atmega644p bootloader
December 04, 2014 09:48AM
i have a strange problem with a board based on the atmega644p .. I am able to burn the sanguino bootloader using the arduino as the ISP. Also i am able to upload sketches directly without the bootloader again using the Arduino ISP . But if it try to upload sketches after uploading the bootloader using a FTDI board it gives me a error...

I tried both the arduino 0.23 and the arduino1.0.1 and both the bootloaders.

Any clue what stupid mistake am i making?

there are a few 644p bootloaders about that dont actuly work. And you need the correct one for the correct frequency your runing the chip at (16 or 20 mhz normaly) And since the IDE also sets the fuses, which selects if your using a resinator or a crystal you may also need to play with the boards.txt file to change the fuses.

These are known to work well. []
Ie download and use [] as the boot loader
These are designed for a crystal.

You havent mentioned what board you actuly have...
