Re: Can't Serial into MicroPython ESP8266

Hi... in my test I found I had to run minicom with sudo to get access to the serial port. There is a ways to enable it for all users so that sudo is not needed but I have not researched it yet. That might be the issue. HTH Joe ahh I found the info here... https://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?...

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

That is correct. You should not have to press anything. Only, if the terminal is unresponsive do I try the RESET button. If that doesn't work I unplug/plug.

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

Sorry I couldn't help.

I really would try Lua or Arduino to see if the hardware is having issues.

Good luck!

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

BTW... I usually unplug and re-plug the device (hard reset) before testing with putty. Here is what I connect with by default...

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

I probably should have said "incompatible" firmware. The images on the MicroPython site are fine. That's what I used when I just tested it. I do not own an Adafruit Huzzah, so unfortunately I cannot help on that front. But I am certain that MicroPython supports it... https://docs.micropython.org/en/...

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

I see you ran it with the -fm dio, do you get the same result without those parameters?

Honestly, it looks like a bad firmware image. What kind of board ESP8266 board do you have?

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

First of all you only need to run ONE of those commands... not both. I suspect the flash mode may be the issue. Just run the first command alone and retry with putty.

Re: New to MicroPython, putty showing garbage chars

Sorry to hear you are having troubles mate... The following advice might not help, since I essentially use the same hardware every time... But just to make sure we didn't miss anything basic... 1. Are you erasing the flash first? I always do. esptool.py -p COM19 -c esp8266 -b 460800 erase_flash 2. A...

Thonny Alternative (Windows)

For anyone who might be interested, I have written an application that could be used as an IDE of sorts... rp2-repl.jpg It only works in Windows currently and really only requires that Python 3 is installed... however if you run into issues running the pyboard.py script (missing dependencies), you c...

Re: Windows Application Based on PYBOARD.PY

Apologies to anyone who tried the application with the Raspberry Pi Pico... my internal REPL did not work properly.

I have fixed this and re-arranged the UI a bit... :D
