166w ago - Today PSGroove via French site Logic-Sunrise.com has posted that the PS JailBreak Cloner x3Max (forerly known as x3JailBreak) is now offering what's called the x3Switch for the PS3 Slim.
To quote: "The x3Max team has noticed an inconvenience PS3 Slim users are facing. Unlike PS3 Fat users, Slim users must unplug their cord every time they want to JailBreak their console.
This is due to the lack of an on off switch on the back of Slim models. However, that inconvenience is eliminated with the arrival of the x3Switch.
The x3Switch is a small device with an on-off switch, that plugs into your PS3 Slim and your power cord. This allows the user to turn off their Slim, prior to JailBreaking, without the need to unplug the cord.
The product is going on sale for a suggested retail price of $19.90 and is shipping to retailers now."

Ok, I could care less of the price can anyone tell me where to buy this? I like the sleek looks of my PS3 slim. And the surge protector sucks as it resets everything and I don't have the room for another. Besides mine comes with me a lot and this is so much more convenient. It was one of my gripes about the slim when I got it as my daughter can turn it on and leave it on for hours without me knowing.
I tried 2 power switches and kept failing (booted normally, unknown USB device is plugged in). I'm thinking that the surge protector's stored power isn't allowing it to work. I dunno, any thoughts. I tried 2 power strips like 12 times or so each. Never achieved the hack, unplugged like always and it worked the first try.
