PS JailBreak Backup Manager v1.1 Incoming and More!


Sponsored Links
231w ago - Today the PS JailBreak team have confirmed via xiaNaix (linked above) that an updated version 1.1 of the Backup Manager is coming soon which will include new features and tweaks.

Previously it was reported that the PS JailBreak delay was due to a component shortage, however, this was also clarified today, to quote:

"They would also like to clarify that the launch delay was not caused by a parts shortage as originally reported. They are finishing their retail packaging and finalizing the new software."

Finally, the PS JaiLBreak team are assisting Australian resellers who were recently a victim of an injunction by Sony, as follows:

"With the recent injunction in Australia, they have decided to stand behind their dealers and distributors with financial support. They have made a sizable donation to both OzMods and Quantronics to help support the cause!"

I have no doubt someone can RE the backup loader to unlock it for use w/ psgroove.. but why would the psjb people give it out today when no one has their device yet? seems silly I'm starting to doubt that any PSJB will make it to resellers.

Last Friday they confirmed they were shipped to resellers. As of today at 2pm EST , none of the Canadian Resellers received it.


I'm just going by what they have in their news section of their site, which says it would be released on or before the 15th.

It's already 1PM 16th now (USA East Coast), so either they had some problems with their "solution" or they lied to get more customers to buy their product.

If they are scared to release the update because the device may not be in everyone's hands yet, then they must be scared that it will be reversed to PSFreedom/PSGroove. They already have the old version on the site, so why not the new version?

At this point it doesn't look like spending $120 is a good investment in the official product, until they can prove the "future support/updates" they love to use to justify their price.

They must really be ex-sony exployees considering they offer release dates that get pushed back If you don't know when an update will be ready, then don't give a release date!

Whether they like it or not, 1.1 will be in the wild so they might as well just come off it. Ironic that individuals who profit from a device that enables copyright violation (among other things) think they can protect their own software from being "violated" for open-source use!

Software which, I might add, was made using sony's copywrited sdk! (AFAIK) Sony couldn't stop the scene, they sure as hell can't either.

I was hoping for an update that allowed dual layer discs.

I'm hoping it is today because I want a more compatible Backup Manager!


Well, presuming they're going to release it on the 15th, they can't be talking about China time, since it's already the 16th in most/all of China. Of all the reasonably populated places in the world the earliest time right now is 7:45AM on the 15th (in Hawaii, to be precise), and in the majority of America we're still looking at about half a day left of the 15th.

Regardless, I don't have particularly high hopes that we'll see 1.1 come today.
