I guess this will be part II of another blog I wrote called What! My Azure Percept DK Devices Are Being Retired???. In that blog I mentioned how the Percept devices that were not cheap are now going into “retirement.” The only way to keep using them for other things is to install the last “Unsupported” firmware update before March 30th. This is my blog about how to install this update since you can no longer do OTA updates on existing devices at this time.
Since I failed terribly at getting my old Azure Sphere Development kit up and running as documented in previous blogs I decided to move on to my Vision AI DevKit. This has been a trusty workhorse for me in the past assisting with many demos. However, just like my other devices, I haven’t used this in a while, now I need to reset it and set it up again. The process The first thing I did was install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB).
In a previous blog I wrote about having to recover my Azure Sphere Development Kit. So I decided to right one on what to do with it once I have recovered it. So this blog continues from My Azure Sphere Needs Reset? However………. According to Microsoft’s documentation on how to claim the device there is a call out: Claiming a device is a one-time operation that you cannot undo even if the device is sold or transferred to another person or organization.
So recently I started working on another IoT project which lead me to breaking out all my old development kits. I previously wrote a blog called My Azure Sphere Needs Reset where I walked through recovering an old Azure Sphere Development Kit I had. So I decided to write another few blogs following how I had to do the same with all my devices since I couldn’t really remember any of the configurations and some of these devices had been configured for long gone IoT Hubs and tenants that don’t exist anymore.
So I needed to break out my Azure SPhere Development kit again that I haven’t touched in a very long time. Since then, the tenant my Azure Sphere was registered to has changed, and along with other things like my memory in my aging head, I couldn’t remember for the life of me how to access the kit. So this blog is mainly for me so in 6 months when I need to use my Azure Sphere development kit again I will have a quick and easy reminder.
