AWS Edukit as normal Core2 for Uiflow
md last edited by
I have a question
Is it possible to flash AWS Edukit for usage of uiflow latest version as a normal Core2?
Or more simple way,
Can I use AWS Udukit as a normal Core2 then again as AWS Edukit eith a flash possibility?
What shall I do?
Is it possible in the future?
Thank you in advance

I don't have a AWS Edukit so my assumption might be incorrect, but comparing the schematics of the two (AWS Edukit and plain M5Core2) I cannot find a difference, except for some additional hardware in the AWS Edukit (e.g. secure element, LEDs). So a AWS Edukit with M5Core2 UIFlow installed should act like a plain M5Core2 just fine.
To get M5Core2 UIFlow installed you can use M5Burner to flash
To go back you can reinstall AWS factory firmware. Follow the steps here.

Yes, you can flash your AWS Edukit M5 Core 2 with UIFlow_Core2. I just did mine today and it works great with UIFlow. Within a few minutes I had a useful app running on the device.
You will lose access to the LEDs and the microphone as those are not supported (yet?) in the UIflow:

Hi! I flashed mine with uiflow and then micropython, all worked.
Core2 for AWS is just a normal Core2 but wth the base for AWS that also works perfectly with uiflow. I can control the leds and everything. the only difference with the other Core2 is the color and the base for AWS witch has a secure "element" that you can use or not use.

@bricoms, Can you please expand on how you got the RGB left/right bars working on the AWS with UiFlow? I'm using V1.7.14, enabled power, varied brightness, changed colors, and still black as night. Thanks

I figured out how to work the Core2 for AWS LED strips. Add a custom RGB LED Unit with custom port. SDA/TX is on 25, and SCL/RX on 22. The Number of LEDs is 10. Then set the neopixel device as you want it. LEDs 1-5 are the right side, and 6-10 are left.
Remember to also Enable the bus power mode.
