SPI.write_readinto not working anymore after firmwareupdate
I updated the firmware from version 1.10.2.b1 to ver. 1.15.0.b1. after the update the command spi.write_readinto returned only zeros. I checked MISO, MOSI, CLK and CS lines everything as expected.
I then went back in firmware to ver. 1.10.2.b1 as described in: https://forum.pycom.io/topic/517/downgrading-firmware-advanced-users
With old firmware the same code is running again.
Is there a command that changed with firmwareupdate?

Someone should fix this in doc. I'm running the latest stable firmware on wipy3, SPI device is hooked to default pins (as in pinout diagram) and it wasn't working until I've explicitly passed them in pins during SPI initialization.
Most of the day yesterday I was struggling to make it work.
The safe boot functionality of pin 12 has always been like that, the only advice I can give to work around this issue is to modify the micropython firmware to use a different pin and build it from source. The change is quite trivial, you will just need to change this one line to a different GPIO number, https://github.com/pycom/pycom-micropython-sigfox/blob/ec4c3bb22a59a06870f37ea05d4be054c9bf44ef/esp32/boards/LOPY/mpconfigboard.h#L15

I'am using L01 and it is soldered on a PCB I made myself. Therefore changing from Pin12 to Pin14 is not possible for me.
Instead I tested:
spi = SPI(0, mode = SPI.MASTER, baudrate=2000000, polarity=0, phase=0, pins=('P10','P11','P12'))
It works again. But using Pin12 as MISO is not a good idea anyway since MISO in my case is held high by the slave. Pin12 is used to change the boot mode as well. If it's hold high long enough it selects factory firmware instead.
In my case this prevents the board from autostarting boot.py and main.py.
Is there a workaround?
Can you try specifying the pin in your code like so:
spi = SPI(0, mode=SPI.MASTER, baudrate=2000000, polarity=0, phase=0, pins=('P10','P11','P14'))
We changed our default SPI pins recently and this might be what's causing the issue

Those files haven't been properly uploaded by the looks of it. In your code to do specify the exact pins that the SPI should use or are you replying on the defaults? The defaults changed recently because on newer modules
P12controls which WiFi antenna is used. If you don't specify the pins, add this and let me know if this fixes it.
Here is my code. It is written for the barometer MS5611.

I just tested this function on version
1.15.0.b1and it worked successfully. This code has not been changed so maybe the issue lies elsewhere. Could you please share your source code?
