PS JailBreak Successfully Cloned by Mathieulh's PS3 Hacker Team

Sponsored Links
221w ago - Over the weekend the PS3 modchip known as PS JailBreak was examined, and today Mathieulh has made several Tweets (linked above) confirming that his PS3 hacker team have successfully cloned the PS JailBreak USB device.

Essentially this means the PS3 hack used to run PlayStation 3 game backups on a retail PS3 console was itself hacked, and according to Mathieulh details on the exploit used will be publically documented and available as soon as next week.

Those interested in acquiring the necessary hardware, specifically a Teensy ++ board or an AT90USBKEY, may want to check HERE for some handy links.

Below are some quotes from his recent Tweets, as follows:

"Someone from our group just successfully cloned the psjailbreak dongle. Going to improve the shell code soon.

We are not releasing anything, we didn't just rip things off, we know how it works, the clone is just a POC, we plan on documenting.

The exploit will be documented on the ps3wiki as soon as possible (we need to write up the whole article, will take a bit)

Buy an AT90USBKEY or Teensy board now and we'll have good news soon.

Right now as far as I know the (original clone) code has been ported to the Teensy ++ There is no ETA as to any other devices so far."

Teensy Key Features:

• USB can be any type of device
• AVR processor, 16 MHz
• Single pushbutton programming
• Easy to use Teensy Loader application
• Free software development tools
• Works with Mac OS X, Linux & Windows
• Tiny size, perfect for many projects
• Available with pins for solderless breadboard
• Very low cost & low cost shipping options

Even if it does not support playing ps3 games from hdd, can't you just use the backup manager from the psjailbreak to do that?

Well still nothing from him and his crew, that's not surprising at all.

I would love to have ps2 support, but like you said its way down the list for things I want. I have enough to keep me busy with current games.

I don't see why so many people want ps2 support... we need ps3 support first lol. If you want to play a ps2 game, just get a ps2 and swap magic or solder in a $20 modchip.

Well... PS and PS2 Backups would be a software thing, like the backup manager.. and not something to do with the dongle itself.

Also the same for NTFS support, a driver would need wrote for the ps3 to support NTFS, again nothing to do with the dongle...
