Recently on twitter Jon Raymond asked about a firmware update for the older versions of the badge. My hesitation was big until this point, since I thought the charlie-plexing would take up too much space alone, to integrate animations like I did with the newer 0805 version of this badge. As you can see here, I've logged a bit about the progress over on twitter

I was able to put 7 animations onto the badge! If you want to try out some other animations on the push of a button, you now can! 

Download the hex - file from the download section and upload it to the attiny via:

avrdude -c usbasp -p t13 -U lfuse:w:0x3A:m -U hfuse:w:0xFF:m -B 2000
avrdude -c usbasp -p t13 -U flash:w:KITTiny.ino_attiny13_9600000L.hex

You need to solder a button between the PB4 Pad and GND and find a good spot to glue it down. Have fun :)

hm. no. not sure if they're necessary? basically completely rewritten software..

But why would I want to upgrade then? So that I had the knowledge that the code blinking the LEDs now does the same thing much more elegantly? Is there any visible difference?

  Are you sure? yes | no
