Hello everybody!

Some time ago I ordered a minimig with PIC from ACube.
Unfortunately the PIC seem not to have the tiny bootloader present as it is not responding when the minimig is connected via serial cable.
The only response I see is when I press reset during the tiny bootloader programs connection test (Check PIC/Write Flash):

Connected to \\.\COM1 at 115200
Searching for PIC ...
pic sending unknown data: "K" <> 4Dh...

Unfortunately I do not have a PIC programmer to get the tiny bootloader loaded to it, can anyone help me out?
I live in the Stuttgart area, Germany. Of course...afterwards we can have some beer and a retro gaming session :)

Greets and thanks!

Maybe one of the Amiga dealer will still swap the PIC to those with bootloader.
Just ask Vesalia or Amigakit if they may help.

Or go for the ARM Controller, there will be a lot more speed, compatibility and fun :)

Yes I will most probably do that. Thought about it already but it is worth a try as I would be good with the PIC features right now. I also wanted to look into PIC programming during the holidays so to get the PIC serial programming via the MINIMIG to work would be perfect. Maybe I can find someone with a programmer nearby. Thanks anyway!

Hi Ckheman :)

Effectively, you should consider taking an ARM controller available at our wehshop HERE, it really worth it and it gives more speed to your Minimig's board !

Thanks, Lionel and Laurent
