ESP32-S3 DevKitC-1 V1.0

Hello,

I am trying to use ESP32-S3 DevKitC-1 V1.0 from espressif. I have trouble to add this as a new device into ESPHome, because there is no option to select the device from the list of ESP32 devices.
I tried other ESP32 options and I am getting error regarding the wrong chip version during flash.
If there is any solution for that, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

@rstu have you tried

esp32:
  board: nodemcu-32s

that board is a “classic” esp32 and will most likely not work with a esp32-s3 which is different.

One can try something like this:

esp32:
  variant: esp32s3
  board: esp32-s3-devkitc-1

look at this link below, it something to try. rstu hasn’t told us what ones they have tried so it a suggestion that just could work.

You get an “unknown board type” error if you use

board: esp32-s3-devkitc-1

I get the same error, I’ve been scratching my head all day trying to get the ESP32-S3 wroom 1 chips i ordered to work with esphome.

hope someone figures this out… I have tried many things but no go

@rstu @Zetta @whyjguy @harfordhawk

try this

esp32:
  board: nodemcu-32s
  framework:
    type: arduino

or this

esp32:
  board: nodemcu-32s
  framework:
    type: arduino
    version: 2.0.0

or this the latest version

esp32:
  board: nodemcu-32s
  framework:
    type: arduino
    version: 5.1.1

or this

esp32:
  board: esp32-c3-devkitm-1
  framework:
    type: esp-idf
    version: recommended

more info here

just tried all those and get the same error every time. “Configuration does not match the platform of the connected device. Expected an ESP32S3 device.”

esp32:
  board: esp32-s3-devkitc-1
  framework:
    type: esp-idf
    platform_version: 4.4.0
  variant: esp32s3

or

esp32:
  board: esp32-s3-devkitc-1
  framework:
    type: arduino
    version: 2.0.3
    platform_version: 5.1.0
  variant: esp32s3

trying those same result… thanks, I am now erasing the flash to see if something else is up

nothing working… I guess will wait until esphome supports this board

Bummer … good luck… sorry I could help :pensive:
