I bought myself this, https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/esp8266-phat.
I started with looking through this blog post, http://richardhayler.blogspot.nl/2016/02/getting-started-with-esp8266-iot-phat.html. At point number 5.
5. We need to stop the Pi using the Serial port for console messages. Edit /boot/cmdline.txt to remove 'console=ttyAMA0' from the line. You should be left with:
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait
console=ttyAMA0 I have this
console=serial0,115200. Then, I tried with AND without
console=serial0,115200 in my
/boot/cmdline.txt. I am pretty sure the serial connection is disabled as well.
As the tutorial says, I tried to run my ESP8266 pHat with
minicom -b 115200 -o -D /dev/ttyAMA0. But it does not working (after I pressed enter there is a delay and then the program closes). Since I do not have
/dev/ttyAMA0 I tried with
/dev/serial0 still does not working.
I tried to run installation from
curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/iotphat | bash as well but same thing happened.
I am using latest Raspbian Jessie and Raspberry PI 3 Model B
