Tasmota on HiHome WPP-16S1 smart plug

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f77fa773728>

I have the HiHome WPP-16S1 smart plug. link

I am trying to flash tasmota firmware onto it and i’m trying to find the correct pads to connect my flasher to.
There are no obvious pads to solder TX/RX to and the plug is very difficult to open completely.

Here is a picture of the board.

I’we been unable to remove the PCB yet. I think i need to de-solder a few things before i can do that.

This is the chip on the board, the ESP8266EX
UART0 is on pin 24 and 25, upper leftmost pins and UART1 is on pin 14 and 23
I’m unsure if i should use UART 0 or 1 for flashing, i have tried probing for the pins on the front side of the PCB but they seem to go to a via and maybe end up on the bottom of the PCB which i have no access to yet.
Any help would be appreciated

Hey, i just got one of these yesterday, and flashed it OTA with Tuya-Convert.

I used the template for the HiHome WPP-16S, and the only issue I’m seeing is my voltage being recorded incorrectly (~275V on a 230V power grid).

Remember to add the model type template:

I flashed a couple of these plugs with Tuya-Convert, but unfortunately bricked one when I was updating the firmware. Took it out of the socket too early :frowning:
Do you maybe know a way to unbrick it, by using the soldering method and how this can be done? Any help is appreciated!
