**PLEASE READ!** Once you have configured the Wi-Fi settings and your Tasmota device connects to your Wi-Fi network, go to the web UI of the device. Click Console and type "Reset 5" (without quotes).  This will wipe flash memory of any Tuya firmware remnants to help prevent future corruption during Tasmota upgrades.

Steps for SSH/Putty Terminal (Copy and Paste)
sudo raspi-config
sudo apt update
sudo apt install git
git clone
cd tuya-convert

PLEASE NOTE!  The thirdparty.bin file is included in the Tuya Convert github repo now and will be there for you automatically to flash.
