Noob Help –
WEll my first question is.. im running my Ps3 with TI 84 with what i think is 1.1 payload and im running OM 1.14.2 and its working like a dream but i would like to switch to a dongle. I know what you are thinking wheres the question.. Which dongle is the most efficient right now and will my ps3 have to be "broken " again?
On a more noob note i know theres different payloads but what exactly does that mean? because all i read i read about is Hermes this Hermes that i wanna know how to put the Psgroove 1.1 that i believe i have on whatever dongle can this be done?
If you're planning to buy a dongle, I'd definitely consider one which has 128KB of memory at least. At the moment I believe the Teensy++v2 and x3Max both meet this requirement (Teensy++v2 being the cheaper option). The extra memory just means that you should be able to run things like Linux and other stuff which require more than the standard 16/32KB of memory found in most dongles.
If you buy a new dongle, you just have to do the regular process of connecting it when the PS3 is off, pushing the power button and eject button quickly. Nothing else is required - it would just replace your calculator basically.
Also payloads, from what I understand, are revisions of the code used in the dongles/devices. Basically Hermes (a hacker) has added some great changes to the code by enabling disk-less loading of games and improved compatibility with more games and that's all the PSgroove hermes v1,2,3 etc refer to.
Ok thank you for the response is there somewhere i can get the payloads from i really dont need to run it with no disc at the expense of low compatibility. And all i would have to do is implement the psgroove into the Tennsy board? is that how it would work?
About the compatibility part...I'm pretty sure Hermes' latest payload (which just got released yesterday/day before) and the latest OpenManager makes up for the compatibility lost due to the disk-less update so you're best off sticking to the latest updates.
Also in regards to the Teensy board. You just need to download the ATMEL Flip programmer (it's a program from Windows which lets you program your Teensy board), grab the latest HEX files from the forum (there should be a sticky which has the latest files) and put it on. That will allow your Teensy board to 'hack' the PS3 and then you can proceed with installing other pkg files like the Open Manager, SNES emulator, FTP client etc.
