MYSbootloader for Pro Mini 1Mhz
I managed to make MYSController work with my gw just today. Next project is the MYSbootloader.
First: I've never changed a bootloader or fuses upto now.
I want to change the fuses to run the Pro Mini at 1Mhz (battery powered) and burn this bootloader.
Do I need to burn the fuses before uploading the bootloader? I didn't found that option in Arduino IDE (I'm going to use an Nano as ArduinoISP).
What do I have to change in the bootloader to change frequency and how do I have to compile the new hex file?
Sorry for all these noob questions, but I didn't found helpfull topics with the search.
Get yourself a USBtinyISP, can be bought cheap on ebay.
then read the good stuff from Gammon http://www.gammon.com.au/power and then you can with avrdude program the fuses after you have programmed the sketch
I already read this article some time ago about the sleep modes. The reason I want to go for 1Mhz is to reduce BOD to 1.8V with my battery.
As far as I know I don't need an USBtinyISP, because i can use ArduinoISP for the same purpose, right?
The thing most important to me (which I didn't found in tutorials online) is how to modify the MYSbootloader with the right settings.
Concerning the order: I think I have to do first the fuses, second a new bootload with correct Mhz (for timings during boot) and then a new sketch. Can someone confirm this?
@Anduril MYSBootloader was tested for 1Mhz (actually the bootloader works unmodified down to 125KHz with 1Mhz & prescaler 8 ). Therefore, burn the correct fuse settings (remember: MYSBootloader is 2kb, therefore BOOTSZ = 1024 Words = 2048 Bytes) and verify if OTA updates are working.
How did you get it to work??
Could you write a noob tutorial on how it works with bootloaders and how to upload them?
I've downloaded the mysensors1.5 zip file, but what are the next steps, how do i get it to show up in arduino sketch and after that what must i change and how do i upload it in my arduino??
