I have a ATMEGA328-PU (not a atmega328P-PU) and managed to install the boot loader on it using an Uno as ISP, but now i can not upload any sketch, this are the steps I've done so far:

connected this pins:

reset to pin10

11 to 11

12 to 12

13 to 13

and 5V to 5V and ground to ground.

uploaded ArduinoISP from examples and then changed the programmer to Arduino as ISP.

Then i changed this line in avrdude.conf:

part parent "m328"
    id          = "m328p";
    desc        = "ATmega328P";
    signature       = 0x1e 0x95 0x0F;

    ocdrev              = 1;
;

to:

part parent "m328"
    id          = "m328p";
    desc        = "ATmega328P";
    signature       = 0x1e 0x95 0x14;

    ocdrev              = 1;
;

selected burn bootloader and uploaded the boot loader with success.

and then i removed pin 10 to 13 and connected reset to reset, RX to RX and TX to TX and removed the chip from Arduino UNO.

added this lines to boards.txt:

Selected that from board menu changed the programmer to AVRISP mkll and tried to upload the blink sketch but it stuck on "uploading" and after a while says "an error occurred during upload".

I triple checked the wiring!

    Is your chip set up with a crystal/caps, or a resonator? The chip needs an external clock source since that's your fuses are set up for. "changed the programmer to AVRISP mkll" This will do nothing unless you have a Programmer connected to the ICSP pins. What is connected to what here: "connected reset to reset, RX to RX and TX to TX and removed the chip from Arduino UNO."? – CrossRoads Jul 1 at 16:16

    newbie, use the github.com/MCUdude/MiniCore to burn the bootloader and serial upload. btw: you can put the 328 in the socket on Uno – Juraj Jul 1 at 17:24

    @CrossRoads, it started here arduino.stackexchange.com/questions/66694/… this question make more sense if you put the informations together. but you should read this question again – Juraj Jul 1 at 18:19

    sorry, you should burn a 328 bootloader from that package first – Juraj Jul 1 at 19:22

    same way like before, only with MiniCore. choose the right settings in Tools menu – Juraj Jul 1 at 19:32

Use the https://github.com/MCUdude/MiniCore for ATmega328. It has Boards Manager installation. Choose the right options in Tools menu for your ATmega328.

First burn the bootloader using programmer or "Arduino as ISP". Then you can do serial upload as usual.

You can put the ATmega328 on Uno if you want.
