You need that adapter for 16F/18F series PICs as they require 12V during programming. BP uses a 24F series PIC so the adapter is not needed.

But you can use a friend's BP as a programmer, we should have a tutorial on the wiki somewhere.

Hi kamcm,

I see that at least you did tried to test your Bus Pirate with the following utility:
"Bus Pirate HPV Adapter SELF TEST utility v0.1" which I search for but could not find it.
Can I ask where I could download it and how to use it?
Thanks kamcm

Hi kamcm

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows I'm running.
Is a 64-bit OS, I tried DOSBox but was not able to run the file, then I tried to edit
the .bat file but I end up giving up, thank you kamcm

it works in 64-bit windows, you may download it with the wrong way.

https://code.google.com/p/the-bus-pirat ... lftest.exe

Download it by clicking the "View raw file" on the right hand side.

OR

https://the-bus-pirate.googlecode.com/s ... lftest.exe

The file should be 15K, you may did something wrong if it's not 15k.

I will reply today, please don't worry about that.
I attached a manufacturing order information to you in our ERP system. It include the quality inspection and testing record, the delivery time. you can see this order quanity is 1000pcs, first pass yield is 98.20%. Some problems happeded with SMT and Testing process. If you have visited some manufacturing factory, you will understand we will do the failure analysis and record every defective unit, that will be useful for tracking the problem for us.
The below is the detailed information for the MO02043, for your reference.

Thanks
Kevin

Does your testing process verify that the chip was actually programmed? Based on some of the replies here, this seems to be the suspected cause of the issues.

Yes, we test all the products, you can see 15 NG in the testing process, and that including the failure analysis and how to repair it.

Same here, Bus Pirate v3.6(april 2012) from seeedstudio DOA(well power lights up but thats it). scope shows gibberish on 232RL TX pin so probably that is the problem. I am definitely not ordering from them again since this is second time(out of two) they royally screwed up my order.(first time it cost me around 20€ and lots of time and nerves)

As I previously said, the main reason may be the counterfeit FT232RL.
The marking on the counterfeit FT232RL is CN480661.
