Lately I’ve been interested in PICs. We bought a 16F628 only to realize that it requires too much work to always flash the program to the chip with a separate programmer. So, we bought some 16F88s, because they support bootloaders. Linux support seems to be a bit inadequate and there’s no Linux application to download a software to the bootloader of our choice, so I started to make my own downloader. Currently it works but only with a very limited number of different HEX files.
