Flashing

Flash using Tasmota Web Installer and select tasmota32s3-lvgl option.
For esptool.py download f.e. tasmota32s3-lvgl.factory.bin and run esptool.py write_flash 0x0 tasmota32s3-lvgl.factory.bin.

Auto-configuration

After flashing Tasmota, open the web UI of the device and navigate to Configuration -> Auto-configuration. Select your device from the drop-down and click Apply Configuration.
The device will restart and will be automagically configured.

An IoT development platform from Espressif, primarily intended for use with Espressif’s ESP-IDF, but will work with Tasmota.

Uses an ESP32-S3-WROOM-1-N16R8 module with 16 MB flash and 8 MB PSRAM.

When the board is booted into debug by holding BOOT and pressing the RESET button the USB-Serial chip on the “UART” USB port exposes a serial connection. This can be used to easily flash new firmware.

Display Setup

Setting up the display requires a few console commands in addition to the template settings:

DisplayHeight 240
DisplayWidth 320
