What would you recommend I do here ...

My question, is not a What problem do I have here? question. Instead it is more of a What sorts of ways do you find are most helpful for debugging pyboard issues where you have limited connectivity --- and where problem might only be triggered extended periods without network usage.

Re: Cause of complaints about hard resets being delayed by hours?

As I'd never come across pyboard.py before reading the last post, I'm putting a link to it below:

https://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/ ... rd.py.html

It looks very useful!

Re: Doh! Broken USR button!

That was perfect. Worked a treat! I wonder if it would be a good idea to add a tiny comment mentioning this other method of flashing on https://micropython.org/download/pybd/ ? I took the instructions there to be the definitive ones for pybd firmware flashing, but they only mention the existence of ...

Re: Doh! Broken USR button!

No problem with access to REPL. Indeed, the button may have been broken for months for all I know. So I'll try your suggestion . Great to know that such a nice-sw only method is possible. I had no idea. Thank you!

Doh! Broken USR button!

I don't know how or when I was clumsy, but somehow I broke my user button. See picture showing how the black rubber bit has come half out of the metal frame. I only need to use the button for one purpose: the magic combination of presses that allows me to dfu-util refresh to a newer version of micro...

Cause of complaints about hard resets being delayed by hours?

Since my very first pyboard arrived as a result of the first kickstarter campaign N years ago I've got along happily using the mass-storage method for uploading code to the pyboard. Though I am aware of dhylands' https://github.com/dhylands/rshell (and though I would be happy to use it if I needed t...
