If its what I think (CH340/CP2102)
CH340's VID/PID is 1A86/7523 The CP210X have a bunch of PIDs, but all of their VIDs are 10C4. 2a03/0043 is a legitimate VID/PID for the official UNO with the ATmega16U2. It's listed right in the Arduino AVR Boards boards.txt file:https://github.com/arduino/ArduinoCore-avr/blob/1.6.23/boards.txt#L55-L56Code: [Select]uno.vid.2=0x2A03uno.pid.2=0x0043
the link that he gives for the FLIP app is not valid. When I click on http://www.atmel.com/tools/FLIP.aspx it takes me to https://www.microchip.com/.
The procedure from instructables uses point to point wiring and I don't have the female to female wires to make those connections.
