I have a Butterfly and an AVRISP that I have connected with a USB-serial converter on a windows 10 machine. I would like to work through smileymocros tutorial using the bootloader functions of the butterfly. It appears that my butterfly has the BOOTRST bit set incorrectly as the butterfly goes straight to running the built in demo at start up. I see the butterfly user guide has data regarding these bits. When I try to set them in the AVR studio 4 gui, it appears to work but I don't think it actually does and my butterfly continues to boot to the demo program.
Is the AVRISP capable of setting these bits?
PS Why the heck does my cursor return to the top left of the text box every time I hit the enter key when I am using this forum? It only happens to me on this forum and oh my gosh is it annoying.
