Re: Updating QCX firmware using USBASP AVR Programmer - bricked the chip

Probably the best way to attempt to recover the chip is to program it outside of the QCX environment. You need a breadboard and a few components to do this (oscillator chip, a few caps and some wires). 
I use this one:

If you're going to do a lot with the Atmega chips, it's worth having.
