New Playdate Stuck in Crash Loop During Wifi Config

My old DVT4 finally gave up the ghost, so Greg kindly sent me new hardware. I received it today and trying to go through the setup sequence, the unit is stuck in a loop trying to setup a wifi network.

I input the password, it crashes to the play date screen and then loads back to the wifi setup. Attempting to connect to any wifi network results in the same behaviour.

Reboot via the ol’ paperclip hole just loads back to the wifi setup. I can boot to a recovery disk, but I can’t seem to the firmware in the SDK folder anymore (I remember it being there in the past, but maybe that’s not true…).

Is this a known issue and how can I fix it?

@marc got me the firmware binaries directly and loading those via the recovery boot worked. Thanks Marc!
