but it would certainly provide useful information
Also, did you really -karma me?
Also, how would the arduinoISP try to program itself?
But the bootloader does not send the device ID, does it?
Does the bootloader mimic the built-in serial interface?
I was not aware that the arduino IDE used AVRDUDE to upload programs
I thought the whole point of the bootloader was that you didn't need to use ICSP
considering that the arduino IDE uses serial to upload stuff...
It just seems astronomically unlikely to me that the two protocols would line up so conveniently
I had the auto reset disabled, but then I get sync errors. So I unplugged the reset wire, and still had issues,
i have to hold the reset button on the uno and then let go when avrdude tried connecting to get anything now...
haven't tried the cap idea
