I’ll soon be updating the Hobbyduino Mini to the Optiboot boot-loader. According to the Optiboot Google Code Page:
- Allows larger sketches.
- Is a quarter of the size of the default bootloader freeing 1.5k of extra space.
- Sketches upload faster.
- Optiboot operates at higher baud rates and has streamlined programming.
- Adaboot performance improvements.
- Runs sketches sooner with no watchdog issues.
- Compatible with 168 and 328 Arduinos.
