PS3Key Team Release 2.1 Update Open Hex Edition PS3 JailBreak


Sponsored Links
225w ago - Today the PS3Key Team have released their 2.1 update Open Hex Edition PS3 JailBreak to use with generic devices like the Teensy or the PIC and have sent out an email that I received.

Download: PS3Key 2.1 Update Open Hex Edition

To quote: "We've just released v2.1 of the PS3Key firmware in two different flavors...

One is the easy-to-use .upd file which you can use with any genuine PS3Key using the PS3Key Updater Application for Windows.

The other is an 'open' HEX file which is designed for use on generic devices other than PS3Key dongles.

The v2.1 firmware update includes all of the features in v2 and also fixes a few other minor bugs."

New features in v2.1:

1. A series of minor bug fixes.

New features in v2:

1. Now supports peek/poke commands.
2. Backups on USB HDD can now run without an original game in the BluRay drive.
3. Works with Backup Manager 2.

indeed so it seems, it sucks, i guess could flash it with some other hex for this chip, or just hang on, as the ability to use their update manager and things is ruined by flashing it with some other payload i think.

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.

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.

Edit: They are now attached below.

i have been using Teensy_16Mhz.hex from the v3_hex.zip on my avrkey and it works perfect except for the LED's dont light up... but for me thats no problem.

Yes and No :-(

YES = The Teensy V1 uses a AT90USB162 @ 16MHz
No = According to [Register or Login to view links] the PS3KEY uses a ATMEGAU32U4

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.

Thanks microman2006! Found a Teensy_16Mhz.hex in pre-compiled hermes-v3_hex and will try in a bit.
