I can't find instructions that reliably work to even flash them.
I can't find a complete set of AT instructions that work with them.
Feel free to send them to me if you've given up on them.
I've managed to find help from here at the time when I started to use ESP8266 units.. ..or perhaps you'd like to use nodemcu ? It's good option if you'd like to write your own code in the esp's flash.Have you tried for example these or these ?TommiP
Look I am out of patience with them. I just want the damn support to be there for the product and not have to go a year long treasure hunt on the net to figure out how to make them work. My project is the irrigation controller I am working on, not spending months and months trying to figure out how to make a third party's product work when they haven't bothered providing adequate support for it.
I do agree that the manufacturer of that shield should have taken some time to provide documentation though.
You don't get product support from ebay shopkeeper, believe it. They are just selling those, as many as then can.. Read the answers for your other topics about this same issue, for example here and also try to learn that reality of life is what INTP just wrote above this.. I unpacked three of those shields 20 minutes before I answered you in other topic about AT-commands and it took about four minutes to find those AT-commands with google and intructions how to use them with this chip..As a conclusion: No one doesn't bring it to you on the plate, you have to do at least some by yourself like rest of us. It's not chinese fault or ours, it's just the way it is.TommiP
It's obviously an ESP-12E module and there are a bunch of ESP8266 module comparison sites that spell out the differences with pictures. If you couldn't even find those sites, then your complaints are losing even more credulity.You are straight up confounding your inability to find information or inability to understand it with the non-existence of that information.
Again, you are confounding your own inability with reality. Other amateurs, such as myself, have had no problem finding the documentation and support.You are not doing anyone any favors by slandering a product when it's completely user ignorance. Your theories about what retailers carry are nothing more than delusion.Might do you some good to take a step back, and not set yourself as the golden standard for what level of support, documentation, hand-holding is acceptable for every product in the world.
