It is an FTP Server for the PS3, with it, on a retail with your choice of "hack" to enable unsigned code it allows:
• Full Read/Write access to all of "dev_hdd0" (including save areas, games, VM etc)
• Full Read/Write access to "dev_flash2" and "dev_flash3"
• Full Read/Write access to connected usb devices
• Full Read access to "dev_flash"
• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"
Connect with your choice of FTP client - Prefered is the old "ftp" from the command line, however Filezilla seems to work, allowing only one connection, and disabling PASV support.
Furthermore, the Server does not support some commands (like rename, of all things!) so make sure what you do counts!
Use the IP shown on the screen - make sure to have your net connection up and running before hand (wired is so much faster)
170w ago - Earlier today we reported on the PSJailBreaker clone, with another surfacing now dubbed the PS3Break PS3 modchip alongside a video, and the PS3Key team have posted a few internal pictures of their upcoming PlayStation 3 modchip as well.
In what appears to be a battle of the clones, the x3JailBreak clone team have stated the PS3Break clone is fake, to quote:
"Today, we have seen online on many websites are talking about ps3break.com. This team is sending our fake email and saying it is our new x3 brand. This is not true and we are not associated to ps3break.com at all. Any orders that come from this website, we will not support it!"
According to PSGroove, PS3Key has updated their Facebook with internal pics (below) and a recommended retail price of $49 USD.
The official PS3Break site (linked above) states the following on their USB device:

Today more PSFreedom / PSGroove ports of the PS JailBreak PS3 exploit have surfaced, with news of a TI-84 Plus/SE calculator port incoming too!
pdkiller has posted an HTC/Open Desire 4.0.4 PSFreedom port complete with guide HERE for those interested.
170w ago - Update: L-S seems to have been misled, as knocturnal81points out the pictures actually appear to be of a $35 PSJailBreak clone called PSJailBreaker versus the original PS JailBreak USB PS3 modchip.
Today French site Logic-Sunrise (linked above) has posted some pictures of the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip final retail version, which comes just hours before an update to the PSGroove open-source PS JailBreak PlayStation 3 exploit is expected.

171w ago - Earlier today we reported on the open-source PS JailBreak PS3 exploit from Mathieulh's PlayStation 3 hacking team dubbed PSGroove, and as promised the reverse-engineering details are now available linked above and posted below, as follows:
Analysis of the PSJailbreak Exploit
The PSJailbreak dongle is a modchip for the PlayStation 3 that allows users to backup and play games off the harddrive. Unlike the modchips of the Previous generation, or the modchips so far for the Xbox360 and Wii, this modchip simply plugs into the USB port on the front of the PS3, avoiding the need for complex soldering and voiding of your warranty.
As the time of writing this document, the final PSJailbreak has not been released, but a number of samples were given out and at least one fell into the hands of someone who owned a USB sniffer.
This analysis of the exploit is based on those USB sniffer logs, issues encountered during the development of the opensource PSGroove version of the exploit and a number of educated guesses. It will probably be updated as new information comes in.
The initial analysis by gamefreax.de suggested that it was a Stack...
