So I decided it would be a good idea to flash a firmware onto my mega 2560 for a project. I ended up flashing the wrong side of the ICSP header (one near the usb plug/ M16U2) and killed my arduino for the most part. I'm a newb for the most part when it comes to this. I plug it in and the 'L' light is on with the 'ON' light as well. Wont show up in device manager, can't load sketches and can't get into DFU mode.(REV3 has DFU right?)
I have both a usbasp and USBtinyisp programmer and have tried 5 - 10 firmwares on both sides of the headers in hopes I can get it to work again.Literally almost tried everything I could find to get it to flash back. One guide I did find that got me somewhere was this though:
It appears to flash correctly with whatever firmware I use, but cannot pull the firmware off it to check or do the rest of what it says.My guess is that 1 or 2 of the firmware's are gone. Have erased the firmware/relfashed and tried to flash in the IDE with no luck in it working.
I did use this command to read the firmware(or lack of) on both sides of the header to get a better idea of what might be going on:
I don't know if I'm supposed to flash one side first then the other or flashing one will be able to do both at the same time. Here is an example of how I would flash from avrdude:
avrdude -C avrdude.conf -P usb -p m16u2 -b 1200 -c usbasp flash:w:Arduino-COMBINED-dfu-usbserial-atmega16u2-Mega2560-Rev3.hex -U lfuse:w:0xFF:m -U hfuse:w:0xD9:m -U efuse:w:0xF4:m -U lock:w:0x0F:m
With each side I would set the correct the fuses from what that file pulled up. So if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong for why it is not working I'd appreciate the help. Just don't know if I can save this or it's gonna end up in the garbage.Thanks
