TASMOTA now supports ESP32. The open-source firmware was initially designed for ESP8266 and ESP8285 based Sonoff home automation devices providing an alternative to eWelink firmware with support for MQTT protocol allowing integration with home automation frameworks like Domoticz or openHAB.
It has since then expanded to support hardware from various brands, but until recently you were still limited to products with ESP8266 or ESP8285, and the good news is that TASMOTA has now gotten experimental support for ESP32 boards and products such as TTGO T-Camera.
You’ll find basic documentation and well as Tasmota ESP32 (aka Tasmota32) firmware files for LilyGO TTGO T-Camera board, displays, and I2C sensor on Tasmota Github.io website. The ESP32 port is based on Jörg Schüler-Maroldt’s work.
If you’d like to give it a try you can either download Tasmota32 firmware or built it from scratch following the instructions in the documentation page we linked above. But basically, you’d need to rename
platformio_override.ini and uncomment tasmota32 in line #28, then run
in order to create
tasmota32.bin file. Finally, flash the image as follows:
esptool.py --chip esp32 --port COM5 --baud 921600 --before default_reset --after hard_reset write_flash -z --flash_mode dout --flash_freq 40m --flash_size detect 0x1000 bootloader_dout_40m.bin 0x8000 partitions.bin 0xe000 boot_app0.bin 0x10000 tasmota32.bin
