The news keeps rolling in about the latest PS Jailbreak modchip that has the PS3 scene on a boom. Skeptical at first, but the more we here about it the better it gets, it seems that PS Jailbreak is the real deal and works on Fat and Slim units on the latest PS3 firmware. With the mass of information coming in we will try our best filter and organize the news as it comes.
ElOtroLado have done a very nice review of PS Jailbreak running on the PS3 Slim, you can read the full review below or at the source.
By reasons for work, see you tomorrow in the morning I am not going to be able to dedicate to him all along that I would like, but at least I am going to try to touch the basic points until it can complete review.
Sample sent by the manufacturer solely consists of a pencil of memory (PS Jailbreak) and a leaf with some explanations on the product. Most remarkable and what it matters to us it is:
- The PS Jailbreak is compatible with any model of existing PlayStation 3 to day of today (as much FAT as SLIM).
- We can as much realziar backups in the Internal HD as in an External HD.
- It works with all the games of PlayStation 3.
- It supports homebrew.
- Actualizable to add new characteristics.
But imporante since it contradicts something that they indicate in his Web, it is that to be able to use it a version of firmware 3,41 in the console is essential, since the archives have been optimized for this version. It is not mentioned in any point if this characteristic is unique of samples sent, or will be common in end items, reason why at the moment is pending of explanation.
personally me it has been impossible to initialize the device with a previous version of firmware, but concretely with varsión 2,85, reason why I have had to update the console to version 3.41.
- Installed Firmware 3,41 in the console (at least for sample that they have sent).
- To unload the Backup Manager of its Web and to copy it in any external storage device USB with format FAT32.
1. – We must always start off of which the console is dull before connecting USB to him PS Jailbreak. Following the console version we must:
- PlayStation 3 FAT. It is enough with extinguishing the console from the back switch.
- PlayStation 3 SLIM. It is essential to disconnect the feeder of the back part of the console.
We connect to any port USB of the console the PS Jailbreak, having the precaution of not having nothing else connected by USB.
2. – We pressed the button of POWER of the console and to immediately afterwards we pressed the EJECT button. We will see how the 2 LEDS of the PS Jailbreak ignite while it loads the console (10 seconds approximately), and then you can happen several things:
*. – That the LED of Green color is ignition. What means that the PS Jailbreak is working correctly.
*. – That the LED of Red color is ignition. What means that the PS Jailbreak has not loaded correctly. Habitually this happens when we did not press the sequence of Power suitably and next Eject.
If the final result is the LED of ignited Red color, we will have to repeat the process from the beginning with the precaution to disconnect the feeder of the back part of the PlayStation 3 Slim or to cut the current from the back switch of the 3 PlayStation Fat.
3. – Once device PS Jailbreak is loaded correctly, we connected the external storage device USB with the Backup Manager to the console.
4. – We went to the GAME menu and we moved until the option “Install Package Files”, for next selecting Backup Manager.
5. – Once finalized the process, if we moved at the end of the menu GAME will appear to us the Application Backup Manager. We selected it we executed and it.
6. – Once executed, we must introduce in the reader of the console the game that we wish to do backup. If we wished to realise backup in external device USB, pressed the button Or.
It is possible to select the destiny of backup, since we can choose between the external storage device USB or the own HD of the console.
7. – To load to culaquier backup already created it is enough with inserting a game in the console (the same game can be used always) and from the menu of the Backup Manager we will select backup wished and we will press button X. Also is possible to eliminate to culaquier backup pressing the button/.
The reason to have inserted a game in the reader of the console is simply to emulate the load process.
8. – Once selected backup wished, and after pressing button X, we will return automatically to the main meú of the console, more concertamente to the option of Backup Manager, and to finalize to load the game, it will be enough with moving a single time upwards to see how the wished game appears to us there. We selected it and ready, already we can play ours backup!
I right now do not have time to prove the way online, nor to deepen everything what I would like, reason why as soon as is possible to me I will realise the tests.
Anyway, it is necessary to consider that once installed in the console the PS Jailbreak, no longer is possible to eliminate it.
Some important points that there am no addition at the outset and I believe that they must consider:
- Backup of the GOW3 has taken approximately about 90 minutes in copying itself in the internal HD of the console.
- The way online works perfectly.
- It is impossible to apply updates in the games if they are being loaded from the PS Jailbreak, although these if that are applied perfectly if we loaded the game from the Blu-Ray.
- In the same way, it is impossible to skip the videos of the games if load from the PS JAilbreak.
- Although the Backup Manager is installed in the console, is essential that the PS Jailbreak is connected and activated correctly to be able to execute the Backup Manager.
- If the PS Jailbreak with the ignited console retires either it is hung or it goes out, and I do not believe that it is very good nor for the console nor for the PS Jailbreak.
In order to verify if the PS Jailbreak were compatible with versions previous of firmware to the 3,41, I have bought a new console, and with the haste to the hour to initialize it and the headache that I take today, I have been mistaken and I put the date of yesterday, sorry! A thing less than the one than to worry!
