    Hmmm. . . . .
    from canbootloader.com
    Home>Pricing

    Basic License                   Developer License
        590€                              1390€

    Bootloader firmware compiled    Bootloader firmware compiled
    for selected device (.HEX)      and source code for selected
                                    device (.C)

    So it isn't free and as there is NO DEMO VERSION available it is OFF-TOPIC for this thread.  It is also totally off-topic for this Linux/Open Source forum.
     
    I call that "SPAM!"

    I retract and apologise for the comment about spam.  Informing us that your bootloader is still commercially supported, doesn't quite fall into that category.  However my other comments stand.  Furthermore I would advise anyone contacting you to use a disposable email address as your privacy policy sets no limits on your usage of their email address to promote your own products and services and does not offer any opt-out.

    1. Microchip AN1310: High Speed Serial Bootloader for PIC16 and PIC18 (serial terminal integration, cross platform, upgrade from AN851)
    2. Microchip AN1157: Serial Bootloader for PIC24F (upgrade from AN851 for PIC24, encryption version available but maybe not for free)

    Sorry for resurrecting such an old thread. I have looked into AN1310, I can download the source from microchip for both the uC and the PC side. Does this mean I am free to adjust the source code, and place this on my site, so other people can download it?
    The license header of AN1310 only states there's no warrenty, and the code is only allowed to run on microchip MCU's, but does not mention anything about modifying/distributing of the code.

    Is there a reason why Microchip's AN851 specifically states 18F & 16F87XA as opposed to 18F & 16F?  
     
    What is it about the upgraded architecture that can no longer be reprogrammed via the uart?

    Hi,
     
    Microchip Free bootloader (not open-source) for PIC32 : AN1388 for :
    1/ UART
    2/ SD card
    3/ USB device in HID class
    4/ USB HOST with USB stick in MSD class)
    5/ Ethernet
     
    All in one package and easy to implement on other peripherals because there is an abstraction layer between the flashing code ad the media used to collect the hex file.
     
    Additional bootloaders can be found in the Microchip libraries, especially USB device & HOST, as well as TCPIP.
     
    I also like the famous open source UART bootloader:
    ds30 loader which works on more than 500 PICs accross all PIC families !!! ;=)
    Supported devices by ds30 here
     
    Regards

    So, well, looks like there's no available free PIC24 Ethernet bootloader...
    I will try to put some things together soon Smile
     
    I am wondering about a "Web page" POST update, or a FTP/TFTP connect to a public/private server, or a custom application update (such as the PIC32 demo by Microchip).
    Will see...
     
    Probably will use a PIC24FJ256GB210.
