Can't for the life of me Zigbee2MQTT running

I have flashed 3 different SONOFF Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus Gateway ( * Base on TI CC2652P + CP2102N) cannot get any of them in to booloader mode. But I think i successfully flashed them through python script.

I’m running home assistant OS on Synology VMM the dongle shows up. I fixed the port in the Z2M configuration. But no matter what I do I get the same message:

Please help me fix this!!!

quick google search of this message yields a number of threads referencing this message. This one might be a start, have a close look at your configuration.yaml. Modifying this file, either or both via command line and GUI can cause some issues. Check changes after each edit and save.

Good hunting!
