Thanks Keith, I eventually got it right. I thought the GPIO 0 pin had to be permanently connected to GND when starting it up in programming mode. After I put in a push button inbetween GPIO 0 and GND and only bring it down to GND when turning it on solved the issue. I follow this sequence Press reset on FTDI, Hold down the programming button, Power the ESP on then release the programming button, press reset on the FTDI again. Then it allows me to upload. I also created a video hopefully someone finds it usefull https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQqxaBEZjcs
Man I'm bumbled with my ESP8266 12, I tried everything now even this guide.If I power the VCC and GND with 3.3V the LED flashes once then turns off, When I connect all the pins as shown in this instructable the light does not flash , This guide shows how to hook it up exactly how other guides on the internet does. are these modules known to be faulty ?, Ive been at this for hours! Not sure if the module is faulty or not.
I forgot to include the 10K resistor across the outer legs of the IRL520, Without it the transistor will erratically turn on and off.
