I did as you said and updated the neopixels firmware but now I get the following error:
Error: Error retrieving Ambient firmware version
/app/node_modules/ambient-attx4/index.js:244: in function 'callback'
builtin/tessel.js:1038: in function 'f'
[T]: src/colony/lua/colony-node.lua:54: in function <[T]: src/colony/lua/colony-node.lua:53>
This seems to be similar to this issue. @evan suggests downgrading to firmware build 0.1.7 but that would obviously override the custom neopixels build. Is there a way to update the ambient module's firmware independently of the main Tessel firmware? I've tried adding the following line of code:
ambientLib.updateFirmware( tessel.port['A'], '../node_modules/ambient-attx4/firmware/src/ambient-attx4.hex');
...but then I just get the following readout before the app exits.
New Ambient module firmware available - updating...
