#83498 I have an ESP-07 that is (new) and acts strange. I program it fine but when it boots into normal mode, it's like it doesn't start anything. I've programmed it with different firmwares (tried AT and micropython) and both program fine but when I boot it to normal mode, the boot log looks fine but then nothing happens (I don't get my commands echoed back through minicom when using AT firmware, and I don't see it in Access Point mode when I try with micropython).

Code: Select allxx@xx:~ $ --chip auto --port /dev/ttyAMA0 --baud 57600 write_flash --flash_size=detect -fm qio 0 esp8266-micropython-v1.11.bin v2.6
Serial port /dev/ttyAMA0

I then pull GPIO0 high, Booting to normal mode.....

I do see that in normal boot mode, GPIO 0 is at 1.8v and I would expect that to be 3.3v like Vcc, Rst, CH_PD, etc. Maybe that is normal though. Any suggestions as to why it's not running anything after doing a boot log ?

#83546 What are you doing to power the ESP-07?

Programming doesn't use much current. When the chip goes though the radio initialization it draws a high peak current. This may, or may not, be an issue for you.

Flashing failed (I can't tell you the reason): there's a checksum error in the image. :idea:
