New software is transferred to the phone, installed, and put into use. It is often necessary to turn the phone off and back on for the new programming to take effect, though many phones will automatically perform this action. Methods Depending on implementation, OTA software delivery can be initiated upon action, such as a call to the provider’s customer support system or other dialable service, or can be performed automatically. Similarities OTA is similar to firmware distribution methods used by other mass-produced consumer electronics, such as cable modems, which use TFTP as a way to remotely receive new programming, thus reducing the amount of time spent by both the owner and the user of the device on maintenance. Once you insert the micro SD card, the tablet will prompt you to select the option you wish to use. How do you transfer files from my tablet to my computer?
Give it about 10-20 seconds and turn it back on and try using the tablet. You can use other boards assuming that they meet requirements described above. Analyse and test how it affects functionality of your existing and new sketch. If ESP is placed in remote location and controlling some equipment, you should put additional attention what happens if operation of this equipment is suddenly interrupted by update process. Why am I not getting all the memory than what the tablet states it has? It states the total memory of the tablet.
Usually, freezing occurs from overloading the processor, running too many App’s at the same time, or using the tablet while updates take place in the background. If you notice the tablet acting sluggish, check the notification bar for any updates and downloads or other unused apps that are open. What should I do if my tablet won’t connect to the Internet? Serial Monitor from IDE will not be useful in that case. Then diagnose the issue with sketch using Serial Monitor. When attempting to open it, you will likely see the following: This window is for Arduino Yún and not yet implemented for esp8266/Arduino. It shows up because IDE is attempting to open Serial Monitor using network port you have selected for OTA upload.
