Should things stop working there are multiple ways to get your badge working again. Please make sure you have a backup of whatever you've been working on, you might lose all the data stored on you badge:

  • Try deleting the file you have been working on, "safely eject" the badge and then press the reset button.
  • Delete all other files apart from boot.py, wifi.json and bootstrap.py, "safely eject" the badge and then press the reset button.
  • Factory reset the filesytem. Press and hold 'MENU' while quickly pressing the reset button at the back. Keep the MENU button hold for another 2 seconds while the green light on the front is blinking. Release it while the green light is on. (See here for more information. The USR button equals the MENU button, the orange light doesn't exist)

All these steps should finally get you to a screen saying "Downloading TiLDA software". It should take less than a minute until the bare badge functionalities are restored.

Note: If you're not at the camp site you might now have to open the USB storage and edit the details in the wifi.json. Don't forget to "safely eject" and to press the eject button if you do so.
