OTA firmware loading!

Reference: https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino/blob/master/doc/ota_updates/readme.md#application-example

First, we'll use this example code that rolls in a modified strandtest with the OTA code:

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <ESP8266mDNS.h>
#include <WiFiUdp.h>
#include <ArduinoOTA.h>

#include <Adafruit_NeoPixel.h>
#ifdef __AVR__
  #include <avr/power.h>
#endif

#define PIN 12

// Parameter 1 = number of pixels in strip
// Parameter 2 = Arduino pin number (most are valid)
// Parameter 3 = pixel type flags, add together as needed:
//   NEO_KHZ800  800 KHz bitstream (most NeoPixel products w/WS2812 LEDs)
//   NEO_KHZ400  400 KHz (classic 'v1' (not v2) FLORA pixels, WS2811 drivers)
//   NEO_GRB     Pixels are wired for GRB bitstream (most NeoPixel products)
//   NEO_RGB     Pixels are wired for RGB bitstream (v1 FLORA pixels, not v2)
//   NEO_RGBW    Pixels are wired for RGBW bitstream (NeoPixel RGBW products)
Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(6, PIN, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800);

// IMPORTANT: To reduce NeoPixel burnout risk, add 1000 uF capacitor across
// pixel power leads, add 300 - 500 Ohm resistor on first pixel's data input
// and minimize distance between Arduino and first pixel.  Avoid connecting
// on a live circuit...if you must, connect GND first.


const char* ssid = "TEST";
const char* password = "TEST";

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
  Serial.println("Booting");
  WiFi.mode(WIFI_STA);
  WiFi.begin(ssid, password);
  while (WiFi.waitForConnectResult() != WL_CONNECTED) {
    Serial.println("Connection Failed! Rebooting...");
    delay(5000);
    ESP.restart();
  }

  // Port defaults to 8266
  // ArduinoOTA.setPort(8266);

  // Hostname defaults to esp8266-[ChipID]
  // ArduinoOTA.setHostname("myesp8266");

  // No authentication by default
  // ArduinoOTA.setPassword((const char *)"123");

  ArduinoOTA.onStart([]() {
    Serial.println("Start");
  });
  ArduinoOTA.onEnd([]() {
    Serial.println("\nEnd");
  });
  ArduinoOTA.onProgress([](unsigned int progress, unsigned int total) {
    Serial.printf("Progress: %u%%\r", (progress / (total / 100)));
  });
  ArduinoOTA.onError([](ota_error_t error) {
    Serial.printf("Error[%u]: ", error);
    if (error == OTA_AUTH_ERROR) Serial.println("Auth Failed");
    else if (error == OTA_BEGIN_ERROR) Serial.println("Begin Failed");
    else if (error == OTA_CONNECT_ERROR) Serial.println("Connect Failed");
    else if (error == OTA_RECEIVE_ERROR) Serial.println("Receive Failed");
    else if (error == OTA_END_ERROR) Serial.println("End Failed");
  });
  ArduinoOTA.begin();
  Serial.println("Ready");
  Serial.print("IP address: ");
  Serial.println(WiFi.localIP());

  // This is for Trinket 5V 16MHz, you can remove these three lines if you are not using a Trinket
  #if defined (__AVR_ATtiny85__)

  //colorWipe(strip.Color(0, 0, 127), 50); // Blue
  colorWipe(strip.Color(50, 50, 50), 50); // White RGBW
  // Send a theater pixel chase in...

  //theaterChase(strip.Color(127, 0, 0), 50); // Red
  //theaterChase(strip.Color(0, 0, 127), 50); // Blue

  //rainbow(20);
  //rainbowCycle(20);
  //theaterChaseRainbow(50);
}

// Fill the dots one after the other with a color
void colorWipe(uint32_t c, uint8_t wait) {

  uint16_t i, j;

  for(j=0; j<256*5; j++) { // 5 cycles of all colors on wheel

      }

// Input a value 0 to 255 to get a color value.

uint32_t Wheel(byte WheelPos) {
  WheelPos = 255 - WheelPos;
  if(WheelPos < 85) {
    return strip.Color(255 - WheelPos * 3, 0, WheelPos * 3);
  }

    WheelPos -= 85;
    return strip.Color(0, WheelPos * 3, 255 - WheelPos * 3);

}

We will flash this code as we would normally using the FTDI cable -- no sweat! This will allow us to update OTA going forward (unless something really goes wrong).

OK, let's try an OTA flash. First, ensure you don't have some kind of firewall running that might block traffic. I believe this process uses port 8266 (not sure if UDP or TCP). Under menu item Tools | Upload Using, select "OTA".

Now wait a few moments. Eventually under the menu item Tools | Port, you should see something like "esp8266-<something> at <ip_address> (Generic ESP8266 Module)". If you don't see this after waiting a while, restart the Arduino IDE and look again.

Now you can flash the firmware using the Upload button. It should compile things, and then you should see the ESP's LED eventually start blinking as it receives the binary.

Caveats:

  • If your code blocks for any reason, it will cause the ArduinoOTA.handle() function to never be called in the main loop. Make sure you periodically call this function, or the OTA flash will time out.
  • Serial monitor no longer works.
  • If things go sideways, you can always re-flash with the FTDI cable again. Just change the Upload Using and Port settings back to "Serial", "/dev/ttyUSB0", respectively.
