  • ISP-Programmer (we're using a Evaluation-Board made by Pollin)
  • 10-pin connector cable (from Evaluation-Board to the NET-IO)

Flashing with avrdude

Avrdude offers several options. We will look on the most important, to make basic flashing of ethersex possible.

  • The chip you use, should be m32 for the ATMega32 in most cases: -p m32
  • Debug messages: -v
  • The protocol spoken with the programmer, for the Evaluation-Board: -c ponyser
  • The serial port the programmer is connected to: -P /dev/ttyS0
  • The command you want to execute: -U flash:w:ethersex.hex

After you checked all options and adjusted them to your settings you should have a command like this:

 avrdude -v -p m32 -c ponyser -P /dev/ttyS0 -U flash:w:ethersex.hex

Writing the Bytes

  • Disconnect the power from the NET-IO
  • Connect your ISP cable to the programmer and the Net-IO
  • Reconnect the power and connect your programmer to the PC
  • Execute the command you assembled earlier
  • Congratulations! If avrdude finished without any error you successfully flashed ethersex to your Net-IO!
  • Disconnect the power and the programmer from the Net-IO
  • Reconnect the power, your Net-IO should boot up with ethersex
