Title: Buildign a XIM for PS3 - questions
Post by: pontifex on 05:24 PM - 05/19/10
I ordered the components to build a XIM for PS3. I just received the Toolstick today and I can't find the flash utility to flash the toolstick with the firmware. The link on OBSIV's site doesn't work but I found the software download page on their site. I don't know which software to download. Here is the link to the download site: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/SoftwareDownloads.aspx?cm_sp=%3CWebParts%3E-_-%3CMCUSupport%3E-_-%3CSWDownloads%3E

which should I use?

oh, as an FYI, my toolstick came enclosed in a clear plastic shell.

Edit: I downloaded 3 files (flash programming, toolstick sdk, and mcu ide) to see what they were and I found that the flash programming utility matched what the directions listed.

So i followed the directions on the page here: http://obsiv.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!948789BF56FAF394!282.entry

When I clicked disconnect at the end, the lights never went out. is that good or bad?

I have the XIM config thing and the "testing" thing (the one that shows the controller and the movements of your mouse and keyboard in relation to the controller). it works fine when the toolstick is unplugged, but when I plug in the toolstick and run the "tester", it doesn't work, it just seems to hang my PC. I have to hit ctrl-alt-del to be able to close the window.
