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.

Hi all, found this online ... it seems to show how to put the PS3Key into a "DFU" mode which allows Windows to detect the raw ATMEGA32U2 device and so would allow "Flip" to flash over the PS3Key-Custom-bootloader and so we would be able to then flash a scene HEX (is PL3) to it.
Am at work ATM so can't test. Also not sure I want to :-)
PS: Not sure how future updates would work as I believe it is the PS3Key-bootloader which puts the device in "update mode" after 3-quick-hotplugs. Unless we would need to short the two pins every time? Kinda wish the PS3Key team would step-up a bit here :-(
