It took a number of tries but I have module back on my wifi. I'm pretty
sure if you try to skip setting the module pw and go directly to joining
the wifi network it never succeeds. I tried at least 3 times, was on my
iphone and was doing copy-paste between 1Password and the fields in the
browser and it never worked until I set the module id and passphrase to
something temporary. I was trying to quickly get off of my iphone and
back to where I could cut-n-paste in my desktop so I was trying to skip
that step. If the plan is to disallow letting the user to quick-setup
not set a password, then we shouldn't allow skipping this step.
Something I did do from my iphone was to switch firmware partitions to
the one that had the ota 3.1.008 so that I wouldn't hose my config
again. I think I got that right but I did something else wrong because
when I got the module in my wifi I ended up losing my config one more
time when I tried to upgrade to a newly built image. I'll do some more
git-foo before trying that again...
It felt like the setup process gave up too easily and reset to the
default ssid/passphrase of OVMS/OVMSinit. There's probably a fine
balance here. I had usb/serial going during the process which was
certainly more interesting than just waiting for things to
timeout/errorout or work. But I was a little surprised that the setup
process didn't let me pick the ssid from a list of locally available.
It's certainly what I expected but maybe this was covered in some of the
esp32 wifi threads I didn't read closely.
Anyway: Overall I'm happy to have tried out the new setup process.

Attached sums up git for me.
