161w ago - A few weeks back Dominator7 made a guide on how to port / convert plain payload files for USB JailBreak dongles, and today garyopa at PSX-Scene has posted news of an ATMega16A Payload Injector project for PS3 JailBreak devices including PSGroove.
To quote: A lot of people that have bought the original PSJailbreak, or the various cheap clones, have been left in the dark with the old basic first public release of PSGroove that the cloners had burned into their ATMega16A chips that been widely used in the dongles that have been sold!
But of course with no bootloader burned in for future use, you can't update them to support the latest and greatest of the new payloads that have appeared like the Hermes V4b, and the very useful PL3 versions!
Along comes ATMega16A Payload Injector Project which originally started out as forum thread on Elotrolado, the very active Spanish site, with lots of good talented PS3 Developers!
So far on their Web site, they have lots of details on how to build your own programmer, plus they have designed a "Payload Injector" (which needs NET v3.0 framework), so that you can easy update the device, to flash a new payload.
They are hard at work also in figuring out a way to add a "BootLoader", so will need to only wired up a programmer once, and then any time update the device later when a new wonderful "Payload" comes out.
Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
The guys who brought the injector software so we could flash new payloads to these dongles, have done it again, and now we can add a bootloader to flash the dongle thru USB and enjoy all the latest developments (PSGrade, spoofing, and both Hermes and PL3 payloads).
They have made source code publicly available for us to make our own modifications.
For full details, and the full process described, check their website in the first post.
