Expert tip: Add More Flash Memory to your Sonoff Basic Wifi Smart Switch

Introduction:

The Sonoff Basic Wi-Fi Smart Switch is an inexpensive wireless smart switch for anyone who wants to remote control and/or automate electric devices around the house or workplace. Unfortunately, it suffers from the same privacy issues as many of the inexpensive consumer grade smart devices, like the one in this article. In addition, the Sonoff Basic only comes with 8Mb (1MB) of flash memory, which makes it even more difficult to use it for development, since this means over-the-air updates are not possible.
