November 17, 2010 // 11:13 pm - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene reports that Maximus has released AnyHex for pre-compiled ATMEL PS3 hex codes to convert them into flashable binaries for PIC18F devices along with some videos.

Download: Maximus AnyHex HID 2.0 / Maximus Generic Fix / Maximus AnyHex HID 2.0 Generic Fixed / HEXTOOL v1.0

To quote from the official site: Porting the .hexes from the daily new payloads is taking me more time than I expected, and since you deserve a faster port of the payloads to the PIC18F devices I decided to invest some time in a new HID Loader 2.0 with a new "any hex" Import Feature, basically with this you dont need to wait never for me to port the payloads to the MAXAVRUSB 1.2 32KB or to the PIC18FUSB devices.

Just do the Import of the .hex from any ATMEL device (Teensy suggested) and the new application will convert to the PIC format. I have tested with kakaroto, psn yes, hermes, etc. Consider this new feature as BETA. CLICK HERE to get the new HID Loader 2.0

Note there are 2 executables there, if you have problems with pic18fusb board using the "_generic" then uset he "_specific_pic18fusb". I will issue a fix later to solve once for all the problems with verifying the pic18fusb boards but for now I am releasing a splitted application.

Also on the table I am posting the new .hex for PSN for the Maximus ATMEL board, you can now use the import feature to flash your pic devices with the same .hex !! Is not cute?

If you need a small preview on how the new feature works check this videos:

Here is the HEXTOOL 1.0.1 dedicated converter tool by MAXIMUS via iLLNESS ( in case anyone needs it.

Its a tool to extract the payload components from an hex file and to paste over another, so teorically is a tool that might help to port any new released payload to another board.

It also work if you want extract .bin payload files for your specific board flasher.

Maximus has just released a fixed version of the HID 2.0 which fixes an important bug:
I Succesfully spotted the bug causing the backups not loading after importing it with the new HID Loader 2.0, its due to the nature of the hermes/kakaroto differences. The problem is easily fixed if you replace the files located under "generic" folder, with the ones in this FILE.

Also if you want to re-download the full solution now fixed you can do it HERE. All those having problems with yesterday release, Please post me results on the comments to see if everything ok now.

No luck for me either. Win7 64bit

Edit: Got it working. For me it was I was missing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package.

So this is suppose to work for PICDEM USB such as PIC18F2455?

Thanks for the advice. I have tried installing these, then rebooting then retrying the program with the same results. I have also tried this setup in windows xp mode on 7 and still crashes. Anybody else got any advice?

For those that are having problems getting this program to work you will need to first install the following two programs:

.Net Framework 4
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
