A few weeks back Dominator7 made a guide on how to port / convert plain payload files for USB JailBreak dongles, and today garyopa at PSX-Scene has posted news of an ATMega16A Payload Injector project for PS3 JailBreak devices including PSGroove.
Download: ATMega16A Payload Injector v1.01
To quote: A lot of people that have bought the original PSJailbreak, or the various cheap clones, have been left in the dark with the old basic first public release of PSGroove that the cloners had burned into their ATMega16A chips that been widely used in the dongles that have been sold!
But of course with no bootloader burned in for future use, you can't update them to support the latest and greatest of the new payloads that have appeared like the Hermes V4b, and the very useful PL3 versions!
Along comes ATMega16A Payload Injector Project which originally started out as forum thread on Elotrolado, the very active Spanish site, with lots of good talented PS3 Developers!
So far on their Web site, they have lots of details on how to build your own programmer, plus they have designed a "Payload Injector" (which needs NET v3.0 framework), so that you can easy update the device, to flash a new payload.
They are hard at work also in figuring out a way to add a "BootLoader", so will need to only wired up a programmer once, and then any time update the device later when a new wonderful "Payload" comes out.
