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


Sponsored Links
208w 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.

Nabnab thanks for the update. What I'm not entirely clear about is does this project relate to the highly touted team acid CFW or is this a separate project? It seems to me it's the latter. If so, how come not much new info about the team acid CFW that could play 3.60+.

Or is this psp jig project just too important to put on hold. I'm guessing it all related though. Writing this from my iPhone and just waking up. Sorry if some of it is not clear.

Thanks

Ok, thanks Nabnab for your quickly answer I tested this Jig on my PS3 cechg04 (256MB) on 3.66 OFW (with PS3JIG folder), and I've got a "nice" black screen LOL, but resetting PS3, it can back to normality...

Like i said, it's so confuse.

PS3jig is based on Factory/Servide mode program of BrandonW (using the source of this program to make my own stuff) but is not anymore related to the Factory/Service Mode

let's call that a new program that can exploit your PS3, i need to fix something and release a new version later with more explanation but this is to exploit All the PS3 up than 3.60+ also.

i can answer for sure and like i said to Natepig you don't gonna be stuck on a service mode because this don't put you on a service mode .

Nabnab, I have a PS3 on 3.66 OFW, and I can help you with my PSP 1004 (that is on 5.00 M33-6). But, I have a question of this: If I can put my PS3 in service mode, how can I do to put later that on normal mode? With this Jig-PSP can I downgrade my PS3 on 3.66 OFW to 3.55/3.41? My PS3 is CECHG 04 model (256MB) with 40GB of HDD.

Sorry for my English if I said any mistake (that I'm sure that I sayed some mistake's LOL), I'm from Spain, if you need some tester for test this experiment, you can contact with me. I've been tester in the past with other projects like CFW 3.55.

Guys last time now we say that: THIS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH SERVICE MODE !! IT'S A SYSCALL TEST NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS TO TIME !!

And the objective of it or for what a syscall can be used this will tell you google. [QUOTE]System calls can be roughly grouped into five major categories:

About or main goal we have told now for many times: KILL DRM DONGLES

How? Both put your PS3 retail into Debugger mode to be able to do stuff that a normal ps3 would say in human words: Huuu please what ? Man i dono understand you ?

But in Debugger mode the ps3 would say in human words: Yes Sir ! Im on my way, DONE ! Something else to do Sir !?

Hope that make it now clear for everyone

That is the problem, even if this could work on OFW 3.7+/4.00 & the PS3 go to the factory mode, you cannot get out from that mode !!! you'll need an E3-Flasher & an old dump. But if it's real & this work on new firmwares it will be a very very good progress.

SONY block using USB Dongles since the OFW 3.56 but who know may be it will work with the PSP or the PS-VITA (the day when we could launch unsigned code on it of course)

OK, it's clear now but tell us more about this test of syscall ?? what is your objectif ? what you want to do clearly ?

Thanks in advance nabnab

If you take Test4.0 with a PSP, this don't put you into a service mode, it's simply a syscall that the PS3 answer...

actually it's more than that because on the firmware 4.0, i try something different and the firmware 4.0 recognize the USB device as a device know (not anymore unknown device)
