Don't worry about the lights, mines working flawless now since I got my new console through the morning, I think the comment on the lights is based on an LED hex file that can be programmed onto the board and nothing to do with PSGroove.

Sports champions is listed in the compatibility list as working on both internal and external drives perfectly.. so I have no idea about that. Anyone any ideas?
And yeah.. don't worry about LEDs. If it works, who cares :)
When mine boots both Red and Green are on, the the red one goes out.

Just curious as I thought the done thing was to disable internet access while running the JB
Yeah mine worked fine with the psgroove_backups.hex loaded into it (green light only), then you got me all worried saying you were having issues so I loaded the teensy hex file into it and that works fine too.

Trolling through the site can a bit of a informaion overload so having this tutorial was great, Thanks danieljamie69
Thanks Dan!! Too easy. Only issue i had was FW was at 3.40, lol could have sworn i had 3.41 installed.
Anywayz after a few tries worked out the FW issue and updated to 3.41.
Also for people looking for different hex files. I have tested both and they work. Link below
Please delete if i am not allowed to post this. I didnt want to just link the files since he took the time to post them. Lights all work on these
Just scroll down to Sniffynose post. He has posted links to the hex files. On this site.----
-Psgroove 1.1 Maximus Board (LED Patched, Red while hacking, Green when done)
-Psgroove 1.1 Maximus Board (Hermes Build with same LED Patch as above)
-Psgroove 1.1 Minimus Board (LED Patched, Green = Power on, Red = Hacking, Blue = Finished)
-Psgroove 1.1 Minimus Board (Hermes Build with same LED Patch as above)
-Maximus LEDs.h file, so you can use the patch in your own future builds.
-Minimus LEDs.h file, again for use in your own builds.
Still any solution to playing games higher than 3.41? I know in the future there might be a way, but what file manager program are you talking about and did it work for you with Tiger Woods?
Internet connected does not matter. Whilst on fw 3.41, sony will not allow the sign in to playstation network anyway.
Keep psgroove v1, backup manager v1. No need to upgrade it until something big comes out (like service mode?)
I haven't personally tried running a game that needs a higher firmware. I just read somewhere on here that the bypass is to edit the param.sfo file.. Maybe someone else can enlighten us on this :)
Check the downloads section for file managers / ftp programs. Also, may be info on ps3hax regarding playing games requiring higher fw.
If anyone can try loading these games.. let me know and I can update this tutorial...
Got it thanks.

THANK YOU! this is exactly what i was hoping to find. a quick, easy, step-by-step guide with download links included. its well written and im sure i wont have any trouble with this, thanks to this tut.
the only question i have as of now is about the psgrooves... whats the difference between 1.0 and 1.1? and what is this Hermes thing? I know all this has been on the front of this site. but between all the stuff thats coming out everyday, and being kinda busy now in my own life, i cant keep track! lol.
thanks again dude!
oh.. one other question; when you put backup manager pkg file on a usb flash drive, do you leave the minimus in the ps3 and use the other usb port for the flash drive? or do you remove minimus, then put the flash drive in and install the pkg? and installing that .pkg, is that a one-time deal?
What! Someone who searches? You're welcome here anytime mate.

as far as my other question regarding backup manager, after more searching, i think ive got it figured out. the pkg file goes on a usb stick, and once you boot your ps3 with the minimus, you can remove it, or leave it in. doesnt matter. either way, you put your usb stick in the ps3 and install the pkg file. then thats it. you dont need to do that again. same goes with other pkg's, like the ftp server and all that.
is this correct? again, i appreciate your help and suggestions.
