Help!
Did I just brick my KK board?

So I've been having some issues with my KK board, and decided that putting the new 1.6 firmware on it might fix the issue. I have limited knowledge about flashing micro controllers so decided to use the KK Flash Tool by lazyzero.

My first attempt involved flashing it with the 1 second LED test. The was an error:

avrdude.exe: failed to write flash memory, rc=-1
avrdude.exe done. Thank you.
Error during writing flash.


However the LED did flash every second... But its clearly not working properly as when I try to flash the 1.6 firmware it doesn't work.

My KK board has a Atmega48V-10PU, so am flashing with the atmega48 (4Kb Flash) profile.
I am powering the board with the BEC off my ESC.
To flash the board I'm using the Pololu USB AVR which seems to be working fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, hope I haven't fried anything

Assuming you mean Minsoo Kim V1.6 software - I think it only fits onto ATmega168.

You need to upgrade your chip....
