Very New, I was able to burn the UI flow and connect. How can I return to using the Arduino IDE?

  • I try to upload and get this error: Arduino: 1.8.19 (Windows 10), Board: "M5Stick-C-Plus, Default, 240MHz (WiFi/BT), 750000, None"

    This report would have more information with
    "Show verbose output during compilation"
    option enabled in File -> Preferences.

  • SOLVED: open your boards.txt file and add the code below...
    (Windows 10 64 bit example)

    • C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\m5stack\hardware\esp32\2.0.5
      (you may need to make hidden folders visible in the top menu section under the view tab)
    • Open the boards.txt file
    • Scroll down to the m5stick-c-plus section of code listed. At the very bottom of this section add the lines:

    Notice the way this is listed for other boards like the stick-c and do the same. You can now use the stick-c plus board listed in the Arduino IDE! You could also just use the stick-c board listed but I had errors in third-party programs.
