I have downloaded the ESP 32 zip file, but it open as a .bin file, which won't open in Arduino IDE, how do you install this code in the Arduino Ide? Need help badly.

After going down the  "ESP-IDF development framework" rabbit hole and getting nowhere I found the "flash_download_tool_3.9.5" and it worked easily.

The settings needed I got from the Touch DRO site. As follows.

esptool.py \
            -p /dev/ttyACM0 \
            -b 460800 \
            --before default_reset \
            --after hard_reset \
            --chip esp32  write_flash \
            --flash_mode dio \
            --flash_size detect \
            --flash_freq 40m \
            0x1000 bootloader.bin \
            0x8000 partition-table.bin \
            0x10000 touchdro-universal-32-v14.bin


The pic is of the tool as used.
