I'm looking to make the SensorTag advertise indefinitely instead of only for two minutes.
I downloaded a copy of the BLE software and found the SensorTag firmware source code. I made the small change to advertise indefinitely instead of two minutes. Now I am stuck at the compiling part. From my research and searching through the forum, it appears that only the IAR embedded workbench is able to compile the code. The 30 day evaluation copy is not an option due and the $2k+ cost of the workbench just for compiling this one change of code is not going to happen.
Is there any other option? Is there a copy of the firmware with this change floating around? I feel like this would be a common problem with the sensortags, is there any other way to get around this?
Once I have the adjusted firmware, I plan to use OTA for updating.
