I can't help but think that you have some basic problem (no pun intended) that is causing you issues here. I have never had any difficulty flashing espBASIC to any/all of the modules that I have.
When I asked if you had ever seen the blue LED flash rapidly I was referring to when you are trying to flash basic to your module. Your response was with regard to flashing LUA to your module but what about when you try and flash basic to it?? (if I missed something then please forgive me). edit... after reading back through this thread I see where you posted a screen shot showing all the dots and then the final output so I am sure you were seeing the blue LED blinking during that process.
Have you tried to flash from a different PC?
After having attempted a flashing the espBASIC have you opened up a serial terminal connected to the modules comm port and if so what do you see when you reset the module??
That is where you should see something like this:
0▒n?▒4▒!▒▒▒▒OSAJ▒▒HTTP Port: 80
ESP Basic 3.0.Alpha 65
Connected to infected
IP address : 10.0.0.9
Do you get anything like that?? if NOT what do you see?
All the posts here would lead one to believe that getting this espBASIC onto a module is a real tedious and unreliable effort. That is just not the case. I usually only have to try once and boom the module is up and running with a new OS and the webpage/IDE is there when I connect to its IP and ready to start entering a program or go to the settings tab and give it my LAN wifi credentials to have it connect to my lan.
Again the feedback from the comm port is VERY helpful throughout OS flashing and subsequent code development and debugging. Actually you can't use a serial terminal DURING the flashing process as the comm port is occupied by the flashing tool. But immediately after flashing the OS you can either take advantage of the new serial window that is part of the flashing tool or close the tool and open a separate (putty is my preferred) serial terminal and connect it to the comm port at 9600 baud. Then when you hit the reset button you should get something like the above example.
What have you been seeing from the serial comm port?? that will help us get you going.
