PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak Clone PS3 ModChip Review


Sponsored Links
202w ago - Here is my PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip review, which I got from www.PS3Break.com (linked above).

Shipping info:

The package was sent with DHL Express mail. Which means it can be all over the world in just 3-5 business days. The box was sealed with a lot of tape and the content comments were a little funny:

•1x USB card reader PHAT usb

The package came through the customs without being opened or withdrawn. Payment is via CC and Paypal. If I have to believe were it is shipping from it comes from Hong Kong.

So I would say shipping is a big 9/10.

Package info:

The box around the PS3Break looks very similar to the PSJailbreak box. The sticker says PS3Break V1.1 (was the newest version, there is a version 1.2 coming soon!). There is also a "truth inquiry" sticker. There is a code on it and when I check it on the website it should say LEGIT.

When you open the box you'll find the PS3Break + a strap. It comes without any guaranty/manual enclosed. The manual can be found on the website.

It gets a 7/10. Minor here is the lack of a manual.

PS3Break unit itself:

The unit looks very strong and has an aluminum case. When you hold it the first thing you'll notice is the "upgrade" key. This is needed to flash the stick with a new HEX or Firmware. When I insert the PS3Break it fits like a glove. No problems there.

I tested this on a phat. When I power the PS3 up and immediately hit the eject button there is a small disco show inside the unit. Then it lights up green and your good to go. Although you need to power down the PS3 totally or else it will not work!

8/10 Down side is that it's very slippy...

PS3Break working itself:

When I started the unit it worked like a charm. I installed the AVCHD and Game Manager (by Dean). This also works like a charm. Backuping Start the Party took about 10 minutes. Running the game also gives no problems.

8/10 Again. The lack of a manual is still a - here.

Overall:

Very nice and satisfying product. Only down side is they already made an "thirth GEN" device. So I have got the idea I am having an old stick soon here.

The review math:

9 + 7 + 8 + 8 = 32

32 / 40 * 100% = 80 total score.

The PIC version CANNOT be updated at this time. unfortunately they need to compile something... I to have the 1.1 and it is PIC and is upgradable as i'm on Hermes v3 + Retail pkg + updates.

No go on Hermes 4 or 4b yet. Litereally, the HEX is available to everyone but the break.

I purchased a Teensy that is arriving this week so I don't have to deal with there slow updates...

So for any PS3Break users on PIC version, your S.O.L. until the break team releases something. Atmel peeps are fine.. but that was a low batch so consider yourself lucky because it was all PIC afterwards. break 1.1 is definitely upgradable (pending there is a HEX to update too) lol

hi B4rtj4h, so sorry for asking this question again.. but how did you update to hermes v4 on a ps3break v1.1? i've tried all the available hex illness, picgroov, pic18f2455 and even the link that you gave.. hexed my board tons of time and it wont light up after i click program/verify..

but if i use the hex supplied with ps3break it blinks alot and it works..could you provide a few steps on how did you manage to hex hermes v4 on the ps3break? thanks , i think alot of ps3break users are eager to update to hermes v4..

No, I mean where did you buy it from. What site. Ps3break does not have a sales page to sell these dongles. I thought they only sold to distributors. Unless you meant you purchased bulk for resale.

The only reason I ask, is I too bought 2 of these, and am waiting for the delivery. But on the site, under the truth enquiry, it clearly shows a picture of a PIC chip and not an atmel.

(please keep in mind, I am not questioning your honesty, but rather the confusion of misinformation given.)
