One eBay seller has these PS3AVR dongles listed now. He has it listed as just a USB programmable board. I don't believe he has this listed as the PS3AVR but that's exactly what it is!

BTW - upon downloadin the ps3avrv1.exe the F-secure is reporting it as containing Generic Trojan.Heur.JSZa7@VNWyAi ...

Just a headsup - it might be indeed absolutely innocent / false alarm due to the fact it would most probably communicate with some low level access with the dongle via USB but better by safe than sorry so you might want to either check the file using the AV software of your own choice or at least use it on some dedicated / isolated / test PC or at least in virtula machine etc.

Seems like no one wants to be inventive, everyone just copies everyone else. Psjailbreak seem to be the only innovational ones (ie. backup manager 1.1 features)

The only device worth dumping and reversing is whatever comes out of the PSJailbreak team, which has been done already and will properly happen again if they have a trick up their sleeve to get around the 3.42 update.

I see what you're saying but taken directly from the device description:
- Compatible with all PS3 models, both Fat and Slim upto firmware v3.41

No, This is NOT compatible with 3.42

No, This is NOT compatible with anything below 3.41

No, This DOES NOT block firmware updates.

This is simply a basic blank USB chip on a board.

CLONES DO NOT have magical powers to bypass things, they are simply CLONES using other peoples software that's already available.

So does that mean you could use software for all these devices on it?


I think this means its because this board is based on the AT90USB1286 Chip and uses atmel FLIP to program?
