    Yea that's the same one I'm looking at,how do I find out the Mhz on the hex file?

    update: I found this,now I'm new when it comes to dev boards,is this all I need for boot up?

    Hermes updated his payload — now at version 2 — which reportedly fixes the control issues you’ll find in Street Fighter IV and F1 2010 — possibly other games too. Packed in the download are hex files for:

    * at90usb162 (teensy)
    * at90usb1287 (usbkey)

    Expect other versions to follow. And if you have a working version of Hermes v2 for whatever device, feel free to share it with the rest of the world; email it to hacks @ ps3 dash hacks… you know the rest.

    I have no idea. I just know that usually the little footnotes at the bottom of eBay listings are the reasons that the item is so cheap/unpopular in the first place. Notice how it's at the bottom of the page in small font [​IMG]

    yea I will wait to see if anyone can back this up,not sure if anyone on this forum is good to answer as all the threads do not consist of dev boards and just dongle questions..Thanks for the heads up..




    NOTE: THIS CHIP IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH FLIP SOFTWARE AND HAS 8Mhz OSCILLATOR INSTEAD OF 16Mhz. Make sure your HEX files are 8Mhz Compatible


    hope someone can answer this :/

    So it seems it needs a modification. Google around for one.

    Which of the USB pens like PS3Break (Atmega version), PS3Key, PS3Jailbreaker have 32KB flash? Is the PS3Key PSGroove compatible?

    If you bought this cheap ass Teensy 1.0 knock off below, you got your money's worth and so did thousands of other people.
    [​IMG]

    Some people are getting ripped off though, because they are selling for $29.99 on ebay and ozmodchips is selling them for $54.99 today.

    Here are the latest .hex for it. (could someone else please host this ?)
    http://rydian.net/hosting/ps3/


    This board has been put together by an amature individual and has LED's installed backwards. Your LED's will never work properly unless you unsolder them and reverse them in their place. In other words the polarity for the LED's is reversed from the manufacturer. The .hex files are exactly right and can not be altered to fix this problem as it is a hardware problem not a software problem.

    This board will jailbreak your PS3 as-is after putting the proper .hex on it. The LED's do not effect it's ability to perform the JB.

    Originator of the chip (PS2Chiper) can be found at http://psx-scene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65395

    Well depending on what you want it for....it COULD be a good price.

    I however felt like I got ripped off.

    I have other boards so I use them but My friend bought this through me and I felt like we got ripped off.

    1.) It don't have enough mem to run the new asbestos hack
    2.) If you ever want the LED''s to work you have to unsolder them and turn them around
    3.) It IS NOT 2.0 like advertised it is 1.0
    4.) No other .hex will work only the .hex that the maker is releasing on said thread.
    5.) is that enough ?

    So there you have it, depending on your expectations and future releases, do you feel you got your money worth ??

    If so, well, good.

    EDIT: by the way, you could have built your own for $5 USD.
    respect

    well i ordered it actually for a friend , i don't think he cares much about homebrew and such as long as he can play his ''backups'' [​IMG] still thinking about getting a ps3 now, but i have a ipod 5g which can run some psgroove ports so i wouldn't probably need such a board [​IMG]

    Thanks man.


    My advice, use your ipod until you can buy a true ATMEL dev board. I got a Teensy 2.0 that I use, but I have others also.

    There are games that still don't work without a disc in the tray but use your best judgment with that. Try checking out compatibility lists and see what your options are. Myself personally, I would prefer the disc working but hey, to each their own. [​IMG]
