• PS3 Hacks, PSN , 19.08.2010

    (Updates at end of post) As im sure you all know by now, the PS3 has seen a mountain load of fakes, earlier this year we had ZPack, which used a USB Dongle to let you play ISO’s on your console, it of course turned out to be another fake, now we have PS Jailbreak which uses a USB Dongle to give you back ups, here is a quote from their site:

    PS Jailbreak is a USB plug and play solution that installs in seconds, keeping your valid warranty seal in tact.

    Easy to use installer and GUI takes you step by step.

    Compatible with all production models FAT and SLIM. Supports all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA

    PS Jailbreak disables forced software updates and will never brick your console.

    Supports all games (it does not allow backups of bluray movies , dvd movies , or past consoles games)

    Backup games to your internal hard drive or external hard drive through USB, and boot directly off GUI. Eliminating the need for expensive blueray burners and costly blank media.

    Play backups off your hard drives 2x as fast as off the blueray drive. This eliminates lags and glitches to provide you with smoother game play.

    Open up your console to a new generation of homebrew applications. Load homebrew apps/games off any USB hard drive/flash drive.

    Fully updatable with new features/updates by connecting PS Jailbreak to any computers USB port.

    Not that im an expert at spelling, im far from it, but you would think that people who are knowledgeable enough to create such a device, could at least spell Blu Ray right.

    The FAQ section from their website:

    Q:Is PS Jailbreak easy to install?

    A:Yes, it is a plug and play solution. It takes 1 second to fully install, without modifying or opening your console.

    Q:Does it permanently modify my console?

    A:No of course not, once you unplug it from the usb port it is completely disabled.

    Q:How do you install PS Jailbreak?

    A:Please consult our downloads page for our instruction manual. We have done our best to make it as thorough as possible to answer all setup and troubleshooting issues.

    Q:What is the warranty?

    A:PS Jailbreak is sold with a 1 year warranty. All our resellers will take care of warranty issues.

    The only downloadable thing of their site, is this Back Up Manager

    Here is a link to their site:
    PS Jailbreak

    A site called PSX-SCENE, claim to be the first and only site that can confirm that this is working, here is a quote from their site:

    The first PS3 modchip has arrived and PSX-SCENE is the FIRST site to CONFIRM it is 100% REAL!!!

    PSX-SCENE is the first any ONLY website to CONFIRM that this product is working 100% Not by speculation but by being the only website to actually have testers with actual product in hand! We will have a video courtesy of OzModchips soon so stay tuned!!!

    I have been in contact directly with the manufacturer and can confirm some things you have all been asking about…

    1. FAT32 is currently supported. They are working on NTFS.

    2. They recommend staying on current firmware and not updating until they have deemed it safe. The dongle is fully updatable.

    3. Online play does work but they cannot guarantee that it will work with all future titles.

    4. Final retail units are ready to ship.

    5. Official reseller list will be on their site in the next 48 hours. You can pre-order from any of the official resellers. There are websites out there now claiming to be selling but they are not legitimate. Don’t get ripped off. Wait until the official list is posted.

    They posted a video:

    Here is a quote from Mathieulh:

    psjailbreak’s so called “Backup Manager” (which is pretty much the only thing available to download on their website) is a debug package including a regular fself compiled with the (massively privately leaked) 1.92 sdk, The package itself is generated with Sony’s official sdk tool (make_package_npdrm revision 1203 probably from that very same sdk) that makes it illegal to share because I am quite sure psjailbreak staff doesn’t have the appropriate license to be using the official Playstation 3 SDK and its tools. The binary itself seems to use the usual sce apis when it comes to the gui or copying files over. It does run on a debug console and displays a “nicely” done GUI that lets you “backup” your game to the external or usb hdd and “run” them later on. Needless to say the backups wont “run” as their “backup manager” is just a regular fself running with game privileges and doesn’t make use of any exploits that I can think of. Needless to say that if their so called usb dongle is real (which I doubt) it does extensive use of leaked sony’s software and keys/certificates.

    So the only question is it indeed real or fake.

    Source:
    Mathieulh’s Twitter

    Update 1:
    RichDevX has posted a patched version of the PKG Manager on his twitter, that allows backups to be ran for PS3 Debug users (you will need to decrypt selfs). As of now PSJailbreak does seem like the real deal, however we advise our members and readers to NOT purchase the USB dongle/device and that there will most likely be a FREE solution soon.

      Is FAKE because: 1 second time on install ? So many features from the start ? C mon, even on Slim 360 will take month to get a decent CFW.
      The only hope is Demonhades with the BD ROM.

      Ps3 IS NOT A IPHONE. The same joke like Belzar chip, remember ?

      Seems to be real, but with the sketchy scene of the PS3 it's hard to be certain.

      However OZModchips are selling this (reputable mod site) at $170 a pop:
      http://www.ozmodchips.com/ps-jailbre...play-p-68.html

      Here is another video:
      YouTube - Worlds second test of ps3 modchip, for all the Youtube plebs!

      Though I wouldn't pay $170 right away till we get some confirmations of this actually working, and you can bet there will be a free version of this soon enough.

      After all the fakes we have had, you simply expect us to bend over, pay $140 and expect it to be real?

      Oz are respected... but who's saying they are not just out to make 1 last big buck before retiring from the scene.?
      I highly doubt that, but maybe you can take the words of respectable PS3 devs who are confirming or starting to confirm it being real.

      Very odd news to come out of the blue however, so I can see why you would be skeptical.

      It wasn't actually a locked door, cause i'm sure the hackers cloned the jig module h/w and used it with their sw, so ps3 recognize the usb key like the sony hw itself, it's looks like a troian horse more than a firmware hack.
      The problem until now was that no one shared the jig scheme, that's why no one was able to use this "simply" method. Maybe these hackers have really GOOD contacts

      work around is that u install games to the ps3 internal hdd that wont work on fat 32 hdds because of single files over 4gb (until hopefully ntfs hdd is supported

      i just wrote a long ass article but i hit the "back button" and lost my post, but im convinced that its legit and here is why, (all speculation from my observations) when the ps3 initially boots up it starts loading the gameos (firmware) off of hdd and flash0 flash1 ect. the psjailbrake usb dongle is recognized as apart of the internal hdd with the same file trees and folders has the backup manager .pkg on it (like how u download the .pkg but then have to install it) and u install that .pkg to the ps3 HDD like a normal game/demo.pkg. the backup manager doesnt load the games it just backs them up, the usb dongle somehow tricks the ps3 (using debug ps3 BD emulator code) to reboot the ps3 and load files off the dongle and tricking the ps3 to think the usb hdd with the game backup is the BD-drive with a game in it. having a retail disc in the drive in order to play backups reminds me alot of the early days of PSP iso loaders (i assume its to pass disc validity checks)

      i hope this works on really low ps3 FW like 1.10 or atleast 3.15 ( last linux capable fw for fattie ps3s) and i hope that this will help bypass forced fw updates on the game discs
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      the one GAY part of this is, with ps3 games that have required hdd installs u still have to install that data and it would be nice if we could some how skpi it since the whole game is on hdd now anyway lol.

      seems kinda redundant to do it on a dev/test/debug machine as they have this ability already and this is (supposidly) what they used to make it work on retail PS3s.

      the manager.pkg doesnt load the games the dongle does. the .pkg is just for ripping/dumping/installing the games to hdd or usb
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      i just noticed something on the latest video at 2:14, under the game category in the XMB i see this */apps_homeps3game/ and */install package files.

      this hasnt been mentioned befor and makes me think he has a debug ps3. if not and the psjailbrake added those that would be awsome as mabe we could install retail game .pkg too and bypass any verification and psn account checks

      I was just about to say this? Hasnt everyone noticed if you go to YouTube - OzModChips.com tests Worlds First Ps3 Modchip (PSjailbreak) and pause at 45 seconds in you can clearly see it says * Install Package Files. Debug PS3's only then?

      noob ass question, is there any currently working method to install .pkg file to ps3?
      working with 1.10 fw? can someone extract the .self file from the .pkg i can run .selfs on my ps3 from usb...

      also idk if it has been mentioned yet but accoriding to the "disclaimer" this can also load homebrew!!!! wii and 360 emulators on ps3!!! lol

      um yes, i think its a edited/patched debug system's bd emulator for retail ps3s. im starting to think that the dongle is just formatted in the same format as the ps3 internal drive and is more or less just for installing the .pkg

      speculation seems to have it that the dongle was made from reverse engineering leaked ps3 jig dongles so the ps3 see is as offical sony hardware

      if u know of psp and pandora u might get the idea

      I've got a feeling its like the pandora battery. 'IF' a USB stick has an extra chip/secure area on it that the PS3 sees, then the PS3 turns into the Debug.

      If its just a normal memory card, minus this 'trigger' then the PS3 just sees.. well.. a USB memory stick.

      I've been searching through thousands of Sony patents over the last week, seeing if I could find any that suggested an de-encryption system external to the device. All I could find though turned out to be the patents for the psp.
      good points, but IMO its not "turning" a retail into a debug completely, its just added the needed/patch for retail BD emulator files. if it were full debug we would be able to load ps3 games off a pc connected to the ps3 via eathernet cable.

      i want to see a video of the ps jail break loading games without the dongle inserted

      i would assume the usb dongle is encrypted in the same fasion as the ps3 internal hdd
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      i think just came up with a way to be able to download off the net pre backed up games.

      theory....
      person A has a XXXGB hdd, rips a game to usb hdd, clones the usb HDD (like make a raw .img file of the whole hdd with a hex editor like winhex, and uploads said .img of the hdd to the net.
      person B downloads person A's usbhdd dump and restores it to his same size usbhdd, loads up the backup manager and plays persons A's games.

      feasable?

      Well it seems like out of the blue we come from a scene that has nothing more than linux, java games and fakes, to a week that team jungle announces his collaboration with team hades and 3 days later the first "modchip" is released, well I was about to screem fake when i first saw this in psx scene, and in fact i did, but now after watching the thread over the "other news site" and here and see the confirmation cjpc and xorloser, i think i can't argue anymore, this makes me think was that z-pack stuff real either???
      anyway how much has it been? september 6 of 2006 until now! it came a long away XD

      to SniperSnake

      Well i don't know the full potenetial of this so called hack if it turns the machine into a dev unit or not, as cjpc said the mode is started by holding eject and power while the machine is booting, it could very much turn it to a dev machine, but those characteristics were not shown or tested in the videos.

      to your theory yeah its feasable but i think its simpler than that, but might be possible.

      I just don't know how the hell we didn't get the files first, why the damn files didn't pass through the scene hands first before being used for a payed product, its weird how they got them first.

      idk if i was misunderstood or if i misunderstand u but i wasnt implying person b wouldnt need the dongle or manager.pkg. they would. i was more of less thinking of a way to not need to go and buy/rent/borrow games to maunally rip, but instead make it into a free piracy way of just downloading someone elses backup of a hdd with backups lol

      the only concern is if the usb hdds used with the ps jail brake are soemhow keyed to the system thats backing up the games kinda like how internal HDDs are
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      i have high hopes for this, and IMO it really doesnt feel rushed and that who ever is responsible for this really took there time, i like how the ps jailbrake icon/logo whatever had a pic of a de-branded ps3 (no offical ps3 logo on the console) as if they are trying to cover all there backs from sony sueing

      i have actually always thought this is exactly how the ps3 would be hacked, instead of finding hardware or software exploits, or coding a bd emulator from scratch, that it would take modifying debug consoles code to work on retail ps3s. it was a long chain of events for this to happen,jig leaks, ps3 sdk leaks, devs working hard with debug/test ps3s figuring out the differences between the 2, this is that user friendly hack i have been waiting for 4 years for and why i still have a 60gb launch ps3 stitting in a box on 1.10fw i YLODed my 20gb launch ps3, blow dryer fixed it traded it in for a 360 had a dude off CL flash it for me as i gave up on ps3, 2 weeks later after i give up all hope this pops up!

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      ive got this question, with a 3.41(current FW) ps3 can u install....say....the manager.pkg with proxies? i challange anyone to do this and see if we dont even need a stupid $160 usb dongle

      also if someone can get me the .self file from the .pkg that would be great as i can test it with 1.10 fw and the ability to load .selfs off usb

      the dongle is needed in order to allow files of manager.pkg to be loaded in a retail ps3.
      If u watch the video you will notice that ps3 starts by pushing power then eject, just like the service jig module needs to be loaded

      By the way someone have manager.pkg downloaded? I'd like to test it in my debug but I have problem to get it from the psjailbreak home page since of the heavy traffic.

      I have been a member at PSX-Scene since 2006 and they are one of the most reputable sites I know of. It is where I have always gone for my PS2 hacks and I have never been steered wrong.

      I believe them when they say this is real.

      However, I fear that this publicity will mean that their forums will now be filled with useless posts.

      Oh well at least there's still PS3Hax.

      You need the dongle as it turns the PS3 into debug mode (more privileges).

      And i hate people saying : "It's Fake, because there is no description how to use the manager.pkg!"
      The Dongle turns the PS3 into a Debug one. (Like JIG)
      Then you can load the manager.pkg, like in the video.

      you probably need the dongle so your ps3 boots in a kind of debug fw and the you can use the manager

      plain and simple....its for retail ps3s, not retail ps3s with ****ed up debug fw installed on them, and the .pkg has been patched to work on real %100 debug/test/dev ps3s. since you cant comprehend this i would just avoid this hack and sell your ps3, this is way over your head.

      the differance here is that the psp pandora was released as freeware and no one was trying to make a buck off that hack (even tho companies did rip off the coders and made jig kick batteries) this time the company/group? is trying to make a buck at this. it all comes down to if the dongle is just a standard usb drive with special encryption and files/folders or if it really has special hardware (some are reporting a micro proccessor is in the dongle)

      Holy Sh_t,
      I haven�t had to much time for the forums but damn, where did this come from?
      Of course my 1st reaction was scepticism but I�m believing this for a couple reasons.
      Like other members have stated, I never got false news from psx-scene. Also Ozmod is a legit site.
      So ya, I believe someone might have got a hold a the mythical ps3-jig and reversed it. so the dongle seems to make your ps3 work like a debug, allowing to rip games to the hdd and allowing them to be played.
      That price is crazy though. 179? Plus I�m not that interested in backup games. It would be nice to see alot of ps3 homebrew pop up though.
      very interesting stuff. I�ll be paying close attention to developments.
      I wonder how long it will take to hack the "hack", lol

      Commercial piracy is big business in Asia, with China being the main producer. PS3 is manufactured by low payed Foxconn employees in China who have a habit of leaking stuff such as factory and the PS3 Slim photos. So I'm really not surprised that it's a commercial Chinese company who were first to release something, they have the resources and more than likely the contacts. I guess they obtained a jig from a Foxconn employee for a price and reverse engineered it.

      From my understanding the software used by the jig contains copyrighted code, so mod companys will probably just sell the cloned jig without software installed and direct customers to the manufacturer's site where they can already download the software to make the hardware work. This will keep mod companys legal, whilst the manufacturer will probably rely on hosting in countries with weak or non-existent copyright law enforcement.

      Here's one of the leaked factory photos, the weak link for Sony as far as leaks are concerned IMO;

      Either way, we'll be able to make our own. Theres always a way with that type of thing. People tried to make money off pandora too just not the original hacker(s). Once a decent dev receives one of these i believe their business of selling these will be over. Anybody agree?

      the release of the manager.pkg was never said to work by itself, it was never said that u can just put it on a usb drive and it will work, if you READ and watch the videos, the .pkg needs the usb dongle to be installed on the ps3, the dongle isnt out officially for retail yet, i want to know why u think it would have worked without the dongle? when they say "works on all ps3s fat and slim and on the latest fw" didnt mean that it works without the dongle

      The interesting things about backup games loaded to HDD are:

      1) Not having to load a disk every time you want to play a game.
      2) Not having to carry disks with you if you travel with your PS3.
      3) Not having to worry about getting your disks scratched. Anyone who has young kids knows how important this is.
      4) Faster loading off the HDD as compared to the PS3's notoriously slow Blu Ray Drive.

      These are all important to me and what has extended my PS2's life for me. (I have a Fat PS2 with the internal HDD & Free MC Boot / HD Loader Installed)

      This wouldn't be technically possible for some games which require resources freed up in newer firmwares which aren't available in older firmwares.

      dont update till you know FOR A FACT that it wont work on 3.15, and so far i can assume that it will work on 3.15, lets assume they (whoever made the dongle) have been working on it for a while and not since april 1 2010.

      just cuz sony will one day stop hoasting 3.41 doesnt mean you cant get it else were and updat the ps3 offline with a usb drive there are many websites that are hosting older fw updat.pups just dl 3.41 from sown now and save it somewere

      more than likely, the dongle has special HW. ...like most USB keys/dongles a piece of SW will look to the HW for a special instruction (example) & then proceed....this is to prevent SW piracy...

      for example, i have a Auto cad program that is awesome & its installed, however if i remove the USB key, the SW does not work. The usb key shows up as a 512mb drive, but there is NOTHING on it....ive even tried a BUNCH of file managers via Win & Linux, & nothing is on the drive.....

      so this dongle is probaly the same

      A friend tested the patched manager with his debug and he told me it creates a directory with all the files untouched.
      Since original files can't work from hdd there must be some other tool that patch the eboot.

      i have a old ps3 that i can (possibly) get the retail ps3 version of the manager.pkg onto. i can (possibly) do this only because i have the original ps3 firmware version 1.10 on my 60gb launch ps3 (been in the box since i bought it 4 years ago) and i will later on today try to use a old exploit to trick my ps3 into installing the .PKG. i now know for a fact that even if it installs and i can use the program to dump/backup the games i cant get them to boot up without the dongle.

      to all the nay Sayers who think this is fake just cuz this came out of nowhere with no previous info, well THAT IS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why let the world and sony about a attack on there system and give them a heads up? LOOK AT OTHEROS and GeoHOtz, he didnt need to discuss and tell everyone that he was working on the ps3 he didnt need to publicly release his method of attack as proof that he hacked teh unhackable geohot wanted a challenge and more e-fame. he got that. if he would have keept tight lipped about his **** and waited until he had something that was actually useful to the end users we would all still have otheros and not the drama

      I'm wondering if Sony can use their jig to revert to lower firmware. I don't know if it's really necessary for it to have this capability though, it would probably make more sense to release a higher fw version fixing any fatal bugs in a previous release.

      However, what if the fw is so corrupted that it doesn't know what fw it's supposed to be on, or it thinks it's on fw 99.99?

      I think it's not implausible that this mod could lead to a way to downgrade the fw thus bringing back otheros.

      PS3 Firmware (v3.42) Update
      The next system software update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system will be released on August 19, 2010 (JST), and will disable the USB ports that are available on all PS3 systems, launched in November 2006. Due to security concerns, Sony Computer Entertainment will remove the functionality through the 3.42 system software update.
      In addition, disabling the USB ports will help ensure that PS3 owners will continue to have access to the broad range of gaming and entertainment content from SCE and its content partners on a more secure system.
      Consumers and organizations that currently use the USB ports can choose not to upgrade their PS3 systems, although the following features will no longer be available;
      * Ability to sign in to PlayStation Network and use network features that require signing in to PlayStation Network, such as online features of PS3 games and chat
      * Playback of PS3 software titles or Blu-ray Disc videos that require PS3 system software version 3.42 or later
      * Playback of copyright-protected videos that are stored on a media server (when DTCP-IP is enabled under Settings)
      * Use of new features and improvements that are available on PS3 system software 3.42 or later

      ok time to hook my ps3 again, i will try the old exploit of launching self files through the other os feature as i still on 1.50, and report back if anything works.

      It was funny tomas, in fact their next step when they see that they cannot stop us, will be stopping the ps3 from reading blu ray games, PS3 owners will continue to have access to the broad range of entertainment. like movies and movies, and i guess movies.

      we will have a glorified blu-ray player!

      However, what if the fw is so corrupted that it doesn't know what fw it's supposed to be on, or it thinks it's on fw 99.99?

      I think it's not implausible that this mod could lead to a way to downgrade the fw thus bringing back otheros.
      it has been said that this dongle will allow hombrew to run, now just how privileged access to the system the homebrew can achieve is not known yet. lets hope its like the psp all over again backups first, then homebrew, then downgraders then custom firmware

      um what? i know what your talking about (one reason im still on 1.10) but there isnt a manager.self its a .pkg u cant rename manager.pkg to otheros.self and have it load, a .pkg is like a .zip/.rar file and a .self is like a .exe

      i was thinking maybe sony had got them shut down....but then i remebered, the USA just passsed the law LEGALLY ALLOWing people to hack/crack/root/exploit HW , so maybe its just a excess of traffic killing those servers

      unless you have a debug/test/dev ps3 you cant extract .pkgs or get the .selfs i think if u ask richdevx nicely he can do it for u he already patcked teh .pkg to run on test ps3s.

      since april (otheros loss and my 20gb ps3 YLODed on me) i haven't cared about the lackluster ps3 hacking scene. i even traded in the 20gb ps3 for a 360 that i flashed within a week of getting it

      unless there is a .pkg extractor that came out when i wasnt around

      Send me a PM with ur email and i will send u the self file from the patched pkg of richdevx.
      By the way it create a directory with the files. The problem is that the game won't start because the eboot is still encrypted, maybe the dongle does somthing on the fly...

      The picture is most probably one of the solutions they are coming up with at good ol' Sony right now.

      Play backups off your hard drives 2x as fast as off the blueray drive. This eliminates lags and glitches to provide you with smoother game play.
      Fake, cause well c'mon everybody knows USB 2.0 is never going to outrun the BD-drive's connection to the PS3. It's simply too slow to provide "smooth play-back".

      And also every self respecting "hacker/modder/glitcher" makes sure that they get their facts right and call the damn thing that it's called. which is:
      BLU-RAY Drive

      no need to get your knickers in a twist dude...i guess u missed the part that u can use the ps3 internal hdd and/or a usb drive. so agame on the internel hdd WILL load faster than BD... i guess u also dont know that "blu-ray" discs do load slower than even conventional DVDs and is why so many games require you to install a few GBs to hdd to reduce load times. BD-drive blu-ray disc drive what ever its just a shorter way of saying teh same dam thing do u get mad when people use FW or CFW instead of firmware or custom firm ware? wtf? grammar police?

      Plus... whats the USB 2 got to do with it? Nothing is going through a USB connection...
      The dongle is not being accessed to load the game.
      USB for dumping the games to a usb drive (not the dongle) and playing them. you have the option to use usb hdds or the internal hdds

      im not going to find the actual numbers of data loading per second but i can gaurentiee that loading data off a 2x or 4x BD-rom is way slower than the read spead of the hdd otherwise there would be no forced data install on bigger games like gta4 or MGS4

      thats gay they could have sent it to me

      PSJailbreak does exactly what he verpricht.
      Die Funktionsweise ist wie folgt:
      The operation is as follows:
      PSJailbreak in den USB Port stecken, PS3 einschalten, direkt nach dem einschalten kurz die Eject Taste dr�cken.
      PSJailbreak plug into the USB port, turn on PS3, turn right after the brief press the eject button.
      Sobald die PS3 hochgefahren ist, hat man einen neuen Menupunkt: INSTALL PACKAGE FILE.
      Once the PS3 is powered up, you have a new menu item: INSTALL PACKAGE FILE.
      Diesen Men�punkt gibt es eigentlich nur bei Debug Konsolen, aber dank PSJailbreak nun auch auf normalen Retailkonsolen.
      This menu point is only reserved for debug consoles, but thanks PSJailbreak also at normal retail consoles.
      Das Package File, das man dann installiert ist der Backuploader, welchen man sich bei PSjailbreak.com herunterladen kann.
      The package file which you then install the baking Uploader, which you can download from PSjailbreak.com.
      Sobald der Backuploader installiert ist findet man ihn unter “SPIELE”.
      Once the baking Uploader is installed you can find it under "games".
      Wenn man den Backuploader gestartet hat kann man ausw�hlen ob man ein Spiel spielen oder installieren m�chte.
      When we started the back Uploader, you can choose whether you want to install a game or play.
      Die Installation eines Spieles dauert ca 10 - 15 Minuten, je nach Gr��e.
      The installation of a game takes about 10-15 minutes depending on size.
      Nun kann man das Spiel zum Spielen ausw�hlen woraufhin das PS3 Menu neu geladen wird.
      Now you can choose to play the game whereupon the PS3 menu is reloaded.
      Ein Originalspiel muss eingelegt sein.
      An original game to be loaded.
      Der PS3 wird nun vorgegaukelt, dass es sich bei dem eingelegten Spiel um jenes handelt, welches man im Backuploader ausgew�hlt hat und es startet.
      The PS3 will be fooled now, that it is inserted in the game to that which you have chosen in the back uploader and it starts.
      FAZIT: PSJailbreak funktioniert.
      CONCLUSION: PSJailbreak works.
      Dank dem USB Dongle l�sst sich unsignierter Code starten.
      Thanks to the USB dongle can be started unsigned code.
      Die Geschichte l�uft auf der aktuellsten Firmware 3.41 und laut Hersteller ist ein Update Blocker integriert, der ein Update des PS3 Systems verhindert.
      The story runs on the latest firmware 3.41 and according to the manufacturer an update blocker is integrated, which prevents an update of the PS3 system.
      Weiterhin soll der USB Dongle updatef�hig sein.
      Furthermore the USB dongle to be upgradeable.
      Fazit Nr. 2: Wir werden PSJailbreak leider nicht verkaufen k�nnen und haben unser Testexemplar, sowie s�mtliche Versandunterlagen vernichtet, die Sony Anw�lte d�rfen also zu Hause bleiben… Danke sch�n!
      Conclusion No. 2: We will not PSJailbreak unfortunately can sell and have our test specimen, and all shipping documents destroyed, the Sony lawyers are therefore allowed to stay at home ... Thank you

      so if no one sales it how is the general populous going to get ahold of it? I understand people are trying to dump the info from the usb but if it was that simple why would they even announce that they were going to sale these things? wouldnt it have been cheaper just to release the file for everyone to use with there own flashdrive instead of going through all the trouble of setting up a sales website?

      They didn't say no one sold it, they said that, that store is not going to sell it due to legal issues, OZmods are going to sell it for instance, if they would release the files they wouldn't make money now would they??

      Not quite, RichDevX moded the manage.pkg to run from debug units, but still can't accomplish much since they don't have the dongle lets see what happens the manage pkg runs extracts the game i think and then exits.

      Update 1:
      RichDevX has posted a patched version of the PKG Manager on his twitter, that allows backups to be ran for PS3 Debug users (you will need to decrypt selfs). As of now PSJailbreak does seem like the real deal, however we advise our members and readers to NOT purchase the USB dongle/device and that there will most likely be a FREE solution soon.

      thats a great question
      hmm you would think since ur loading the game off ur hdd that it would work fine but u wouldnt be able to back up any games ur self so u would have to play pirated games which is illegal.

      Easy start up instructions

      1. Visit www.psjailbreak.com/downloads - download Backup Manager and copy onto any standard FAT32 formatted USB flash drive

      2. Power off your console (For Fat model you can flick power switch in the back. For slim you must unplug power cable and re-plug out of back of console).

      3. Insert PS Jailbreak into your consoles USB port (you should have nothing else plugged in)

      4. Press power button on console, release power button and then immediately press the eject button (You will then see two lights while the console loads. If the light turns green then that means PS Jailbreak is working,if it turns red then that means you did not press power/eject in a quick enough sequence. If you see red light please un-plug your console from the wall and begin step 4 over again).

      5. Insert USB key with backup manager downloaded on it.

      6. On main system menu go to "Game", then "Install Package Files", and click to install Backup Manager.

      7. Scroll down game menu and you will see Backup Manager application, please click on it

      8. Insert your licensed game that you would like to backup into the drive, if you wish to backup to an external hard drive please insert it now. Click O button to backup game. You will be asked if you would like to backup to external hard drive (by clicking no it will ask you to backup to internal hard drive).

      9. To load a backup game please insert any game into the drive (You can have any real PS3 game in the drive, but you must leave 1 game in the drive to access your 100's of backups. This ensures reliability in the game loading process). Now choose the game you would like to load with Backup Manager highlighted. Scroll up 1 and you will see the chosen game that you have loaded from Backup Manager.

      Click on it, an enjoy your games!

      By the way if the dongle "transform" a retail PS3 into a debug one then it give it the ability to install debug pkgs, this means it's possible to install homebrew on a retail Ps3 that's awesome!

      It could also be that port 1000 could be open just like the debug PS3 so it could communicate with a PC (APP HOME + Target manager and so on).

      The first thing they should do is get other os back on, That would really piss Sony Off...............lmao

      What makes people think there will be a free version, things like this have been brought out before, eg.. mypocketxp for pc, and it can not be copied on to another usb stick. You must use the stick supplied.

      Also, I would say it is more of a hardware device then just a regular stick with software on it.

      USB for dumping the games to a usb drive (not the dongle) and playing them. you have the option to use usb hdds or the internal hdds

      im not going to find the actual numbers of data loading per second but i can gaurentiee that loading data off a 2x or 4x BD-rom is way slower than the read spead of the hdd otherwise there would be no forced data install on bigger games like gta4 or MGS4
      I indeed missed the part that it was ran from the internal HDD thus having a SATA connection. Still I'm skeptical on this. And if this works i'll wait for the community to have an answer to the steep price.

      By the way i have a debug and when i use BD emulator i can select the emulation speed:
      Like the original BD drive or the native hdd speed.
      Why sony would gave me the opportunity to chose this setting if there would no difference?
      I notice a better speed if i use native hdd option on my external bd emulator hdd.

      It is ~$128 here:

      it is patched by richdevx so ps3 test/debug/dev units can use it. It didn't work for those units until the patch. Retail units need the dongle in order to run the code.

      Here is more information from the official site:
      *PS Jailbreak is a USB plug and play solution that installs in seconds, keeping your valid warranty seal in tact.

      * Easy to use installer and GUI takes you step by step.
      Compatible with all production models FAT and SLIM. Supports all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA

      * PS Jailbreak disables forced software updates and will never brick your console.
      Supports all games (it does not allow backups of bluray movies , dvd movies , or past consoles games)

      * Backup games to your internal hard drive or external hard drive through USB, and boot directly off GUI. Eliminating the need for expensive blueray burners and costly blank media.
      Play backups off your hard drives 2x as fast as off the blueray drive. This eliminates lags and glitches to provide you with smoother game play.

      * Open up your console to a new generation of homebrew applications. Load homebrew apps/games off any USB hard drive/flash drive.

      * Fully updatable with new features/updates by connecting PS Jailbreak to any computers USB port.

      1st if that video over megavideo is yours you should already be trying to dump the jig files on the pc, i don't know how the hell you got the usb stick and i really don't care, but upload the files.

      2nd if the pkg is hardcoded not to run on the debug units why the hell are you running it on a debug?

      Edit 1

      The feature i was looking for:
      Open up your console to a new generation of homebrew applications. Load homebrew apps/games off any USB hard drive/flash drive.

      Wow.... people are slow when it comes to dumping the USB Dongle.

      Over at the "other site" they state:

      "Can the USB Dongle be dumped? Possibly however initial common attempts to dump it have failed. The dongle is detected as an Unknown USB device in windows. It does not show up as a storage device. Trying to raw dump it with programs like Hex workshop also do not detect it since it doesn’t show as a storage device."

      1.Who the heck uses Windows for dumping� lol ..its called LINUX
      2.USB sniffing on Linux is your best bet. Anyone with the dongle please use this method for dumping which is outlined here http://biot.com/blog/usb-sniffing-on-linux
      3.Post the dump online and let the scene run wild.

      and worst comes to worst use a programmer of some sort to dump the raw data and then use its dump to create a replicate.

      It would be very funny if someone dumped the Dongle using yellow dog linux or Fedora lol... The PS3 being used to dump its JIG. Now thats creative.

      well no go with the otheros.self exploit i tried renaming the eboot.bin from the extracted un patched manager.pkg. eh i didnt really expect it to work, as the self needs to be modified. my next step is to try updating my ps3 from 1.10 to 1.60 so i can get folding@home on the ps3, then use ps3 proxy to trick the ps3 into installing manager.pkg instead of [email protected].....

      i get that i still wont be able to play the backups till i get a dongle but im curious if it will work pocket69 since u are allready on 1.50 u should just up it to 1.60 and be a test dummy worst case scenario it doesnt work.

      i really dont want to update and i want to see if the psjailpreak will work with launch 1.10 fw, if it does then i want to see if the newest games can still play on 1.10 fw

      I forgot to mention that the debug self can't be run from a retail unit (without the dongle at least that convert the retail to debug).

      By the way it's impossible to play new games with 1.10 fw cause of the fact new games need an updated firmware because new firmware carry new libraries needed to run the games.
      Some games just check the fw version in order to let the user to update (while they use old libraries revision to work) the most games instead use new libraries because the developers used them to create the game, so can't run on older firmwares.

      Mate, i can give you a retail self so you could see that it would run.
      So you'll understand what i mean

      By the way it's a pity to keep a console in the box just to keep it on a lower fw version because if something would be released just for lower fw it won't be for the masses (cause most ppl update the console) so it sure wouldn't be a supported thing (IMHO).

      um i thought i had the original unpatched eboot.bin allready?!?!!?!?!? hook it up man u know my e-mail addy...

      about the box thing, well im a old school PSP sceener i remember for years it was all about the 1.50 psp OFW, and the rule of thumb was to not update and add all of sonys security patches. i purposely bought 2 PS3s the first week they came out in the US (got 1 with the talladega knights bd promo first 50'000 ps3s came with.
      i used one till it YLOD on me so i blow dryer fixed it and traded it in for a 360, this was all about 3 weeks ago. i have about 40 ps3 games but i wont update my 60gb just to play games i have already played/beat so there is no point, my flashed 360 gets me by for now, once a cheeper/free psjailbreak dongle/clone comes out then ill reluctantly up to 3.41

      also im hoping for a way to emulate the entire ps3 fw off a usb drive similar to dev-hook for psp. then i can not update, just emulate 3.41 and play the new ****

      By the way it's impossible to play new games with 1.10 fw cause of the fact new games need an updated firmware because new firmware carry new libraries needed to run the games.
      Some games just check the fw version in order to let the user to update (while they use old libraries revision to work) the most games instead use new libraries because the developers used them to create the game, so can't run on older firmwares.

      Yes, u have both the original and the patched selfs, problem is that both comes from a debug pkg so those are both debug selfs that won't run on a retail ps3 (the dongle convert retail into a debug, that's why it works).

      Yeah, friends told me manager create a folder on drive with the game id, inside that are saved the files on disc without the disc encryption layer.
      If one of the files is bigger than 4 gb then the game won't work cause manager cut it (like the image above where red dead redemption file is cut at 4gb, that file is like 8gb if i remember good).
      The solution in that case is to save it in the internal hdd.

      johnnyclark, that depends. On debug units you can and since this changes your PS3 into a debug unit that might be possible. Although it might be that it only allows you to install packages.

      Indepth test: http://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_revie...lbreak_1473364

      Main points:

      * Backup Manager CAN be uninstalled (his previous comments on this were misinterpreted).
      * Backups created on one console run on any other console with Backup Manager
      * Backup to Internal HDD is far quicker than backup to external HDD
      * Game updates already installed must be uninstalled or the backup fails to load

      Test Results:

      God of War III:
      File Size: 40.10GB
      Internal Backup Time: 90 mins
      External Backup Time: 280 mins

      Red Dead Redemption:
      File Size: 4.83GB
      Internal Backup Time: 15 mins
      External Backup Time: 40 mins*
      * Fails (file over 4 GB)

      Condemned 2:
      File Size: 6.43GB
      Internal Backup Time: 15 mins
      External Backup Time: 40 mins

      Resistance: Fall of Man:
      File Size: 15.40GB
      Internal Backup Time: 35 mins
      External Backup Time: 100 mins*
      * Fails (file over 4 GB)

      FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010:
      File Size: 7.36GB
      Internal Backup Time: 15 mins
      External Backup Time: 40 mins

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Good to know that Backup Manager can actually be uninstalled, also confirmation that Backups aren't locked to the console they were backed up on.

      It's about 3x quicker to backup to the internal HDD than the external HDD, and games with files over 4GB don't seem too uncommon, so a large internal HDD will be required for best results.

      This probably deserves it's own thread, but I don't have the privilidges to make one, so if anyone else wants to make one feel free to cut and paste.

      When the game rips to the harddrive, you can actaully see all of the files on the disc. This includes txt files, videos, trophy files, PSP update file (which you can delete or replace!). Its great for people that want to play around and hack their games, and great for junior developers who want to see how the professionals make their games!
      So theoretically it should be possible to copy the text from an unlocalised Japanese game into Google Translate, then replace the original Japanese text with the English translation.

      Most Japanese games have some words in the Roman alphabet, so I guess the game should be able to display it, but it might take some editing to fit the English text to the same space as the original Japanese. Probably lots of potential to break the game, but hopefully possible with a bit of trial and error. Even if it's just the menus it could make it a lot simpler to play.

      The only Japanese game which I have that hasn't been localised is Wangan Midnight, looking forward to experimenting with that.

      Have been asking myself this why hasn't Sony made anything yet, no reactions no comments etc, well apparently they did:

      Upon hearing of PSJailbreak, Sony has seemingly put one finger in each ear and screamed 'la la la la not listening'. In one of the first responses received related to PSJailbreak, SCE Australia stated the following - "we don't comment on rumour and speculation." Although, PSJailbreak is not rumour, it is not speculation, it clearly works. Sony clearly wasn't expecting the PS3's security to be blown apart in such fashion at this point in time.

      from maxconsole.net

      it was a good read XD

      SCE Australia is pretty low down on the heirachy, it's not really for them to comment for what would be taken as the whole of Sony on the matter. It's quite understandable for them to sidestep the question until a companywide line comes down from above.

      To be honest I don't see what they have to gain from commenting on it before they've fixed it.

      Acknowledging the problem will just give more unwanted publicity in the mainstream press, informing owners currently ignorant of the situation before they can update to the next firmware.

      Maybe we simply make a big deal of it because people here were expecting this (or sort of) for years. But did you read it on the Time cover title? Or did you here it on radio/tv?
      But in real facts:
      How many dongles have been dealt worldwide? How many people are screwing Sony right now?
      Tens? Hundreds? surely not thousands, which is nothing from an absolute/objective point of view (the point of view Sony should have as a worldwide group company).
      In addition, the "dongle of death" is sold out so in sense, the scar has stopped bleeding for a few days.
      Sony probably work on a solution and they will surely deal it soon via new firmware.
      It's no big deal (yet) for them, and even if it sounds like earthquake to us, they are strong enough to face this with cold blood and brains (after all, they're paid for it)

      EDIT: In addition, I doubt Sony thought their toy was unhackable/unleakable.
      Every piece of electronics gets ripped one day or the other. Only fools think they are kings for ever. Sony is experienced in the console market for more than 15 years, it's not their first strike. If they are smart (which i dont doubt), they created a security that would last long enough to get benefits. I dont work in the electronics market, but if i did my decisions and product policy / sales policy would evaluate the risks of copying and the time it will take before my product get ripped. If they dont take this consideration into account, then they would be dumb and too proud...
