I followed a tutorial on how to setup arduino and bluetooth so it can be programmed without usb cables. I didn't use capacitors or resistors asthere doesn't seem to be a need for them. I have the serial output appearing on arduino serial console via bluetooth (no usb cable connected). Since the is a working connection that means it is working to a point. However when trying to upload I get "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x4c" error.
I didn't connect pin 32 of hc-05 to arduino reset pin yet, could that be the issue? I don't actually need arduino to be reset since I can just kill the power to it manually at least for now. I also used 9600 as baud rate instead of 115200 as in the tutorial, because my arduino code used 9600 but maybe I misunderstood this and it actually needs to be 115200 regardless or my baud rate in arduino code?
What else could be the cause?
From the answer by @sachleen I changed the baud rate as per the tutorial and soldered pin 32 of the hc-05 module to rst pin of arduino.
After baud rate change opening arduino serial console no longer outputs anything. Why did this happen? I was getting serial output before when baud rate of hc-05 was 9600.
After soldering the rst pin arduino also seems to reset after serial console is opened. I did not add the capacitor, is it required and if so why? I also excluded resistors since it seems they are only for voltage reduction from 5v to 3V (my arduino is 3.3V version).
