OK for Linux users that have already been using RFduino with the help of WINE for the RFDLoader the location has changed for 1.6.3+.

Drop your RFDLoader bash script into this folder...
~/.arduino15/packages/RFduino/tools/RFDLoader/1.2/

RFDLoader
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/wine ~/.arduino15/packages/RFduino/hardware/RFduino/2.3.0/RFDLoader.exe $1 com1 $3

Make it's permissions 755.

For first time RFduino users on Linux...
You need to install WINE.
Your user must be a member of group dialout.
You need to have a symlink for your WINE com1: port to linux USB linux device for the RFduino.
~/.wine/dosdevices/com1 -> dev/ttyUSB0

Installed Arduino V1.6.3

Can not get it to allow me to select the board.

Shows libraries and example programs.

Compiler can not find the .h files either.

Can you describe your OS, etc.

Hello
Is it any way to manually install rfduino 2.3 for arduino 1.6.3?
Where to get binaries?
Following the way described in https://github.com/RFduino/RFduino/blob/master/README.md will not works if you behind real proxy.

Thank you

I don't think so. Arduino has moved to this new approach believing it is way more simpler on newbies, I guess. But, for now, it looks like the only way to add boards and librairies to the new way Arduino does things is via their IDE itself. Which means users have to wait for all their favorite board makers to come up the support for the new way.  At least the RFduino team seems to be on top of it.

Not sure what you mean by a real proxy. I think you're saying that your proxy server will not let you connect to rduino.com:8080?

I'm behind proxy and this is only way to be connected to internet, so if put my real proxy into "proxy" field "proxy:8080", I will have access to generic arduino board databases, but if i will put rfduino.com, I will have no connection to internet at all.This mean I will not able to setup new  rfduino at any way unless manual.

Where are the back level libraries?  I'm running IDE 1.6.0 and I do not want to upgrade to IDE 1.6.3 (and run hundreds of regression tests on my other products).  The ONLY link I found is to the most current library.

Maybe you can add the RFDuino to this page for Arduino 1.6.4?

Instructions do not seem to work for 1.6.4.

I get the following error when I open board manager.
http://downloads.arduino.cc/packages/package_index.json file signature verification failed. File ignored.
Can anybody confirm they are seeing the same issue ?

Confirming I receive the same error.

I successfully added the RFDuino board with no issues using Arduino IDE 1.6.3 on Mac Yosemite per Github 1.6.3+ instructions.

Today I upgraded to Arduino 1.6.4 IDE and was unsuccessful getting RFDuino added to IDE 1.6.4 receiving the same file signature error.

Yep, me too. The Arduino people are at it again. Not only does installing 1.6.4 not work, it also screws up any 1.6.3 installation you already had working with RFduino 2.3.x installed. Ugh! So going back to it is a bit of a hassle. For me going back to 1.6.3 and then going into the board manager I see it thinks the RFduino is already INSTALLED. Hmm! Then exiting out of the board manager suddenly 1.6.3 is back to working. These versions of Arduino IDE should definitely be in  beta mode IMHO.

So until the RFduino Team mentions 1.6.4 stick with the Arduino 1.6.3 IDE.

And take the '+' out of the announcement title...
