103w ago - Although we agree with homebrew PS3 developers including KaKaRoToKS and CrashSerious on the True Blue dongle, it appears the first PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) dongle clone has now surfaced called the JB-King from China.
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.
106w ago - Following up on the version 2.2 update, today True Blue (JB2) version 2.3 has arrived alongside some reverse-engineering updates including v2.3 UnPKG'd / UnSelf'd and the Payload from the PlayStation 3 Development Wiki below.
From the ReadMe File: True Blue Dongle Update v2.3
How to update:
1. Make sure your PS3 is running the True Blue "3.55-Dongle" CFW (custom firmware)

107w 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.
Nope, completely software based.. I won't say anything more than that for now to avoid them blocking it before release.
The "kind of" meant I need to fix NPDRM algo for it to run. And no, this will not allow backup managers. And no, it's not a CFW
1 - I won't share it until it's ready to use (still a bit complicated + some missing components), 2 - don't update if...
108w ago - Following up on the True Blue PS3 JB2 v2.2 Payload, today PlayStation 3 developers on the Wiki (linked above) have started a preliminary Q&A work-in-progress for hacking the True Blue (TB) PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) USB dongle.
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...
