ESP32 auto-program circuit with FT232R

Hi Folks,

I made a PCB with a FT232R and an ESP32. I also included typical the auto-program transistor circuit so I can flash it comfortably without manually pressing the boot / reset buttons.

Thing is, it doesn't work! I'm almost certain I implemented it correctly, however usually a CH340 is used instead of a FT232R. So I'm wondering, if I made some mistake, or if this simply doesn't work with a FT232R.

Thanks for your answers!
