My PIC18F2550 DIY Board (PICTURES!)
So, seeing as how I live in Egypt of all places, I decide to do a DIY jailbreak. After a week of searching I get my hand on one (!!) Pic18F2550, the LAST ONE they had!
Anyway, since I'm a complete noob and the most I recall about circuits comes from the 11th grade I get myself a breadboard. I get all the required stuff, take a good look at ElSemi's circuit diagram and start cutting those wires.
I also got a Pic programmer since I know I'd need to flash the chip (comes without Bootloader)
Now I have 2 problems so far,
1: which program (Win pic 800? V3?) to use? Do they all work with any Pic Programmer?
2: as you can see from the picture up there, where the red arrow points, there's a spot where I need to use a switch or wire or something to tell the board I'm flashing a 28 pin not a 40 pin chip. I have no idea where to connect the wire O.o ..
Here's a picture of the breadboard so far (USB not yet connected), tell me what you think and please, save my ass =D
