I have a mini that I somehow bricked. I have tried every possible combination of SAM-BA, RS-232, TTL, gold pad reset that I can find, but it still refuses to respond to anything I throw at it.
It has 5V out on p21 when 12V is applied to p24 and there is just a slight amount of heat generated from the core.
Each of my serial adapters worked fine on the mini prior to it failing, so I know it is not my comm hardware.
I have tried powering with 9V battery, 8-AA's and power from the TTL adapter.
Is there a sure-fire method of resurrecting a device?
Is there somewhere I can send it for a post-mortem? (it's no good to me now...)
