Hex for Hermes v4b, 3.55 spoof with LED Fade
Hex for Hermes v4b, 3.55 spoof with LED Fade –
A few other posters here, sniffy, djlo, have had success with modifying the LED part of the hex code to make the leds fade off after say 30 seconds once your jailbreak is successful.
I have the X3Max dongle which can take any hex but so far I have not been able to find one that gives me what I want from the LEDs. I spent two hours last night with no success. Would anyone be able to modify the attached,

or create one that would ideally;
Flash both LEDs whilst jailbreaking
Solid blue once successful
Solid red if failed
Fade off after 30 seconds
Currently using one originally for the maximus, Hermers V4b with 3.55 SPOOF on a 3.41 Phat PS3.
Many thanks in advance for any help.
So, the time constant for a particular capacitor-resistor in series is t = R x C.
If you are not sure what the resistance is (sometimes the resistor is built in to the LED), then you can measure the voltage and current between the LED and common, and calculate it with Ohm's Law.
Figure that you want the LED to charge up for at least 3 time constants to achieve some good brightness, then remain on for a time before the LED turns off and the next one turns on, so I'd say that you would want a time constant that's between 5% and 10% of the duration that the LED is turned on, but you may want to make it longer depending on how cool you want it to look.
Another thing that you need to consider is the bias voltage that the LED requires before it turns on. This will delay the LED from turning on immediately, but since the LED before it will also take longer to shut off, it won't be very noticeable.
