Programming Arduino Mega 2560 with USBtinyISP

by seo08 on Tue Aug 28, 2012 6:16 am

Goodmorning!

I have to upload my new bootloader into Arduino Mega 2560 board. Is this possible with the USBtinyISP device? This is an older question, I know, but there is a bit confusion: seems that it's possibible and seems not! If not how can i upload my bootloader?

Thanks in advance :)

The USBtinyISP will not handle processors with more than 64KB of flash. So that rules out the 2560. This blog discusses some other options for the 2560: http://arduinomega.blogspot.com/2011/06/reviving-dead-arduino-board-good-as-new.html
