TUTO: How to burn Yocto v1.0 Bootloader with an ArduinoISP

Dear Diyer,

We receive lot of question on how to burn the Yocto v1.0 bootloader on the Atmega1284p.
This tutorial describe how to do that with an Arduino as ISP programmer.
You need:
-1x Arduino Board
-Ardnuio 1.0.6 IDE installed and running
-Yocto Bootloader copied in Arduino IDE.

1. Download
YoctoBoot v1.0.zip
(95.96 KiB) Downloaded 504 times

2. Unzip and copy "Yocto" folder to "...My documents\Arduino\hardware"
3. Open ArduinoISP Sketch

4.Burn it in your Arduino Board (Don't forget to choose the right board you get in Tools>Board>....)
Image

5.Connect ICSP Yocto connector to your Arduino Board as follow:
Image

6.Choose Arduino as ISP programmer in Tools>Programmer...
Image

7.Select Yocto BOOT 16mhz Board (If you don't find "Yocto BOOT 16Mhz" in Tools>Board that because you forgot to copy "Yocto" folder to to "...My documents\Arduino\hardware")
Image

8. Burn Bootloader. Arduino is burning Yocto Bootloader in your Atmega1284p. DON'T POWER YOUR YOCTO, IN THIS CASE WE USE ARDUINO +5V POWER RAIL
Image

9. Now you are able to upload "Yocto v1.0 SYSEX"

Feel free to ask question about this Tutorial.

I'll just buy it on amazon since I'm in canada and don't want to wait but judging by that link I'll assume the UNO model works. Thanks again

I was hoping someone might be able to help with this. I've completed the build, and when I power the yocto, all the LED's light up.

When I try to upload the firmware it gets as far as step 8 which fails with the following message:

avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000
avrdude: Yikes! Invalid device signature.
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
this check.

I've checked the connections with a multimeter and they seem to match up to the chips data sheet. I've brought a new Atmega 1284P chip, which does the same thing. I've tried with 2 different Arduino's with the same result.

I'd happily pay for a pre-burnt chip, but they don't seem to be for sale.

I've limited experience using arduino, so not sure what to try next.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What are the fuse settings? I'd like to stay away from Arduino and just use AVRdude or Atmel Studio

Lock = 0x3F , efuse = 0xFD, hfuse = 0xDC and lfuse = 0xD6
