Compatible with all current p3free [=PIC18Fxxxx(2455/2550/4455/4500)-12Mhz-ledG.A1.ledR.B1-USBHIDC18.Bootloader-MCLRE-noLVP] devices.
If you have the 'F' version or messed up your bootloader then you need to install the usbhid bootloader on your device.
Attached is the P3Free bootloader hex file (Bootloader_USBHIDC18_P3Free_V1.0_12MHz_BTL-pin1_MCLRon_LVPoff_F0_Version.hex) which reflects the 'F0' firmware.
You need to hardflash this hex file by using a pic programmer. See hardflash instructions here
After installing the bootloader continue with the hex of choice using softflash (usb).
Latest hex files
For softflash (usb upgrade) use the P3Free Updater. It contains the latest hex files, so no need to download them unless the tool is out of sync with the latest available hex files.
iLLNESS is now the main source for fully P3Free compatible hex files, see this post (iLLNESS's PSGrooPIC Hexes and Information Thread) for the latest and future updates
