I have the famous time mismatchproblem for my Chipkit Uno 32 board and i can not upload any program on it! I have been looking online and it seems that the problem has been found and it will be fixed by upgrading the boot-loader in the board. the only way to do that is to get another device like PicKit 3 or IDE-3, and use them to upload the new hex file from some other place to the board using another program from some where else to upload it!!!!! now I have to scream, there are many different forums which point to different hex files and different... if it is a well known problem why some one does not put the FULL instructions with the correct LINKS to the hex file and the program with correct PicKit version somewhere in wiki, so we would not search the whole day around. I think this is the least thing that the developers of this chipkit should do to fix this bug (it is their fault, ha?). anyway I hope that we get the solution all in one place with the whole hardware and software and files needed to fix it.

Had same problem , uploaded bootloader to the Uno32 with PICkit2 .

I think it will work with PicKit-3 as well? is not it?!

'PK3' That is what is usually quoted by Digilent , I just wanted to make it clear that 'PK2' worked as well.

The PICKit2 supports the PIC32MX3XX series devices, it does not support the PIC32MX5XX/6XX/7XX devices. A PICKit2 can be used with the Uno32, it can't be used with the MAX32.

The hex files for the boot loaders that Digilent programs into the boards at the factory are available in the support documents section of the product page for the product. The support documents section is at the bottom of the page, so you'll probably have to scroll the page to see it.

The source code for the boot loader is available on github.
