Hi jpizarrom ,
So we cannot release the firmware as it is based on tools that Intel considers proprietary. If this ever changes we will be able to open-source the firmware.
We were able to write the host side and the ESP32 from scratch not using any Intel tools, and that is why that can be open-sourced. And we made a module for the Myriad X so that we could open source the rest of the hardware.

Embedded Use Case

What are you hoping to do with the firmware?
Perhaps we already can make happen what you are looking to accomplish. For example we will be supporting microPython soon (see here)
And we also have a version with an integrated ESP32, which allows you to then have your own custom logic/etc. on the ESP32 and actuator drive, sensor integration, etc.:
And of course all the source code for the ESP32 we can open source (and have done so) because the ESP32 toolchain is fully open source. See here for some details and how to integrate microROS for example here
