     * Make sure that the through-hole support legs are soldered to the PCB (one CM forgot to do it). It greatly reduces the chances of ripping the connector. Contact Dephy if you need assistance with this.     * Make sure that the through-hole support legs are soldered to the PCB (one CM forgot to do it).

   * Having USB connected will prevent a full power-cycle,​ even if you turn the module on & off with the push-button. After reprogramming one or more microcontrollers always do a true power cycle.   * Having USB connected will prevent a full power-cycle,​ even if you turn the module on & off with the push-button.

   * When using Bluetooth we recommend waiting 15s between powering the circuit and starting a stream (from the GUI or the scripts). The RN-42 boots in a slow mode and transitions to fast after 10s. Starting a stream before can create issues.   * When using Bluetooth we recommend waiting 15s between powering the circuit and starting a stream (from the GUI or the scripts).
