    UPDATE: Tons of updates at end of post. This is it ladies and gentleman, the moment you have been all waiting for, cancel your pre-orders and start your engines - the PSJailbreak open source, free scene solution is out - PSGroove!

    Now we can make our OWN PSJailbreak clone, and I am glad to say at a very cheap price :) . All you need is either a Teensy++ USB Development Board or AT90USBKEY, and follow

    If you plan on ordering a Teensy++ know that it has shortages and even more quite soon:

    Update, Tuesday, Aug 31, 5:41 PM: We have received a higher than usual volume of orders for this item, and we’re working to ship orders as quickly as possible. Current wait time is approximately 2 days. As of Tuesday 5:41PM these boards ARE IN STOCK. We have enough inventory to fill all pending orders! If we do run out due to high demand, we expect to have more available in approximately 2 weeks, and we will fill any backorders in the order they were received. If you want one of these boards, your best bet is to place an order now. Please understand PJRC is a small company and we are currently running about 2 days to fill orders, though we’re hoping to fully catch up soon!

    From the readme of PSGroove:

    This is the PSGroove, an open-source reimplementation of the psjailbreak exploit for AT90USB and related microcontrollers.

    It should work on:

    * AT90USB162
    * AT90USB646
    * AT90USB647
    * AT90USB1286
    * AT90USB1287
    * ATMEGA32U4

    … and maybe more.

    This software is not intended to enable piracy, and such features have been disabled. This software is intended to allow the execution of unsigned third-party apps and games on the PS3.

    PSGroove Git Repository can be found here (contains all the files you need and everything to get started + download):

    Yesterday, we reported that Mathieulh and his team successfully cloned PSJailbreak, however he said he would not be releasing anything soon. Well according to his Twitter posts, and some questions asked at MaxConsole it seems that the PSJailbreak code MAY be released next week, and it can easily be flashed even by an “idiot”.

    To quote:

    We shot over Mathiuelh some questions about the activities of his group following various teasers that the team will release the exploit powering PSJailbreak. He indicated that the code could be ‘probably’ be released next week although the team doesn’t wish to be binded by any ETA due to the public pressure that amounts. Elsehere he confirmed that they will be providing the code to easily flash onto ‘Teensy’ boards and the ‘average idiot/dummy’ will be capable of making their own

    If Mathieulh and his team do release the code in the future, then we may be very well able to clone PSJailbreak ourselves with one of the following:

    • Teensy ++ USB Development Board ($24)
    • AT90USBKEY [US or UK] ($31 / £23)

    Feel free to post links to other places to purchase the Teensy/AT90 and we will keep the list updated here for different regions.

    The folks from Logic-Sunrise have posted a video it seems of x3Jailbreak in action, but we are going to admit, the video is cheesy, horrible music, and looks pretty dodgy.

    To quote (translated):

    Once again, X3jailbreak reconsiders the front of the carpet, with this blow a video exclusive for Logic Sunrise. It presents the operation of X3 with a play. The TEAM X3 specifies us that it enormously received email of request for this video, it was thus made quickly, but from others more precise will always arrive thereafter, which will present for example the finished product, of exclusiveness LS.

    Currently it is the prototype dongle which is presented (black) but the version aluminium will be the final, this is why it does not have there a leds with the dongle, contrary to what will be sent in final version.

    The video:

    The following article was posted over at Maxconsole on “5 reasons why PSJailbreak could win in court and why Sony will lose even if they win”. The new court date has been set to September 3rd @ 10 AM.

    To quote:

    With the court case pertaining to PSJailbreak being delayed until September 3rd, Maxconsole has taken the time to reflect on possible reasons why the device could very well triumph in court. Few people are truly optimistic that this device could win against the brains of the costly Sony legal team, although we have reason to believe otherwise. Moreover, regardless of the result, Sony would have actually lost from a market-perspective as explained below.

    First things first, these are the possible arguments that PSJailbreak retailers could exercise:

    No copyright code upon shipping – The makers have allegedly claimed that the device contains no copyright code upon shipping. If true, this means that the device is actually legal in its original form without consideration to the intent of the device.

    Even Sony knows people want and value homebrew – To a number of pessimists, the ‘homebrew’ argument is flawed because a lot of people will use such a device for piracy. However, one must question that if homebrew was such a limited occurrence, why did Sony included OtherOS functionality on the PS3 as standard?

    Reinstating OtherOS – As many of you are aware, OtherOS was part of the core-feature set of early PS3’s. However, since Geohot’s various claims, Sony backtracked and removed the OtherOS functionality. This actually restricted the freedom that users have on their PS3 console. With PSJailbreak, the makers can rightfully arguing that they are trying to re-instate a similar function to what Sony initially offered.

    Only allows you to play back-ups of disc you possess – The PSJailbreak only allows users to backup game discs that they already own. It has not been designed for use with ‘internet ISO’s’ at the moment. Yes there are a lot of possible ramifications as this, such as users ‘copying’ friends discs and rented discs, although the fact remains the device is doing it all can to ensure legitimate back-up use. Discs can become lost, scratched and so forth, why shouldn’t users be allowed to install games to HDD? The benefits of HDD installs are also recognized by console manufacturers themselves despite needing the disc for verification. It is a known fact that smoother experiences await, even the producer of GT 5 revealed this himself recently.

    The PS3 has no problem copying illegally downloaded movies to HDD - For video files, including the highly pirated DivX format, the PS3 allows owners to install and copy films directly to the hard drive. These movies can be illegally downloaded and include some of the hottest blockbusters. Would it be fair if the movie industry ‘banned’ the PS3 because it allows people to copy and playback downloaded movie files? Of course it wouldn’t, although the PS3 does allow this. Ultimately, it is the end user who decides the most reasonable course of action with a codec or software. Some will legitimately copy their games to HDD; some will legitimately run homebrew, why should these people be punished because of the fears of game piracy?

    Over-riding all the above, is the ability of the defendants to create a compelling and reasoned argument. All evidence surrounding PSJailbreak has been fixated upon ‘backups’ with little else to show thus far.

    Whatever the result, it’s still a lose-lose situation for Sony

    Although, whatever the outcome, it does seem like a lose-lose situation for Sony. PSJailbreak is ‘out there’ and being cloned, people will figure out how to update it. Despite all the ‘reports’, Sony must really ask themselves if they are fanning the flames and bringing validity to something which was always intended to stay ‘underground’. Those purchasers of PSJailbreak who intend to be pirates are not the kind of customer who would NEVER put a penny in the pocket of software developers (we don’t care what b***** estimates by researchers state). Just because the pirate may have 50 games on his HDD, it doesn’t mean that he ever intended to purchase more than 1 or 2 of those if any. At least this way, Sony is making money off of potential PS3 hardware sales spurred by PSJailbreak. It still isn’t right, although the Xbox 360 seems to be doing pretty well for itself despite its piratability (my new word). MS has done the right thing in keeping their head down and fighting back with their technical know-how, making things as uncomfortable as possible for pirates so that they actually think twice about whether the pain is worth the pleasure.

    The way Sony is handling the situation is evidently poor. Everywhere you look the mainstream is talking about PSJailbreak, Sony read the headlines and sh*t themselves un-necessarily. Trade publications, news corporations amongst others are now regularly talking about something that was previously considered for the ‘scene only’. Sony’s constant involvement in this is just making it higher profile and raising awareness about the possibility to hack the PS3. A cloned solution will come, a free solution will come and Sony would have just been sucked in and played a part potentially building up a mainstream legion of pirates.

    Everything so far seems to be a poorly thought knee-jerk reaction; the sudden removal of OtherOS and they way they are acting right now just goes to show how they have limited faith in their technical abilities. Unfortunately for them, their technical abilities will be needed more than ever for the cat and mouse game that is about to ensue.

    Today was the court day in Australia for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited & Anor v Ozmodchips Pty Ltd & Ors.

    The hearing today was supposed to be about the current active injunction (that was set earlier by court), and Sony was supposed to either extend the injunction on prove that PSJailbreak contained copyright Sony code (which we discovered it did not). If Sony had failed to prove this, then OZModchips and other Australian resellers could start selling PSJailbreak again.

    However the court case was pushed to Friday as the Judge was busy, so it seems the scene has to wait a few more days to see the verdict.

    Esteemed PSP/PS3 reverse engineer Mathieulh, has stated via his twitter that a member of his team has successfully cloned the PS3 Jailbreak device:

    Someone from our group just successfully cloned the psjailbreak dongle. Going to improve the shell code soon.

    Mathieulh also stated this too:

    We are not releasing anything, we didn’t just rip things off, we know how it works ,the clone is just a POC, we plan on documenting

    The folks over at PSX-SCENE were contacted by the PSJailbreak team today with a few updates. The team plans to launch Backup Manager v1.1 which will include new features and tweaks. They also wanted to clarify that the delay of the product was not delayed because of shortage, but rather they were finishing their retail packaging and finalizing the new software.

    They also have responded to the court case in Australia and are providing financial aid to their dealers/distributors (have already sent a donation to OzMods and Quantronics).

    Thanks to Pocket69 for heads up.

    Another PSJailbreak clone is “on the street”, this one known as PS3Key. Their product is yet to have a release date or price, but they did update their facebook with the following update:

    Good news everyone! Our mad scientist has confirmed that getting into the console is as simple as pretending to be a USB hub! It doesn’t look like this is going to take any more than a few weeks!

    So what does this mean? Disane has summed it up below:

    This is the disassembled PPC code more like the shell code that is being injected. The best way would be to use the lv2 dump and this to figure out how the stack overflow exploit works in the USB buffer of the PS3 after that it can be reproduced on any FW. On both slim and fat PS3s.

    The JIG ID is probably passed to trigger some code pathern which the Configuration Descriptor overflows and injects the shell code after that the code gets executed. The shell code patches lv2 to run fselfs and all kinds of interesting flags which I haven’t noticed yet…

    Consolewinkel.nl has spoken to the PSJailbreak creators and they basically told them that PSJailbreak is legal and it contains no copyright code - meaning OZmodchips and other retailers have a pretty good case against Sony in the next few days.

    To quote:

    PSjailbreak is legal and contains no copyright code, that’s what the makers of the device are claiming. In a conversation forwarded to us, a Dutch retailer reveals that the creators of the device are insisting that Sony is just using ‘scare tactics’ to try and make people think twice before selling it. Moreover the creators are claiming that the device was primarily produced for homebrew on the PS3 console.

    Yesterday we posted here , that Sony has imposed an injunction against the sale and distribution, of the PS Jailbreak device in Australia, today both OzMods and Quantronics have responded to this.

    OzMods via their website:

    Hello Everyone. On Friday the 27/08/2010 we where given some documents from the Lawyers representing Sony. The documents are Federal Court orders for a temporary injunction.

    The Injunction states that from 24 hours of receiving the documents to the 31st of August OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier and anyone else in Australia:

    * Give up all stock in our possession, including our sample

    I guess it was lucky that the device was delayed by a couple of days. While many people that have received their sample and sent it off to cloners….we sent ours to a well known homebrew developer. The developer we picked showed us various homebrew applications that he had already developed for ps3 dev units, that he wants to port over to retail units. Yes, PS3 homebrew is real and will start flowing through at a steady rate as soon as next week.

    * Give up any stock we get between now and the 31st

    We are not getting any between these times

    * Ozmodchips also cannot:
    o Import
    o distribute
    o Offer
    o provide
    o or deal with PS Jailbreak devices

    These are from the Federal Court of Australia.

    All 3 Australian stores we appear in court in some form on the 31st of August. On the 31st the court will decide if there will be a continuation of the “ban” or if we are allowed to sell them.

    Our views are the same as Quantronics who posted this info here. This is not OzModChips Vs Sony. This is not OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier Vs Sony. We would go as far as saying that is not even everyone in Australia Vs Sony. This will effect everyone that plans to buy such a device world wide. It already sets a dangerous precedent. Everyone that was using OtherOS, everyone that has had a faulty PS3 laser….and those interested in PS3 custom firmware and homebrew applications. We cannot do it alone, we need the support of everyone the homebrew community, the media, engineers that understand the inner workings and anyone else that can provide support.

    Regarding orders:

    If the injunction becomes permanent we will refund everyone that has ordered from us. If it doesn’t then we will send all orders as originally planned. There will be no delay to the planned shipping date. We would ask everyone to wait until then. We have the money sitting in our account which will cover 100% refunds for everyone if that needs to happen. We kindly ask everyone to just hold off until the 31st, as we need all the time we can to prepare.

    Thank you for your support!

    Quantronics via PSX Scene:

    The order is for a continuation of the current emergency injunction that was granted yesterday.

    The injunction is baseless, and is very unlikely that it will be continued or become permanent.

    This makes absolutely no difference to those that have pre-orders as none of us will be receiving stock until the end of the week/next week anyway.

    OMC, Modsupplier and myself are all close friends, share lawyers and have sought senior counsel for this matter.

    We started in this industry as kids with a thought towards changing the countries views on copyright law, fair use and freedom.

    TO THIS DAY, we stand for the same beliefs, values and will at ANY COST fight for what we believe in, the rights we should have and in a david vs goliath battle, we will give it our best.

    Obviously now that the information is out, you will receive information straight from the horses mouth, as it were, and will know that we are the same as when we started, in my case 1998, someone who believes in the right to freedom.

    Thanks to hailfire101 via Twitter and jaaSUmbra via IRC, for bringing this to my attention

    EDIT:
    jedix from IRC posted this quite interesting link, it speaks of the legality of mod chips in Australia, here is the important bit quoted.

    Mod chips are actually legal in Australia, on something of a technicality: by the time a mod chip allows a pirated game to be played, the copyright violation has already occurred. It’s the act of distributing or copying games that courts are worried about; without the content, the chips themselves are useless. In the US and much of Europe, the act of circumventing protection measures is itself illegal, making it easier to keep circumvention technology away from the public.

    This is a temporary injunction, but since this device allows the games themselves to be copied—much like mod chips from the Xbox-era— judges may not be so forgiving. The USB sticks don’t just allow pirated games to be played, they give you the ability to copy the games yourself.

    Sony has until August 31 to make its case for the continued ban against the sale of the devices. If they’re not able to make a compelling legal argument, the PS Jailbreak should be offered for sale yet again… although one could forgive Sony for dragging its feet in releasing the inventory.

    The clones just keep rolling in. Today on PSX-Scene, one of their members announced a new clone in the works known as PS3Stinger, promising a cheap alternative and to not “sting” you with a high price. While we must admit it does sound fishy, we urge our members to not go and buy their product until there is solid evidence that it is indeed a legitimate source.

    They currently do not have a website (in the works), but do have a twitter page, and one tweet:

    Just for reference and will change next week once the pcb’s are ready.

    PS3Stinger is expected to ship around September 15. When asked about the prices this is the email sent:

    Hi,

    Thanks for the mail, Price depends on quantity 50-100 pieces is Euro35 stock ready to ship around 15th Sept (Pcb’s ready next week so maybe a bit sooner). Exactly the same as the jailbreak as its a direct clone. Difference with dealing with us is fast replies and we won’t screw our customers on price, Also can do fast overnight shipping via Fedex to the US. Some of the guys we are dealing with already are allsystemsgo.nl /Consolepro.nl and loads of the UK sellers including wii-chip.co.uk/ 360upgrades.co.uk so lots of people to vouch that we are legit as well.

    Thanks
    Phil on twitter aka ps3stinger

    We will keep you posted on any updates.

    German website GameFreax has claimed to have successfully reverse engineered PS Jailbreak. They bring out some important information that was previously unknown. First off, PSJailbreak was apparently NOT a clone of Sony’s JIG, instead its a legitimate exploit that was developed. Second, we can NOT upgrade PSJailbreak without the use of additional hardware - maybe the company planned to sell another component to upgrade the unit?

    Here is the translated post:

    We have taken a closer look at this PSJailbreak dongle
    We can confirm that the PSJailbreak is not a clone of Sony’s “Jig” module. PSJailbreak is a self-developed exploit. The chip is not a PIC18F444 but a ATMega is used with a software USB interface. This means the chip is internally capable of emulating any USB device. PSJailbreak emulates a 6 Port USB hub on which different devices will later be connected and then disconnected. One of these devices has the product:vendor ID of Sony’s “Jig” module, which means this had played a certain role during the development of PSJailbreak role.

    But lets start from beginning: When the PS3 is powered on … A USB emulation device will be connected, which has a too large of a Configuration Descriptor. This Descriptor overrides the stack with a PowerPC shellcode that gets executed. Now, various USB devices are connected to the emulation USB hub. One device has a large Descriptor with a size of 0xAD, which is part of the exploit and contains static data. A short time later (we are talking milliseconds here) the jig module is connected, and encrypted data is transmitted to the jig module. A few milliseconds later, the Jig module answers with 64 byte static data, all USB devices are then disconnected, and a new USB device is connected and the PS3 launches with ‘a new feature’.

    PSJailbreak is NOT software update-able. The Update feature which is mentioned, can be done just with hardware modifications. So by ‘update’ they mean ‘buy more of our stuff’

    64Byte static data that is emulated by Jig sent to the PS3

    PS3Jailbreak.com has discovered a banner on on the official PSJailbreak website for a product called “Titan Jailbreak”



    While we are purely speculating at this point, it seems that Titan Jailbreak very well be the official clone to PSJailbreak, with cheaper components in part to help with the high demand and shortages. Of course, it could also have been the previous name of their product, and just never quite made it to the finish line :)

    A similar “Titan” wording can be found on the Authorized Dealer too:



    What do you guys think it is?
