I'm trying to upload a huge sketch to my Uno R2. It's compiling just fine but it fails to upload at 94% of writing to flash...

The program is so large because of a big array of data in a separate .h file:

#include <avr/pgmspace.h>
const unsigned char PROGMEM data[] = {
  0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x7f, 0x80, 0x7f, 0x80, 0x7f, 0x80, (etc...)

A test sketch with just 12 bytes of data uploads fine, so the problem is either with the size or some weird bug triggered by some of the data.

Unless i'm missing something, this should technically work.

Command:

    /home/hatagashira/.arduino-1.6.5/hardware/tools/avr/bin/avrdude -C/home/hatagashira/.arduino-1.6.5/hardware/tools/avr/etc/avrdude.conf -v -patmega328p -carduino -P/dev/ttyACM0 -b115200 -D -Uflash:w:/tmp/build8921209068074674980.tmp/program.cpp.hex:i

  • To make your question more answerable, first, make up a large example that succeeds in loading, and an example with a hundred more numbers that fails to load; second, edit the question to quote the compiler's size messages [eg, like "Sketch uses 20,112 bytes (65%) of program storage space. Maximum is 30,720 bytes."] for the failing and successful examples. – James Waldby - jwpat7 Oct 26 '15 at 16:23

My two arduino nanos did flash and run the program correctly. I suspect a problem with the uno's serial communication but unwilling to troubleshoot further (i only have one uno). I decided to switch to the nano for further prototyping.
