Hi, I just got 2 Atmega128P as samples from Atmel.
I was wondering if ADABOOT can be adapted for the 1284P since it already support the 644P (used by Sanguino project).

I tried to modify latest ADABootLoaderR3_9D15 myself, basically I added
Code: [Select]
|| defined(__AVR_ATmega1284P__) in the same #elif of 644P except for the signature section.
However isn't working (no led flashes) :(

I figured out that maybe the problem was "simply" the different LDSECTION value in the Makefile that needs to be changed for the 1284P.
So, as the datasheet say, for a boot size of 1024 words (2kbytes) the boot reset address is 0xFC00 then the LDSECTION will be LDSECTION  = --section-start=.text=0x1F800 (0xFC00 x 2 = 0x1F800)
The value of 1F800 is even confirmed calculating it starting from the flash size (128k = 131072 bytes - 2048 bytes = 129024 bytes = 0x1F800)
However using 0x1F800 give me this error:
Code: [Select]

Here the files I'm using:
Modified source (diff with the original)

RESOLVED: I modified the optimization from -O2 to -Os and NO ERRORS! and now the bootloader is working (led flashes correctly) :D


Did I understand right? You got the 1284p fully working with IDE?

If so, please repost links.... they don't ork any more....


Thank you!


How did you get the sample from them i have had no luck.
