248w ago - Over the weekend the PS3 modchip known as PS JailBreak was examined, and today Mathieulh has made several Tweets (linked above) confirming that his PS3 hacker team have successfully cloned the PS JailBreak USB device.

Essentially this means the PS3 hack used to run PlayStation 3 game backups on a retail PS3 console was itself hacked, and according to Mathieulh details on the exploit used will be publically documented and available as soon as next week.

Those interested in acquiring the necessary hardware, specifically a Teensy ++ board or an AT90USBKEY, may want to check HERE for some handy links.

Below are some quotes from his recent Tweets, as follows:

"Someone from our group just successfully cloned the psjailbreak dongle. Going to improve the shell code soon.

We are not releasing anything, we didn't just rip things off, we know how it works, the clone is just a POC, we plan on documenting.

The exploit will be documented on the ps3wiki as soon as possible (we need to write up the whole article, will take a bit)

Buy an AT90USBKEY or Teensy board now and we'll have good news soon.

Right now as far as I know the (original clone) code has been ported to the Teensy ++ There is no ETA as to any other devices so far."

Teensy Key Features:

• USB can be any type of device
• AVR processor, 16 MHz
• Single pushbutton programming
• Easy to use Teensy Loader application
• Free software development tools
• Works with Mac OS X, Linux & Windows
• Tiny size, perfect for many projects
• Available with pins for solderless breadboard
• Very low cost & low cost shipping options

One of the guys in Mathieulh`s crew has found out how the psjailbreak works. They are working on a tutorial to flash the jailbreak software on these usb microcontrollers and use those as a jailbreak device.

However they are removing the function to boot backups from the harddrive, but i think someone else will restore that feature. Just wait until there is an understandable tutorial on how to create your own psjailbreak before you decide to buy one of those usb microcontrollers.

Regardless whether Mathieu is part of a team or not (he is though) this device seems quite capable of delivering the payload without the need for a chip programmer, so is a economic option for people who don't have access to such tools.

It seems likely that once someone releases their source we will be able to port or code similar systems for other chips.

You can do anything you want with it.. Think of it as a computer in a chip with a CPU / Ram / Flash memory..

You could program it to flash lights, build a robot, make a weather station, emulate a ps3 jig... anything really.

Ahhh unless they said you could I don't think you can. The arduinio talks via serial and not usb; where the atusbkey has native usb support (I think)

but still it is cheap €24.84. We have waited 3 years for this, 1-3 weeks is nothing. The shellcode has not been released yet, if we had the board now it would be no good until we get the shellcode.
