I just got my blackcat in 1 hour ago, It worked.. but strange, when I tried use that led fix hex file,but my ps3 just popup a message with unknown usb device, so I change back with the thinnpikkins hex and work out fine!
Yes After working on this all night following all directions for multiple boards and tring different hex and stuff. I found the problem with the 1.5 board... This is something stupid 2.. The ps3 need a short usb cable hooked up with this blackcat... I have tested a few sizes and the one I got to work was a 3fter. I then had gone back and tested different hexes and most of them work correctly... I hope this helps out cuz it was driving me nuts cuz I knew I was following the directions correctly and watching the videos exactly..
well at first the cables i was using to the ps3 were 5 and 6 ft er and they flashed alright... but the console never got exploited... The I found a 3ft cable and i hooked it up and it worked,,, So yea Id say anything shorter than 3ft would work... Thats if you get it to flash with the other previous steps...
I am able to flash using the Flip 3.4.1 with any of the cables lengths..To flash switches have to be placed towards the tcisno 1.5... then I hit the button to put into program mode... After the flash was successful I put the switches back in to the on position (Towards the usb port).. After I had flashed the black cat my PC always saw a generic usb hub... But with the ps3 I needed to use the 3ft cable for it to recognize the exploit...
Thank you for posting this! I was starting to go insane.. I have both a fat and a slim ps3.. The fat worked fine with the 6ft cable that came with my Blackcat.. but the slim would not work no matter how many times I tried.. Didn't even think about the cable since the fat ps3 worked with no problem...
After reading this, I scoured the house looking for cables.. found 2 more 6 footers.. tried em.. didn't work.. then finally found a 3 footer and that's what it was..
Are others getting the slim to work with the 6ft cable?
I am having a tough time trying to move the hex the the black cat, here is what is going on... I have been watching the video from page 2 post # 11 and I make it up until the 4:13 mark is where I have the problem. I end up getting the found new hardware wizard coming up in windows:
Please wait while the wizard searches at90usb162, Cannot install this hardware, crm.atmel.ftp.ispexception, could not open usb device.
Finally my blackcat arrived, funny thing I got impatient yesterday and ordered a maximus and both got delivered to my door today with 1 hour difference!! Damn, oh well, I have another option just in case now.
