Help .. Olimex AVR-USB-162 Dev Board
Help .. Olimex AVR-USB-162 Dev Board –
Basically my Olimex dropped through the door yesterday, great .. Well it would be but for some reason, my PS3 isn't running the exploit. So here's what I have done and tried so far, if after reading anybody has any ideas or indeed has the same board, can you let me know how and what you did.
Basically, the Olimex board is a little on the large side, buy hey due to the shortages of these boards I was happy to get one yesterday. Anyway I opened the box, only to find no manual .. So I gathered as much info from this site and a few others as I could find.
Eventually, I hooked up the Olimex board to my PC, and straight away noticed that the red led was constantly flashing, and that Windows wouldn't see the device at all (XP) .. Of course not having any manual or instructions on how the board works, I stumbled across the fact that if you press the RST (Reset) button followed by the BUT (Button) this would in fact then cause the PC to auto find the device, and prompt for the windows .inf file. Which again I searched high and low for on the net only to find the .inf file was in the Flip program folder under USB. Finally the device was found within windows... great ...
I loaded Flip and selected the correct model for the chipset, and then proceeded to flash the eprom with the correct hex file. Once this was done, the what was red blinking led has now gone off, and doesn't flash at all .. This is fine though as I think it means the board is ready ...
The whole process to flash the eprom took what a second or so, and Flip came back and checked, and passed the entire, erase / flash /verify process and I could see that hex file had been programmed as by the hex name it was PSGroove..
Quickly rused downstairs to try this out on my old Fat PS3, and cycled the power and plugged the dev board into the first port on my ps3, and turned the ps3 on and quickly pressed Eject and nothing, now .. my ethernet cable is still in, so maybe I need to take this out .. as when I power the PS3 up the system is reporting an update is available ... i'm on 3.41 ... so tonight i'm going to pull the cable and see if this makes any difference ..
Also because the LED is off, it is very hard knowing if the exploit is doing anything, does anybody that has the same board, please report back on this thread and let me know if the LED has or does come back on since you have programmed the hex code ...
Also the hex file I used was for the right board and is 12k, does that sound right?? I know this board can be used for the explot, and I must of zapped the hex file on about 4 - 5 times, and even tried another hex I was sent which was for the same board but still nothing ... I'm just wondering if the fact that the network cable was still in, was something to do with it ..
Any advice would be appreciated, as the hard part is done, or maybe I should make my own hex to be sure ..
Are you positive you used the right hex file? My hex file for that board is 32k in size
I have a working psgroove.hex for the OLiMEX AVR-USB-162, i've just tried to post it attached to a new thread, i guess its been censored as i'm a newly subscribed.
I'll try again later =)
p.s. my .hex is 32kb so maybe your isn't compiled properly
I got one of these boards myself and got it working about an hour ago. You have the wrong hex, it should be 32k.

This is my hex file that i have compiled for this board, it's backup enabled and has the LED update:
can you confirm that this hex is working?
