Hi, I just got my TTGO ESP32 LoRa32 V2.1 1.6.1 with Paxcounter preinstalled. Seems to work flawlessly.
I now wanted to replace Paxcounter with Meshtastic and have a few questions - as I am afraid of frying the hardware.
First of all I compared the pinout with the one from V1.6 - they have the same labels so this should be fine for external hardware.
Does anyone know if the interal pin connection is the same for the V1.6 and V1.6.1?
From what I understand it then should be
firmware-tlora-v2-1-1.6-1.x.x.bin as stated on the hardware support page?
If pin connections should be different - could I destroy the module with flashing the wrong version?
Also I read in an article on TheThingsNetwork that with the V1.6 there are some versions which tend to “explode a connected battery”
The article should contain some pics to find out if the board is affected but unfortunately they are no longer there.
I added a screenshots of my V1.6.1 board - if anyone could tell me if the problem seems to be fixed there I would appreciate that. (I have five pictures ready but am only allowed to post one - I’ll try to add the others in seperate postings).
The pictures also may help @eriktheV-king for his sheet at replace with https)://www.dropbox.com/s/gly6z21qqps7uvc/espMeshtasticBoards_ev01.xls?dl=0 (only two links allowed for me, as I’m a new user, so text only reference) to serve as a new hardware. My hardware looks different from the V1.6 which is shown on the Lilygo product page (see link above).
So any help would be appreciated.
