Firmware upgrade manually

Normally, if you update the AVR Stuido, you need to update the firmware of programmer as well, and generally the upgrade of firmware following the software.

But sometimes the firmware cannot upgrade automatically, in this case you can try to upgrade it manually. (this method only work for studio 6 and higher version)

  • Open the installation directory of Studio, for example: c:\Program Files(x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\
  • Copy the firmware(avrispmkii_fw.zip or tagicemkii_fw.zip) which is located at tools directory to c:\Program Files(x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\atbackend\
  • Open cmd, and enter the directory where atfw program locats:
cd c:\Program Files(x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\atbackend\
  • Execute the command:
atfw -a avrispmkii_fw.zip -t avrispmkii


atfw -a jtagicemkii_fw.zip -t jtagicemkii

Note: Please according to your programmer to use the correspoding command and choose correct firmware
