Support for the spark-core board.
Spark's hardware dev kit, the Spark Core, provides everything you need to build a connected product. We combine a powerful ARM Cortex M3 micro-controller with a Wi-Fi module to get you started quickly. The design is open source, so when you're ready to integrate the Core into your product, you can.

First of all make sure the your spark core device is detected and can be accessed properly. In Linux you might have to adept your udev rules accordingly:
now replug the usb cable and flash.
To flash RIOT to the spark core you need to install
dfu-util (tested with 0.7 and 0.8).
Power the device and press the the
mode button until the LED flashes yellow/orange: now the device is ready to get flashed.
To run RIOT it is required that you run the newest spark bootloader on your core: from https://community.spark.io/t/replace-core-firmware-with-riot-os/7007/7
