Good day!

Is it safe to turn verify of programmed flash in avrdude off (-V option). I use a bootloader (from Arduino project) to upload WinAVR program.

What can be wrong during writing flash? Is it safe to turn it off during development?

Thanks!

Yes it is safe to turn verify of, but it does remove a small degree of certainty. I must admit I usually turn verify off once I am confident of the burning process. I occasionally get caught out and I usually have finish tearing some of my remaining grey hair out before I get back on track.

It's also possible to drive a car without seat belts on and the airbag disabled - but why would you do it? Is life really so short that the few tens of seconds taken for a verify matter? This is why God invented brewing of tea.

The main thing I was curious about: what can be wrong with flashing? Are flashing errors happen often?

It's more likely the comms link over which the binary was passed that may have errors.

Ok, thank, I reverted it in my makefile, just in case :)
