    Isn't "blank check" just checks whether the device is blank and should work in this case?

    You are not thinking that the program actually try to erase a device then tell you it is blank, are you?

    I didn't miss it, I just didn't understand :lol:
    Bootloader HEX is an essential part of Bootloading type of programming. So it has to be programmed correctly. What is your problem again?

    Hi Jay,

    I know why you are confused.

    You are right to tell kupikupi to use "Verify" to check that the bootloader HEX file was sucessfully loaded into the PIC.

    Right now he doesn't even know whether the bootloader HEX file is being programmed into the PIC or not.

    OMG, you mustn't move the source file which has additional include files (those icdpictypes.inc and spbrgselect.inc) out without them! Just compile dirrectly in Tiny folder and it WILL work.
