ESP-WROVER-KIT factory firmware

Postby RobinC » Sun Feb 05, 2017 4:55 pm

I've been playing with the new wrover kit and want to install some of the test projects. Before doing that, I wanted to make sure I could get back to the factory image functionality. I don't see the factory software (display tests and temp screen) in the current code on github.

Is the factory firmware available somewhere?

Hi RobinC,

We haven't shipped the source for that demo program yet, but it (or something very similar) will be available as an example in esp-idf.

If you want to back it up for now, you can run "esptool.py read_flash 0 0x300000 wrover_firmware.bin"

And use "esptool.py write_flash 0 wrover_firmware.bin" to write it back.

Send a PM and I'll send a link. Espressif may not like publishing it publicly... :)

Still no sign of the default code, or similar example?

Hi am very newby with ESP-IDF. I just got my ESP-WROVER, could you help back up the factory firmware?

Where exactly do I need to run "esptool.py read_flash 0 0x300000 wrover_firmware.bin"?
I cannot find any esptool.py

I am using the stable version

Code: Select all

%userprofile%\esp\Factory_Firmware>esptool.py read_flash 0 0x300000 wrover_firmware.bin
'esptool.py' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
I also tried to run python.exe from %userprofile%\.espressif\python_env\idf4.0_py3.6_env\Scripts

Code: Select all

Python 3.6.5 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, Mar 29 2018, 13:32:41) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32

It seems I was simply missing esptool.py. Weird that it was not installed along with ESP-IDF.

Do we know if that demo program is available in examples yet?
I couldn't find it. It would be nice to have the code as well.
