Updating AVR-ISP-MKII Firmware in Linux
« on: February 13, 2013, 01:31:17 PM »
hello

I'm just opening a new thread, in case my follow up in this one went unnoticed

I received my brand new OLIMEX AVR-ISP-MKII programmer two days ago

Since I'm working in linux, I have no Atmel FLIP utility.
Instead, I used 'dfu-programmer' to update the firmware.

After disconnecting the device, the yellow LED blinks for a long second, the RED led blinks for a fraction and then stays turned on. No green LEED anymore

Apparently, the firmware has been updatedm but when I reset the programmer, I don't see any /dev/ttyXXX device. avrdude always expects a /dev/ttyXXX device. So I'm stuck here.

I have set the firmware back to the AVR456-studio-AVRISP-MKII.hex file you provide still shows the same LED results.

How can I proceed ?  Must I use Flip on Windows ? Is the programmer broken now ?

Thank you very much in advance
Rafael


FYI, This is what I typed

root@corvus:/home/desa# dfu-programmer at90usb162 erase --debug 6
     target: at90usb162
    chip_id: 0x2ffa
  vendor_id: 0x03eb
    command: erase
      quiet: false
      debug: 6
device_type: AVR
------ command specific below ------
   validate: true

NOTE THAT I TYPED --suppress-bootloader-mem IN THE COMMAND BELOW AS A SAFETY MEASURE

root@corvus:/home/desa/firmware/olimex# dfu-programmer at90usb162 flash --suppress-bootloader-mem --debug 6 libUSB-AVRISP-MKII.hex
     target: at90usb162
    chip_id: 0x2ffa
  vendor_id: 0x03eb
    command: flash
      quiet: false
      debug: 6
device_type: AVR
------ command specific below ------
   validate: true
   hex file: libUSB-AVRISP-MKII.hex

Validating...
10288 bytes used (83.72%)
root@corvus:/home/desa/firmware/olimex#

Ok, it turns ut that the whole process of seeting up the Arduino (Uno) was far mor complex.

The above command does work perfectly to flash the new firmware

dfu-programmer at90usb162 flash --debug 6 libUSB-AVRISP-MKII.hex

And then follow the recipe on

Last, but not least, do not forget to enable +5V supply from the AVR-ISP-MK2 and plug in the ISP 6-pin header  :)
