Has anyone had success installing onto the Xiao S3 board? I found the topic here and tried both intallation websites mentioned. They both claim to flash without issue, but the board never comes up on Wi-Fi. I tried this on several different brand new boards.
Wow, thanks! that helped a lot. I got it to build. But, I am on Windows and having a hard time getting it to flash. The flashing process errors out around every time. I literally copied and pasted in your [env:esp32s3dev_8MB] section.
I’m on Windows, so I tried the build/flash button in VSCode on two different boards. Each time, it builds fine, but the flashing process errors out midway through It says that pySerial is throwing the error.

A serial exception error occurred: Cannot configure port, something went wrong. Original message: PermissionError(13, 'The device does not recognize the command.', None, 22)
Note: This error originates from pySerial. It is likely not a problem with esptool, but with the hardware connection or drivers.

I have tried several lower baudrates (down to 9600), and also trying different cables/connecting directly to the USB port on my PC. Different combinations of cables and baudrates yield different amounts of progress, but none above 70% or so.
Also, I can use the Arduino IDE to flash a random sketch, so I don’t think this is a cable or baudrate issue. Any ideas? In the meantime, I’ll try manually using esptool from the command line.
Hey, sorry to bother you again. I got the firmware to compile and flash from the VSCode IDE on Mac. Still not sure why my flash process from VSCode on Win kept barfing - it works fine when flashing any other project than this one!
Anyway, I got the code to flash onto the Xiao S3…but the WLED-AP doesn’t come up as an option. So I am not sure if it’s actually running. Is there something that I need to do to make sure that everything is ending up in the right memory location when it’s getting flashed?
I am pretty sure that my hardware is fine, because I can upload/run a random Wifi test sketch on it, it connects to my home wifi fine.
Try the exact process in this post with the old files Discord , i personally only tested on Lolins3 but I seen confirmation from many other guys used it with other boards , and if that works then OTA latest build and yes AP might take a bit of time to show or do not show unless you reset the device after flashing
