    Guide: How to Upgrade PS3Break Firmware with MAC OSX

    Sponsored Links
    Normally we don't cover MAC stuff, however, today Marcello from [Register or Login to view links] (lupin4 on our site) let us know he has made available a guide detailing how to upgrade PS3Break firmware via MAC OSX (AT90USB162) for PS3 JailBreak users.

    To quote: This procedure has been tested only with PS3Break 1.0 key (atmel chip) and do not guarantee that work with other key (in theory just change some parameters).

    How to flash a PS3Break 1.0 with MAC OSX:

    New method (thanks to ScotthishCpt) with this procedure you do not install anything because ScotthishCpt built a self-contained SDK, and when you're done, just unmount the disk image without trace or driver in the system.

    1) Download from [Register or Login to view links] the modified version of Avr8_sdk.
    2) Double click on (AVR8_SDK.dmg) and mount the volume (avr8_sdk).
    3) Browse to Applications directory in the volume.
    4) Launch SDK TERMINAL.
    5) At this time insert the PS3Break key in the usb port in DFU mode (click the upgrade button immediately after it's inserted).
    6) If the key is correctly in DFU mode the green light should be off, you can check it by opening system profile -> USB. you should have a windows like this (AT90USB162 DFU).
    7) Now download the latest firmware (PS3Break or PSGroove per AT90USB162) and copy for convenience in the ROOT of the MAC, and rename it flash.hex (otherwise you should change the path with teminal command CD and the name in the command below).

    Check DFU bootloader with this command:

    dfu-programmer at90usb162 get

    If the response is [ Bootloader Version: 0x05 (5) ] is all ok

    9) erase the key:

    dfu-programmer at90usb162 erase

    if everything is ok no reponse

    10) flash with new firmware with this command:

    dfu-programmer at90usb162 flash /flash.hex

    That's all you have a new PS3Break!

    I'm wondering if anyone has been successful in getting the Amtel Flip software running on a Mac? Currently, whenever I need to upgrade my Minimus I have to boot up my Windows partition (in Parallels) and do it from there.

    I tried getting the Flip software running in Crossover; it installs ok, but then just complains that it can't find a Java Runtime Environment (and I've got no idea how to set up Java in Crossover)... ?

    In theory, this should work with blackcat USB and other chips in the same atmel family, right? Anyone brave enough to try?

    Thumbs Up

    My Blackcat (V1.7) finally arrived. I decided to give this a try. It works fine.

    I would assume it should work with any chip lupin4 listed.
