I highly doubt that, all M5Stack likes to do is:
1. Buy overpriced connectors
2. Limit the “openness” and control the marked of modules
I love the idea and package of the M5Stack, but the connectors are just stupid, require high forces, difficult to find, … .
Maybe I will use other very common low-profile types, do it in FreeCAD, and KiCAD so we can get rid of that nonsense connectors for 3rd Party and custom modules.

you could pip install a pyserial module to solve it.
I tried that but the problem persists. As a quick fix, I just flashed it using a window virtual machine.
the LED always RED? which program are you use?
Yes, but after I flashed the new firmware everything is behaving well.
which program are you use?
It turned RED, after I tried to flash it with the newer esptool (2.8) as I showed in my initial topic
we will fix this bug in next version.
Have a nice day
I'm glad I haven't (completely) lost my mind.
I haven't had any progress with this issue besides creating a workaround with a Proto and some Grove ports- assembling a sort of..."Port Board." It certainly isn't pretty, but here's a pic for fun:
It's 2 "Port B"s - to accommodate devices that want GP26, GP36, or BOTH. And a simple male header to Serial2. (16/17)
I've had some thoughts on other things to try (mostly in configuration or digging deeper into M5 and ESP32 libraries), but have been busy with another project that requires much smaller hardware. If you (or anyone) find something that in any way changes this functionality, please post.
All info helps.
Hello, Did you end up finding a solution ? This is my issue and I think it may be related :
Hello, I am trying to integrate a RTC module (DS3231). It works fine as long as I don't use the M5Stack library. As soon as I combine M5.begin() with Wire.begin() there seems to be a conflict. Scanning I2C reveals 2 devices :
0x57 - M5 LCD ?
0x68 - RTC Module DS3231
Any clue as to what is going wrong ? What PINS are used by the LCD ? I suppose 21 (SDA) and 18 (SCL) ?
I didn't say it was clean, it's a workaround. You can buy grove to dupont converters.
@skink said in Application M5 AC Socket:
Hi at all,
is there a test program or an EasyLoader program with which I test the M5 AC socket !?
I have M5 stack with RS485 to TTL Unit or also a M5 Stick-C with M5StickC RS485 HAT.
The only known information is found here: https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/app/ac_socket . I’m still waiting on one to be delivered
@lukasmaximus Thanks so much for your reply! Sorry I missed it. I found the Arduino sample and confirmed it works. Somehow I had been led to believe from issues on Github that it was only supported on Fire, but the battery sample works on my M5 Basic (black).
