I have a wixel shield that I used with my Uno for a previous project. It was extremely useful because I was able to seamlessly upload sketches and debug wirelessly. Going through the manual for the shield I understood that it only needs to connect to 5 pins of the arduino (5V, GND, RESET,TX & RX). I first attempted connected these 5 pins alone (instead of plugging the entire shield) with my Uno and the wireless functionalities worked perfectly. However, when I try to do the same with the Arduino Nano rp2040 connect, I get the "Error while uploading the sketch" message in the IDE. Can someone help me understand if there a simple solution I am missing or are the two (rp2040 and shield) just not compatible?
The things I have tried till now are:
- switching from one of the reset pins to the other.
- Double clicking the reset button on the Nano to enter bootlander mode before uploading the sketch.
