I tried to use ESP_DOWNLOAD_TOOL_V2.4.exe for update firmware.
I downloaded AT_v0.51_on_ESP8266_NONOS_SDK_V1.5.0.zip and read readme.txt.
readme.txt says

Flash size 32Mbit-C1: 1024KB+1024KB
boot_v1.2+.bin 0x00000
user1.2048.new.5.bin 0x01000
esp_init_data_default.bin 0x3fc000 (optional)
blank.bin 0xfe000 & 0x3fe000

but I could not find 'boot_v1.2+.bin'.
Where can i get 'boot_v1.2+.bin' ?

I think "+" means version 1.2 or higher. As example boot version 1.4+ means (also) boot_v1.4(b1).bin.

You can use boot_v1.2.bin but according the fact that newer version (1.2+) is supported, you should rather use the latest boot version which is boot_v1.4(b1).bin at the moment.

hi,

what is the alternative in case we do not have a windows os?

I tried to use the provided python tool but it requires py-exec that is only provided for windows :(

How to erase the whole external Flash using this Flash download tool?

I think I downloaded to a wrong address, then cause the whole module dead, ESP-12 module always ON red and blue leds. So I need to erase all to do re-flash.

Hello,

I would like to report a problem with the Flash Download Tool version 3.4.4
I have an ESP8266-01, spi auto detect that the chip has a flash size of 8mb(id 4014h:QUAD;8mb;Crystal 26).
If I use flash_size 2 (8mb) on the makefile and then write the program using flash download tool, the ESP8266-01 just resets forever, with the blue like blinking forever until my computer crash into a blue screen of death because of the UART garbage spam.
The correct settings for my module is flash size of 4MB(512kb) and not 8mb as the flash download tool detected info says.

Please let me know what is it detecting the wrong flash size information, maybe the id is incorrect or the id has multiple flash sizes.

Thank you,
Best Regards
