PS3Key Team Release 2.1 Update Open Hex Edition PS3 JailBreak


Sponsored Links
206w 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.

Was able to update without a probelm (sorry all) but it seems like v2.3 update does not have the new features introduced by "hermes v3" :-(
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 the same problem as Mona222 ... i can get it to light up both blue and red lights, but no matter what the installer just hangs,when i try to update.. i'm using Vista as well (32x) i thought maybe my firewall had something to do with it, but it wasn't i also noticed that Vista didn't recogniced the USBKey.. maybe it there the problem lies??

run it in xp mode,

and if it doesent activate the update button go to device manager and press search for new devices, while its red/blue

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.
