PSGrooPIC Customization and code compilation
PSGrooPIC Customization and code compilation –
For all those people who want to DIY a PSGroopic , meaning who want to build a PIC18Fx550 based dongle all by themselves or want to have a hex file for different crytals frequencies, or want to customize the LED pin, I have uploaded a complete tutorial at the following link.
I could have posted it here, but the tutorial contains too many pictures and html code, therefore, for all practical purposes it is better where it is, unless someone from here could post the entire blog here.
PSGrooPIC HEX Problems - Help!
PSGrooPIC HEX Problems - Help! –
Can anyone point me in the right direction of a working hex for my purchased PIC18F4550 board? I have PSGrooPIC V1.3 (PSGrooPICV1.3_BTL_Firmware.hex) installed and it's working fine but can't update the device to later versions to use OM V1.3 / 1.4.
Not very technical and the amount of Hex files out there is mindbending. I have tried flashing a couple of different Hex but none will flash successfully. The board I bought has no LED's just a 16Mhz Oscillator, an 18F4550 and the button to press when connecting to PC. I also used PICDEM FS USB Demo to flash the board, but really don't want to break/brick this thing by installing the wrong hex.
Do i need later version of PSGrooPIC or will V1.3 support OM 1.13 or higher? Any help is much appreciated folks!
The reason that none of the hex files will work on your board is that, it uses a 16MHZ crystal, while people here are using 8MHZ,12MHZ and 20MHZ crystals.
Personally I would think that 1.3 is good enough, however before I decide to compile one 16Mhz hex file, let me know on which pin of 18F4550 is the bootloader button connected to.
Meanwhile I would suggest you to visit the step by step guide, whose link I have already posted in my previous post,and spend some time reading it. Unless you do something very unwise, or flash the board with a non-BTL hex file, there is no way you could brick the dongle.
Thanks PS3Linux, I did read your guide but this key uses PIC18F4550-I/PT on a PCB not a Varo board and the connections are almost impossible to see. Through the back of the board under the chip it looks like the bootloader button is connected to the third pin from the bottom on the right of the chip. I can't find a guide for this chip so can't give you the pin number. If you think v1.3 should be enough to get OM 1.13 etc. loaded, it should be OK though. Thanks for the offer and i'd appreciate any hex you can compile for me but not sure if i've given you enough info...!

I'll try and upload a 16MHZ hex file sometime you could give it a try, after dumping your firmware. I think if you post a picture of your board along manufacturer name that will pinpoint to the type of connections on your board.

Your hex from this thread:

worked perfectly with my sparkfun USB bit whacker on PS3 fw 3.15. I was able to finally jailbreak after waiting and waiting. Thank you very much!!!
I have not tested any games yet.
I tried this file on my USB Bit Whacker and it keep showing "Unknown USB Device Detected" but it is working correctly. Do you get the same thing coming up?
