Please help me to unblock the SPI ports on my Intel Joule device!
To anyone reading: calling intel technical support on the phone does not work.
I just want to write code, super frustrating!
I first found out about this because of: https://askubuntu.com/questions/878445/error-illegal-arguments-for-construction-of-exports-spi%23com... https://askubuntu.com/questions/878445/error-illegal-arguments-for-construction-of-exports-spi# comment1401949_878445

Intel ref-os-iot in live mode
After install ref-os-iot to the EMMIC

I tried the same for `m.SPI(0)`

Three months and still no fix? Wow! I just bought an Edison board so I can start writing some of the firmware and get experience with mraa.
Sounds like this is not going to get solved anytime soon.
Intel, please invest more resources so we can actually make with your tools!
Jose I looked at your private message and will answer when the SPI port is working
