It's important to start by saying that this micro was working perfectly, and the keyboard I built with it was great. Then this happened:
While using the QMK Toolbox I tried to upload an oversized .hex file, and since it was taking too long, I hit the reset button. Clearly uploading an oversized hex file was the problem here.
Now the pro micro won't respond to anything. The green LDE lights up, but windows won't recognize it. I tried clicking the reset button and grounding the reset pin, and nothing works. I even tried the double tap on the reset key, or the tap and hold, nothing.
Have I totally broken the micro somehow? Can't I hard-reset it?
