I recently purchased a Badger2040 + accessory kit.
When I connect it to my PC and reset the bootloader. I only see
INDEX.HTM. Is that expected? I was expecting to see the demo stuff i.e. things like
$ ls -lat
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 128 Sep 27 11:06 ..
drwxrwxrwx@ 1 lee337 staff 16384 Sep 27 11:06 .
-rwxrwxrwx 1 lee337 staff 241 Sep 5 2008 INDEX.HTM
-rwxrwxrwx 1 lee337 staff 62 Sep 5 2008 INFO_UF2.TXT
When I try an copy
pimoroni-badger2040-1.19.7-micropython.uf2 from github.com/pimoroni/pimoroni-pico/releases to
/Volumes/RPI-RP2 it seems to complete, but immediately unmounts the volume. When I reset the bootloader, the file is nowhere to be seen.
This is how this Badger works, similarly to other Pico boards. When you reset, it will unmount the drive. Then, you need to use Thonny to add code and other files. You need to download the code and examples from GitHub.
For example, if you want to use CheckList example:
- Download list.py from Pimoroni Github and copy to /main.py
- Create your own checklist.txt file and copy to /checklist.txt
- checklist.txt is just a plain text:
Ah - gotcha! Thank you for the reply :)
