I have watch video on connecting GPIO16 to rst pin but try as I may I keep messing up the tiny connection on the chip on the ESP-01. It would seem to be a simple thing to add a pad to that pin to make it easier to attach a lead (not that I really know ). I was wondering if there is source file somewhere that would allow me to add this to a Gerber file, enabling me to order my own customised board?
I attempted designing one from scratch but that got a bit too tricky.
Failing the above I will just have to work on my soldering technique.
At least it's a pin that is on the corner, i think if you use a lightly tinned bit of solid copper wire, and heat that up with an iron, you should be able to connect it. If the solder on the board doesn't melt, add a tiny bit of solder to the leg, or make sure it has melted once already. You do need a magnifying glass i suppose.
