-The chip model: CP2102; There is the way to guide you to use the new version: The command you needed to use is: esptool.py --baud 115200 --port /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART write_flash -fs 32m -ff 80m --flash_mode dio 0x00000 boot_v1.7.bin 0x1000 user1.bin 0x37c000 esp_init_data_default.bin 0x37e000 blank.bin The important part is “—flash mode dio” https://github.com/espressif/esptool/wiki/SPI-Flash-Modes;
-Firmware link: https://github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware; Data download access to the website: http://www.nodemcu.com; Test Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gh_pgqjfeQc; Makerfocus nRF24L01+ and ESP8266 ESP-01 Breadboard Breakout Adapter Board is come for free, it can compatible with "nRF24L01+ " and ESP8266 ESP-01.
-ESP8266 is a highly integrated chip designed for the needs of a new connected world. It offers a complete and self-contained Wi-Fi networking solution, allowing it to either host the application or to offload all Wi-Fi networking functions from another application processor;
-ESP8266 has powerful on-board processing and storage capabilities that allow it to be integrated with the sensors and other application specific devices through its GPIOs with minimal development up-front and minimal loading during runtime. Its high degree of on-chip integration allows for minimal external circuitry, and the entire solution, including front-end module, is designed to occupy minimal PCB area;
Instruction and Steps of How to use:
1. Download the Arduino IDE, the latest version.
2. Install the IDE
3. Set up your Arduino IDE as: Go to File-andgt;Preferences and copy the URL below to get the ESP board manager extensions: http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json Placing the http:// before the URL lets the Arduino IDE use it...otherwise it gives you a protocol error.
4. Go to Tools andgt; Board andgt; Board Managerandgt; Type "esp8266" and download the Community esp8266 and install.
5. Set up your chip as:
Tools -andgt; Board -andgt; NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12F Module)
Tools -andgt; Flash Size -andgt; 4M (3M SPIFFS)
Tools -andgt; CPU Frequency -andgt; 80 Mhz
Tools -andgt; Upload Speed -andgt; 921600
Tools--andgt;Port--andgt; (whatever it is)
6. Download and run the 32 bit flasher exe at Github(Search for nodemcu/nodemcu-flasher/tree/master/ at Github) github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-flasher/tree/master/Win32/Release Or download and run the 64 bit flasher exe at: github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-flasher/tree/master/Win64/Release
7. In Arduino IDE, look for the old fashioned Blink program. Load, compile and upload.
8. Go to FILEandgt; EXAMPLESandgt; ESP8266andgt; BLINK, it will start blinking.
