Based on the pictures below, the JB-King dongle looks similar to the P3Go GT Break Clone PS3 ModChip, but like TB allows playing 3.6x+ PlayStation 3 games on FW 3.55 from normal BD-R discs and from the PS3 HDD.

126w ago - To follow-up on the previous article where Sony PlayStation 3 hacker KaKaRoToKS stated "A solution for 3.60+ will be available soon, so no worries - people just need to be patient" comes some more Tweets today on JailBreaking 3.73 PS3 Firmware.

Below are some of the recent announcement Tweets from KaKaRoToKS on JailBreaking PS3 3.73 Firmware, as follows:

  • I will reply.. but I didn't read... yes, file managers and FTP should work fine.
  • and I'm all for competition, no worries. I do this for fun, not for race or whatever. Also, 3.73 cfw is not possible
  • i dont know yet about emulators... All in good time. There s no rush
  • yes, that's the point, to run homebrew.. showtime should work fine. not tested yet.

  • 1 - I won't share it until it's ready to use (still a bit complicated + some missing components), 2 - don't update if...

True Blue (TB) PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) Q&A

Q: Is this possible on other dongles from the FW3.41 days like Blackcat and Teensy?
A: Dongles are bad and obsolete, mkay (once you have the key/algo, you don't need any dongle at all)

Q: Are they (TB team) just stealing the dev eboots?
A: First we thought that too but today the first TB game was released Dirt 3 and it's working and it isn't a dev eboot so it maybe is really worth...
