Hi, I am going to implement the cheap parallel programmer. My question is, if I can compile the program in Arduino IDE into a HEX file and get it out, to burn with the programmer into Atmega168 (no bootloader)?
Where in which folder the HEX result sits? As I understand, the compiling and transferring in standard way happens in one step in the IDE right? So if I don't have the bootloader chip and can't use the "burn" button on IDE, I can't get the HEX generated at all right?
Please guide :D
