    Okay who has one?

    I just got mine and I'm having trouble getting it up and running.

    Installed the "Sphero BB-8" App on my iPhone 6+ and I get to this screen and it just stalls...[​IMG]

    Checked the Sphero Support and tried a Reset and again it stalls at this screen.

    After watching a few Unboxing videos on YouTube, my guess is the App is trying to connect to Sphero to download a Firmware update.

    Any thoughts?

    What was the issue and the fix (in case someone else might run into something similar)?

    Ooops, sorry...

    It was a Pairing issue between my iPhone and BB-8. it took a while but I kept trying and the App finally connected.

    I had to delete the app and reinstall to get it to pair correctly. It is definitely a programming oversight to not have a way to exit this step and try to start over. Or on a force quit to reset in a way that increases chances of connecting.

    Here is a good and complete unboxing for the Star Wars BB-8 Droid. It is not as easy to use as most would think. The controls are tough to get used to.
