Hey guys I wanted to flash my ESP8266 but every time I use the flasher it say: Failed to connect. I'm using an ESP-01 module. I connected it with some wires so VCC -> 3.3V, GND -> GND, TX -> RX and RX -> TX. I'm using windows. How can I fix this problem or where can problems exist in this case? I know its a really short question but I honestly don't have much more to say than that. Thank you. I'm happy for any answer as this thing got me frustated.

    upload Blink to Uno and wire RX to RX and TX to TX to connect the esp-01 directly to USB of Uno.

    Alright I uploaded blink. I now connect VCC with CH_PD and GPIO0 with GND right?
