A more permanent fix is available though. Tim updated AVRDude to be compatible with all Bus Pirate firmwares, and take advantage of some new commands to increase the programming speed:
- addition of a much faster flash writing function
- no initial resetting of Bus Pirate (unnecessary, and will break BPv4)
- no parsing of Bus Pirate UI, unless ASCII SPI mode is explicitly requested
More details in the forum. Please help test this fix if you can, we’d like to roll it into the next release of AVRDude.
