I have Pinguino otg board. A few months ago I had project with Pinguino Ide/version from 12.2013y. Everything worked fine thru usb programmer. After that I have had some projects with the same board, but with MPLAB X ide thru PICkit3 programmer. Everything was ok again.
These days I am trying to debug some code with Pinguino Ide thru usb programmer, but noting happens. I cant access to bootloader mode, which is strange. I have tried with pushing the two buttons, when the board is powered, as I did a few mounts ago. Actually with Pickit3, everything works.
Do you have some ideas what to do? Drivers or something else? I am still having the old version of Pinguino Ide/12.2013y.
Best regards   



You probably overwrote the bootloader program. Every board that gets programmed via the USB requires a bootloader program. Use the PICKit3 and MPLAB IPE to restore the bootloader.

You can get the binary of the bootloader from Pinguino IDE or here: - you need the file HIDBoot_MX440.hex (click on it and then click the button "RAW" to download it to your computer).

Thank you for your suggestion. Now everything is ok with board :) .
Have a nice day ;)
