What are you doing on your side? I mean are you trying to find out how big this "first batch" is? No longer associating yourself with this fraudulent company?
they are trying to fulfill their contract. what is worse, endorsing a fraudulent product, or breaking a contract for false advertisement?

I know they probably didnt know, but they well & truly do now.
All they appear to be doing is telling us to be happy we have somewhere to complain & not to complain because we have an option to fix it by doubling the price of the thing.
Thats what is really pissing me off now.. Im used to dealing with clones and stuff from HK that alot of the time doesnt live up to its specs. Shit happens so to say.
But to continue endorsing a product whilst bagging out others in front page stories that are almost exactly the same (probably are the same) chip, is a joke.
I have asked them to offer refunds or replace any orders from the first batch with fully USB updatable product when it is available. Hopefully they do the right thing here.
Good idea! I knew something was fishy when patrick sent me a PM asking to send me one to review. It was the questions he was asking and how he has responded to me since that got me curious.

I jumped on this clone purely because of the PSXscene support of the product. No other reason.
It all looked as expected it would, until this whole BS scenario has come up. Tracking numbers don't turn up on the site and now already "oh, but we forgot about this....". It's a matter of time until the next "uhm, but this too..." comes down the pipe.
The next excerpt was written by none other than Garyopa himself about the ps3break and how people got screwed like he's so noble for pointing this out....just a bit hypocritical if u ask me...but thats just if you ask :-P
Nope, you could tell by inserting it into your PC, if it just shows up as "Generic USB hub", and does not appear as AT90USB when you push the NON-WORKING button, then it is one of the new cheaper versions.
The original PS3BREAK used the ATMEL chip, and the button did infact WORK, and when inserted in your PC if you press the button it would appear as an AT90USB chip which you can then easy flash using the FLIP software.
But the sad part is the owners have already got their crappy PIC one in the mail, when the website they ordered from stated they were ATMEL and UPGRADEABLE, their is NO real way to tell before you place your order!
And tell me how this is any different from the PS3Free debacle? Prolly the same crappy Pic chip as well. Because I have a port for the programmer? Whoopty do. Your reputation is now tarnished to everyone in this community now. How much was that worth from the p3Free guys? seriously, I'd like to know...
The different is the PS3BREAK owners, have no clear solution to there problem, no one even knew before they ripped the case off or plugged it into a computer.

There was no announce like that on any of the ps3break websites, just a change under the case, that's all, with the buyer or reseller totally unaware, of the major difference in it's operation.
I have personally spoken with "Patrick" and he promises to resolve this problem for all the people that have ordered or gotten a early version with by supplying them with a free PIC programmer as soon as possible.
But that's not good enough for "xiaNaix", he wants them to offer full refunds or total replacements with the boot-loader installed.
We will keep you posted and informed, as soon as we know and have more information, this is just of shock to me as it is to the buyers of P3FREE.
Free pic programmer is certainly a step in the right direction. I'm just tryin to comprehend why he wasted all the time to flash these things but did it without a bootloader. He claimed the bootloader wasn't quite ready yet but none of these clones are using unique code. Seems like a misstep more than absolute fraud but time will tell. Thanks for the quick reply, Gary.
It is, but not at the same time.
