I have burned bootloader from the IDE, and then successfully uploaded sketches
I think I recommend against using the Arduino IDE to burn the bootloader for anything that is remotely "experimental" in nature. It hides too much of the feedback from the programming operation. If you've built your own 1284 clone, you should be able to use avrdude from a command line directly, and that will probably work better.
Quick question.. I have read this entire thread and had a quick read of the Atmel data sheet on the ATmega1284 and I am embarrassed to reveal that I haven't a clue as to the difference between the 1284 and the 1284P. The 1284P seems to cost a bit more...Which one to use and why? David GarrisonGaithersburg, MD
you typically have to give the -F option to avrdude to force it to burn anyway, since otherwise it'll error with a signature mismatch
I haven't a clue as to the difference between the 1284 and the 1284P.
I have burned bootloader from the IDE, and then successfully uploaded sketches, using one of crossroad's Bobuino boards, Arduino Uno as ISP (for burn), and genuine FTDI cable for upload.
