===== 1. About Ethersex =====
Ethersex, originally developed to provide an alternative firmware for the etherrape[1] hardware,
evolved into a full-featured still light-weight firmware for the atmel atmega processors.
For more information and a comprehensive documentation (in german) consult http://www.ethersex.de!

===== 2. How to add a new hardware pinning =====
[Wiki for more information: ethersex.de] Use the script at scripts/add-hardware to add a new pinning.
===== 3. How to configure the firmware =====
[Wiki for more information: ethersex.de] Make sure that you meet the requirements.
Use "make menuconfig" to configure and "make" to compile the firmware. The final hex file is named "ethersex.hex".
