Ultiboot compiled hex file for download?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if someone could point me to a compiled version of daid's Ultiboot whose source is here, or give me instructions on how to compile it.

I got a board which I can't for the life of me get a firmware uploaded to it, have done the ICSP flashing on Atmega16U2 already, which went fine, but I'm stuck on Atmega's 2560 bootloader upload, which always gives me verification errors...

(./avrdude -c arduino -p m2560 -F -P /dev/tty.usbmodem204411 -U flash:w:stk500boot_v2_mega2560.hex

avrdude: AVR device initialized and ready to accept instructions

avrdude done. Thank you.)

That answer, although clarifying, actually details the process of burning the bootloader, not the compilation of Ultiboot or pointing to a compiled version....

As answered there, that didn't solve my particular problem, and I'd still like to hear about Ultiboot as it stands at the moment if someone knows about it...

Please explain why you want ultiboot. I dont' think you need it whatever it is. People have used plain old Arduino's with whatever boot loader they come with on the UMOs. You shouldn't ever have to mess with the bootloader and if you do, the boot loader created by the Arduino community is probably the preferred boot loader.

So if you need a boot loader for a bricked Arduino then the Arduino community is probably your best resource.

What country are you in dmolina? In USA Arduinos are very cheap - $16 includes shipping.

Well, I thought there was some special magic, something only Ultiboot would do, i.e., like an identifier to let Cura upload new firmware, etc.

I´m not using any Arduino board. I got an UM2 board I ordered from China that seems bricked, I´ve tried to upload firmware to it thru ICSP header, no go whatsoever. I have plenty of arduino´s at hand, its just that I keep receiving the verification error described in my first post.

Thanks for your interest btw.
