Both are flashed with ESP_Easy_mega_20200608_custom_ESP8266_4M2M.bin, both are Wemos D1 mini. Before activati...

Re: Flashing esp wroom- 32 espeasy

Wrong program for flashing an ESP32.

Use Flash Download Tool

Put the ESP32 in flash mode, start the program, search the .bin, enter flash address 0x00000, hit start and thats it.
