224w ago - Today I received two PS3 USB JailBreak 2.5" Slim External Enclosures from PS3USBJailBreak.com to review, one with a 500GB HDD & one without.

When the DHL truck arrived today i was excited, the samples were finally here! The packaging wasn't the best but it was acceptable.

The enclosures were in a thin plastic box that was then wrapped in bubble wrap with about 2 miles of tape wrapped around to hold the bubble wrap. Wasn't pretty but it worked!

I must say this is a very nice product, in a nutshell it is a PS3 USB Jailbreak Adapter (AT64S) with a 500GB Seagate HDD (upgradable) inside an slim external enclosure. It will jailbreak your ps3 & store your games all on the same device. The best feature in my opinion is that it comes preloaded with 40+ PS3 Games! Games like GOWIII, Dante's Inferno, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Soul Caliber IV, NBA Jam, NBA2k11, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, Mirrors Edge. The list goes on & on!

The Web site printed on the enclosure doesn't feature this new product on their site yet, but it does have the essential information and software needed to flash the built in PS3USBJailbreak.

Surprisingly, the enclosure came pre-flashed with HermesV4b 3.50 Spoofing payload. The flashing software was included on the HDD, along with some backup managers like Open Backup Manger & Gaia. The package did not include any kind of instructions about the setup & usage of this device, but all the information a person needs about flashing, installing PKGs, backing up games, etc is on PS3USBJailbreak.com

This product can be used as a Jailbreak Device W/O the HDD attached so the HDD can be considered optional I guess. When the device is initially plugged into a PC it will be recognized as HDD. To program the device with a new hex, you will need to press & hold a very small button while plugging in the usb cable. It is then in a programmable state & can be flashed with ANY hex no matter if AMTEL or PIC based. It's a bit of a hassle but after the first 2-3 times it gets easier.

This task is much easier when it is outside of the case and the button can be pressed more easily. The procedure for jailbreaking a PS3 with this device is no different than any other JB device. Turn off PS3 power switch, plug in device, flip the switch ON, Hit power, then eject. You know the drill!

That about wraps it up i believe. I would like to thank you PS3 News for the opportunity to review this sample product. I hope that in the future I can be called upon to write reviews for new sample products.

If anyone has any questions about the product, please reply in the thread and I will do my best to answer them.

Overall I'll give this device a 7 out of 10!

I just want to say great review, the HDD with 40+ games if they're selling it that's pirating and sony does have a case there. Don't expect this around too much longer, black market maybe internet no. (oh yea the second smaller USB isn't really needed unless HDD starts stuttering for loss of power)

yes, i've also seen those before. they are all usually shipped from China, where no govt. officials give two craps about Sony.

but yea, its just sad if people started buying these units. IMO, i wouldn't give a damn if you privately modded for your mom, dad, brother, sister, grand ma, auntie or uncle and pass them some of your back ups, but this is plain mass-stealing rendering the entire PS3 library to be worth only a few GBs...

(and most of the time, no gamer can finish even 100 ps 3 games in their entire lifetime, they think they can but they won't be able to since there will always be new toys to play)

Some work without a disc in the drive, some don't but that is nothing new.

40+ preloaded games huh?? really now? it is company like these that give the homebrew community a bad name. These things, are free, companies profiteering from their torrent downloads are pathetic.

Every game i have tried has loaded just fine, haven't gotten around to testing all preloaded games yet. But the 10-12 games i tested loaded just fine. I didn't have to do any formatting. Plug & Play all the way.

I have some question about preloaded game on HDD, It can run preloaded games when you plug external HDD, as you know normally external HDD we must format external HDD as FAT32 and it have limitation as file must be greater than 4 GB per file.

SK, Boss is how i found out. then a few days later i saw an advertisement.

I tried 3 different hubs. 2 port, 3 port and 4. No go on PC or PS3.

One of the very few to be pre-flashed, it seems... but kinda dumb that it can't be used with a hub and takes TWO usb ports, thats all i have on my PS3! kind of a late comer though, with being so close to CFW... already have a 3.55 CFW PoC now.
