I purchased the Conexant Dev Kit and followed the very nice tutorial Amazon posted on Github to integrate it with a Raspberry Pi 3 to create an AVS system that works really well.

But I haven't been able to find the documentation or guidance I need to add some important functionality. In particular, I need to automate the login to Amazon on startup so that the required services start in the correct order, and no user keyboard/mouse input is required to use the device after a power cycle.

I also want to connect LEDs to the RasPi GPIO header to indicate when the device recognizes the wake word and plays a response. But it's not obvious where in the codebase the GPIO pins should be activated.

Can anyone point me toward the documentation for the code installed by the dev kit that I need to modify to add these features?
