You might recall some time ago I wrote about using Python on the Orange Pi Zero etc to run the little SSD1306-based displays.
Despite that being successful I did have a nagging doubt about the LUMA library because later on – when doing some apt-get upgrades I got a segmentation error which I’d originally attributed to using a hard disk with the device. I now think it might be something to do with that library. Well, when my NEO PLUS2 arrived I thought I’d try again..
WELL!!! This version works and also works with the NanoPi AIR AND the NEO2 using the standard Ubuntu image (and has solved my problem with the hard drive on the NEO2)...

A quick note – I have made all of my sites secure (https://) and so the original OTA site for my ESP8266 ROMS is no longer appropriate. roms.webutu.com is now the place to go – sorry for any inconvenience. The files are not seen if you visit the site, just a home page - you simply enter the name of the site followed by slash and the rom name - for example... roms.webutu.com/rom.bin
Files available are:
blank.bin and esp_init_data_default.bin are needed for utterly blank ESP12 units.
rboot.bin and rom.bin are for my new ESP8266 code (which no longer supports ESP-01)
I have to say, it felt a little like Christmas today when the Correos post-lady turned up with a plastic container full of packages from China for me.
Among the many items in today’s post were the two you see above – a WEMOS board (i.e. ESP-12 + power supply) which includes an OLED display. As you’ll know I’ve recently added the SD1306 display to the commands on my ESP8266 code – looks like they’ve done the same but gone a stage further and added the actual display to the board.
