After spending hours trying to get bandtanks bootloader to work I decided to also give xboot a try. I read the instructions and it all seemed easy until I tried the make instruction. (this was after I copied the file into the same directory as the makefile)
Then type "make [file].conf.mk". This will copy [file].conf.mk to config.mk,
generate config.h, compile the whole package, and generate xboot.hex, which
can be downloaded with any programming cable capable of programming AVR chips
And winxp spat out
The system cannot find the path specified.
cp x64a3u.conf.mk config.mk
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, cp x64a3u.conf.mk config.mk, ...) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
make: *** [x64a3u.conf.mk] Error 2
After trying all sorts of changes I could only wonder why is it that so far the bootloaders I have used that work are all the ones without source code. All of those with source seem to have been written by people using Linux and are posted with instructions that dont work in windows. I then search On freaks to find people with similar problems who eventualy get it right but then dont show the rest of the world what they did to get it right... end of rant :cry:
