Hi! I just updated to the latest arduino IDE version (1.0.4), and I saw in the changelog that the Atmega2560 bootloader was improved. I thought I might give it a go, so I hooked up my USBasp to my mega2560, and hit "burn bootloader". after several minutes the IDE hang, and when I tried to burn the bootloader againg, I'm just getting :
avrdude: error: programm enable: target doesn't answer. 1 avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.
I installed CrossPack for mac, and ran this command in terminal: avrdude -c usbasp -P usb -p Atmega2560 -v -v
still I get the same respond, the device is not responding.
I've totally sure that the wireing are correct, I'm using the ISP port. I've also tried with Arduino uno as isp, but no luck.
Is it possible to save my poor mega? Have I fried it?
