Last year I bought one of these units with the intention of using it to develop PIC32 support in my PICMicro programmer found at

Well, it's been a bit longer than anticipated but I finally got around to it.

Here is an overview of the configuration.

I used my tool to update the firmware to the latest found at:

If you do update the firmware then please understand I can't be responsible if anything goes wrong and you will need to reboot the R-PI (currently at least) to return the UART feature to the GPIO pins to talk to the bootloader.

Later I will see about making some project templates to bypass using the IDE.

Good luck bye!

PS. It's all a bit quiet in the chipKITPi forum isn't it? :-)
