Topic: Flashing a sketch via Arduino vs Flashing Firmware via FTDI & Flash Upload Tool? (Read 90 times) previous topic - next topic

I'm still trying to get a good grasp on the ESP8266-01 and uploading programs and firmware to it.

What's the difference (if any) between using an Arduino UNO and uploading a sketch into the ESP8266 and using the Expressif Firmware Upload Tool and flashing the firmware via an FTDI interface?

Is it doing the same thing to the same memory locations basically?

Or is there a dedicated section of memory in the ESP8266-01 for firmware vs Shetches that are uploaded via Arduino?

no dedicated memory. everything the same. you can upload AT firmware using Uno as USB-to-TTL and you can upload your sketch over the USB-to-TTL adapter using esp standalone.
