Firmware update for ESP32-S3-BOX-3 crashes HA

Well, that didn’t work. Missing picture and font files, missing folders.
I kinda thought my 4amp power supply may have been an issue but I changed it over to a 5amp and it still didn’t help. Then I thought maybe the box3 itself was bad, so I tried to re-flash the original box3 demo using the Espressif “Launchpad” browser based flasher AND IT WORKED just fine.
So now I have a good box3 that unlike everybody else I’m unable to use for HA as intended. Something’s not right but I can’t figure out what it is.
