ESP8266 Download Tool V3.6.2.2

Postby Josemb » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:13 pm


I am using ESP8266 Download Tool V3.6.22 to download "ESP_FCC_V2.0_26M_20160401.bin on ESP-12F (EMC/RF performance).
It connects and show the detected informations until this point is ok, then I fill download path config and set 0x000 address.
Then I press the Start and immediately the panel 1 shows "STOP".
The error is reported in prompt log:

"UnicodeEncodeError: 'gbk' codec can't encode character u' \xe7' in position 26: ilegal multibyte sequence"

Please, could anybody help me?

Which OS are you running on the PC? And you should try a different Download Tool version. It seems like an issue on the PC side rather than hardware side.
