I have been so stupid to order an avr programmer deviant from all the guides found on the internet
I carefully soldered the correct cables to the soldering pads (its a v2 board btw) and installed the programmer nicely in the 9x case like so:
When connecting to my computer and installing the pololu drivers everything of course went fine.
But trying to follow this guide on the site of Pololu nothing seemed to work.
After lots of trying with EEPE, AVR studio and other software and settings i started to doubt my soldering skills
But then i found this quote on the product page of Pololu:
Although remembering reading somewhere that it's not adviced to leave the battery power on while programming AVR, i decided to be brave and put the lipo in the 9x and tried again with EEPEThe programmer is powered by the 5V USB power bus, and it is intended for programming AVRs that are running at close to 5 V (note that the programmer does not deliver power to the target device).
I read on the Pololu site:
So now with the lipo in the 9x and the 9x turned on, i tried flashing again with AVRISPV2 and 3 different mcu settings, this time the 9x would beep once, but flashing would fail, also with AVR studio.communicates with your programming software, such as AVR Studio or AVRDUDE, through a virtual COM port using the AVRISPV2/STK500 protocol.
Below are some screenshots wich might help clarify, since i am new to AVR programming, as soon as i found out that the Pololu programmer was not compatible with EEPE i knew i was in for a pain in the ass so i really hope that somebody here can help me find the correct settings/setup to flash my 9x with this AVR programmer.
