I checked this document: https://espeasy.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... chips.html
Here it says ESP32-C6 Not yet supported. Sparkfun DEV 22924 is based on ESP32-C6.

- I hadn't noticed there are also 8MB and 16MB flash configuration of these ESP32-C6 units available (I ordered a couple from Ali for testing ;))
- Most likely the flash configuration for all ESP32 units will be changed to use the Safeboot model (small safe-boot App-partition with minimal ESPEasy, and a normal App-partition containing the MAX build, the rest of the flash will be LittleFS formatted file-storage), that's why we haven't yet added all kinds of builds for these new units.

For now you could install a 4MB build on it, but for ESP32-C6 there are only a few available...

(NB: Ignore the other response, that's not very useful, as you noticed)

Here it says ESP32-C6 Not yet supported. Sparkfun DEV 22924 is based on ESP32-C6.
I've not yet marked the ESP32-C2 and -C6 as being supported for 2 reasons:
- We plan on changing the flash layout, so better not have many sensors in the field with these as this lowers the threshold for changes which will require a complete reflash via serial
- ESP-IDF5.1 is required for these and this is not yet officially released.

However they do work just fine and you can also flash them via the web flasher.
But there are only "normal" and "custom" builds available for the C2 and C6 at this moment for the reasons I mentioned.

N.B. Not even the ESP32-Arduino repo has ESP32-C2 listed as officially supported and I have reported quite a few issues to both Espressif as well as the Arduino folks to fix as there are (and were) lots (!!!) of errors regarding internal registers, flash settings, etc.

So yes you can already use them and they have been running quite stable here, but be prepared for some re-flashing in the not so far future when we change the flash layout of those (and later all other 4M flash ESP32-variants) so we can make "MAX" builds for all ESP32-variants even with only 4M flash (2M flash ESP32-variants will not be supported !)

I can add a MAX 16M build for these as that will not require a change in flash layout.
However it would be a good idea if it could be tested before we include it in the official build.
Just to make sure Espressif didn't do the same as with the S3 when they introduced a 16M flash version resulting in lots of bootloops due to completely incompatible ways of addressing SPI flash. (that was with octal wired (OPI) SPI bus which isn't quad-spi compatible)

Edit:
See page 4: https://cdn.sparkfun.com/assets/e/e/4/2 ... asheet.pdf
It seems to be using Quad-SPI, so that should probably be not a problem.

I've added a MAX build for the 8MB and 16 MB Flash models of ESP32-C6 in PR #4997

Can you please these these from the Actions Run
