@cepics you could try setup the baud to 115200. then try again. or contact our store. we will help you solve it. as soon as possible
no way!!! Atom serial port doesn't appear in the serial port list..... more than one cable tested....
No, the is (un)fortunately no Windows machine. I'm a little confused about the fact, that the above mentioned firmware is running without any problem. So there needs to be a connection between mac to m5atom in some way — or how is it writing to the device?

My new m5stick-C are showing up on the MacOS (10.15.3) as M5 Serial Converter, and in the Arduino IDE (latest edition). I have applied the updater as suggested in this thread, and still get this response when trying to upload from the IDE to the device: "fork/exec /Applications/Arduino 2.app/Contents/Java/tools-builder/ctags/5.8-arduino11/ctags: bad CPU type in executable
Error compiling for board M5Stick-C."
@rschdev clearly. this is a compiling error . you should check the error information , and check you program.
@herrlehmann did you installed the FTDI driver? you could try delete both below files. then connect your device try again.
I had access to a Windows machine and was able to use the easy loader on my M5Atom Matrix. It is working on Windows.
For my mac:
Yes, I installed the FTDI driver, but they did not work. I've removed them as suggested, but it didn't change anything. There is still no device appearing in /dev/, so it is not accessible.
@m5stack did you dig any deeper into this? I'm still unable to use the M5Atom Matrix on my mac with Catalina. I started over again by installing and deinstalling stuff, but no new device appears. The system recognizes the M5Atom Matrix by naming a M5 Serial Converter with following information:
Hersteller-ID: 0x0403 (Future Technology Devices International Limited)
Geschwindigkeit: Bis zu 12 MBit/s
Hersteller: M5STACK Inc.
Standort-ID: 0x14500000 / 6
Verfügbare Stromstärke (mA): 500
Erforderliche Stromstärke (mA): 100
Zusätzlicher Betriebsstrom (mA): 0
I also applied the firmware update many times successfully.
@m5stack : Any other ideas? I'd like to play with it.

@nsfilho don't update to 10.15.04....
@m5stack : Yes, I did. By further investigating the driver, it looks like they are not working due to signing issues. I found this thread https://www.ftdicommunity.com/index.php?topic=409.msg1171#msg1171
I'm waiting on this rerelease, than I'll let you know. Thanks.
