    New Teensy 2.0++ hangs

    I got a new Teensy 2.0++ from Adafruit
    Soldered on headers
    Booted it up and blink worked as expected
    Downloaded and ran Teensy Loader to get fast blink to work
    All using a Windows 8.1 laptop

    Then I tried to install Teensyduino
    Had the usual problems with Windows 8.1
    Worked through them but things weren't quite right
    Even the Teensyloader was having problems.

    To verify it wasn't a Windows 8.1 problem, I used a Windows 7 PC.
    Booted up blinking and then the Teensy hung.
    Unplugging and replugging USB clears it a little. It blinks once or twice and then hangs (sometimes with LED on, sometimes off).

    If I let the teensy sit, unplugged, for around 30 minutes and then plug it back in, it will work for a while (including downloading and rebooting) but eventually hangs.

    I am presuming I can't return it for a replacement since I soldered the headers.
    I hesitated even reporting it, but I thought someone else might benefit from my experience.

    Hey, does (any part of) it heat up very much as the time before it 'eventually hangs' passes?

    I would prefer to think that with such a thing, a breakout board basically, the warranty should withstand attaching headers (provided of course handling was careful and the iron tip hasn't physically damaged anything relevant!)

    Have you checked with Adafruit if ONLY attaching the headers does void their warranty? That would be worth blogging about imho!
