you are completely missing the point,
doing it with a bunch of checkboxes like that is going to require a program update


PROGRAM update? Is it NOT possible to to make some (xml?) config files? With "fallback" if part is not defined to bare hex? And with config files automatically loaded from net?

I dont like SinaProg for a few reasons,
1st) its 24megabytes in size, that's insanity.

2nd) you have to manually edit a bunch of config files to add support for a new chip, you cant just edit the avrdude config file.

Again: ONE central site for auto downloading configs for new devices?

yes, sometimes useful.

Suggest you PM to 12ocolocker which may trigger an email to his email address (in case he's not reading 'Freaks right now)

But how many avrdude wrappers do you need anyway? There's is the grandadaddy of them all: avrdude-gui which is an open source project on Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/...

The downside is that there's been no activity for more than 2000 days (5+ years) so it's device support is limited to the older AVRs but if you just want to make a specific solution then it could form the basis of that and any missing device you need could be added.

That's just the .exe I believe (from other threads) that Abraão is looking for the SOURCE of a GUI wrapper around avrdude.

Ah, ok. Here's a link to the source code.
http://www.12oclocker.com/soft/avrdudegui_source.htm
Eventually I'll rewrite in Wx, but this source project is built in visual studio 2002 sp1, using MFC.

Thanks 12oclocker. Two questions/requests:

1. why only COM1..COM3? When using a Virtual Serial Port (USB-Serial conversion), the COM ports are frequently set to something above COM3. In my case, they always are since I use a PCI board with 2 serial ports (+ the built-in COM1)

2. How do I program using the AVR Dragon? The Dragon protocol is supported but no USB option is listed (the only interface on the Dragon). If I try anyway, the program complains that COM1 cannot be opened.

Hello everybody,

Today, I wanted to try the AvrDude GUI of 12oclocker.
I started with reading the fuses of a ATmega8, using a Ponyser programmer. Everything worked OK, although it's a pity the program does not shows the fuse on the screen but write it in a file you have to open with another program to read it.

I wanted to reset the fuses to their default value.So I had to change the Low Fuse from $FF to $E1. I did 'nt realize I had to write the new value in the binary format, so I wrote it in Hexadecimal. Result : Atmega blocked.

It took me quite a while to understand what happened : as the program does'nt speek Hex, it wrote 0b00000000 to the Low Fuse. This value correspond to an external clock. So I had to prepare another Atmega on the breadboard and write a small program to play the clock for the blocked µC. This sort of salvage whould have been impossible if I had tried to modify the High Fuse. I guess you understand why.

Knowing this, I am nevertheless very satisfied with this GUI and also with this guy (12oclocker), even if both can be a little bit improved as height little bits can be improved into a byte. :wink:

Well, 9 years later, error 404 on  http://www.12oclocker.com/soft/avrdudegui.htm.

The files I posted for download in my website are there for more than 19 years.

12oclocker appears to still be with us - very recent post here:

 

https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/avr-objcopy-and-eeprom-removing-0x03-record

 

So a PM will probably get you the new location for any files to download.

 

Failing that there's always the internet archive. For example:  https://web.archive.org/web/20170901000000*/www.12oclocker.com
