    After uploading this first basic readings test and altering line 32 to if (fingerSensor.begin() == false) { via : I am still not getting any readings from my serial output monitor.

    What do I do?

    Is there any secret to changing the addresses on these boards( ie an easier way of changing soldering job)? I'm currently trying to change them so i can operate four qwicc flex glove boards at the same time and am having an exceptionally hard time doing so. I'm working on a project that would be using all 8 fingers ( thumbs excluded).

    second question, I have them running off a photon i2c shield board. Do I need to remove all but one set (ie one set of three i2c resistors) on one board?

    I had problems with many of the example codes when I first got my product. After adjusting the codes, I found the reason. In all the codes, this should be in the if loop:

    (fingerSensor.begin(Wire, 100000, ADS1015_ADDRESS_GND) == false)

    Some of the examples had an extra parameter (like a 9600 at the end), others used ADS1015_ADDRESS_SDA or other incorrect parameters. By using the above if statement, I was able to get the basicReadings and Calibration code to work properly for me.
