Re: ESP-01 V3 flashing issues

Due to my experiences the reset pin on the ESP-01 is a bit sensitive with all versions.
I used another way that worked much better for me:
- disconnect power (3,3V)
- connect GPIO0 to ground
- start flashing in the programme software
- power up the ESP-01

Maybe put a capacitor around 100µF near the sensor between 3,3V and ground.
The DS takes around 5 µW so it is not likely it overloads the power supply of the sonoff.
Maybe the 3,3V line isn't really "clean".
