I have a development board and load the client central BLE blinky to it, then the peripheral BLE blinky to my custom board and power up and the central development board stays LED 1 on and never switches to LED 2. Any suggestions?
Make sure you have followed the getting started:
Depending on the example you are using, the LED1 and LED2 may have different meaning. Please refer to the central and peripheral example you are using on what they mean.
I see absolutely nothing there that addresses or can help with this situation so the RTFM reply doesnt help. additionally there only 1 single central BLE example in nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345 so the comment 'depending on the example you are using' is also not helpful. lastly LED1 means not partnered, LED 2 means partnered (as explained by Nordic <aka you>)
I even have a sample of my custom board that is loaded with a program like ble_app_att_mtu_throughput but adapted to work on my board instead of the development kit. it communicates BLE to the tester (custom board setup as sender) just fine. I connect it to Jflash, read entire chip, then program a different sample of my custom board and it doesnt communicate BLE to the tester.
It seems from this thread you have already something working now:https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/48117/program-softdevice

Also, the following link may be helpful getting started (note the web page in the beginning of the tutorial have changed, but the content itself when working with the SDK is still valid):
I assume you have first verified working 2pcs of Nordic nRF52-DK here, since that will help getting things setup according the the descriptions in the examples projects for a central and peripheral.
a week later and the reply is that you see a similar thread and assume everything is working so why do I keep asking?????????????????????????? the other thread is about downloading the softdevice and yes, i finally figured out how to do that. this thread however is related to BLINKY.
and then your comment with the link to the BLE Central programs???????? i think you are attempting to say "i told you so" but how many of them are named blinky, just one. PLEASE ASSIGN A DIFFERENT TECH SUPPORT REP TO THIS QUESTION!!!!!!!!!
