ATMega16A Payload Injector Project
ATMega16A Payload Injector Project –
Alot of people that have bought the original PSJailbreak, or the various cheap clones, have been left in the dark with the old basic first public release of PSGroove that the cloners had burned into their ATMega16A chips that been widely used in the dongles that have been sold!
But of course with no bootloader burned in for future use, you can't update them to support the latest and greatest of the new payloads that have appeared like the Hermes V4b, and the very useful PL3 versions!
Along comes ATMega16A Payload Injector Project which originally started out as forum thread on Elotrolado, the very active Spanish site, with lots of good talented PS3 Developers!
So far on their website, they have lots of details on how to build your own programmer, plus they have designed a "Payload Injector" (which needs NETv3.0 framework), so that you can easy update the device, to flash a new payload.
They are hard at work also in figuring out a way to add a "BootLoader", so will need to only wired up a programmer once, and then any time update the device later when a new wonderful "Payload" comes out!

Been using this awesome app a few days now and confirm it works.
Btw, no PL3 support yet, only hermes payload.
I can make a bootloadhid bootloader for you guys if you add a jumper to it. just need a guy to volunteer for testing.
I'm the one who developed that app and was taking a look at the sources for the ATMega168 someone posted earlier, but i'm a n00b at AVR programming so it's more like trial and error :\
I have all the tools and several dongles ready to die for a good cause
Would it be possible to use any of the pins we used to flash the dongle for the jumper (MISO, MOSI, etc...) ? That way the non-skilled people would not have a bad time soldering in those tiny pins.
I really appreciatte your help mate.

I can do some testing. Just threw a PC together because my desktop doesn`t have an LPT connection and I needed one for my Dr.v64Jr. Would be glad to give you a hand ...and I have a bunch of ATMEGA16A clones around.
ask these spanish guys to do the same with the ps3key please :-)
No, you cant use any pins. If you cant solder you should buy another one or have a friend help you. Right now the dongles are so cheap I don't see a point in fixing these unless you already have the experience, parts and tools.
i can solder, i was just saying that so people who can't could use some of the pins already used to reflash it
what chip does it have inside ?

I dont see how this is usefull.To make unupgradeable devices upgradeable you need to solder and need a programmer.If you can do all that you can add the bootloader from the programmer which makes the device upgradeable.This program wont make unupgradeable devices to be upgradeable like a miracle.
