New Caterina bootloader

by 0miker0 on Sun Nov 25, 2012 8:57 pm

I've made a few custom Arduino boards using the Atmega32u4 and the Leonardo bootloader. i just read about the new Caterina bootloader and it has a few features that would come in handy. Is there an easy way to get this bootloader into the micro using the USBtinyISP?

Normally you select a board and then burn boot loader. How can I select the Caterina hex file specifically to burn? Would it just be the Leonardo?

Look up the boards.txt file for Leonardo - it has Caterina-Leonardo bootloader by default.

So you get Caterina-Leonardo as the bootloader
