Re: your statement about the PICKIT3.
The PICKIT2 can do the 12F18xx series, as well as a bunch of PIC32MX types and others that Microchip doesn't "officially" support.  Just gotta load up the newer (/hacked/modified) device files, etc.  Piece of cake.  (P.S. I hate the PICKIT3)
I didn't take it apart.
I turned it on.

The only stupid question is, well, most of them...

Save a fuse...Blow an electrician.

PICKIT3 works for me, and this chip, don't know if it can do something else. I newer owned PICKIT2 so can't compare. I watched Dave's review video after purchasing, so happened. Nice thing about PICKIT3 is its compelling clear red case, it just draws my attention every time I look at it and invites me to do some more PIC programming :).
Is there any software for programming those newer PICs with JDM programmer? I used icprog before, but it is not updated any more, since 2008.

Hello!

Today I released the source assembler code for this project.

I encourage you to share your modification and test results, in case you decide to build this project.

Here is the link to my firmware page, there is also basic flow diagram:firmware-page
Direct link to assembler file:metaldetector100.asm

I also add zipped asm file here as attachment.

Active discussion is now in the following forums:

We like!!!  ;D

I'm not quite on assembly code yet (mostly into repairs and some i guess you'd call it "hard ware projects" idk... in short! I'll have to make one when I get more into software.)
Check out my youtube! ^_^

I added RS232 connectivity option to my metal detector circuit.
Check out details at my page:http://digiwood.ee/en/metal-detector/computer-connection

I attach assembler source code here also.
