Emon ESP not broadcasting network

Hi All,

I have recivied an ESP to connect to my EmonTX. I plugged it in and powered the EmonTX via USB (removing the jumper), but i did not see the wifi network being broadcast.

I have tried to reflash the ESP with the latest firmware (after manually downloading and unzipping ESPAsyncTCP and ESPAsyncWebServer to the Libraries folder) and when it boots i am getting

EmonESP 1717510
Firmware: BUILD_TAG

Exception (3):

I had a similar problem. I solved it by using platform io to update firmware (and spiffs, did you upload that to your esp?)

See here towards the bottom of the page:-

I have been struggling with this all day, Here is a list of commands i ran to get it working. in linux i used a raspberry pi

sudo apt-get install python-pip

sudo pip install esptool

git clone GitHub - openenergymonitor/EmonESP: ESP8266 WIFI serial to emoncms link

cd EmonESP

wget https://github.com/openenergymonitor/EmonESP/releases/download/2.2.3/firmware.bin

wget https://github.com/openenergymonitor/EmonESP/releases/download/2.2.3/spiffs.bin

Put ESP8266 in bootloader mode by holding gpio0 button while pluging it in.

esptool.py erase_flash

esptool.py write_flash 0x000000 blank_1MB.bin 0x100000 blank_1MB.bin 0x200000 blank_1MB.bin 0x300000 blank_1MB.bin

reboot the ESP8266 and put back into bootloader mode

esptool.py write_flash 0x000000 firmware.bin 0x300000 spiffs.bin

reboot the ESP8266 and you should see the wireless network
