    You need to flash Tasmota or one of the other custom firmware to the sonoff device first.

    If you look through the Tasmota wiki there is a bit of information there. https://github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota/wiki/HomeSeer

        After flashing will it still work with Alexa and EweLink?

            You will likely need to flash via direct hardware connection i.e. via USB-to-Serial as the new firmware on the devices does not allow sonOTA via WiFi flashing.
            I just finished hours trying to do sonOTA and my devices running firmware 3.x do not obey the HTTP POST directive at stage 2
            I finally found info corroborating my findings. I also found this https://www.superhouse.tv/31-sonoff-...configuration/ for what looks like not-to-expensive ready-made hardware to assist in the endeavour, and some step-by-step instructions...

              Do you know when 3.x firmware was released with 4CH Pro? I know I flashed OTA about 6 months ago. For the Sonoff basic 1.5 worked. 1.6 failed and 2.x worked with SonOTA.

              The biggest issue I had when first using SonOTA was my firewall. I disabled the Bitdefender firewall and it turns out the Windows firewall then became enabled. I had to then disable it also after I figured out what was causing the failure in the final stage.

              I do find it easier to just use USB serial, but that is only because I have done it so many times and no longer need to overcome that learning experience and common gotchas.
