make flash; A fatal error occurred: Timed out waiting for packet header



  • I'm trying to flash a custom firmware. This is actually a successful flash, but it ends with an error of gloom and doom.

    Any ideas what could be causing this false alarm? I'm able to flash the firmware using "Pycom Firmware Update".app on Mac OS without error.

    I'm running this from a Ubuntu VM on Mac OS. I haven't had issues with flashing ESP8266s from this VM.

    $ make flash
    Use make V=1 or set BUILD_VERBOSE in your environment to increase build verbosity.

    Again, this indeed succeeds as far as I can tell... the expected code runs on the device.
