That would be absolutely my dream. Espressif wants us all to first move to RTOS and when there, "seemlessly" move to ESP32. But the ESP32 has way too much features for me, but more important, their SDK shields off all hardware access or possibilities for own OTA implementations. And then the form factor, you either must use a "development" board which is way too large for me to be useful (I am now using ESP12's) or a "production" board which has the contacts very close to each other, very hard to solder right and probably impossible to use with pin arrays like I now do (so you replace it without soldering).
So all I want Espressif to do is to just disclose ALL information, information they have, about the hardware and about the SDK (for example about OTA). I understand they cannot disclose the WLAN part, but that's relatively small. Most of the now non-disclosed code has nothing to do with RF.
And once all information is available, I'd happily make my own RTOS-like environment, but then completely open. I don't understand why they're so unwilling.
