The required BOOTLOAD.asm is located in the BOOTLOAD folder. Based on the microcontroller you are using it may become necessary to change the TX and RX pins and ports in BOOTLOAD.asm to match with your microcontroller • You need to assemble the BOOTLOAD.asm using the assembler that comes with AVR STUDIO. This will create a final file called BOOTLOAD.hex • AVRs have “fuses”! The only fuses that are relative to boot loaders are the BOOTSZ1,BOOTSZ0 and BOOTRST fuses. The BOOTSZ1 and BOOTSZ0 fuses specify how much of the memory should be “set aside” for the boot loader(Fast Tiny & Mega Uart Bootloader needs 256 words of space) • The BOOTRST fuse tells the microcontroller to boot up at the beginning of your boot loader code. It is crucial to have this fuse programmed • You need your hardware programmer to program the bootloader into the microcontroller • You should also decide which communication protocol you want to use with your microcontroller (USB,RS232,etc). This allows you to easily select the right hardware for interfacing between the UART of the microcontroller and your computer
