I am currently working on a project where I use oldschool esp-01 modules. I'm using a usb adapter for those.
Few weeks ago I already succeeded to flash the firmware using the ui.. it seems that that was luck since I fail in the newer versions.
However, Arduino IDE has no problems flashing the device. So all connections are correct.
My intention is, that the UI kills the initial flash state of the device by constantly trying to reach it before it starts to flash.
The ESP-01 does not have a reset button so it depends on beeing left in the state when powered up.
There seems to be a way to use the mos tool in command line using the flash option... but I can't find any documentation.
what would be an easy way to flash it
