PSGroove USB Boards and DIY Teensy Schematics Detailed

Sponsored Links
224w ago - With the release of PSGroove opensource PS JailBreak exploit for PS3, many are having trouble sourcing the required Teensy++, AT90USBKEY2 or AT90USB162 boards.

That said, today PS3JailBreak.com (linked above) has shared schematics for the Teensy so that users can build their own if they wish.

As always, click on the picture below to enlarge it folks.

Finally, those who aren't into DIY solutions may also wish to look into either the AT90 USB thanks to Fuddster or the BlackcatUSB Flash Memory Programmer (from version 1.2 on) which uses the same microcontroller (AT90USB162) as confirmed by chesteruhi. More on that soon, including a video!

To quote: "The full schematics are available below (1.0 are on the top 2.0 are on the bottom)."

Is your LED working properly?

edit: See the pics now.. it appears yours is working. I wonder why mine doesn't seem to work. I guess I'll have to quadruple check everything.

Just finished my stripped Teensy 1.0, made on a Prototyping Board. And it works I had to modify my printboard layout slightly, to make more rom for the crystal, and the switch. The soldering of the IC whent smoother then i had expected. The legs are very thin, and breaks easily with a wire attached to them... So after i had solderd all the wires to the IC, i dipped it in super glue.

I used the BAT54C Schottky diode, and its a SMD, so its wery small. I could have just used two regular Schottky diodes. I also soldered the usb cabels shielding to the print board, to take the stress of the usb wires. Also "made" a housing for the board, from somthing i had inn my back pocket

I didn't get it to work in Win7, it wouldn't accept the drivers. Works perfect in XP. I used Flip to do the flashing, and the teensy 1.0 hex file.

Parts List:
Ceramic capacitors
3x 1uf
1x 0,1uf
2x 10pf

Metal film resistors
2X 22
2x 1k

1x Led
1X BAT54C Schottky diode, or two regular Schottky diodes

1x Miniature switch (Print key)
1x Atmel AT90USB162-16AU IC
1x 16MHz crystal (HC-49)
1x USB cabel
1x Prototyping Board
28awg or 30awg wire
Glue, epoxy or super glue

Yeah its all right. I'm an EE, while it is possible for me to do something small like that, i checked it over n over.

It also doesn't work on the actual 2 Teensy 2.0 boards I got. Flashed the posted HEX file, and while the hack works..the LED didn't actually do anything. Not a huge deal, the main part works and thats what matters.

Not to be patronising or anything, but any chance you've got the polarity on your LED wrong? I made that mistake on my second board when I changed it to GND pull down and forgot to rotate the LED. That really is the most likely if you're not getting the LED lighting either way round.
