Hi, I’m trying to flash Tasmota/ESPHome to a MOES Smart IR Controller.
It has a TYWE3S chip, so I think it should be possible.
From the outside is the same as the one in the guide , but the board is a bit different.
I tried to use tuya-convert but it doesn’t work. It seams that it has a newer, patched firmware.
It doesn’t have pin holes, so I had to solder wires directly to the chip TX/RX/GIPO0.
I’m able to put it into flashing mode, and connect to it with
I can get flash id, erase flash, and I’m able to
write_flash the Tasmota firmware and a bare ESPHome firmware.
Output when flashing:
esptool.py v3.0 Serial port /dev/serial0 Connecting.... Detecting chip type... ESP8266 Chip is ESP8266EX Features: WiFi Crystal is 26MHz MAC: 8c:aa:b5:fd:8e:3d Uploading stub... Running stub... Stub running... Configuring flash size... Compressed 427120 bytes to 292534... Wrote 427120 bytes (292534 compressed) at 0x00000000 in 26.4 seconds (effective 129.3 kbit/s)... Hash of data verified. Leaving... Hard resetting via RTS pin...
But when I boot in normal mode nothing happens, no AP Wifi is created to connect to.
I flash from a Raspberry Pi, and I tried to leave the serial connected after flashing, to see any bootlog.
Set the baudrate to the non-standard 74880 and was able to get this output:
With GPIO0 Floating:
ets Jan 8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(1,0)
With GPIO0 to GND
ets Jan 8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(1,7)
It seems that it is still in flashing boot mode, because of the (1,x) according to this resource
But no reference on what the 0 or the 7 mean.
I made the mistake of not backing up the stock firmware, so now it seems to be bricked
Any ideas are welcomed.
