Arduini 1.6.5 issues with bootloader flashing

Post by njordan »

Hi,
i recently received my Z-uno....right now it seems to not work at all.....plugged in the LEDs start blinking, but as soon as I try to flash the bootloader or upload new software it crashes already at compiling state.....i have 1.6.5 which i hate as it is outdated but seems to be the only supported version. nevertheless i see the COM5 (Z-uno) device in settings...aldo tried the WinDriver on the webiste, does not change anything......

The error message for Bootloader Flashign is: Error while burning bootloader can be seen below, any ideas?

java.lang.NullPointerException

Sure you have chosen Z-Uno board and Z-Uno programmer? Never seen such an error

Thank you PoltoS. I just came here with the exact same issue, and i indeed forgot to set the Z-Uno programmer.
Works fine now :)

sorry....my mistake. I did choose the right board already....which i always do - but was not aware that there is another programmer to be selected...normally wiht ESP or Arduino i never change from mkII

one more question.....how do i get new firmware? and how to upload?

Regards Norbert

there is burn bootloader button. Arduino IDE will notify you (during sketch load once the version of the s/w does not match the version in Z-Uno.
