usb port broke off (damn kids)

Post by jsgarage » Thu Jun 11, 2015 8:48 pm

Hey Hey,
my trusty etherten has the usb connector snapped off, is there any other pins that I can program the board from, or am I up for a new one?
(I dont have the skill to resolder pins so small)

the sketch it currently has has errors(doesn't perform correctly) so as it sits, its no good to me :(

There are two options, either use a USBasp to upload sketches to the board (it connects via the ICSP pins): ... vr-arduino

Or if you have another Arduino or compatible board at hand you can use it as a programmer, for example: ... rogrammers
