AVRISP on the Mega1280 / Mega2560 Arduino’s

ATMega1280 arduino as avrisp
I dont see this mentioned much, but you can use arduino megas perfectly fine as programmers also. Same program, just different ICSP pins.

pin layout mega's

But same result as with the Nano 3.0 as programmer.. AVRISP image build on windows works, build on Ubuntu no go..

  1. Hi,

    to solve the Ubuntu Problem

    avrdude: stk500_paged_write(): (a) protocol error, expect=0×14, resp=0×11
    avrdude: stk500_cmd(): programmer is out of sync

    avrdude tell you there is an problem by the “Programmer”, so the Problem is the Arduinoboard. Not realy the hardware, but the used Programmercode from Ubuntu.
    You have to use another ArduinoISP script! The one from Ubuntu Packages seems not to work, try to programm the arduino from Windows and only upload sketch from ubuntu system. On my system (Ubuntu 12.10) i’ve solved by using ArduinoISP version 04m3 Version from Windows Arduino version. To upload from a Arduino UNO to a AT-Tiny.
