Hi All,

A few months back i bought a DECR-1010U from ebay, its the controller with the red charging led beneath the ps button.

Unfortunately it seems the firmware on it is incompatible with newer ps3 dev kit firmware. I've read that its possible to update the firmware on the controller using a tool that was distributed via sonys dev site but i cant seem to track it down.

Has anyone got a link to the files or are able to send upload it somewhere.

Thanks in advance

That tool never existed. Developers are told to purchase commercial controllers after the prototype controllers support has ended

That's a shame, thanks for letting me know though
