172w ago - According to the folks over at PS3JailBreak.com (linked above), an image marked Titan JailBreak was recently uncovered on the official PS JailBreak site's Web server.
Yesterday we reported that the PS JailBreak launch was going to be delayed approximately a week, and now some are speculating as to whether Titan JailBreak is an official PS JailBreak clone or simply a name while the PS3 modchip was still in development.
To quote: "An image found on psjailbreak's official site shows the name "Titan Jailbreak" It is unknown exactly why this banner is on the official site. Could this be the name of an upcoming official clone of the PSJailbreak?
Perhaps due to the component shortage earlier reported, the manufacturer has decided to make a rebranded clone with different components. This is purely speculation but it would make sense."
172w ago - Today the x3JailBreak site has been updated stating that they have taken over 100 requests for free x3JailBreak samples and are in the process of shipping them out, and the PS JailBreak launch has been delayed.
Additionally, Logic-Sunrise.com has confirmed the x3JailBreak PS3 modchips are in production, so those who do not receive a sample can rest assured they are infact legitimate and coming soon for around 49 €.
CJPC will be testing out the x3JailBreak PS3 modchip here when it arrives, and if all goes well the rumor of the x3JailBreak clone being labeled a fake will be debunked.
Those who pre-ordered the PSJailBreak may have to wait an extra week to receive it, according to xiaNaix of PSX-Scene (linked above) who is close to the the team a shortage of components is being blamed for the launch delay.
To quote: "A shortage of components has forced the delay of the product's launch. There is no longer an official date for shipping to begin but the delay is expected to be anywhere from 3 days to as...
172w ago - Previously we shared Spanish, French, and English PS JailBreak PS3 Reviews, and today we have a few videos from Dutch site DynaModz (linked above) testing the PSJailBreak USB modchip on their PlayStation 3 console.
Below are the videos and their feedback on the new PS JailBreak PS3 modchip, to quote roughly translated:
"The sample has arrived in a beautiful gift box with a USB stick, unfortunately no manual (they will be forgotten).
The features we are most striking and important are this product:
• The PS JailBreak works with every PlayStation 3 model on the market (FAT or SLIM).
• Backups of games, both on the internal HDD and external HDD made and loaded.
• Works with all existing PS3 games.
• Supports homebrew.
• Supports the PlayStation 3 in all regions (USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA).
• Upgradeable via PC and support for any more options.
Importantly, to our knowledge the PS Jailbreak only works on a PlayStation 3 with firmware 3.41. We do not know if the PS are Jailbreak will work after a firmware update for the PlayStation 3.
• PlayStation 3 with firmware 3.41 installed (this goes for the sample we received)....
172w ago - A few days back the PS JailBreak folks warned buyers about less expensive clone PS3 modchips, including the x3JailBreak and the PS3Key USB modchip, and today they sent out a wave of warning e-mails to those who pre-ordered the device not to update their PS3 Firmware beyond version 3.41 until it is confirmed safe to do so.
TQCast.com (linked above) confirms receiving one of these such e-mails, and reports it as containing the following notice, to quote:
"Just a friendly update email and some advice for you over the coming days and weeks.
While PS Jailbreak team have told us it should be possible to support future firmware versions on the PS3, it's is not guaranteed, they will need to access any newer firmwares than 3.41 and if needed release an update for the PS Jailbreak to support the newer firmwares.
So we wanted to give you all some advice that if a system update is released for the PS3 in the coming days or before you receive your PS Jailbreak which blocks system...
