There does not seem to be a menu selection to enable ESPtool to generate the old style bin files which load at 0x0000 and 0x20000.
Is it possible to create the old bin images using the new IDF process?
I need to old method since the app is embedded and the ESP8266 is programmed by another embedded processor -- not the esptool.
Asked question well before I had a good understanding of the IDF process.
I implemented a Partition (Single Factory) and all is well.
This should be closed.
