Hi all,
I've accidentally ripped the USB socket off my Arduino micro. I have no chance to solder the connector back to the board as the tracks are damaged.. :(

I am now trying to find an alternative way of programming it.

I've found this other thread that explains how to use another Arduino (in my case I have an Uno R3 I can use): http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,7571.0.html

It works well when I use this method to program an Arduino Pro Mini (the same that is being used in the above link).
However, when I try to reproduce the method on the Arduino Micro, I get an "Uploading.." that takes forever.

I am using the following connections:
5V -> Vin
GND -> GND
RX -> RX
TX -> TX
RESET -> RESET

I've enabled verbose on upload and I get the following output:

Am I doing anything wrong ? Can I even do that actually ?
I'm a bit lost here, a little help would be much appreciated :)

The Micro and Mini have different processors. The Micro has a ATmega32u4 and its bootloader would expect input from USB, not from serial like the Mini does.

You could program it with the ICSP header (those 6 pins sticking straight up) if you had a programmer. Try looking for the Arduino as ISP page (the sketch comes with the IDE).
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!
