I am still waiting for a cheap solution...
Exactly. Actually being able to find the tools in my country is more important than the price
Of course, the price shuld be <25 $ but the parts shoul easily be found...
Have you seen the topic where we were talking about 555 IC.
The nice thing is the power options witch can run the board from a battery/usb or AC-DC adaptor and it has a resettable polyfuse that protects your computer's USB ports from shorts and overcurrent.
Here is the circuit: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/arduino-duemilanove-schematic.pdf
As you can see it is just an enhanced version of what was posted so will be really suitable for those who don't like to built their own or just can be arsed to.
Hopefully this adds more intensive for others to go peek there own ps3 system and dump their own hyperviser. Thanks is0mick for starting this thread and thanks ckj1979 for your response.
You can use almost all modern atmel microcontroller (from range attiny to atmega with ISP programming feature), or you can port to PIC, 8032, etc...
But the 555 is a no good solution. Check the datasheet: it has a rise-, and fall-time of 100ns, TTL type of output (means no Hi-Z so it can interfere with the system), and not flexible.
If you really that out of resources, maybe try some schmidt-trigger and a latch/gate.
I have tried 3 different routes and everytime I tru to boot I get either a blacnk screen or an alert 0 and then hang.
If I remove the wire from the resistor it boots just fine. This drives me nut !!!
A picture wouldn't hurt if you have one.
I routed the wire the same as on xorlosers blog (Make sure you are not shorting out the resistor with bare wire over the top of it).
My wire actually comes from the same point (but from the right) then is routed through the gap between the column of components (just underneath the brown capacitor)
The length of the wire would be about 6 inches or so.
Hi guys. Just got my 555 and 4025. I know it was said to be impossible to achieve 40 ns but do I have any chance?
so.. who's up to do this one.. [personally i think GeoHot should, just to give the finishing touches on what he started] anyone for bets on the ramifications news wise on that one? lol...
