I found the method to write in bootloader at by Diecimila oneself without external AVR-writer.

Plese visit this page

Uh, very interesting!

(I was trying to reply your previous post, but it disapeared! But I've found it here again.)

If it works as described, people that asked about X3 connector functionality (in many posts) will achieve an answer.

[edit]I was thinking if it would be possible to use this method to upload a sketch without the bootloader, instead of to burn the bootloader, the same way we do using an external programmer.[/edit]

cool :-)

now that I've just ordered an avr writer, I'll have two.
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

I'll give it a try as soon as possible ! This is really interesting stuff !!

kimio, this sems to work with an Arduino NG. The pinout is exactly the same so no changes needed.
I don't have any blank ATm168 (only a spare one with the bootloader already burned) so I haven't yet tried to upload the bootloader, but the first tests are ok, avrdude-serjtag returns 0x1e9406.
Thanks a lot man, now I can finally write any ATm168 with the Arduino only ^^
