Send in the clones... Personally I can't fathom how anyone would bother even trying to get one of these at this point.
Even assuming you can find a group that's legitimate.. and isn't backordered for 6 months.. and isn't shut down by a legal injunction.. what do you really get for your money?
A dongle that can only perform one function, so it'll just be hanging ugly and awkward off your PS3 forever.. much smarter to get any of the myriad of standalone devices that actually perform real functions and just happen to *also* be capable of hacking the PS3.
As long as you're spending money on this, you might as well get something for it, as well as avoiding the headaches of the fakes and the legal issues of the real Jailbreaker companies.
