I usually do not have to post on the forums because I can usually find the answers by searching. Although I have been looking for a while and cannot find a solution to my problem.

Just set up my LED array. Double checked my connections (although I;m sure it is very likely i connected something wrong still knowing me D:) but am still having the same problem when doing the first Led_array test when trying to upload it.

the cmd reads it and i get the Reading | ####### |100%

then this

avrdude: Device signature = 0x1e950f avrdude: Expected signature for ATMEGA168 is 1E 94 06 Double check chip, or use -F to override this check

avrdude done. Thank you.

make: *** [ledarray-upload] Error 1

Thanks, Brett

Search the Nerdkit forum for "Double check chip".

I had a similar question and my answer was to use 168p not 168.

The -F sytax is like this "AVRDUDEFLAGS=-c dapa -p m168p -F" (no quotes) if you need to override the signature check.

actually just for anyone else that has had this problem, changing it to 168p did not work but adding the -F function worked fine. So you can try that also.
