The whole PSJailreak/PSGroove thing has a worldwide shortage of the all the compatible AT90USB chips.
While I wait for my order (which at the moment seems like it could take up to 2 weeks -.-) I will be looking at the PIC 18F2550 Port of the PSGroove software and trying to design a dongle for that.
The nice thing is that the 18F2550 can also be programmed with a USB Bootloader, this means that it would also be fully upgradeable via USB, with no extra hardware!
And about firmware 3.42?? Do you think that will ruin yours sales?
For now, yes, but I'm sure that as the scene starts to grow, so will the demands for these kind of dongles.
with the possibilities the exploit opens for sure a lot of people will remain on 3.41 - this is way more worthwile than the 'announced' OOFW3.21 months ago.
UPDATE: It seems that due to funding and parts shortages it will be almost impossible for me to continue developing this project myself.
So I have decided to just upload the board design. I'm sure a lot of improvements could still be made to it.
Note: The USB connector is supposed to be a male type A connector, since there is no such part available for eagle, I used a female type A socket, keep that in mind when using this design.
I will still be active in these forums if anyone needs help or has a question.

brd? what runs brd? and do you have a parts list etc
i could always contact a manufacturer and have these made myself
EAGLE Layout editor uses brd.
All the parts and their values should be indicated in the brd file.
yeah i ran eagle - wayy above my skillset.
Hmm, if you can find a good manufacturer for the boards, maybe we can team up?
