AVR Arduino as ISP errors

Trying to get code and a bootloader on to the attiny has been…fun. The solutions to all your errors

avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000
avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
         Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
         this check.

avrdude done.  Thank you.

Error while burning bootloader.

Apart from making sure you have the 10uf capacitor across reset and ground, after googling for around 7 hours, re testing multiple chips, buying new hardware, the actual solution.

My wires were the wrong way. Simple as that. Even though i read 20 times to double check wires, i was so sure they were right. But they were wrong.

Apart from that

  • Wrong COM Port or Wrong Arduino Board selected in the arduino ide
  • Drivers not Installed (digistump)

Check your wires!
