I have ordered some ESP8266 modules and discovered you can flash the firmware in order to make it program over WiFi. This allows me to use the ESP8266 as a standalone IOT node. But to get the firmware on the ESP you need to flash it. As far as I can make out, the programming actually happens over RX TX and you need USB to Serial. As I'm not keen to buy stuff in double, I wonder if I can use the launchpad to program the ESP8266.I remember I've read somewhere that the BAUD rate is limited to 9600, but is it the MSP430 chip who's limiting it? f it's possible to do so, do I need to take some precautions (remove the MSP430 from the DIP, ...)?
