172w ago - Yesterday we reported news that the official PS JailBreak site warned of clone PS3 modchips, and today it appears the first PSJailBreak clone has surfaced dubbed x3JailBreak.
According to several IRC users who mailed them, x3JailBreak dongle clones will be selling beginning next week for $20-$40 each.
While there aren't many other details available on the official www.x3JailBreak.com site yet, below is a rough translation from French site Logic-Sunrise (linked above) on these new PS JailBreak PlayStation 3 modchip clones.
To quote: "That is now three days since the announcement of the hack the PS3 has been proven to create excitement on the Web. When everyone realized that the long awaited hack console Nippon boiled down to a dongle with a USB output (at a price a bit high), the question on everyone's lips was 'is there an alternative ?, clones... like the linker?'
The answer is do not wait and made positive, in fact already found on the Web advertisements for the first clones, it was still very little information on the selling price of these new jailbreak for PS3 or when they are available.
What is certain is that for the moment, no team has revealed the list of components necessary for its implementation so that the most talented in electronic solders and can make their dongle HomeMade."

cheap clones will be nice but i think the easiest thing once the device is RE'd will be for someone to emulate the jig using a computer (laptop, netbook even) hooked up usb to usb with the PS3 that does the work of the chip on the PSJB..
