Self Bootloading Mod-Chip

It is not too late

I added it over here: Self Bootloading Mod-Chip

I can send it, individually if that helps.

I added my icon. Thank you! :smile:

Oh nuts sorry @crait I’d already pulled the image before then! I’ll make it ont eh next one.

Who is the bug in the corner that got left off, I should put him back


Wait it’s missing the official blinky, where is the file you want to use @Mr.Blinky?

I PM-ed a copy before. But here’s one more:

If there’s still time to shuffle things a bit,
is it alright if me and @pmwasson (the guy above my skull) swap places?
Having an orange line through just one eye looks a bit odd.

I stuck @Mr.Blinky on while I was at it.

And in case the cubic lerping is going to interfere with anything,
here’s a nearest neighbour version:

Posted a list of all the games here: I’ll update the list occasionally as I go. For now the github repo is private but after we do a few revisions then we will open it up for pull requests before locking it down for production. Dates for such things will also be posted soon!


I tuned the image of Sansan because it was wonky a little.
(This is based on @Pharap 's nearest neighbour version.)

BTW, what is the square which is right of OBONO. Is it a reserved area for something?
It seems to be added by @GnobarEl.

I’m fine if its need to reduce my logo. It can be moved or reduced, I’m ok with either.

He just wanted a square for some reason.

If it’s not too late I’d love to throw my little icon on it while there’s still a bit of space. You don’t have to keep it since I’m no one significant, but I do love my Arduboy!



No MrBlinky, no fx :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


Lots of waiting and now you can pre-order:


Nice! My only concern is why the shipping costs is 15$ to EU country (give the fact that the item is pretty small and light).

Ask USPS, actually when you order more than 2 things it costs more than is charged.

Try to ship me something and let me know how much it costs :slight_smile:

OH! You mean the mod-chip itself, yes actually I never really thought about I could probably ship it in a stiff envelope safely. Unfortunately the website is configured for flat rate shipping, and that’s how much it costs to ship an Arduboy. The only thing I can tell you right now is to try to get together with your friends and order together. I’ll see if there is some way I can put discounted shipping if you only order the mod-chip.

I ordered 3 FX mod-chips, so the $15 s&h didn’t sting quite as much. Well I guess the total amount still did.

Why yes, I do own 3 Arduboys. I’m pretty sure that isn’t at all strange to anyone here though.
I’m not sure if I will mod all of them though. I think I may want to leave the Arduventure one pristine.

Just to clarify, HW only (not Pre-loaded) means we can flash over USB… we don’t need a programmer… right?

I believe the custom bootloader can write to the chip,
but I don’t know if you need a programmer to overwrite the bootloader or not.

@Mr.Blinky is probably the best one to ask there.
(Though @tuxinator2009 might know too since he’s been doing some FX stuff.)

I do know it’s possible to use another Arduino board as a programmer.
(I wonder if it’s possible to use an Arduboy as a programmer…)

… also… when doing Dev work, if I want to just flash a single game to the 32u4… is that still possible (like a vanilla unit)… or do I need to always write to the SPI flash? :thinking:
