Linkind ESP32 Smart Switch & Dimmer - How To Flash Tasmota
Can we flash Tasmota on it? YES!
But can we flash ESPHome on it instead? YES! (Thanks to zeroping!)
The Linkind Smart Switch is rather unique. It uses an ESP32 chipset with Bluetooth support, two independent buttons, two independent LEDs (behind the small hole) of green/red and one relay. It ships with a non branded white screwless decora faceplate. The switch can also be used in multi-gang boxes as they have the additional mounting holes.
Bought the dimmer? The instructions for flashing/disassembly will be the same except when you get to the software to push over to the dimmer itself. Software will be linked down below for the dimmer in the steps.

To open the switch, there 4 small torx screws in the face. I used the one out of the iFixIt kit but a small flat head screwdriver could also be used. Remove the four screws on the face and pull it straight up. There will be some tension as 8 header pins intersect the faceplate board.
Take note, the switch will not power up unless the air gap switch (reddish switch on the right) is depressed by the faceplate air gap insert (safety feature)
Pop the board out with a spudger or flat head screwdriver and flip it over.
