not try WIFI/maiden again to see if I cant manually copy/paste the engine and script. And today for whatever reason, wifi can barely recognize any networks, and when it can and I try to connect, it consistently comes up with “failed.” This is a new problem, as wifi has worked for me in the past.
So I figured okay why not try hotspot, that has also worked for me in the past. Fire up hotspot, gives me the IP address, and my computer struggles enormously to find it in the list of available networks, and again when it does, it stalls for a bit and then drops connection.
At this point, is there some way I can do a damn factory reset or something? At a bit of a loss right now because I just cannot seem to ever get this device to behave the way I want anymore, and I’m so excited by everyone’s fantastic scripts, but again I don’t know if I’m doing things wrong or if my device is just totally out of whack.
