Flashing Tuya firmware via serial help
I’m trying to flash my Treatlife Outdoor Smart Dimmer and I can see that it has been done successfully at https://templates.blakadder.com/treatlife_DP10.html . The kind gentlemen even mentions how to bypass the MCU.
All was fine until I actually opened it up. I have a typical solder iron and typical hobby skills – not a god, but not a glooper either. However, THIS fucker just looks way too small.
Airpod for scale, I’d need to solder the small IC (Nuvoton), the 5th pin from the bottom on the left: https://imgur.com/a/qsqiQwJ
Any tips? I can’t see myself doing this successfully with the tools and skills I have.
And before you folks suggest doing this wirelessly – I’ve tried, but TuyaConvert reports my firmware is too new and has patched the exploit that allowed the OTA firmware hack.
