re: The tool that comes in the box. The hex side is just about too small for the hex nuts

Ok, well… This thing doesn’t appear as a device that the Arduino 1.6.4 IDE can connect to
I don’t have time for this.

@Resseguie it's an uno but you need to use the driver that's in the repo. It uses the ch340g serial to USB chips that became popular after the ftdi apocalypse. Am surprised you haven't come across a board using that before now... You mustn't be buying many cheap arduino ;P
Oops. On mobile. That was @rwaldron

I buy plenty of cheap Arduinos, they appear with no problem.

the three dollar unos on the alixepress use that driver. They also with a cool mecha thing silkscreened on them :)
driver i used a while back kinda scared me with a warning on mac, and wasn't included on chromeos
