PS JailBreak Tiny Clone & Android PSGroove Port in Development
Since the release of the PSGroove open-source PS JailBreak PS3 exploit there have been numerous clones and ports in the works to other devices, which now includes the JailBreak Tiny (dubbed PSGroove Buddy) and a WIP Android port.
xiaNaix of PSX-Scene.com (linked above) reports via TiaoWiki.com that the JailBreak Tiny is under development by the TIAO community, who state the following about the project, to quote:
"We are working hard on the Jailbreak Tiny (a.k.a PSGroove Buddy) for your PS3. You can install open-source firmware (PSGroove etc.) to this USB dongle, which will enable you to run homebrews on your PS3!
We haven't decided on the price, but as usual, it won't be expensive and our price is always SHIPPED price! It will have diygadget/TIAO logo."
An Android PSGroove port is also in the works by Netzke on his Blog and qberty1337.
To quote on their progress thus far: "I'm currently working on a android port of PSj. You can follow my progress on. Look me up on twitter and blogspot. Currently the only real requirement is that your phone be rooted and running an android OS.
Also this is not limited to just phones. You can also use an android tablet. Or any other device you have that runs Android os. It appears to work on my netbook as well. I'm very close to producing a fully working bug free app for this."
"Lol I just got my Android to mimic the 6 port hub. Stage 1 Complete. Stage 2 done. Thinking If I should use PSGroove or OpenPSJailbreak as a base. for stage 3."
Also, spunks310 let us know HERE that another N900 Port is in development as well.
Finally, ps2chiper and atommann from the Shenzhen Linux user group announced they are working on a low-cost and open-source PS JailBreak hardware design, as follows:
"We saw the news for PSGroove and I convinced atommann to use his avr skills to design open hardware for PSGroove to stop pirates from profiting. Our goal is to sell the open hardware at cost to anybody who wants it.
Here is a alpha design created on geda (with an update HERE and both Original and Revised code). We will let you guys know when the final design is done and the price seems to be around 3 dollars each."
More PlayStation 3 News...
I've read some news that Android port is indeed fake. Who knows who knows...
This is amazing, Keep up the good work guys. Just hoping someone will release a Symbian version for my N95 8GB, that would be brilliant.
That's great news, especially about the at-cost open source hardware solution. I'm importing the files into PCB now to have a look. Afterwards, I will export it so that Windows users can use it (gEDA is a Linux/Mac-only solution)
I wonder if i'll work on iDroid.
*iDroid is a priject that port android OS to the iphone and itouch.
I'm running it since it was released, nd it's working very well, and of curse it's rooted.
the devices that iDrod support for now is: iphone 2G, iPhone 3G and iTouch 1G.
but i'll probably use the BlackCatUSB, as I already ordered it.
Sorry kipper, I just tried importing it into Eagle with no success, invalid data in the .sch. I'll have to install gEDA on my Debian box and export it from there.
