I get what you mean, it makes a lot of sense. The one you get is surly the soldering mistake , because they didn't put enough tin on the soldering pad. We definitely could do something to improve structures deign just like what you come up with, but its not gonna help that much if we have the bad soldering.
So, did anyone find a solution. I was about to buy it, but then when I look at the documentation for the power supply voltage I cannot find it! Documentation is quite poor I must add.
I do not need battery operated solution, and the USB power is super ugly and inconvenient!
I need to use external 5V power supply connected to pins inside the board in a professional manner (no pcb hacking). Is this not possible? I cannot believe it!!
Yes it is possible as the Stackable modules provide internal power to M5Stack cores. (Sorry been working on my books and documenting units with demos this weekend.)
The documents I have, show that each stackable module has its own voltage regulator that delivers 5 volts to pin 28 of the internal bus (+5V).
If you look at the Proto module you will see that these pins are marked ready for you. https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/module/proto
Bump - this is not a platformio Question - the M5Stack hardware has been designed such that one cannot use a JTAG debugger for the esp32. as @mcbridejc states the JTAG MTMS line (GPIO14) has been used as the CS for the LCD module - all other JTAG lines are available on the M5Stack bus.
Can we request that the next revision of the HW uses a different GPIO for LCD CS?
I had the same problem. But I did decide to rename all my APs and every device connected. 30 minutes later, still can't get a device code, and it seems like it got stuck booting into the "Press next for instructions" screen, so I can't change the wifi if I wanted to :(
@heybin I’m sorry, I don’t understand why when you have it working for the stick and the stack. Looks like it’s time for M5Stack to build a UIFLOW port of the firmware for the camera. If you build it from the sicks firmware then half the work is done for you!
