  1. Hooray, i'm walking the path of wisdom. I did a fresh reinstall of the app and realized my battery was dying yesterday, and swapped that out too (i should have mentioned it). I think my initial problem was the firmware image had the wrong version on it, crashing the app, as i read others having that problem. Right now, i have downloaded everything that others have...i just don't seem to have the same file others have. I also don't know why my External flash self test is failing. that is new to me. The one thing i can think of is if someone sends me the correct hex file. I'm about to
  2. Okay, so i tried several things with varying degrees of failure. - the 6 second hold, and all it did was reset the device with the same 41 services - I used CCS to flash the device with a sensortag project. I should have checked it was an empty project. Nothing showed up. HOWEVER i could connect the sensortag to the app again without the app crashing! 39 Services, so it was changed. - I tried to flash it via the app back to factory firmware, but it said OAD flashed as the device External FLASH self test failed and it cannot do OAD on this device. The debugger was not connected at t
  3. Thanks so much, bluehash! I'll try it when i get home. Excited to start playing with it again--its been down for a month and i just am getting back to it. Another question: any word on the microphone and accessing it?
  4. I have a new Sensortag 2015, and the update i did to the LCD pack rendered it pretty useless. I want to flash it back to stock. I have CCS and evothings installed. May someone please provide me with the code to flash my Sensortag back to stock? Would really appreciate the assist. Thanks so much!!!
  5. Lost mine somewhere...really want another one. Anyone have a spare?
  6. I happen to have that sensor and am playing with that board. Will read the tutorial and try to reconstruct the experiment with what i have here (about an hour away from home for the weekend). ***EDIT (continually)*** I don't think i have a 10K resistor to play with. It is really interesting that you are getting what seem to be 16 bit results with errors (the 65535). When you used the pull up resistor, you either got high or low, so that didn't help. It seems like the sampling isn't being done correctly. BTW, did you try removing the atmega stuff from the h file?
  7. [2] MSP430 reverse engineering stuff by Travis Goodspeed. Seems to be non functional. Going to site root seems to get a sample page.
  8. It only happens if i read the accelerometer--and happened before i ever opened up the watch. . Sometimes, if i shoot by accel while cycling the menu, it would do it. If i didn't touch it, it would last. I got sick of having to wirelessly reset my watch all the time (or manually as it happened a couple times a day and away from a computer). Actually i opened it up to change the battery, when this whole mess got started lol. do you think it just might be crashing? Maybe i should update the firmware...
  9. okayyyy... well,in short, i was saying that you shouldn't aim for the low end watch market. You should aim higher. like, $150ish range, and compete wiht the pebble. give it an base array of sensors comprobable to the Chronos, and then add the bluetooth for SPP. The claim to fame is an external ports for I2C, which allows you to attach other physical devices. At least that is how I would do it. God, I wish I could program better. And use PAS battery for quick charge, and turn off the display if power too low.
  10. Crap, now its back to that restarting crap. What gives? Does anyone's do that or have a fix for that?
  11. hehe good, cause i was reading that watch project, and looking at the OLED and SD card break out again. I have such ideas...esp since i'm almost done with the RFID project. Estimated time till it gets here?
  12. How hard would it be to integrate and I2c external port or use an OLED display? I wrote you LONNNGGGG message with ideas for your consideration, but then deleted it as this is YOUR project. If you are interested, i'll send it as a PM. What i would say is that the Chronos uses a very simple, and space saving button method of just thin metal that the other buttons press inwards to make contact to complete the circuit. It's definitely a nice design. The other thing is that you can use a small PAS battery, similar to the ones in Electronic Goldmine, and a small voltage regulator, if no
  13. figured it out . There is a spring that goes from the back battery cover to VCC...i but it in the wrong hole. Those things are TINY! :thumbup:
  14. Now that i have both boards, thus, both MCUs. I had tried to include it as an OR statement, and it failed to compile. I made an at ELIF statement, that may not have worked either, as i get no reply from the 2553. What must i do for both MCUs to work? Also, what is necessary to do make the system compatible with other similar MCUs or MSP430s, like the F2012/2013 and the chronos. Very curious...
