I am having problems programming a tiny167 with the jtagice2 in isp mode using avrdude (version 6.2). The 167 was missing in the avrdude.conf so I had added it from here: https://github.com/TCWORLD/ATTinyCore/issues/15
I get the error message "bad response to set parameter command: RSP_FAILED".
When checking the signals with a scope I can see the reset going low (pin 6) but there is no clock on pin 1. Reset goes high again after about 800ms, so I think avrdude has given up at that stage. I tried two different jtagice2 with the same result. I believe the SCK does not require a pull-up.
I have a few questions now:
1. does the avrdude.conf file has an influence on the signals i.e. can a faulty entry be the cause of the clock missing?
2. if yes, can anybody confirm that he/she succesfully programmed a 167 in isp mode with the config file contents in the link above?
3. does avrdude 6.2 support the Atmel-ICE? I tried that a few weeks ago without sucess although I believe I have all the relevant udev files modified correctly.
