click upload on IDE
wait for sketch size
tap std reset quickly
OK, so this is how you guys are doing it!
But by jumping the 2 resets together I just let the IDE reset when it needs to reset.
You just gave me an idea! What if I cut the RESET-EN trace and replace it with a 2 pin male header.
When I want the board to act normally I just put a jumper connecting the 2 pins of the RESET-EN.
When I want to load stuff to and external chip. I remove that jumper, connect a jumper to the live side of the RESET-EN and to the reset pin of the external chip. And also put a jumper between the board reset and GND to desable the on board chip.
This should work! No?
