I'm unable to reproduce the esp module firmware upgrade error on my Metro M4 AirLift Lite. Please try following the steps on this page to upgrade your ESP32 AirLift's firmware: https://learn.adafruit.com/upgrading-es ... -one-board and reinstall beta 21.

However, I am able to get the continuous board reboot (proposed patch is here: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Wi ... o/pull/205).

I've included a build UF2 from that pull request, could you confirm it works on your end as well?

That build gives a quick warning on firmware, boots, and connects successfully.

It is still claiming: 1.0.0-beta.20 in wipper_boot_out.txt ???

I will proceed through the passthrough / upgrade procedure.

Boot, firmware notice, success....

Is that image the Metro M4 w/ AirLift or Metro S2?

I am 99% sure I was still running the beta.20 before the ESP AirLift firmware update. It never said it was running anything other than beta.20.

After the ESP module firmware upgrade...

- The pull build keeps reloading as METROM4BOOT only.
- beta.21 no longer shows the ESP firmware version warning, but keeps restarting.
- and, beta.20 still seems reliable, and no longer warnings on the ESP firmware version.

Oops, linked the wrong one..
If you go to... https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Wi ... 1669203746 -> click "build-files" -> download zip -> `metro_m4...airliftlite.uf2` should be in there.

It should display on IO as beta.22.

Got it - thank you.

Up & running, on the Metro M4 w/ AirLift. So far it's doing much better than .21.
Got beta.22 on M4 Metro

My PyPortal was having similar issues. Complaining on ESP firmware & frequent reboots. I've upgraded the ESP firmware, and will try out .22 on it as well.
