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


Sponsored Links
186w 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 are my Hero nabnab

no seriously, really great work dude I'm so much impressed that someone started again with this stuff. Really believed the scene would die. And no just one year past after geohot's leak that would be really nice if we would get each year something like that

Just to noticed: I'm one of these person's who have an flasher (still in original packaged but I have one )

Before want to load a LV2kernel.self correctly, you also need to patch a certain sprx, just in case

Nabnab it's bad and i'm sad to lose you but most things you say will not have any effect. The average user believe them and is not able to use his brain. So you know the private irc chat with real developers and not that scene donkeys where i am and then users like sanctumslayer post some things like in the other thread and believe that we just talk and dono understand what those so called scene devs really do and that they fake the whole scene.

But i will stop to talk about work and give them others a possability to steal work. If something is found or done i will release and slap the whole scene.

You can not even ask for help and tell some one on what you work in case of this scene fakers will steal work and put it on there way how good they are and to get more fame and as i said the average user don't understand and then diss the one they really try to help.

I've said it already in the other thread, they have the last months nothing done in case of drm dongles, no help of them, dean told that he is not working on mm anymore and that it is not of him and after we have told all this things and come closer to give the whole scene something good they quick release stuff and dean come back just to not get unmasked and as i said the average user just eat all that bs and attack with not knowing what is really going on.

I'm begging you don't release your infos. For what ? They just attack and call to use we only talk but dont deliver so for what you want to release your findings ? But its up to you
