rshell connecting to Pycom boards using Pybytes firmware

Post by philwilkinson40 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:36 am

This question relates to using Rshell tool with Pycom boards flashed with Pybytes firmware.

I recently started using Pycom's Pybytes firmware on a Pycom devboard (LoPy) and unfortunately Rshell is no longer able to connect.

Code: Select all

ls /dev/tty* 
returns the correct port. However

Code: Select all

rshell --buffer-size=30 -a -p /dev/tty####
just hangs. With the stable firmware it connects fine.
Has anyone else experienced this issue?

I also notice that even the stable firmware version from Pycom does not appear to work with a Deep Sleep shield (LoPy1.0).

There seems to be nothing related to this on the Pycom forum so I thought I would post here to see if other Rshell users have experienced similar issues.
