PS3Jig v1.00 PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig Dongle for Sony PSP


Sponsored Links
181w ago - On this Super Bowl Sunday Brandon Wilson has released PS3Jig v1.0, which is a PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig Dongle downgrader for the Sony PSP handheld.

He has confirmed the PS3 downgrader / Service Mode Jig PSP port can be used for <= FW3.55 homebrew and works on 1001 5.50 GEN-D CFW. For those interested, IndyColtsFan84 has also made a PS3Jig Downgrade Tutorial for PS3 Firmware 3.50 and 3.55.

To quote from his page: PS3Jig is a homebrew program for the PSP that emulates the official Sony "jig" stick for entering Factory/Service mode. All you need to do is attach a USB cable between your PS3 and PSP, run the program, and turn on your PS3, just like any other downgrade/service mode method.

AS OF THIS WRITING, THERE IS NO WAY TO EXIT FACTORY/SERVICE MODE ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56, SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE!

Keep in mind that I'm not a PSP developer, and that I know very little about homebrew for it; my ability to answer questions about how to run it and troubleshoot any issues is severely limited.

This application is open source and has no license attached to it, so you're free to do whatever you want with it; but please don't slap your name on it and call it your own, it's just rude.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the main purpose of this?
To enter Factory/Service Mode on your PS3 using your PSP. This is typically used to downgrade your PS3's firmware version to something that supports homebrew/backups, or you can use it to unbrick some PS3s from a firmware flash gone bad.

Will this cause any permanent damage to my PSP?
Not that I know of, but don't blame me if it does.

Do I need a special cable for this?
No, you just need a standard A<->mini-B USB cable. Among many other uses, it's the cable used to charge/sync PS3 controllers. You have one of these.

What firmware version does my PS3 need to be on for this to work?
As of this writing, you need to be on firmware version 3.55 or earlier. DO NOT USE IT ON FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 OR HIGHER UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE.

What firmware version does my PSP need to be on for this to work?
Honestly, I don't know. This requires kernel mode, so as of this writing (and to the best of my knowledge), version 6.35 or lower. It runs on my PSP-1001 5.50 GEN-D.

I get an error when I run it on the PSP! What's wrong?
I really don't know.

How do I get this on my PSP?
The same way you do with any other PSP homebrew. Do some reading and/or googling.

It didn't work! What's wrong?!
Try it multiple times. I have noticed through a hardware USB analyzer that sometimes the PSP doesn't send the jig challenge response correctly, despite the PSP saying it did.

Will this work on the PSP Slim? 2000? 3000?
I honestly don't know.

It locked up my PSP when I tried to exit! Why?
I honestly don't know. Pull the battery, re-insert it, and turn it back on.

What tools did you use to compile/build this?
PSPSDK.

What dongle ID does this use?
0xAAAA. It can easily be changed and re-compiled in the source. I didn't provide a UI for it because it's unlikely anyone will ever need to change it.

I thought you said this couldn't be done! And yet here it is, prick. What's with the lying?
I said you couldn't implement the PSGroove/PSJailbreak exploit on it, and that's still true. Emulating the Sony official jig stick for Factory/Service Mode is different, and the PSP can do it. I didn't see anyone else doing it, so I did.

you can't use this and transform cex -> dex because you can't access to scei server !

This exactly showing what most of the dev on the actual PS3 scene using. Cex-Dex it's easy for dev even PS3 users if the following method is used correctly

Mellss what did you expected ? the SCE tools are big enough actually for most of dev that play with that and lie to the PS3 users, also release stuff that follow SDK/Graf works

If you want to make a emu PS1/PSP/PS3 for PS3 -> use a self editor (the emu = no sign) that can be load under release mode and configure that it can be launch on every PS3...

About the CEX-DEX using LV2diag, first you need to patch the ID of the PS3 (you can even use a firmware debug) patch the system/ID that follow a debug -> QA Flag your PS3 -> Software update debug ON
Launch Service mode/Factory mode with special PUP + Lv2diag that allow to update -> FW Debug -> Install the Special PUP that allow to be on debug -> Payload that can allow to reboot without crash ->
Reupdate the PS3 with a firmware debug

Most of the tools is available, only the payload that allow after the update to reboot into debug mode
