I finished building the barebones version from moderndevice.com. I programmed the bootloader ATmegaBOOT.hex into ATMega168-20PU using UISP (linux). After programing, I verified the chip and even downloaded (read and save into a file) the hex file.
I connected an LED on Pin13 and ground (checked polarity ok). Board power is fine as power LED lights up.
After hitting reset, the led should blink (once) but it doesn't. So concluded that the bootloader is not running.
What could I be missing?
