Device serial number XBP24BZ7WIT arrived as a Zigbee Router/AT. Used XCTU (6.1.1) to reflash as Zigbee coordinator (API mode). The firmware update seemed fine. But now I cannot connect. Add or discover devices leads to a "timeout, could not read HW or FW versions." Recovery/reflash gives "there is not an active boot loader in the module."
I noticed afterwards that the default settings for this firmware (21A7 (Newest)) has DIO7 set to CTS flow control yet DIO6 is set to Disable (and not RTS). It seems that HW flow control is "half on" as CTS and no RTS, yet I can only configure the computer side as no-flow-control or HW-flow (which would use both CTS and RTS wouldn't it?) Did I kill my XBEE by using the default half-HW-flow-control config? Hmmm, I notice other default firmware settings have CTS and no RTS. So perhaps I am mistaken. Thanks.
