I just had a quick look in the code and it needs to be changed. I assume the actual boot loading code can be left intact, but there are lots of defines and constants that need to be changed and the fuses also needs to be set correctly to get the bootloader to work as intended.
Since the ATMEGA162-16pu has a 11-17week lead time currently i would really like to pick one of these up so i can start porting the code. It's not for sale on the soma circuits website yet and I have been watching for a month. I'd like to get one unstuffed.
