Is my ESP32 bricked again?

Posted on sob 18 lipca 2020 in micropython

I just returned to my IoT project. Pulled esp32 from box, connected with usb cable to raspberry pi, did minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0 and .... nothing. No reaction to my input, help() doesn't work. No output.

Have I bricked another ESP32?

I thought so, then I started to play with options in settings and voila!. Here is reason for such strange reason: hardware control was turned on, and apparently ESP32 doesn't work well with it.

wrong setting

Correct setting:

good setting

How to get to it?. Ctrl-Alt-Z O, then Serial port settings.
