New to TTGO and lost

Just received my node. I purchased 3 of them. I got the screens soldered on batteries in. They boot up and are discoverable via bluetooth. They will connect but then will time out. I have looked around a bit. They are running version 1.0.0. I have downloaded Python and trying to figure out how to update these. I am dumb when it comes to trying to write any code.

Any help is greatly appreciated

This is good place to start

If you are using the android app some 1.0 nodes can be updated there as well.

I agree with garth. You will probably need to update to latest firmware. I too had problems pairing when running v. 1.0.0. With the new firmware everything worked fine.

Good luck!

Finally got to the meshtastic flasher to work. This is what’s coming up
