OK, so everything worked fine for about 3 days.
Today, my DIY kit worked fine for about 4 hours, afterwards I could not connect to the Outernet SSID anymore.
I've removed the power, applied it again and still no go, since the Outernet SSID did not appear.
I've even tried pressing the little power button on the CHIP board for 10 seconds, but still nothing.
After powering up the board, the behavior is the following:
- for about 1 minte, Power and STAT LEDs are steady
- then the STAT LED starts flashing for about 1 minute, then it comes steady again
Is my CHIP board broken, or is there something I can do ?
Update: here is a video of the board's behavior: http://pbnet.ro/otn/20170329_125750000_iOS.MOV
