Codename Sonic Dongle
A small USB dongle for PSGroove
I made this thread to tell everyone that I am currently working on a USB dongle, based on the teensy ++ for the PSGroove software.
I am just a poor student so I am not entirely sure these will go in production, but I sure hope I can make that happen.
Current development status: The design is finished, I am currently waiting for parts to build the first prototype, expect a video of this next week or so.
-The dongle uses the same chip as the Teensy++ (AT90USB1286)
-The dongle can be programmed via USB using Atmel's FLIP software.
-The dongle is about the same size as a regular USB thumb drive.
-The price is yet to be determined.
-There is NO official website yet!
If someone advertises a link, claiming it to be the official website somewhere else than here, it is NOT true!
Here's a 3D render of the dongle:
Note: -The IC (AT90USB1286) is on the other side.
-In the image the board contains a (female) USB connector, the retail version will have a (male) USB plug so you can plug it directly into the PS3, without the need for a cable.
About the name: The final version will not be called Sonic Dongle, there is another name, but I'm not announcing it yet since the domain hasn't been registered yet.
If you have any questions, you can post here or PM me.
-Sonic Dongle Developer
PS: The dongle is meant for homebrew developers and is only to be used with the official version of the PSGroove (without the backup manager), if you use the unofficial version with the backup manager to run pirated software, you're on your own!
