You say beacon hex flashed to ble nano2 works (advertises).
1. Does hello world sample work (print out on UART)?
2. Does the samples/basic/blinky work (flash LED) ?
Lets proceed with these.

The same .hex file flashed to a redbear ble nano2 does

Can you check the hw revision for your Nitrogens (should be
v0.9, v1.0 or v1.1)?
I got several from v0.9 and v1.1 and they are all functional.
tested the beacon sample from Zephyr 1.9 and it is working

The nitrogen build uses pyOCD to flash the device. This works
However, copying a .bin file to /media/$USER/MBED gives theYeah, this looks like an issue in the firmware flashed in
"The interface firmware FAILED to parse the hex file" in
If I copy a .hex file to the MBED disk, it isn't processed and
remains in the folder.
Both boards exhibit identical behavior.
Talking with Seeeds, it seems they originally flashed

pyocd-flashtool flashes the device with the expected console
The radio doesn't work.
I've ordered another 2 from Digikey and will see how they behave.
I ordered them from Seeed, I never thought to check if they were

If anybody from Nordic is listening, maybe they have an opinion.

Hello and blinky work. BT does not.
And, yes nitrogen_beacon.hex from http://builds.96boards.org/releases/n
itrogen/zephyr-1.8/ flashed to the nano2 advertises. There's no console
output as I explained previously.
I'm now more convinced that the devices somehow got damaged in transit
I'll report when I get the ones I ordered from Digikey. I expect them
to work just fine.
If you are curious about what happened to the radios, I'd be glad to
send you the 2 I got from Seeed.
The shipment didn't seem to have been opened. I'm pretty ESD conscious
at my end.
