Guide for AVRDragon, atmega328p, and optiboot bootloader.
- wrong atmega328 (need atmega328p-pu, not atmega328-pu) (though this can still be used)
- need fuse bits set separate from programming hex (pickit w/pics on the other hand handle this all in one)
- need lock bits set
- need 16MHz crystal when programming hex and lock bits (can use one from uno board)
- avrdragon needs disconnect / reconnect
set proper wiring on avr dragon (see image on right)
set fuse bits
avrdude -b 19200 -c dragon_isp -p m328p -v -e -U efuse:w:0xFD:m -U hfuse:w:0xDE:m -U lfuse:w:0xFF:m
add crystal (pins 9 and 10 on atmega328p, see datasheet) , load hex, and program lock fuse
avrdude -b 19200 -c dragon_isp -p m328p -v -e -U flash:w:hexfilename.hex -U lock:w:0x0F:m
hexfilename.hex - the optiboot loader is included in e.g. arduino-1.8.5/hardware/arduino/avr/bootloaders/optiboot_atmega328.hex
If everything is done correctly, you should now be able to upload from Arduino IDE.
- use another Uno's crystal if you don't have one on hand. Solder wires and jump to dragon ziff socket.
- efuse verifies as 0xFD, though some guides write 0x05. High bits are unused, so they are set to 1. Ends up as 0xFD if written with either 0xFD or 0x05.
- atmega328 (not atmega328p), use -F with avrdragon.
- board.txt somewhere in arduino folder also has proper fuse settings (search for uno)
- first breakout on dragon is gnd/vcc header. Obviously, multiple of these can be used.
- if it errors out, disconnect / reconnect dragon. e.g.
avrdude: usbdev_open(): Found AVRDRAGON, serno: 00######### avrdude: jtagmkII_getsync(): sign-on command: status -1
