PineTime is dead!!
#8
@Markdanni123 As the others said, I doubt your PineTime is dead... it just ran into multiple bugs that have (hopefully) been fixed in more recent versions of the InfiniTime and of the bootloader. From your description, I think it's now stuck into an infinite loop caused by that double bug (into InfiniTime and into the bootloader). 
The only way to fix that issue is to hard-reset the cpu... which is only possible via SWD (if your PineTime is a devkit) or wait for the battery to drain completely before charging it again.
Note that we've released InfiniTime 0.8.3 a few days ago which should fix this issue, and you'll be able to force reset your PineTime as much as you like Smile

Quote:what a waste of money this has been was actually rather excited to get my watch and see it develop into something awesome but nope!

I know this situation is quite frustrating, but what you experienced is exactly "see it develop into something awesome"! Every time we fix a bug, every time we add a functionality, is becoming better than before. Bugs are (unfortunately) part of the development process and there will be a lot of them while we are in heavy development phase! 
Feel free to join the community, test the firmware, report bugs and suggest new features, this way, you'll help us to make it awesome!

Right! But hanging out in many communication channels (Matrix, Discord, Reddit,...) can be quite consuming, and forum is not my favorite one... I'll try to come by from time to time, though!
