Hi Readers,

Today I would like to show you how you can flash ESP8266 boards.

Most of ESP8266 boards have AT firmware installed when are leaving factory. To use Lue we will need to change AT firmware to nodemcu firmware. You can download it from here:

https://github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware/releases

To change firmware you need flasher tool which you can find here:

https://github.com/nodemcu/nodemcu-flasher

How to do that?

First thing you need to run nodemcu flasher tool (32bit or 64bit depends on your operating system). Then you need to connect nodemcu. After connection you need to select right COM port number.

Then you need to go to config section and select new firmware I have selected ‘nodemcu_integer_0.9.6-dev_20150704.bin’ but you can select latest one as at time you are reading it there could be newest version.

After that you need to go back to Operation section and simply click Flash.

After that flashing process will start but if you will have trouble during flashing and you are flashing for example Nodemcu prototype ESP6288 board then you need to click flash button on the board Nodemcu board.

And that’s all folks! Should work now!
