Re: Lolin board erase everything from flash

The board is so tiny, it wouldn't surprise me if it had no such function. A good idea might be to hook it up to a cell phone charger battery. I bought one for my Rpi and it keeps the thing powered for 3 days on one charge. It would be best if the cell phone charger battery has both an in port and a...

Re: Unable to operate with flash on Lolin board

Here is something that might help... with the Ampy software I always include the -d1 option. The -d1 option adds a one-second delay before ampy tries to use the raw REPL mode of operation. Using the option fixed the Ampy program hangs that I was seeing. Thanks, I will try your solution and update y...

Re: Is it possible to use Flash button on esp board as input?

You have to show the module, since not all boards have that button. But if it is the button to enable boot mode: that one is connected to GPIO0 and it can be used with the machine.Pin() class.
