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.

172w ago - Yesterday we reported on news of the first x3JailBreak PS JailBreak PS3 USB ModChip clone, and today it is being labeled as a possible fake with a second clone dubbed the PS3Key Mod surfacing.
Similar to the x3JailBreak site, the Dutch Web site PS3Key.com lacks specific details on the alleged clone, so only time will tell if it is legitimate or not.
They do state, however, to quote: "Good news everyone! Our mad scientist has confirmed that getting into the console is as simple as pretending to be a USB hub! It doesn't look like this is going to take any more than a few weeks!"
According to Nyleveia.com (linked above), x3JailBreak is nothing more than the internals of a generic or branded-clone USB flash drive when compared to PS JailBreak which they say likely utilizes an Alcor AU6984 flash storage controller.
To quote: "Both devices follow a similar layout with a bank of SMT's leading to a crystal oscillator then a flash controller and lastly the SMD (Activity light). On the lower device, the flash memory itself is located on the underside of the PCB, as the many vias present in the PCB around the flash controller indicate.
172w ago - A few days back we shared the first two reviews on the new PSJailBreak PS3 USB ModChip, and today a third arrives from MainStreamEditing.co.uk (linked above).
Below the review is split into two videos, demonstrating the PS Jailbreak USB stick which backs up PS3 games onto a PlayStation 3 HDD to play.
Finally, those seeking to get a PS JailBreak PS3 ModChip may wish to hold off as this coming week PSJailBreak x3JailBreak clones are reported to be arriving ranging from only $20-$40 each... or better yet, wait for a 100% FREE scene solution which undoubtedly is also on the way.

173w ago - This weekend the official PS JailBreak site (linked above) has resurfaced after being down with a warning to avoid clone PS3 ModChips, and they have provided an Authorized Dealer List to help potential buyers purchase their PS JailBreak.
According to their banner, imitators and cheap Chinese knockoffs are already a threat to their PS JailBreak sales.
While we won't condone purchasing a PS JailBreak PS3 ModChip (official or clone) as we feel waiting a few weeks for a FREE PS3 scene solution is the smarter way to go, below is their list of current resellers around the globe for those interested along with the official distribution pricing.
It's interesting to note they intend to remove any reseller who sells below the guidelines provided. Additionally, PS3JailBreak.com reports that Dave at promods.com.au confirmed this price fixing and went on to state the minimum order is $22,000.00.
