If this eventually gets ported to both Android and iPhone based phones, then that will also help a lot.
At 42% the cost of a new slim 120GB console (which is 300 bucks on walmart.com), this "modchip" is rather pricey. Their going to need to prove their support for keeping the hack working if I'm going to shell out over a 100 bucks. I don't want a 100$ paperweight, ya know?
UPDATE: I have received word on psjailbreak’s NEW lower wholesale price breakdown, expect lower prices at your favorite mod retailer soon.
50pcs USD 29.50
100pcs USD 29.00
250pcs USD 28.50
500pcs USD 27.50
1000pcs USD 26.50
If true, then these prices just means they're aware that they can't stop other people copying their dongles a la psgroove. It also probably means they know their backup manager is going to be cracked to be used with any dongle, or that it won't be able to tell the difference between their dongle and any other one.
If they want to compete in the market full of clones they have to lower their prices around 50$ and people will definately buy it.
has anyone actually received their psJB usb stick yet ? (the real one, not some clone)
My reseller i ordered from has gone unresponsive...
I am dissapointed in this whole lack luster customer service experience from a mod chip provider that has done so well in the past.
Well, i ordered mine from discoazul (for 99€). Today they apologized for the delay by giving me a 10€ voucher for my next order.
but i still didn't get my dongle
I haven't been able to contact their sales team or anyone representing PSJailbreak in the past few days. It's like just disappeared...
Seems to me that the resellers at the very least could just send updates to inform of delays or problems, offer alternatives etc...
seeing as most of the resellers are now listing dev USB AVR devices etc...
but nope, nothing... just a dead end.
