I'm stuck at upgrading my ps3 break, 1.0v. I connect my ps3 break to my laptop via USB, (windows Xp/windows 7), press the upgrade key, but when I open the device manager there is no new device. It should be something like "AT90USB162 " or any other device, but on the device manager list is no change. I installed also Atmel flip 3.4.2 but this application is uselss if my OS can't see ps3 break.
My ps3 break works just fine on my ps3 but I want to upgrade to v 1.4a.
I have the same problem, it seems that we both have the cheap clone from China. This clone is made with a PIC chip which has no bootloader so it cannot be upgraded. some have the buttons and some have none.. some are named ps3break and usbbreak.
You could try eclipse firmware manager (eclipsemod.com/download.php) worked for AVR Prankster after using PrHackster to unlock it or whatever that did, might work for others i don't know.. just start eclipse and plug device in if it detects it, it will come up connected in green writing hope this helps.
