if you can't wait, just use the HIDBootLoader-26b.exe to do it.
any chance of schematic for use with 18f4550
I think I have read every thread under P3Free and I'm still not positive about upgrading.
My order says I will get P3Free Kit (F0 firmware).
When I get my P3Free I am going to download and install:
Microsoft .Net Framework V4.0
Microsoft VC++ 2010* (x86)
Then run Microchip USB HID Bootloader and load this hex file:
P3FREE_V2.0_PIC Firmware [F2] for the [F1] P3FREE update only_[NOT NEED BD TO BOOT].rar (This is what I'm not positive about because I have F0, please confirm this is correct?)
Next I will download from the P3Free website and put them on a thumb drive:
Backup_Manager_V2-P3FREE.com.pkg (Is V2 the one I want for F0?)
Finally, I will put the P3Free into the PS3 and follow the P3FREE user guide (http://psx-scene.com/forums/f179/p3free-user-guide-66088/) During the guide it has me install Backup Manager V2.pkg and P3-FTP-Server.pkg. Now I should be able to go to BM and backup a game to the internal hard drive.
My last question is can you load a game without a BD with games stored on the internal hard drive? I am confused by these instructions:
 Backup one complete P3 game to your USB HD.
 Create one new folder /app_home/PS3_GAME in your USB HD root folder, then copy the "EBOOT.BIN" to there from your backup game folder : "\GAMEZ\XXXXXXXXX\PS3_GAME\USRDIR"
 Once use your P3FREE to open the P3, goto the manager V2 and press "X" to load the backup game. It'll back to menu automatic, then goto "/app_home/PS3_GAME" and wait a while, you will see the backup game in there and start to run!
These instructions talk about a USB hard drive.
Yes u can use can play backups.
