x3JailBreak Shipping Tomorrow, Online Verification for Updates

700°
230w ago - A few days back we saw the x3JailBreak PS JailBreak clone in action, and today the PS3 modchip's official site (linked above) is updated stating that shipping will begin tomorrow and there will be an online verification for updates.

They've listed a number of new features, including account based updates (after verification, so clones don't get access to updates),
future expansion promise.

Realizing the existence of much cheaper homebrew hardware options, they're saying their hardwre is competitively priced to those (teensy++ etc).

Here's their update with the list of features, to quote:

•X3JailBreak will start shipping the 100 samples, starting 2moro(today ;p) (sep 3rd to sep 6th).
•Future updates will need a per user-copy basis (to make clones fail to get the updates ;p, which might get circumvented by open source hack methods anyway)
•X3jailbreak.com will be shipping our samples out to 100 selected requests starting Sept 3rd-Sept 6th and x3jailbreak are now taking pre-orders which will start shipping by the end of next week (Sept 10th-13th). Feel free to submit your pre-orders today.
•Our goal at x3jailbreak was to provide you as customers...

PS JailBreak PS3 Exploit Reverse Engineering is Detailed!

800°
230w 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

Intro

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...

PS JailBreak Backup Manager v1.1 Incoming and More!

1100°
230w ago - Today the PS JailBreak team have confirmed via xiaNaix (linked above) that an updated version 1.1 of the Backup Manager is coming soon which will include new features and tweaks.

Previously it was reported that the PS JailBreak delay was due to a component shortage, however, this was also clarified today, to quote:

"They would also like to clarify that the launch delay was not caused by a parts shortage as originally reported. They are finishing their retail packaging and finalizing the new software."

Finally, the PS JaiLBreak team are assisting Australian resellers who were recently a victim of an injunction by Sony, as follows:

"With the recent injunction in Australia, they have decided to stand behind their dealers and distributors with financial support. They have made a sizable donation to both OzMods and Quantronics to help support the cause!"
