thanks for the reply. I think that is exactly what happened to my ps3key. I'm gonna wait it out a couple of days to see if the ps3key team have any solutions before i send it back.
plug it in and out of the usb port 3 or 4 times in fast and both leds light up. run ps3 key updater and it says in the left bottom if it has found it. load the update and press update that's it job done (does any one have a link to the 2.1 update it won't download for me?) i had to do it on xp vista just hangs for me when trying.
hey minatek. i order mines as pre-order way back also. At least we know its an issue and apparently it seems to happen to people who receive their first 100 chip batch from china. The administrator said that ps3key knows this issue and is working on finding out why. Let me know what you find out minatek.
For those that think its just getting the blue led on or getting both led on, we cant get them to turn on. Stays on red led no matter what how many usb ports we tried. I guess we are the unlucky ones. =(
i will try it on my xp computer tomorrow to see if there are any issues with windows 7.
mona222 - not sure if you meant on your vista system, the download keeps hanging up on you or the update application.

Like many others, I got my ps3key yesterday. It worked straight out of the box but no matter how many times or how fast I plug this thing in and out, it doesn't go blue. I've even watched youtube videos showing people performing successful updates and no matter what USB port on no matter what computer, it won't work for me.
I thought for sure that I must have received a AVRkey according to many posts claiming that if your chip is ATmega32U2 inside then you have AVRKey. (I opened it up and checked) It does indeed have the ATmega32U2 chip in it. There are no labels on the outside but inside it does have the new extra tape already applied underneath (something made by "3M")
At this point, I don't know what I have. I have emailed them because I couldn't even get the firmware because it showed up without a yellow serial. (even though my order history says "PS3Key USB Version w/ Yellow serial/sticker"). Somebody was kind enough to post the official ps3key firmware update megaupload or I wouldn't have that either.
All I know is that it works, but I can't update it.
