Error installing WLED software onto ESP32-s3

I keep getting an error every time I try to install WLED to a Tiny ESP32-S3
When I connect the board the light comes on and there are no issues. I can select the COM port but then the after a minute or so of the circle of death there is an error
I have heard rumours this board is not good for WLED - is this correct ?

Hi Michael,

I did some digging, and it seems the S3 is still experimental, as there are a few ways to configure flash storage of code:

Though a manual flashing process through esptool is given!

I’m not a fan of discords for storing knowledge (forums are better for this as they are public and searchable) but you may need to join there for the bleeding edge developments on the S3.

Hi Michael

Welcome to the forum!!

Here’s a couple tid-bits of knowledge and some pre-compiled images I stumbled across that should get you going (in some capacity).

You’ll have to download and use esptool to flash the board as James listed above.

If you run into any issues let us know!
