Can I use OTA along with FreeRTOS tasks on ESP32. I ask this because in the following example OTA seems to be enabled if FreeRTOS is disabled. Can for example upload firmware that runs on both cores over OTA? Example taken from OTA template project by Andrea's Speiss

  • You can't not use FreeRTOS on the ESP32. The whole ESP-IDF is based around it.

You can't not use FreeRTOS. The whole ESP-IDF is based around it. The Arduino setup() and loop() run in their own FreeRTOS thread.

If you "turn off" FreeRTOS then nothing will work.

Whatever that "template" is from it's of no use to you.
