Hy,
i have successfully installed the Trinket in my switch wchich works great. I used the guide from here and initially flashed the trinket with:

PERMA-CFW (modified UF2 bootloader)
Switchboot_UF2 latest (CTCAer Hekate mod)

Since the initial flash, i am not able to get the trinket in flash mode again.
So i thought maybe it only works when installed in the switch for some magic reasons, but nope - no flash mode.

Is there a trick i overread somewhere? in my sources it is written "press 2 times on the Trinket Reset Switch when the switch is running", but theres no new drive on my PC when i connect the switch.
Any Tipps? Thank you!

EDIT: do not know why it was working the first time, but installed drivers from https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Windows_Drivers/releases/, solved :yayswitch:

Hi,

I'm having the same problem, but installing that driver didn't work for me. I'm on Windows 10

Second thing i had to learn the hard way: double click doesnt mean mouse-like double click. You have to wait half a second between the clicks

Yeah, because the Trinket isnt in Flash Mode. I am not that competent, but in my case it was a humanware problem.
Start the switch, then press the button on the trinket, then wait half a second, then again. No it should be in flash mode, indicated by a flashing Trinket-LED.
