So my board arrived and it indeed is a 4-layer PCB. I will post photos and test results shortly.

OK, so here are some first simple tests.

I have flashed the latest master of MicroPython and this module, and it seems to work fine (no surprises there).
As you can guess per https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/2335, it doesn't actually see 16MB of flash memory. It sees it as 1MB.

>>> import port_diag

Dear all,
Thanks for these post.
I am preparing a workshop in Africa (Senegal, Saint Louis). I will use the nice materials provide by deshipu! Thanks
so with the apparition of the pro version, I hesitate between WeMos D1 Mini vs WeMos D1 Mini pro.
pro version --> new serial-USB chip driver seems to be more easy to install and to find, but with 16 MB flash don't know if a good idea to move now!
Any comments are welcome.
Best regards
Arouna

Any more news about the 16MB of flash being visible using MicroPython on WeMos D1 Mini Pro ?

I'm sure the issue I linked above will be updated as soon as this is fixed, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
