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.
Didn't get it to work on either win 7 or xp, 3 diffrent computers tried so now i've talked with the company i bougth it from and sent i back for a replacement, now i just have to wait around a month for the new one to arrive
Hi all - PS3Key just arrived! VERY much looking forward to start developing but am unsure which chip is actually in the PS3Key. What I mean is that I would like to flash Hermes V3, presumably with "Flip", but have no idea which chip the PS3Key is based on.
So I'm unsure ... and am at work at the moment so unable to test either. Also, from what I've read, once you "Flip" flash a HEX onto the PS3KEY, you will no longer be able to use the official PS3KEY updates (.upd) files - which, at least right now, is not a problem as their releases lag psgroove/ hermes's.
Please keep us informed if you have luck with AT90USB162 or ATMEGAU32U4.
PS3Key Update v1.3 and v2.3 Firmare Update just arrived
We have just released v1.3 and v2.3 firmware updates in the downloads section.
These updates work with the fat PS3 models. The rest of the code is identical to v1.2 and v2.2 in that it fixes issues caused by the PS3 USB power supply, so we strongly recommend that all users update to one of these new firmware releases immediately.
Just to recap: Our 1.x releases include the original PS3Key firmware whereas our 2.x releases support the newly introduced features such as peek/poke and the ability to play backups without an original game in the BluRay drive. You can switch back and forth between 1.3 and 2.3 whenever you like.
Site is to time unavailable for me. I will add the new fw´s as soon as they are available.
i have almost the same problem.. My PS3Key does go Blue and Red after 3 tryes within 10 sec´s... but no matter what it wont update. I'm using Windows Vista 32x and i have noticed that Vista dosn't recognize the PS3Key at all.. maybe that has something to do with the problems.. not sure though.
i have the same problem as Mona222 ... i can get it to light up both blue and red lights, but no matter what the installer just hangs,when i try to update.. i'm using Vista as well (32x) i thought maybe my firewall had something to do with it, but it wasn't i also noticed that Vista didn't recogniced the USBKey.. maybe it there the problem lies??
