Trying to get this cute little ESP32 module to work with this cute 2.2" SPI TFT LCD

But the ESP is cursed, and the LCD is cursed too.

The processor has 512 kB internal PSRAM but we can't get micropython to see more than 73 k, and we have absolutely no idea where that RAM is. Compiled firmware like 30 times with every possible permutation of the relevant config options...


@uint8_t made this joke back in 2008 in the openvz forums. no one ever got it.
should have had the meme pics handy, back then :)

@uint8_t now that it's running the official latest micropython release the ram is available.

"don't worry, we have the official micropython release at home"

official micropython release at home:

@uint8_t @ln that SHA256sum would win you a block of bitcoin I guess.
