Bluetooth Pairing Mode Probem

Post by petergrubercom » Fri Jun 02, 2017 9:39 am

I cannot get my micro:bit into pairing mode. It shouldn't be that difficult (press and hold A+B, then briefly press the reset button), but noting happens. When I press the reset button, the program is halted, when I release it, it restarts. No pairing mode whatsoever.

Did I make a mistake? Is there a (known) problem with my device?

MicroPython on the Micro:bit doesn't have bluetooth support, because that requires too much memory.

Thanks for your replies, but the problem is earlier. It is the simple *pairing* of the micro:bit with my iPhone 5s.

You can only get blue tooth working in languages other than micropython.
It's only the initial program and other downloadable images which csn be used to get pairing mode up and running. Simply holding down a and b then pressing reset wont work if you've flashed a program onto the microbit

@javargas26: please post your questions in the appropriate forum sections, and not in an unrelated thread. This section is for discussing MicroPython on the micro:bit, not on the ESP32.
