Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

It finally works! I disabled the AP network, but left STA on. Now it works, even in my flat, and for most of my planned projects, I'll be connected to the local WiFi anyway, so AP is not needed. Thanks very much Roberthh, and everyone else for all your help! Seeing as I now have 7 extra boards lying...

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

Yes I did try it with that battery pack at home as well. Same behaviour, restarts every 9 seconds.

And plugging it into the computer or a battery pack both worked fine at work, so it doesn't seem to be a power issue to me.

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

So... I think I've gotten somewhere... but its extremely strange! I was hiking in the South Downs this weekend, and like any sane tinkerer would, brought the ESP8266 and a battery pack to test it where no WiFi exists. And lo and behold, it works flawlessly! To double check this, I brought my laptop ...

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

I did the exact same thing as you, also on esptool version 2.6. Ran the commands: esptool.py --port COM3 --baud 460800 erase_flash esptool.py --port COM3 --baud 460800 write_flash --flash_size=detect -fm dio 0 esp8266-20190529/v1.11.bin I also tried to directly specify '4MB' intstead of 'detect'. Th...

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

Hi again, I've now tried all of your suggestions, but sadly to no avail. Still the same exact issue no matter what I try. I even ordered new cables from Amazon to try, and got a hold of a third computer to try from, but nothing. The one thing I still want to try is to go somewhere where there is no ...

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

The flash size is 4MB, but I've only tried with the "detect" setting so far. I'll try to specifically call out the flash size as well. Regarding the power supply, I've only done this via USB cable plugged into the board from a computer. But I've tried every USB port on every computer. I could try to...

Re: Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

Hi Roberthh, Thanks so much for you super fast response! I did try a few different cables, including the one that worked initially. But thinking back on it, I'm not sure how good the quality of either of those cables is. I will try to get a better cable to test with again! On the wifi front, no I di...

Micropython crashing and rebooting every 9seconds

Hi All! About six months ago I started my first micropython project on an esp8266. Everything went smoothly. I flashed micropython on the the board using esptool on a Windows machine, and was instantly up and running in the board. It was running without any issues until roughly a month ago when it s...

Re: esp8266 Pushbullet Android Notification

Very handy, thank you for posting this!
I have a few projects going that I'd like to enable notifications for, so this is going to be super useful. Might throw a question or two your way. :D
