• Support boot HDD game without BD.
• Supports any available type of firmware for the PS3. PSGroove, PSFreedom, and so on.
• Can load directly PSGroove .hex files and Payloads .BIN files.
• Can be removed once started. No need to have the USB key always into your PS3!
• Does not break your warranty seal.
• Compatible with all PS3 models, both Fat and Slim.
• Supports all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA.
• Optimized and enhanced code (most competing products simply use available code).
• Disabled forced software updates and will never brick your console.
• Supports most games and homebrew applications.
• Easy-to-use software for backing up, managing, and playing games from External USB Hard Drive.
• Playing games from HDD is much more enjoyable, benefiting from greatly enhanced seek and loading times.

Finally, it comes with the PS JailBreak2 Upgrader v1.2 which features:
• Updated import engine and firmware. The import engine has now the ability to import a wider range of hex files; basically any PSGroove or PSFreedom based hex file for any board type can now be imported (both AVR and PIC based boards are supported).
• Official PS JailBreak 2 firmware still only supports FW 3.41 but with the right hex files you can now test the PS JailBreak 2 hardware with older PS3 firmware versions (e.g. 3.01, 3.10, 3.15, etc).
