    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to insult you. I ordered on Aliexpress the memory chips Winbond 25Q32BVSIG to upgrade the Sonoff Basic up to 4GB. But seller sent the chips marked SST25VF64C (8GB) and I was looking for a way to check the operation and the real memory size. ESP.getFlashChipRealSize() returns 2048 bytes and 'ESP8266 Sketch Data Upload' gives an 'out of memory' error.Therefore, I believe your method allows you to check the operation of the original chip with real characteristics. It's not good for my case. But I had already found a way to check the real size and it turned out that my chips were a relabeled fake with a real size of 4GB. I wrote a program using FS.h which creates a files of 100 kB in SPIFFS until it give an error "cannot create file". This shows the approxim…

    Thanks for the advice. I already soldered and checked the chip at a frequency of 80MHz.It turned out to write 60 files of 100 kilobytes each and it seems I was wrong about a fake. This is normal 8 GB SST25VF064C with Chip ID 4B25BF as described in the Datasheet. I tested several other boards - on D1 mini 4GB recorded 26 files, on the D1 mini Pro 16GB recorded 129 files.

    Useless for me. I expected to be able to check the actual size of the flash chip on my board. But Chip ID displays 2048 Bytes and ESP8266 Sketch data upload gives an error.
