I tried to upload sketch to my RFDuino. I can select the RFDuino port. But I can't upload cos I can't select the RFDuino board.

I followed the installation steps listed here but I don't see RFduino package in Board Manager after I finished the steps above.

I am using Mac Mojave and Arduino IDE v1.8.9. I have tried it with v1.6.6 but results the same.

  • @SilvioCro, did you try it? – Juraj Feb 4 '19 at 17:00
  • @Juraj When I did those steps(in my case it was STM32 package - this link, it worked. Go AppData\Local\Arduino15 and delete package_index.json.sig and package_index.json files – SilvioCro Feb 4 '19 at 18:07

Turns out that rfduino.com's domain is gone, so the link will always return with an error downloading. After reading this thread arduino.cc, @pert posted a link for the .json file that used to be at the website you have. I used this link on MacOS Mojave and Arduino v1.8.9 and it worked perfectly!
