Re: Building Arduino 1.0.1 Bootloader for Leostick

But what then? Can I burn a shiny new Caterina bootloader into my LeoStick with just Arduino 1.0.3 ide (if so, how?), or do I need to solder the ICSP header onto the thing and go find some additional hardware to burn a new bootloader into it? Did you ever figure this out? I'm wondering the same thi...

Re: Building Arduino 1.0.1 Bootloader for Leostick

There are two hex files under the bootloaders directory that adr1an published in the file leostick.zip Caterina-Leonardo.hex, and Caterina-LeoStick.hex So when one selects Arduino ISP as the programmer, then selects the Freetronics LeoStick as the board (which finds it under hardware in the sketchb...

Re: What is the trick to get windows 7 working with card

You can usually bypass the signing requirement for Windows 7 64bit; it can get a bit contrived, but it's possible.

Re: Which pins for providing power without USB

Hi Jon,
I had found the schematic, but hadn't been sure how to interpret it.

ta,
Toby

I'm not clear on which pins I should be providing the 5V power to -- is it the one marked "VIN" or one of the ones marked 5V? (There ...
