This question already has an answer here:
I have an arduino UNO with atmega 328 whose microcontroller got burnt. I bought a new atmega328. I have another working arduino with atmega8. I followed the instructions in http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard but I got a little confused.
I burnt the bootloader into my new atmega328 using atmega8 arduino as described in the link above. Now, can I replace my old atmega328 with this new bootloaded atmega328 to upload sketches to it? Or should I follow the steps described in the link to upload sketches?
