Upgrading the firmware on the ESP8266 to Espduino for Arduino based MQTT



I upload the firmware from github user tuanpmt’s “espduino” project to my ESP8266 ESP-01 wifi breakout board. This involves grounding GPIO0 and using a python script (provided) to upload the firmware image.

When used in combination with an Arduino, it allows the Arduino to function as a wireless MQTT client, unlocking all sorts of IoT potential. I’ll cover this in a future video.

Espduino can be found on github here:

  1. This firmware loaded module can be interfaced with stm32f103c8t6. Because I few communication issue. When I push commands from mqtt broker sometimes it arrives late to client

  2. Thanks for putting this up Luc.  Do you ever get an issue with the esptool.py telling you it can't connect to the ESP8266?  I'm able to see the ESP8266 over miniterm.py.
