How to use amigo

I got my amigo the other day.

I have been working through the website and instructions which are somewhat helpful.

I think this unit may have been returned and sent out again. All I get when I power it on is Welcome to MaixPy red screen. I have figured out how to load code and have loaded a few things but I am not getting very far because all the other code complains i need V3/V4. The video I watch on Amazon shows a user interface where you can take pictures and other features. How do I get that to load on my unit?

If i can figure this out I will do some videos in English for others. If not I will have to return it.

Please refer to this wiki.

This is the only screen I get. I guess this is the MaixPy firmware.

that is the message i get whe i try to install most GITHUB code. At the top it says to refer to this page which does not load (404) #refer to

Is there a Github repository with code for this MaixAmigo with code that runs on it?

Please try this.

So before I can use this product I need to update it using these very poorly translated documents in this WIKI!

Where do i find the exact software mentioned that will work on the MAIX Amigo? I think its one of these on this page: 下载站 - Sipeed

Where do I find a detailed process to do that upgrade (in english)?
Are there any videos in English showing how to do any of this?

Sorry about that
