[Arduino] Burn JTAG Enabled Bootloader on Arduino Mega (ATmega2560)

To enable the JTAG Interface on an Arduino Mega the JTAGEN fuse bit must be set to zero.

A modified Arduino bootloader with JTAGEN fuse bit enabled can be programmed by using an Arduino Uno as ISP (In-circuit Serial Programmer).

The Arduino IDE can be used to burn the bootloader after making the following modifications to <Arduino IDE Path>\hardware\arduino\avr\boards.txt

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\boards.txt"

The following calculator can be useful to calculate the correct value: Fusecalc

The value is modified from 0xD8 to 0x98

## Arduino Mega w/ ATmega2560

Connect the Arduino ISP (Arduino Uno) to the target (Arduino Mega).
Connect the Arduino ISP (Arduino Uno) to the PC with an USB cable.
