 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I did this a while back but now that there is a specific forum area for this sort of thing I figure I would post it.

This is an iCruze made by Monster for the purpose of interfacing with an early iPod, it was a Monster flop. The board has an atmel Attiny26L cpu on and I was able to reverse engineer the thing and make it useful.
I have full source code and step by step how I figured it out at this link

I got two of these as a result of your work, since they're almost as cheap as straight LCDs anyway. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble determining the actual pinout for the ICSP pins.

Indeed it does, and I gingerly dangled stiff jumper wires in to program it rather than solder in headers, which seems to have worked. Here I've got it "booted up" with the Bus Pirate.
