M5 Stack Core 2 AWS bricked and my experiences
I have an M5 Stack Core 2 with AWS.
Following the intro screen, I tried the AWS demo programs - way too complex for a newbie, but they worked. Eventually from google, I found you need to install M5Burner and that helped a lot. I think the AWS demo should give some info about using UIFlow, Burner etc
So then I tried UIFlow_Core2 and after uploading a couple of sketches I found I couldn't turn my Core2 back on. Bricked?
Eventually I read a post about hearing the PC beep when disconnecting the Core2 Usb cable, which I had noticed. So I found installing the Burner app a couple of times with the Core2FactoryTest program eventually resolved my Bricked core issue. And then everything starts perfectly again - phew.
I'm finding that I need to switch between the Burner install of UIFlow_Core2 Configuration and exiting and restarting UIFlow when I want to install a new UIFlow sketch version. Is this normal?
Overall I'm happy with the Core2 but I must say with the bricking issue I nearly sent the thing back to the supplier in the US, and the UIFlow/Burner switching issues are a pain.
I hope the installing of Burner helps other people resolve their problems too. Anyone else having similar issues?
RE: My M5 Stack Fire is Dead or Bricked somehow
I have a Core2. Mine was bricked - USB sounded when disconnecting in Windows 10. Only got it brand new yesterday and was using UIFlow, tried everything. In Arduino it could send to COM4 but then still black screen, still no reset. Then someone above said use M5Burner. Eventually reflashed the Core2FactoryTest app and wahey - green light and a beep and now everything works again. I'm adding this comment as I'm a techie for 35 years and if I run into problems like this I'm sure others will with less success.
