Videos: PSGroove PS JailBreak PS3 Exploit BlackcatUSB Port
Update: chesteruhi has now made available a PSGroove BlackCatUSB Fixed Leds hex code version recompiled with working leds- the blue led now lights up once exploit is running blue led turns off basically lets you know you did everything right.
We touched upon this in our previous article, and now comes more details on a PSGroove PS3 exploit port for BlackcatUSB devices alongside a few videos of it in action.
Courtesy of chesteruhi comes the necessary PSGroove BlackCatUSB hex code which he has confirmed as working with BlackcatUSB Flash Memory Programmers.
To quote: "All BlackcatUSBs (from version 1.2 on) use the same microcontroller (AT90USB162) and use the same software, drivers, and avr firmware. The only difference in the pcb versions is cosmetic.
So the BlackcatUSBs will all work no need to worry which one your buying, I have confirmed this. So purchase away before there all gone!
I have attached the blackcatusb hex for flashing and the manager pkg."

Worked for me, thanks for linking to the modded hex code. Now to decide if I should start backing up games or wait for an NTFS compatible manager to come out. /grin
ntfs support is on the way, so if i was you i would wait, as a lot of people are stating that if you use this .pkg and decide to go online at a later time, you will be banned, i cannot confirm or deny this as i have not tried myself but it is still speculation at this point.
BM v1.1 should be coming out soon an has a slew of options added. If i was you i would wait for a more stealth version... that is unless you don't mind taking the risk i took..
great info, just pre-ordered.
I have also ordered off the embedded computers site, £20 including shipping from US to UK is a steal! Hopefully it will arrive soon.
awesome. i had ordered a teensy while it said they were still in stock.. but apparntly they had sold out before i ordered. found a blackcat on ebay and it's already on it's way to me.
Is there a guide on what to do to flash this? I have a blackcat laying around that goes to my cable modem. I suppose you just install the blackcat software and plug it in usb to the pc and flash the files?
