I’m trying to add a new nodemcu esp8266 device that I got from Amazon last year.
I managed to add one of them when I got it via the Esphome add-on and the device is running fine.
However, when I tried to add now a another similar device, the UI is stuck at Initializing.
The device is connected via a USB cable to my RPI 4.
In addition, my working device is shown as OFFLINE, although it is functioning 100%.
I suspect that a restore from backup I did few weeks ago, might have caused issues with some add-ons.
For example, for the SSH & Web Terminal, I had to disable protection mode to make it work again.
But I didn’t see any protection mode for Esphome.
The logs don’t show any information regarding this issue either.
Any idea on what can go wrong and how this can be fixed?
If I reinstall the Esphome addon, will I be able to add the working device back?
