PS3Key Team Release 2.1 Update Open Hex Edition PS3 JailBreak

Sponsored Links
221w ago - Today the PS3Key Team have released their 2.1 update Open Hex Edition PS3 JailBreak to use with generic devices like the Teensy or the PIC and have sent out an email that I received.

Download: PS3Key 2.1 Update Open Hex Edition

To quote: "We've just released v2.1 of the PS3Key firmware in two different flavors...

One is the easy-to-use .upd file which you can use with any genuine PS3Key using the PS3Key Updater Application for Windows.

The other is an 'open' HEX file which is designed for use on generic devices other than PS3Key dongles.

The v2.1 firmware update includes all of the features in v2 and also fixes a few other minor bugs."

New features in v2.1:

1. A series of minor bug fixes.

New features in v2:

1. Now supports peek/poke commands.
2. Backups on USB HDD can now run without an original game in the BluRay drive.
3. Works with Backup Manager 2.

Well not as hot news as the 3.50 JB rumour, but good news for ps3key owners! Quote from their site: ps3key.com/en/news/
We have received many emails regarding "rumours" of a PS3Key downgrader capable of downgrading PS3 firmware from v3.50 to v3.41 using the "JIG" method. We can confirm that those rumours are indeed true! Stay tuned for more news in the next few days!

Also EcliPS3 states the following: eclipsemod.com/news.php
We are proud to announce that in a couple of days we will release the new Frmware V1.4 for Eclipse. Among the various improvements we will add into the firmware the possibility to downgrade the PS3 from Firmware 3.50 to lower firmware 3.41 or 3.15.

I have a PSJB that is the clone of this chip I believe and I cannot get anything to work. It has 2 leds that stay on all the time instead of red for fail and green for go on cold boot. my system is 80gig CECH-E01 with 3.41 and 100GB upgraded HDD.

I have tried all the video tutorials but am starting to think I have a dud? I tried updating the flash chip on win 7 x64 Ultimate and it says flash success every time even when it is unplugged first, which leads me to believe the psdowngrade is fake or the driver for it is.

I was going to get a p3key but you guys are having some complaints about it too so what would you recommend. I want to downgrade it back to 2.70, and also update to 3.41 for snes9x for PS3, that is IF I can get it to work. If not then Ill stay on 2.70 if I can ever downgrade it. I do not play online at all so I don't want to lose linux!!!

I only updated to use a better version of the emulator and may be a custom GUI. I want to Keep HDCD support, linux support, my vanity "PlayStation3" game boot, and get rid of that 3.00 GUI which I hate with a Dying passion!!

Yes I am eccentric a little but I like the scene as much or more so than everybody else here to. So if anyone of you fine PS3news members can point me in the right direction I would be most grateful. Thanks and +Respect to those that contribute to the scene!

my psjailbreak is not recognized properly by win xp. I can't update it without the right driver.
