I tried to read the flash from the device to backup the program, however the data that came out (no errors reported) was essentially blank. I did notice that there's a lock bit set "PROG_VER_DISABLED", but I have no idea what that means. I can't seem to find a definition of these lock bits anywhere. I'm guessing this is why I cannot backup the chip?
I would also like to figure out how to use debugWire so I would only have to worry about 3 pins (Vcc, GND, debugWire) rather than the regular 6 (Vcc, GND, RESET, SCK, MISO, MOSI). I know I have to set a fuse to use it, but I'm not sure what else may be involved (if it will work with my Atmel mkII).
lol...thanks, though I wouldn't have anything if it weren't for the excellent assistence from Coding Badly. ... I agree, coding badly has been extremely valuable in this project. If I could I'd by him a drink (if he drinks....otherwise a root beer ....I personally would take ge root beer ha)
