Many thanks for putting this out there. You've been working very hard in this bootloader area for quite a while now and need to be recognized for your contributions!

I have the source code for the bootloaders ready to go up into a GitHub repo shortly. Then everyone can have access to the code from there rather than just through the forum. If it's OK with you, I'll add your bootloader-update sketch as well.

I'll post here when the repo is ready-

Thank you Brian,

Okay, a littlle mutual admiration here:

I think it was really a combined effort. You need to be recognized for the USB and spit-flash bootloader and a lot of the feature requests. Rich and Mark need the kudos for its inception, Gene kudos for the idea of Just In time flash erase and his technical help and generally being a really good engineer with great solutions; and lets add Jason to that category too. Rick kudos for getting this all into MPIDE, Jacob for finding and understanding and pointing out and helping with so many issues. Guy and Marc for their overall managerial organization. And the list goes on; really so many people have contributed; it is a good model of how cooperative development can work.

This is all open source so yes go ahead and put it on the servers.

Do you plan to do a version for the uC32 or will one of the other versions work for it?
