Update: martenbroadclk has now shared pre-compiled hex codes ready to burn followed shortly by hex codes for all boards, including both the original PSGroove release and CJPC's dev_bdvd patched version and Xantra has http://gueux-forum.net/index.php?showtopic=242212&st=180 the ATmega164PA PS JailBreak Schematics And PCB Layout.
Recently we reported that the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip was successfully cloned, and today the PSGroove PS3 exploit arrives!
PSGroove is an open-source reimplementation of the PSJailBreak exploit for AT90USB and related microcontrollers.
The PSGroove for now allows the very same features as the PSJailBreak but without backup manager support, you can also now remove the dongle.
The original PSJailbreak dongle had a patch that would trigger the lv1 panic hypercall if the dongle wasn't in the list of connected devices.
CJPC has also detailed HERE how to patch it to allow for the proper mountpoint dev_bdvd to be mounted enabling the playback of backup games and posted a patched version below for those lazy.
Teensy boards only have one LED, so it will turn off when the exploit succeeds rather than turn green. Older Teensy 1.0 boards also have the polarity inverted. In general, a LED should do something when the board is powered, and do something different when the exploit works.
On Linux, use the AVR GCC toolchain (Debian/Ubuntu package: gcc-avr). On Windows, WinAVR should do the trick.
Now program psgroove.hex into your board and you're ready to go. For the AT90USBKEY and other chips with a DFU bootloader preinstalled, you can get the dfu-programmer tool, put your board in programming mode, and run
For the Teensy boards, you probably have to use the Teensy Loader software.
To use this exploit:
- Hard power cycle your PS3 (using the switch in back, or unplug it)
- Plug the dongle into your PS3.
- Press the PS3 power button, followed quickly by the eject button.
After a few seconds, the first LED on your dongle should light up. After about 5 seconds, the second LED will light up (or the LED will just go off, if you only have one). This means the exploit worked! You can see the new "Install Package Files" menu option in the game menu.
A programmed dongle won't enumerate properly on a PC, so don't worry about that.
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.
