After un-commenting the SPIFFS.format() line, now I am getting this for serial output (its the gibberish that outputs after reset,at a baud rate of 76800 in a serial monitor):
ets Jan 8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(3,7)
It just hangs after that, no serial output or AP startup.
I did realize that i made a modification to the example code (I said that I didn't in the earlier post) by commenting out the Static IP config line, but it seems like that should make no difference.
I am using an ESP-07, if that makes any difference. That is all I have until some 12-E's come in that I ordered.
This is a great library, I hope I can get it operational on my hardware. Thanks for all the help!
The serial monitor data from above seems like the typical output from after a reset. But I have a serial.println before the spiffs stuff, and that doesn't even execute.
