Noob Question

I purchased my first 4ch Pro (R2) on amazon. I'm attempting to flash Tasmota to integrate with Domoticz to control my door strikes. This will replace my old X10 relays. I think that I have everything figured out, except my 4ch Pro (R2) does not match any online pictures, so I'm not sure where GPIO0 is located. Unlike all of the online pictures, where the board reads, "sonoff_4ch_pro V1.1 2017-4-26", my board reads "sonoff_4ch_pro V1.0 2017-11-10." I also have a long bar for my 433mhz antenna, not the black coil of wire. The ESP8285 is also soldered directly to the board, it's not on the little riser board. Is this just because I have the R2 model? Can I just locate GPIO0 on the chip specs and continue?
Thanks

Hi Allen. Yes I saw last week that the new version R2. I looked briefly and it seems to me that the big difference is in the box. Before the terminal block was accessible from the outside. Now it is covered by the box. It must be to comply with the CE or FCC standard, I have not gone further. In my opinion, the tutorial remains valid for the R2 model. Tell me if I'm wrong. Have a good day

Thanks. I will give it a shot then. This is my first one. I will post any helpful comments. The terminal block is still accessible . The flap above it is hinged and can be pulled up for access to the block. Here are some pictures of the new board.

I tested, and this relay appears to be working. 1) There is a little solder pad to the bottom right of the ESP8285, near R50. It gives easy access to GPIO0. 2) S6 has to be set to Interlocking, not Locking/Inching to enter programming mode for the chip. If it's set the wrong way, two red leds come on. 3) The relays can not be controlled from the web interface, but everything else appears to work. 4) The TX and RX are labeled correctly on this version, so reverse them when you connect your cable. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for the great tutorial. I couldn't have done it without.

Hey,

First of all, thank you for the great tutorial.
But I have one problem, Relai 4 is not working correctly. It turns on and shortly after that back off. All the dip Switches on the Sonoff 4ch Pro are correct. Relai 1-3 are working perfectly with Domoticz. Relai 4 will work when I remove the virtual switch from Domoticz. Any ideas how I can fix that?
Thanks in advanced.
