First time poster here! I love everything that Adafruit lists on their shop, so I figured I'd give the Huzzah ESP8266 a shot.
I followed the tutorial here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-huz ... rduino-ide
I got up to the point of uploading the test sketch to the board, but was faced with the infamous errors:warning: espcomm_sync failed
error: espcomm_open failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed
I know I am not the only one who has experienced this, so I did some digging. Here is my setup and what I tried to do to get this working:Setup:
OS: OS 10.10.5 and tried also on Windows 8
Arduino IDE: 1.6.8 on both OSs
Cables Tried: TTY and FTDI (both from Adafruit's shop)
Board specifics: CPU at 80 MHz, 115200 baud, Port (the appropriate one for the cable; confirmed in Device Manager on Win and System Profiler on Mac)
Huzzah ESP8266 Version: Latest! Received it 1 day ago!Symptoms:
1. Sketch compiles fine.
2. On upload the FTDI cable starts blinking red, but nothing gets pushed to the board.Things I verified:
1. Board is in bootload mode. Saw the blue WiFi LED flash briefly, and GPIO0 is dim red.
2. Solder joints appear to be OK. No cross solder and no cold solders.
3. Tested with TTY cable by swapping TX and RX (hoping the pinout was wrong), but still no go.
This is not my first time tinkering: been playing with Arduino UNO and various Pi's, so I am trying to figure out what else am I missing here. Any help/leads would be appreciated in troubleshooting this :)!
