I am using a http://ruggedcircuits.com/html/yellowjacket.html
and went to test my program. I dorked out and plugged the 11v batter into the 5v pin and not the RAW input pin. The board never started, I waited a full minute at least for it to fire up its WiFi connection. It didn't happen and by the time I unplugged everything I realized my mistake. The microcontroller was hot when I pulled it out to make sure I have the proper program installed to it. However when I try to upload I get this error:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
When I hit the reset button the RX/TX lights don't blink.
I haven't tried this yet, but if I click the "Burn Bootloader" button in the tools drop down menu would that help or just increase my problems. The real issue is this is for my senior project and I have to present tomorrow evening. I don't think I could get replacement here soon enough if I wanted to. But I will try next day air anyway, but I can't afford to make the order unless I get input from somebody else.
