Gotcha, I need to read the rest of that help page, thanks!

getting late here, gn8

@RussMathis
So I can manually add the faster baud rate to the file boards.txt
Markus
@Links2004
yes
generic.menu.UploadSpeed.512000=512000
generic.menu.UploadSpeed.512000.upload.speed=512000

cool, late here too have to go home and feed the family:) But I'll stick with it later tonight. Thanks for all the help. Have a greate evening.
Thanks you!

New Olimex module including the 'development board' working! No more stability issues like I had with the ESP-01 modules, no wdg reset nor exception 28. Nevertheless, the communication still has problems: Ping has failures, and even when it receives all the replies, they have a wide spread for the round trip time:
Pinging 192.168.3.246 with 32 bytes of data:

Using the webserver example also has problems as before, at the TCP level like we can see in the below image:
blob
So the node itself seems stable (no reset, no exceptions), but at the IP level it seems that there are still issues, do you have similar problems?

have to try
have not experienced such issues

I was at a friends when he tried to install using the Arduino IDE using " http://arduino.esp8266.com/package_esp8266com_index.json" but it never showed an install in the Board Manager. Restarted IDE, Rebooted, nothing appeared.
Did this change and the Readme wasn't updated?

@Links2004

in the platform.txt from the board manager the runtime.tools.xtensa-lx106-elf-gcc.path= and runtime.tools.esptool.path= is missing ?

those values are supplied by the board manager when it has installed the "xtensa-lx106-elf-gcc" and "esptool" tools. i think this doesn't play well with Visual Micro, but i don't use is so no idea if this can be done portably

@Makuna just opened 1.6.4, opened the board manager — the board is there. not sure what was the issue...
@fmgomes can you try with a different wifi AP? i have seen some APs which do not play nice with EPSs
but that's just a wild guess. i haven't seen such a behaviour yet.
Michael Miller
@Makuna
@igrr did you try a fresh install (remove what you have and try the install again?) It shows in mine also, but then, I have had it installed for a week.
@igrr I investigated esp8266/Arduino#352, I pulled down an implementation of strtok_r and after some testing I will put out a pull (in 8 hours, my morning).
Markus
@Links2004

its eclipse not Visual Micro, but yes may the board manager support is not the best yet.
is it possible to add relative paths like:

runtime.tools.xtensa-lx106-elf-gcc.path={runtime.platform.path}/../../../tools/xtensa-lx106-elf-gcc/1.20.0-26-gb404fb9
runtime.tools.esptool.path={runtime.platform.path}/../../../tools/esptool/0.4.4

automatically in release process?
the arduino IDE is working fine with this change.

Michael Miller
@Makuna
@igrr Ok, I tested on a computer that has never seen a esp8266, but has had an old Arduino IDE on it, upgraded Arduino IDE, and everything works fine. So its his machine.
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
@Links2004 actually those paths are there by default and I remove them when I build the board manager package
because the board manager provides some different paths
if you build the IDE from source, you will see those paths in the boards.text
Markus
@Links2004
yes in the git version is working fine.
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
@Makuna thanks for investigating, I'll try to merge everything today. was preoccupied with the new flash layout and new bootloader...
Markus
@Links2004
bootloader sounds nice, how its going?
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
good. I've simplified it a lot, compared to the one from espressif and rboot. just one segment of code, no .data and .rodata, no extra build step for extracting the code like in rboot. almost ready to merge...
Markus
@Links2004
sounds good
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
right now it just loads the app, nothing more, but then it will be just a few lines of code to add OTA
also now we need to flash just one binary, it is not split into two parts
so this simplifies memory layout and "size used by the sketch" calculation
Markus
@Links2004
but this will also mean all code is forced to flash? and we loos the option to put some functions in ram?
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
no the iram segment is still there. it just follows the irom0 now
because it doesn't matter where it will be located in flash — it will be copied into ram anyway
so the bootloader skips over irom0 and loads three other segments
Markus
@Links2004
ok, will take a look when its done :)

a few days ago, this image was loaded here https://files.gitter.im/esp8266/Arduino/Lqkg/SPIFFS_WebServer.png
what are all the screens (what is the esp editor)??
fmgomes
@fmgomes
@igrr, thanks for your reply, after sending my last message here and going to sleep (this must be the biggest problem, not enough sleeping time :-)), it made sense to change the only things I didn't changed before - the AP and the PC. I just made a quick test this morning and the access from a Linux device (other router running OpenWRT that I have in my network) gave me very good ping results (always below 5ms, no losses), and using my android phone browser gave me consistent access to the web pages on the ESP webserver, without long timeouts as I observed with my PC. I don't have time now to make deeper tests, I will try to make additional tests later today using the same PC with Linux instead of Windows, to check if this is a hardware or software problem with the PC, but it seems that the ESP is OK! :-) So, sorry for all the 'noise' here, the problem seems to not be related with the ESP nor with the Arduino framework for the ESP.
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
great! :)

@ficeto
@alon24 it was an example I had created and loaded while we had spiffs. When we have spiffs again, probably the example will be there also. What you see, runs on the ESP from SPIFFS.
IanWalker
@IanWalker
Including the ESP Editor screen ? What exactly is the function of that?
ficeto
@ficeto
Its a small webpage for managing the files on spiffs. Similar thing should be in the SD server example
Ivan Grokhotkov
@igrr
you can run the same from an SD card right now by the way

Ok, so that bootloader thing, it sounds amazing
