Atmega328P ADAboot

by cmat1120 on Fri Jun 01, 2012 12:40 pm

Ok hopefully I'm not double posting this or something, I'm not sure if a previous attempt at posting this worked or not. I didn't appear to have worked so I think this should be the first one.

On to the question: I want to know if the custom bootloader on the Atmega328P has made any changes to the watchdog function? I want to use it to reset the arduino, but without bootloader changes it sets the chip in reset cycle.

Thank you.

I apologize for my lack of understanding, but do you mean it turns off the ability to use watchdog or does allows one to use watchdog by turning it off/resetting it when the board is reset by watchdog?

it allows you to use the watchdog - otherwise it would get 'stuck' in the bootloading process which would happen with 'stock' Arduino's - check the Adaboot code for details
