 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi guys,
I try to make a bootloader for a Due Taijino clone but it is hard to accomplish. First I tried the simple way, flashing a ATMega8U2 but the attempt to solder hair-thin wires to the QFN package of the 8U2 failed. Now I fiddle with LUFA to use different Ports on a Arduino Uno for eraseing and resetting the SAM3X8E which is even worse (the original ports of the Arduino Uno have no soldering pad on the pcb). Does anyone knows a "Howto build a due bootloader for dummies" or something ? I really don't want to go into the LUFA makefile-business thing the hard way.

Are you saying that your board does not have the ICSP header? If not why not? That's the obvious way to program the 8U2/16U2.

If the U2 is not on the board where is it? Have you made a programming dongle like the Taij people have? If so see my previous paragraph smiley

The SAM also has a USB bootloaders loaded into the silicon, you can program it using the native USB port if you manually press the erase button first.
