September 27, 2010 // 9:30 pm - Today PSGroove via French site has posted that the PS JailBreak Cloner x3Max (forerly known as x3JailBreak) is now offering what's called the x3Switch for the PS3 Slim.

To quote: "The x3Max team has noticed an inconvenience PS3 Slim users are facing. Unlike PS3 Fat users, Slim users must unplug their cord every time they want to JailBreak their console.

This is due to the lack of an on off switch on the back of Slim models. However, that inconvenience is eliminated with the arrival of the x3Switch.

The x3Switch is a small device with an on-off switch, that plugs into your PS3 Slim and your power cord. This allows the user to turn off their Slim, prior to JailBreaking, without the need to unplug the cord.

The product is going on sale for a suggested retail price of $19.90 and is shipping to retailers now."

Another update for x3Max users:
x3MAX Generic V1.1

This is a small fix to our generic hex loader, we found a bug where some of the newer hexes that have been released may not boot games correctly. Our V1.1 loader will resolve any such issues.

Installation Notes

- Run X3 Max Programming Tool V2
- Select Load Firmware and load in x3MAX_Generic_V1.1.bin
- Click program to flash your new Generic hex loader
- Be aware, when you program the new generic bin, you will need to reflash a new hex payload as well, so load your favorite hex payload and click program.
- Enjoy

stay tuned for more from the X3 Max Team!

X3 Programming Tool V2.00 is now available for x3Max owners, from the ReadMe file:
This version not only allows you to flash pre-compiled X3 Max firmwares as before, but now for the first time anywhere, our V2 update allows flashing of *any* hex file regardless of chipset. No longer will you need to wait around wondering when a payload for your chipset will be available.

Here is an update ( from InsideX3:
Attached is our latest available firmware for the X3Max, formerly known as the X3JailBreak. The firmware is compatible with all of the prototype units sent out a couple weeks ago.

Currently we're manufacturing our final version, which will be shipping to resellers next week. We look forward to having a review done by one of the admins or forum moderators here for an un-bias perspective.

We'll be announcing a couple of new features in the coming weeks as we begin to ship our final version. I know, every team/cloner says the same thing...

Lastly, we'd publicly like to thank Hermes for the work he's put in, you've done a remarkable job, if we can be of help, please get in touch.

Pretty sure most the cheap units are just designed to power off cd players and lamps via infrared.

the cheapest of cheap that I found was 1.3kw... then the £12 ones were like 3kw!

Unless your turning off kettles and fires you wont have any problems with these switches...

Ok, I could care less of the price can anyone tell me where to buy this? I like the sleek looks of my PS3 slim. And the surge protector sucks as it resets everything and I don't have the room for another. Besides mine comes with me a lot and this is so much more convenient. It was one of my gripes about the slim when I got it as my daughter can turn it on and leave it on for hours without me knowing.

I switch my Slim off from the power strip. No need to unplug from the back and wear out the AC port...

I tried 2 power switches and kept failing (booted normally, unknown USB device is plugged in). I'm thinking that the surge protector's stored power isn't allowing it to work. I dunno, any thoughts. I tried 2 power strips like 12 times or so each. Never achieved the hack, unplugged like always and it worked the first try.
