Arrrrgh! I finally broke down and bought a DIY board since no breaks were available for anything I owned... and then they go and finally make the iPod 5th Gen and SixAxis jailbreaks. You guys suck lol!
Congrats to both teams for a job well done!
BTW, this is a majorly hilarious thing when you think about it... Sony disabled third-party USB devices because of the Jailbreak... now how are they going to combat having their own controllers doing the breaking? lmao
Considering it has a button used during the exploit process, he may simply have another chip wired into the controller, where it is only activated when the button is held down.
I'm neutral on this one. It could be real or fake. I'm leaning toward the real because I can't see someone wasting a $50 controller by putting a fake mod button on it.
The most important question is if the PS3 can distinguish from the controller when it is working in normal mode, or when it is hosting the exploit. If he simply has another chip inside, it could very well be possible that the PS3 see's the "exploit mode" as a completely different device. So for those thinking that this will prevent Sony from blocking your exploit device, I wouldn't be so sure. It would still most likely block the exploit when that button on the controller is pressed, but still function when the hack is not enabled.
This may be nothing more than a dev board inside a fancy PS3 controller, with a button to switch between the dev board and the PS3 chip.
