The actual public version is a bit “buggy” and difficult to use, and it works well only on Windows XP, as Windows 7 and other OS have compatibility problems with it (some are just crappy things that you can fix with some tricks, while other makes the Flasher crash).

For starters, we had quite a delay. Our PS3 Devs have been using an expensive external programmer to do the job, however, these dumps differed than the dumps from the Infectus chip. It was quite a puzzling issue indeed.. which was the proper dump?!
After many hours of examination spanning over a few weeks time, it turns out the external programmer was the culprit! The software that the manufacturer provided had a flaw in it that would drop certain bytes, resulting in a corrupt dump missing OOB 64 bytes of data. Luckily our PS3 Devs managed to find and correct the initial problem, so a big THANKS to them!
Once that was sorted, testing began by modifying both the IPL and METLDR.. however, the initial detection byte test failed [received (8002F169) before the install completes, versus the standard: "data type is not supported" (8002F029) mismatched PUP error] although the reprogram worked fine. A retail PUP file currently will not install either.
Needless to say, they are now trying other detection...
