USB cables from powerbanks often don’t have data wires (they are charge only). So, your computer will never establish a serial communication with your ESP8266. To download the latest version of MicroPython firmware for the ESP8266, go to the MicroPython Downloads page and scroll all the way down to the ESP8266 section. So, your computer will never establish a serial communication with your ESP32. After they are installed, restart the uPyCraft IDE and you should see the COM port in the Tools menu.
Knowing the type of file you have can help you find out how to open it. Most FIRMWARE files are categorized as Uncommon Files, which can be opened by numerous software packages. See if you have a program already installed on your computer that’s designed to open Uncommon Files. Hopefully, this program might also work with your FIRMWARE file.
A BIN file is a generic data file that stores information entirely or partially in binary format. The .bin extension is used by various applications for multiple types of files. Examples include saved data files, disk images, resource libraries, and firmware updates. In this guide, we will show you the steps to extract the Samsung TAR/LZ4/BIN firmware files.

- You’ll find that people in the past have done this for instance for Pentax and Canon gear.
- To be recorded correctly, BIN files must be accompanied by a CUE file.
While flashing firmware if we get any error, disconnect the ESP8266 connected USB, reconnect it and again click on START icon to begin the flashing. In the earlier articles, we have stock firmware written our own program in Arduino IDE to access GPIO pins of ESP8266 or to interface sensors to ESP8266. But if we write our own program to access GPIO Pins, the existing firmware will be completely erased and the new program will be written on the ESP8266.
