Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

Found a post about bits vs bytes when determining flash size. It appears that --flash_size=32m finally worked (which is 4MBytes). I still cannot figure out why, because my 16MBytes of flash are equal to 128Mbits, which is not an available option in esptool. I don't know what will happen to the 12MBy...

Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

Thanks, now I see some output, looks like it's looping in boot?

Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

I reverted to python 2.7 - just in case. I tried a nodeMCU image, also tried NodeMCU pyflasher. Tried qio instead of dio as flash_mode. All with the same outcome. There was one point, when, during a NodeMCU pyflasher session I got impatient and connected to the serial port with putty. I got a messag...

Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

Thank you for getting back to me so fast. I erased the flash every time before attempting to flash something. Based on my last try, flashing was successful, at least verification says so. COM6 is still the port of the device, checked in device manager, and also this is the port that esptool connects...

Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

Read up on some troubleshooting on esptool wiki, and found that I have to add flash_mode dio option for verification: python esptool.py -p COM6 verify_flash --flash_size=16m --flash_mode dio 0 esp8266-20170108-v1.8.7.bin Now it's verifying correctly: esptool.py v1.3 Connecting.... Running Cesanta fl...

Re: ESP01 MicroPython install

I got into some trouble installing micro python to a board that is allegedly a Wemos D1 Pro. When I connected to it through USB, a factory default application was outputting the available WiFi networks in a loop, so something was working. I'm using 32 bit python 3.6 on a 64 bit Windows 10 laptop. I ...
