The M5Stack support is a little bit bad... loboris MicroPython_ESP32_psRAM_LoBo fork seems to have the best support with e.g.: Display etc. But it's not maintained anymore and away from mainline MicroPython and merging back to upstream is ticky, see: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=6042

So, M5Stack stuff is good hardware with bad software support... As many other china stuff, isn't it?

M5Stack/M5StickC (UIFlow) MicroPython firmware was based on MicroPython_ESP32_psRAM_LoBo until UIFlow < v1.3.2, then it startd to use official MicroPython with some modifications.

Current version of UIFlow MicroPython is v1.4.4 :
https://github.com/EeeeBin/UIFlow-Firmware/tree/beta
Or the firmwares in .zip :
http://firmware-repo-list.m5stack.com/f ... v1.4.4.zip

I'd suggest to use the offline UIFlow-Desktop-IDE :
https://m5stack.com/pages/download
instead of the online UIFlow :
http://flow.m5stack.com/

Sadly: I didn't find the sources... And that is IMHO the bad side of MIT licence: The sources must not be distributed, because MIT-licensed software can also be re-licensed as proprietary software, as wikipedia says :cry:

Please add a commend about firmware sources here: It's based on Micropython v1.10:
