Hi people, sorry for the messy post, I am not sure how to format here yet. I am sure this wont be my last post.
I have recompiled the M5CAM_demo in atom/platformio after a few hiccups and am getting the following error (verbose upload)
*CURRENT: upload_protocol = esptool

The autodetected port is correct, opening it in realterm and toggling camera power.

This is my first time attempting to reprogram this and a search has not brought up anything useful, is there a trick to programming these ? It looks to me that perhaps the reset method is unsuccessful, tried holding the power button down, tried with a lithium cell connected/disconnected. The M5CAM uses the same program method as the wrover-kit so far as I can see from the schematics.
Any ideas for things to try ?
A little trickier to add jumpers to toggle pins with these boards.
