I'm currently working with the nRF9160 DK and received it fresh from the box probably around 2 weeks and I successfully activated the SIM card from the Nordic Cloud and eager to start programming onto it.
I'm currently based out of New Jersey, USA
I downloaded the nRF Connect Application for Mac (Currently working from a 2015 Macbook Pro) and began with the 'Getting Started Assistant'
Step 1: Install the Toolchain (Success)- Successfully managed to install 'Homebrew' and "Download and install version 8-2019-q3-update of the GNU ARM Embedded toolchain to be able to cross-compile for ARM targets"
Step 2: Clone the nRF Connect (Having difficulty)- I successfully performed, 'pip3 install west'- I'm having difficulty with the second part which says, "Initialize west and clone the nRF Connect SDK manifest repository nrf:"- I created a folder in /Users/'myname'/ncs- cd /Users/'myname'/ncs- west init -m github.com/.../fw-nrfconnect-nrf- However, after I run that command I receive, "FATAL ERROR: already initialized in /Users/'myname', aborting."- Unfortunately, I cannot locate where this is currently initialized - This is where I need the most help at this current stage of the setup.
Step 3: Download Segger Embedded Studio (Success)- Successfully downloaded this application for coding
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm very eager to get this up and working. Thank you for your time in this.
I'm glad step 1 and step 3 was successful!
In your folder "/Users/'myname' " can you please show what is in this folder? A screenshot from terminal or similar.Kind regards,Øyvind
You can see that the 'ncs' folder that I created is empty where I want to place the github manifest.
OK, so what happens if you delete that folder and try one more time? Can you make a folder with another name i.e. NCS12, and then try one more time inside of this folder? Can you take a screenshot of the result in the terminal?Kind regards,Øyvind

Unfortunately I get the same error. I even deleted the older folder 'ncs' from /Users/Joel
