  • Before flashing you have to connect gpio0 (GPIO zero) to low and do a hardware reset.
    On the board you can see the blue LED flashing shorter if in Flash mode.
    After flashing remove this connection before doing hardware reset.
    If there is a problem during flashing, the circle on left bottom becomes red.
    In this case retry and sometimes its better to flash both files seperately.

  • Thanks for all the work on getting Espruino to run on the 8266! My question concerns the differences between models of 8266. Is the process the same (rather the values for locations to flash) for all variations of 8266? I have a couple of Adafruit boards I am using with nodemcu, and would be very happy to get them running espruino.

    Thanks again, Duane
