Flashing binary file into ESP32 heltec

I’m trying to flash the following firmware onto a heltec v2 esp32: Firmware | Meshtastic

I followed the following commands given in the following link to flash the .bin file into the esp32: https://randomnerdtutorials.com/flashin … 2-esp8266/

Once the .bin file is flashed to the esp32, do we need to do anything to run the binary file or is the firmware automatically installed?
I tried running meshtastic but it did not seem to respond so i’m guessing the firmware was not properly installed.

Someone also suggested that I use the .sh file, but how do I run that script on an esp32?

Please follow the official instructions from the website.
