243w ago - 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."

From Netzke's Blog:
BETA For android release date: Within the next week if everything goes as planned
BETA For iOS release: Within the next two weeks if everything goes as planned.


He also mentioned that the iOS beta release might even be ready within 3 days because they're making good progress.
The Android port also seems to be running smoothly, but they're experiencing a bug with screen flickering.

I already rooted my Wildfire and am ready to go!

Impossible. Java makes running native code nigh on impossible let alone allowing low level hardware access needed for something like this.

Nope, Android is now bigger than the iPhone and is growing much much quicker. Being a linux based OS it means all we need is for the N900 hack source code to be released and then all that needs to be done is for it to be recompiled for Android.

A purely windows based application would need to potentially be rewritten or optimised for windows and that would take more time than tweaking the current code, which afaik is based off linux.

(Obviously someone correct me if i'm wrong, i've only glanced briefly through all this news as i've been busy with work lately!)

Ok i understand the windows thing, what about a port straight to linux and run vmware on windows machine and boot that way,im not a programer in any way and really apperciate all the hard work being done, cheers hackers.

creating the hardware and selling it for just $3 ok im taking this hook that would be awesome and unsupprisingly cost effective... i would totally buy a 3 dollar board off of someone and flash the programing myself than pay the 150 for the psjailbreak moneygrubbers.
