[brewblox] No compatible USB devices found


#1

Hi,

I know it’s still beta, but I tried to install brewblox on a RaspberryPi 3 Model B+ and a BrewPi Spark version 1.0 revision C.

I followed the instructions on https://github.com/BrewBlox/brewblox-documentation/blob/master/user/startup.md

During the command brewblox-ctl flash I run in an error No compatible USB devices found. The DFU mode seems to be activated successfully (at least the spark beeps during the command).

The complete output of the command:
Please press ENTER when your Spark is connected over USB^[[3
The following shell commands will be used:

 docker-compose down
 docker pull brewblox/firmware-flasher:rpi-stable
 docker run -it --rm --privileged brewblox/firmware-flasher:rpi-stable trigger-dfu
 docker run -it --rm --privileged brewblox/firmware-flasher:rpi-stable flash

Press ENTER to continue, Ctrl+C to cancel

Running command:
 docker-compose down

No compatible USB devices found

Any ideas? Where can I find logs with further information?

Best regards,
Bernd

The new stack doesn’t support the spark core, only the photon and the P1.

A BrewPi Spark 1 can be upgraded by replacing the spark core with a photon.

Oh. I missed that information. Thx.
I’ll shop for a photon core. Case closed :slight_smile:

Hi, I just confirm that the update worked like a charm after I replaced the Spark with a Photon core for ~20 bucks. Thx again for the instant help with this.
