Ability to downgrade firmware

 Hi,


I'm one of the maintainers of the opensource project https://github.com/mirko/SonOTA , however with the latest release there appears to be certificate pinning (or similar) happening. This means that users can only upgrade the firmware in the Sonoff devices if they open it up, and solder in headers.


Using this OTA method users could get all of the benefits of an open platform, without the the need to open up the device and solder etc.


To allow customers to still do this, it would be great if you could either, provide a way of having an alternative update server (with no certificate pinning), or allow using to downgrade to previous versions of firmware that did allow SonOTA to work.

Your help is appreciated to allow every to benefit from the open platform.

Thank you.

i full support this request

I would like to support this request. Allowing open source use of the hardware would make the devices the goto solution for smart home systems.

 Also from here a full support to be able to flash custom firmware without opening the device.
