PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak Clone PS3 ModChip Review

Sponsored Links
206w 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The package came through the customs without being opened or withdrawn.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.


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.

Its not so hard lol -.-

1. Start the flash program
2. push upgrade with pen/sharp object
3. open the hex
4. push Program/verify
5. When it says verify started and it "freezes" shut down the program
6. Profit

I guess the app can't read the VERIFY=TRUE signal from the stick and it stays in a loop.

man..upgrading ps3break v1.1 is starting to piss me of, first everytime that i want to upgrade, after i select the hex file (ps3break_v1.4b) and press program/verify the erase starts and complete then programming starts and complete then Verify runs and verify starts and puff, it freezes, the bar is full but the program dont let me do nothing and verify started is stuck... everytime.

And the best part is to start all over i must plug off an in again, last time i did that the cover of the dongle comes out and now i have 3 pieces! one the cover , another the board! i can see the interior and the upgrade boton jumped out! crap...

How did you manage to upgrade yours? step by step.

Was the upgrade trouble free??

Upgrading was sort of without problems. Had to erase it multiple times and it the program stopped a few times at VERIFYING...

But overall it worked perfect ^^
