@marto Hi thanks for pointing that you, you are correct the updater tool only shows instructions for the expansion board at the moment. I have passed this on and it should hopefully be changed soon. I will now remove the text about carefully reading the updater instructions because that clearly caused confusion.
I will also pass on your OS details so make sure it gets investigated at the same time as the Mac OS issues.
I've pushed the 2 blacklisted devices with rules including vid:pid, but I've
also added the whole vid to the "usb adapters greylist", which are only probed
if manually requested to do so, so should help to avoid interference with other
Update completed, issue still happening. I think I will do what you are doing. I also tried to install atom in my Linux PC (Debian wheezy), though it did not work, not so sure if it is because .deb is for Ubuntu, although it is a debian under the hood.
