I've been wondering if there is any method to burn a Micronucleus bootloader into a blank ATtiny85 Digispark using just Windows or a Linux distro, and not needing another Arduino board such as UNO that acts as ISP.

    it will be hard even with programmer or other Arduino. only other option is a wiring on computers parallel connector. but most new computers don't have it. – Juraj Jul 4 '20 at 7:38
  • I've found some guides about how to burn the bootloader using an UNO and the process doesn't seem to be very hard, my trouble here is that i don't have an UNO at the moment so i'm looking for alternative ways to do it. Could you explain which would be the way to go using a parallel connector? – Vile Jul 4 '20 at 8:55
  • the Digispark doesn't have reset pin. that will be a complication – Juraj Jul 4 '20 at 9:09
  • Here are some more simple programmers (including serial port, which may be easier to find). – StarCat Jul 4 '20 at 14:43
