I’ve been away for awhile and have found there’s been a lot of advancements with the firmware so I decided to flash my existing Meshtastic devices.
Unexpected error: The firmware binary is invalid (magic byte=50, should be E9)
Running ESPHome Flasher GUI on Linux Mint.
Full error readout below:

I read this post here, and discovered it didn’t relate to my issue as I understand my hardware is supported.
I also read this post, although I can’t “specify the port with -p and the firmware with -f” as I am using the GUI for ESPHome Flasher.
Any advice? Cheers!
