• PS3 Hacks, x3jailbreak , 02.09.2010

    With the release of PSGroove, you would expect all the PSJailbreak clones to zap out of existence right? Well x3Jailbreak is determined that their product is the way to go, they have posted today stating that “x3jailbreak for lower then any other device available including new homebrew devices suggested online.” Under $20 then? Sounds like a steal, and may very well be an attractive solution for those who can’t get their hands on a USB board.

    Full news post:

    [2010.09.02]

    X3jailbreak.com will be shipping our samples out to 100 selected requests starting Sept 3rd-Sept 6th and x3jailbreak are now taking pre-orders which will start shipping by the end of next week (Sept 10th-13th). Feel free to submit your pre-orders today.

    Our goal at x3jailbreak was to provide you as customers a powerful, quality and low cost solution.
    Even with recent events you will still be able to purchase our x3jailbreak for lower then any other device available including new homebrew devices suggested online.

    You will receive a quality dongle that is completely functioning and ready to use as soon as it arrives.

    Our X3jailbreak features include the following:

    1) Larger case for ease of use and less change of misplacing or losing your dongle.
    2) More Powerful (competition using 8 bit processor compared to x3 is using a 32 bit operating processor)
    3) Hardware USB compared to where PSJ is software emulated
    4) As updates become available x3jailbreak is easily upgradable.
    5) Expansion ports for upcoming features/add-on

    Your X3 will come with a serial number to use online to verify proof that your x3jailbreak is authentic and also you will be able to use your serial number
    to access the download area when new updates become available.

    We get our review sample in soon, so we will keep keep you updated when our x3Jailbreak arrives.

      LOL! I knew they would try somthing like this. But even if they make it $20.00 even with shipping included I would still have to think about it.:thefinger:

      As they state on there site the shipping date is... Oh wait they dont have a date. So it could be from 1-2 weeks or up to a month before they have sufficient inventory to ship out.

      An my guess is by then there should be a port out for a device (PSP,iPhone, Droid ect..) if not all of them. An that my friends is the best deal in the long run because it will be FREE with the same if not SHORTER wait/shipping time.

      So for now I'm willing to wait a month or so.

      How about you?

      It's frustrating, I'm going to pay over $35 for the AT90USBKEY and it's going to arrive in two weeks, just because they are difficult to find here in Mexico. You can't feel my pain

      They cant beat the scene, that will be for casual gamers, but we stay true to the scene XD

      that is a good solution for someone that doesn't know how to do anything, they buy it online and plug it on the ps3. the release date is yet to be seen, s it could be over a month before they start shipping.

      Well the release of psp port might be first then.

      I really hope so. What do you recommend me to do? Order the AT90USBKEY (I still need a confirmation so I can cancel my order) or just wait for a PSP port? I want it to jailbreak my friends' PS3 too (that's what friends do, right?)

      I ordered the blackcatUSB and the teensy++ and still the psp version is coming, if i were you i would still buy the at90usbkey, and if the psp version comes out first the best if not you will have the AT90 waiting for you, and another thing, when the psgroove gets updated it will be first the hex files so we can install them on the at90, and then psp version will have to be coded (or updated) and that will always come 2nd.

      yes you can unplug it, but everytime you want to use homebrew you will have to plug the cable again

      So what's the way to go? x3JailBreak or PSGroove (Scene)? i've ordered a teensy++ and just waiting for delivery because im thinking that whatever 'official' clones come up with, the scene can zip out same feature set or better so we can flash our own devices

      or is there any advantage to a PSJB or X3 over a scene/teensy++?

      Go to the Downloads section on their site. Funny. Just like PSJB. No manual but, no Bck Mgr. Funny. Glad I ordered my Blackcat and grabbed the software. If they can kick it off for 20 I will get some and sling them like rocks but I personally am gonna use the Cat. P.S. You can say its free but NOTHING in LIFE is FREE!!!!!!!!!!! NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to all that worked to hack and jack the so called unhackable box.

      from Article:

      "3) Hardware USB compared to where PSJ is software emulated
      4) As updates become available x3jailbreak is easily upgradable.
      5) Expansion ports for upcoming features/add-on"

      The first 2 statements contradict eachother; software emulated allows for updates, hardware USB is not very flexible.

      #5 is great...the Teensy has 25 expansion ports.

      "“x3jailbreak for lower then any other device available including new homebrew devices suggested online.”"

      That actually puts it under $18; the price of a Teensy 2.0...maybe they will just drop the price of the x3 to $15 shipped!

      Totally agreed with Pockets69, I have orderer both the teensy and the blackusb and I don't they any psjail thingy will be updatable as they state. Maybe you should buy another piece of junk to make it updatable. Just because these boards (teensy and blackusb) doesn't have a nice looking cover you will buy one of those psjail. I'm still thinking how to make a case or enclosure

      I'll stick with the scene :thefinger:

      Why would you want to port to a hand help system that barely gets advertised anymore, which only a small amount of people own? A more viable option would be just a regular $5 USB that we can copy and paste files to (simple) none of this flashing / whatever stuff.

      Because alot of people who own PS3s own a PSP also.

      And for the one millionth time, A REGULAR USB FLASH DRIVE CANNOT BE USED AS A PSJAILBREAK!!!

      Why not porting to PSP? I personally don't own one, maybe won't buy one, that's my choice, but for many people that actually own one this will be a better solution instead on buying a programable USB board.

      Why is so difficult for people to understand that a normal regular common USB flash drive thumbstick pendrive (whatever name you like) CANNOT/DOES NOT WORK???

      For any one saying/asking about the USB flash drive, do us a favor, grab a normal USB flash drive put the .hex file into and try it on your PS3 and make a video and post it on youtube, would you?

      Psps may not be popular as before. but im sure theres people like me that bought one or two, years ago and still have them laying around with CFW installed. If there was a psp port well that would make it better, since in some places you cant get a board.

      penguito/Pockets - pretty much what I thought...scene forever. PSJB and x3 will NEVER push updates out - they'll make their quick $$$$ by selling their key, then disappear forever.

      Wise words ssvetec ( i dobelieve that they update, but they won't go so fast as the scene, we will have more updates from the scene than from jailbreak teams)

      I'd personally err on the side of the 'scene on this one. Purely because for future updates you're relying on the X3 developers still being around. The PS3 scene has been around this long, I can see it being around alot longer.

      Back when the WiiKey first came out, support from the official developers dried out for a while, resulting in people being unable to play Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I'm not saying this is gunna happen with any jailbreak distributors, but it's always on my mind...

      Can we now update the PS3 to the lastest firmware?

      Will theses devices work on the lastest update?

      I haven't updated since they removed the install other os.

      I hope someone can create a homebrew multi region tool for dvd and blu ray. Wouldn't have a clue myself where to start making homebrew software.

      Cheers

      I believe that this works on the latest F/W, however subsequent releases from Sony may address these vulnerabilities.

      I believe the next release of Backup Manager allows region free BR's.

      I'd tried it yesterday with this tutorial, but with no results. I think you have to manual overide the firmware as shown in the tutorial..

      Well i don't think they are fake, but we don't have any proof that they are real either, we are waiting for a decent video, cause the one they posted is a crap, if i were you when buying from those guys i would just wait and see if other people have recieved their orders, or you could be like the rest of us and buy a dev board and not wait for those clones.
