I'm trying to switch my HUZZAH ESP8266 breakout board to use the Arduino IDE. I have been following the guide at https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-huz ... rduino-ide and have the new board loaded into the IDE and when I try and upload the sketch I get the following.

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
Executable segment sizes:
ICACHE : 32768           - flash instruction cache
IROM   : 231724          - code in flash         (default or ICACHE_FLASH_ATTR)
IRAM   : 26793   / 32768 - code in IRAM          (IRAM_ATTR, ISRs...)
DATA   : 1496  )         - initialized variables (global, static) in RAM/HEAP
RODATA : 876   ) / 81920 - constants             (global, static) in RAM/HEAP
BSS    : 25608 )         - zeroed variables      (global, static) in RAM/HEAP

I can connect to my WiFi using lua without any issues. I have reviewed many other posts regarding this same issue but none of the suggestions in those posts have helped.
I appreciate any assistance.

Tonight I tried to upgrade the NodeMCU firmware and it hangs at uploading stub... I then tried to install the MicroPython firmware from Mu and get the same timeout error. I can connect and upload Lua files and execute them without any issues. I'm at a total loss with this.

I was abel to get this working by removing the third-party FTDI driver and use the native Mac supported driver.
