    I wanted to know which programmer and which debug level to use for programming nrf52 with arduino.Currently I am using bootloader dfu for nrf52 so when i upload it loads the firmware everytime and then the program as a result its com port changes while uploading.Kindly guide me how to solve this problem as due to it uploading becomes really unreliable .

      Hi there, it sounds like you are still looking for technical assistance. Again, please use the link in the banner above, to get started with posting a topic in our forums. Our technical support team will do their best to assist you; however, again, this bootloader issue is probably outside the scope of their support capabilities and you may need to reach out to Nordic for help.

    I followed the step by step, and I cannot view the nRF52849 with the nRF connect. I've tried loading under both the Pro mini board and the Adafruit Bluefruit. One time, after about 7 resets while using the bluefruit as the board designation, it showed up in the nRF connect. I connected, it froze, I restarted connect, and it was gone. I haven't seen it since, but I know that the module isn't broken at least. I have mostly tried to connect with the peripheral blinky_ota example sketch (arduino), but I have tried others as well with no luck. I am at a loss as to why it will not be found. Any suggestions?

      For anyone running into that problem, the corrective steps I took that eventually got things working were re-installing the bootloader stuff -> and then I used the sparkfun demo script below instead of the example blinky sketch that came with the software and it started working.

    Not able to compile the Bluetooth button code in Arduino IDE. Always get the message "fatal error: Arduino.h: No such file or directory". How to resolve this ?

      Hi, i have been battling this for a week now. This is a shot in the dark, but how/did you get this resolved?

      EDIT: If anyone runs into this error, it is due to the URL for installing the packages. I was able to get around this by using adafruits tutorial for their NRF5280 board

    I loaded CircuitPython and am able to access & execute at the REPL. I see the directory CIRCUITPY mounted on my filesystem. When I drag either of the samples, as, nothing happens. If I do a reset, is gone. I tried erase_filesystem() and got the same behavior. Any ideas? Thx
