PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak Clone PS3 ModChip Review

Sponsored Links
227w ago - Here is my PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip review, which I got from www.PS3Break.com (linked above).

Shipping info:

The package was sent with DHL Express mail. Which means it can be all over the world in just 3-5 business days. The box was sealed with a lot of tape and the content comments were a little funny:

•1x USB card reader PHAT usb

The package came through the customs without being opened or withdrawn. Payment is via CC and Paypal. If I have to believe were it is shipping from it comes from Hong Kong.

So I would say shipping is a big 9/10.

Package info:

The box around the PS3Break looks very similar to the PSJailbreak box. The sticker says PS3Break V1.1 (was the newest version, there is a version 1.2 coming soon!). There is also a "truth inquiry" sticker. There is a code on it and when I check it on the website it should say LEGIT.

When you open the box you'll find the PS3Break + a strap. It comes without any guaranty/manual enclosed. The manual can be found on the website.

It gets a 7/10. Minor here is the lack of a manual.

PS3Break unit itself:

The unit looks very strong and has an aluminum case. When you hold it the first thing you'll notice is the "upgrade" key. This is needed to flash the stick with a new HEX or Firmware. When I insert the PS3Break it fits like a glove. No problems there.

I tested this on a phat. When I power the PS3 up and immediately hit the eject button there is a small disco show inside the unit. Then it lights up green and your good to go. Although you need to power down the PS3 totally or else it will not work!

8/10 Down side is that it's very slippy...

PS3Break working itself:

When I started the unit it worked like a charm. I installed the AVCHD and Game Manager (by Dean). This also works like a charm. Backuping Start the Party took about 10 minutes. Running the game also gives no problems.

8/10 Again. The lack of a manual is still a - here.


Very nice and satisfying product. Only down side is they already made an "thirth GEN" device. So I have got the idea I am having an old stick soon here.

The review math:

9 + 7 + 8 + 8 = 32

32 / 40 * 100% = 80 total score.

Which hex file did you use? is it the Hermes V4 fixed for PIC18FXXXX? could you write down a simple step by step on how to flash the ps3break 1.1 with the new V4 hex? thanks in advance..

i've been searching for 2 days on how to update with the latest hex file.. even tried iLLNESS's hex.

Yeah, for the short version. They fooled the customers with the non upgradable long version.

Now they're updated to 1.2 version from 1.1v to make the v1.0 disappear quickly from the news post. (so everybody will forget about it) I wouldn't support these. I got a PS3KEY and happy with it.

Great review, that's exactly the same model I have, I'm satisfied with it, but will soon buy one P3Hub in black color to have more free USB ports.

If your PS3 Break v1.1 is based on AT90USB162 like mine you can upgrade it using Flip software from Atmel, is free and easy to use! Just grab an hex here on the site (blackcat, teensy 1.0 or at90usb162 off course!) and use it, the only drawback is the leds working inverted, light on boot and off when jailbreaked, I can live with that!
