would this one work? AVR AT90USB1287-16AU TQFP
What does it mean by you can also now remove the dongle, does that mean its possible to use third party software without the dongle connected?
I'm pretty sure when homebrew is created for the PS3 it will be loaded from another usb flash drive or external hard drive (like the backup manager) and it would be a .pkg file (correct me if I'm wrong).
Lucky for me, I live only an hour and a half away from PJRC in Oregon, so it shouldn't take long to receive. I do have a USB programmer from my school that uses the ATMEGA88. I am having issues getting the code to compile though to test it. If anyone wants to help me, a PM would be great
This. Everyone should read this and burn it into your minds.
It will be exactly like Xbox Live. Ban waves, console bans, you name it. Keep it offline to be safe. Or start looking for a 2nd "triple" now.
HERE, but they just removed the protection check for the PS JailBreak USB device so now people can use the free PSGroove exploit without needing a PS JailBreak dongle to accomplish the same thing and save $130+ in the process.CJPC mentioned it
First of all, thank you all for your great job mates!
Now, it would be useful to know if it works on 3.15 or I necessarily have to update to 3.41? (hope no as don't want to lose OtherOS)
an Arduino port would be cool if it's possible and it's available in most countries.
No, it's a completely different chip. Look for something based on an Atmega chip that's designed for USB interfacing, so part 1286, 1287, 168*, etc.
This is just the bare chip. Yes it would work, but you'll need to make your own PCB and get soldering...
