    Default ESPixelStick Programming Failed

    Hi everyone.

    I am having trouble getting an ESPixel stick programmed. Here is the error I get:



    I am using a USB-TTL Adapter (CP2102). Connected it up just like the pic here:

    Tried swapping TX and RX. Same error.

    Any ideas?

    Ken

    Looks like you aren't selecting the proper COM port. If the CP2102 isn't showing up, you'll need the drivers from silabs - https://www.silabs.com/products/deve...ge-vcp-drivers

    The adapter is showing up in device manager, but as an “other device” not as a COM port.



    The only choice I get in the flash tool is the COM 3 port:



    Will the driver fix that?

    Thanks!
