We want to control the BLE Mesh network from the linux.As we understand the only one way to do it now - pyACI https://infocenter.nordicsemi.com/topic/com.nordic.infocenter.meshsdk.v3.1.0/md_scripts_interactive_pyaci_README.html?cp=5_2_2_3_1But i can't found the firmware working with this script. It just doesn't described.Where i can found the firmware for nRF52840-Dongle?
At the moment, there is no FW working for the 52840 dongle. As of now, you'll have to use a DK with the serial example to get interactive PyACI to work.
When the firmware for dongle will be available?It will be much more simple solution, that DK.
Received a reply from a colleague: "NRF52840 dongle does not have on board debugger supporting the serial interface. It directly connects to USB with the help of firmware. So, I don’t anticipate that this will be straight forward."
I will mention this internally as a feature request, but I am not sure if & when this will be implemented. You can contact your local Regional Sales Manager to push them to add this as a feature request too.
