Installing Tasmota on the Xiaomi Desk Lamp

MJGJD02YL vs MUGJD01YL There are at least two versions of this lamp. Thanks to @htvekov for confirming that the MUGJD01YL variant does not contain an ESP32. It contains a TLSR8368. Some photos of the MUGJD01YL internals are provided below. If you’re here just for “how do I flash tasmota” bit, skip to the Tasmota section below.

Background This is one of those posts that sat in the Drafts folder for way too long. Just before release, I’d discover something new that would warrant substantial rewrites.

Like with the past few teardown posts, this one also started off as a ‘cart-stuffer’ item so I could unlock a more generous discount on the total purchase.
