This ticket is a duplicate of #14136. My accident attached the patch twice and didn't find how to remove one.

Patching as suggested on #14136/#15282 will result in a situation where simply pressing the RESET button on the bottom will cause FACTORY RESET to be run. This is due to GPIO high/low state being incorrect as a result of the above change and virtually the RESET
button is in the pressed-down state the entire time. When it is then physically pressed, that causes the opposite, release, to be triggered and since to the board it seemed that the button was pressed long before it was released, the FACTORY RESET results.

The attached patch works as expected. I have verified both the incorrect functionality as well as after fixing the issue as described in the patch and flashing the resulting firmware to a Hornet-UB board.

This change has been committed to trunk as of;a=commitdiff;h=beed4d82d6a0154b0cd5f7b84e2180215ace6718 and will be present in Chaos Calmer release. I've updated the corresponding GPIO info on

A thank you goes to lsoltero for keeping the issue alive toward Chaos Calmer after jrosen posted it for Barrier Breaker (#14136)!
