External UART connect to RX and TX during flashing

Postby AgentSmithers » Thu Jun 14, 2018 11:20 pm

Everyone,
I have a FTDI connected to my RX and TX on my ESP Wemos D1 Mini Pro. I have to physically disconnect the RX Pin on my Wemos D1 to flash new firmware. My Guess is that pin is shared with the USB interface built onto the Wemos board so my two options are to keep physically disconnecting the RX pin or do a UART swap so different pins are used for the UART during runtime correct?
Are there any other options?
Thanks!
