Hi fellow Freaks!
I want to experiment with bootloaders a little. I don't really feel like implementing my own from ground up, at least not now. Instead I'd like to reuse some opensource bootloader code. It's easy to find a bootloader for AVR on google, but there are too many of them and most of them are either half-developed, or half-proprietary (even if that wasn't the intent, the most popular booboo is windows side being AVRProg or some exe-only). Recently mentioned LUB seems to be very good, but if I understand it correctly it's not what I need (I don't have DataFLASH, I only need a serial bootloader).
So, the question is: could you recommend a very simple bootloader project that can be used on a mega8, has full source code for both PC and AVR sides, doesn't require AVRProg, under GPL or Berkeley style license?
Please advise, even if your bootloader of choice doesn't fully meet one of my requirements. A Freak's recommendation is worth a lot :)
