confirmed working

watch out for clones only buy from this website at the moment

its a dongle you just plug and play

all ps3 versions it works on

NOW FOR THE LONG PART

Well the world's first PS3 modchip is here the PS Jailbreak, it comes in the form of a little USB dongle which means there is no opening up the console, no soldering and install is a breeze. This little dongle will give you the ability to run 3rd party applications on your PS3 console, make backups of your original games onto your existing PS3 hard drive and also external USB ones and even USB flash drives. The PS Jailbreak PS3 mod chip is compatible with all PS3 consoles, that's right from the old 60GB phat models right through to the new PS3 slim consoles. Now you will be able to put your whole collection of original PS3 titles onto your hard drive and experience at least twice the speed of loading and no longer have to worry about scratched discs. Another bonus about the PS Jailbreak PS3 modchip is the fact that you can really extend your PS3's lasers life by using the hard drive to load your games from. Another really big feature of this product is the fact it will now open the door to being able to load homebrew applications on your PS3, we will see the birth of Media Players, even web browsers and much much more for the PS3, the PS Jailbreak modchip opens the doors to massive possibilities with the PS3 console that was just not possible before.

The PS Jailbreak PS3 mod chip has a piece of homebrew software that you load up and will create backups of your original games onto the hard drive, be it the internal one in your console or an external USB one you can hook up, being the PS3 hard drives are quite small the feature of being able to use an external hard drive is great, because you can get a 3.5" 1TB drive quite cheap these days and this would be the best way to go, this will leave your internal hard drive for normal use and once again won't wear it out. This little homebrew backup manager program is extremely easy to use and fast, the speed that it can backup most games is amazing, some games can be done in a matter of minutes while others can take an hour, it all depends on the size of the game. The interface for the backup manager is nice and we are sure they will improve upon it over he coming months.

Note that your PS3 console will need to be updated to 3.41 for the PS Jailbreak PS3 modchip to function correctly, they have been optimized for this firmware version and if you are not running it you should either update your PS3 online or go to the Sony website and download their 3.41 firmware onto a USB flash drive and update your console. The best way would be to use the USB flash drive as it's quite fast. Running the PS Jailbreak PS3 mod chip on an earlier firmware can cause erratic behaviour, for example our test machine here would not boot with the dongle plugged in until we updated to the latest 3.41 firmware. Another thing to remember when using the PS Jailbreak is that to play your games off the hard drive you will need to leave one of your original games in the console, not a big problem but just something to remember. The official PS Jailbreak website will have full manuals for using the device, as well as firmware updates and troubleshooting guides.

Something else that has been promised is the PS Jailbreak mod chip will be firmware updateable, so not only will there be updates to their backup manager homebrew software, but there will be core updates for the PS Jailbreak device itself, this ensures that bugs found can be addressed in a firmware update for the dongle device itself. The PS Jailbreak will disable your console from doing automatic updates after installed, this is to prevent any newer firmwares released for the console that could interfere with the way the product works.

While the PS Jailbreak PS3 modchip does allow you to make backups of your original Bluray PS3 games and launch 3rd party applications, it does not allow you to make backups of bluray movies, dvd movies or past Playstation games such as 1 & 2, but with saying that all that most of us want is to be able to take advantage of the homebrew software that will be developed that this device can boot and to make legitimate backups of all our original games onto a hard drive for ease of loading and storage, no more scatted game covers everywhere, no more will the kids scratch and wreak valuable original game discs, and the life of the consoles laser will be significantly increased, as we all know PS3 lasers aren't cheap especially on the old 60GB units, so there is so many positives to the new PS Jailbreak PS3 modchip and sure more to come with the PS3 homebrew community.

Though i would personally hold out for a few weeks, Sony are normally all over the hacks on the ps3, (for example the removal of the other OS installation option) So theres a good chance it will be blocked soon, and you will end up with just an expensive thumbdrive.

Also apparently it exploits the PS3 Debug mode... so expect a new firmware soon!

no mate with the psjailbreaker you dont have to update to the next firmwares to play online still, it skips them if you want

The USB boots the PS3 (Any PS3 retail ones) into thinking it is a debug.
