I am trying to reset the Air using the USB stick instructions, by creating a file on the stick, and starting the Air with the stick inserted.

I tried 4 times, and made sure the file is named correctly (factory_reset, with no .TXT, empty document), but still the Air does not reset

The issue is that I have no internet connectivity now (house rebuild), but the Air is stuck in flashing-blue mode, not enabling the internal WiFi. I suspect is locked trying to find the old network)

Can you give me some hints how to reset it, to force the internal hotspot to be enabled? Note that also tried unplugging and plugging back the USB WiFi adapter, and boot the speaker, but same symptom

Any hint is more than appreciated.
