Hi there,
the ATtiny85 has 8 pins:
VCC, GND, and 6 more, some of them are reset and data pins.
I wanted to ask if I can use all six as input/output pins for my project, for example:
Putting an LED on pin 5, while it's reset pin.
or, on pin 3 which is a data pin.

thanks!

Hi - Yes & No - You can use PIN1 as either RESET or I/O but not both, this is set with the fuses. Once the pin is set as I/O it can only be reset using HVP (High Voltage Programming) Hope this help clear things up.
