hi all,

i've ordered 2 eclipse here in switzerland; the devices was empty, the firmware upload works without problems.

costs: 50 euros

you can not buy some avr-devices this time in switzerland; next possible date for order : 17.10.2010 ... for build an homebrew one.

the eclips works perfectly for me

thanks boss for the 1.1 updater

In case anyone has an EcliPS3 mod, I added the v1.1 updater to the first post now... it appears all the clones are updating theirs in attempt to keep up with PSGroove progress.
Eclipse Updater v1.1

- Added diskless version of the firmware, where games can be loaded from the app_home menu in GameOS. Many games don't seem to work with this method, so if you encounter any problems try to run them in the normal disc emulation mode (with an original disc inside).

- It is now possible to load a PSGroove compatible firmware using the "Load PSGroove firmware" option in the drop down menu.

Simply select any precompiled .hex file when prompted and press the START button to update your EcliPS3 with the new firmware (you can choose any file compiled for any board, it will be automatically detected and handled accordingly).

- Developers can now test new payloads by loading them with the "Import payload" option in the drop down menu (in other words
port1 configuration descriptor can be directly imported without the need to compile a new avr firmware or having an avr toolchain at all).

- Internal optimizations.

I think we should all get on our Noklas or HiPhones and check these jokers out because this is getting laughable.

In all reality theres only 3-4 manufacturers in China or taiwan that a pushing this board out like no other. The problem comes down to when the supplier ie: eclipse, yes, all the other clones. don't have the man power to single handly (sp?) flash every chip that gets shipped to them.

There is no way to mass produce these chips already flashed (that i know of) and that's why all these new clone sites say they are shipped without software (not to protect themselves from sony)

really, so I'm guessing these are fake no doubt. Making news about a project considered to be being worked on and lying about FW support.

Basically these guys are reading news and updating their features to match the news. I.E., the lv2 access and previous fw version updates on the homebrew scene.

these clone fakers need a better thing to do to waste time.
