Firmware Download Tool InstructionsΒΆ

Note: If you are using the Arduino IDE for development, this section is unnecessary. If you just need to update a WiPhone using binary files and don't want to set up Arduino or don't want to compile anything this tool might be more appropriate.

To download binaries to WiPhone you will need the Flash Download Tool by Espressif. https://www.espressif.com/en/support/download/other-tools

After launching the setup file, select ESP32 Download tool.
