September 5, 2010 // 6:48 am - A few days ago we reported on news of an OpenPSJailBreak PSP port, and now several more PSFreedom / PSGroove PS JailBreak PS3 exploit ports are in development.

Current POC / WIP ports for the PSFreedom / PSGroove PS JailBreak exploit include a PSP port and SixAxis/DualShock 3 port from Spanish site Elotrolado and also a Dingoo A320 one for those with Dingux Firmware from Waninkoko is available below.

Downloads: PSP Port POC/WIP / PSP Port POC/WIP #2 / cPSJailBk N900 Mod / PSPIC2 / PSFreedom Dingo / PSFreedom for Dingoo v1.1 / PSFreedom for Dingoo v1.2 / PSFreedom for Dingoo v1.3 / PSFreedom for Dingoo v1.4

From the ReadMe file:


1. Place the zImage file in your mini-SD card (important: choose the one that works with your LCD screen!!).
2. Run Dingux and wait for the kernel to boot completely.
3. Now your Dingoo behaves like the PSJailbreak device!!


The patch for the kernel is included in the "kernel-patch" folder. The patch has been created to be applied on the top of the opendingux 2.6.35 kernel tree.

PSGroove reports that the first PSP POC/WIP linked above requires a 5.00 M33 CFW PSP and the 1.50 kernel addon.

R3CK reports that the second PSP POC/WIP linked above doesn't need the 1.50 kernel and runs on his Gen-D3 fat PSP.

Although neither PSP POC/WIP actually does anything yet to your PlayStation 3 as they simply act as a USB hub that will be used to transmit the PS3 exploit, below are the instructions for those who wish to check them out.

POC Instructions:
- Go into usb mode.
- Extract the rar file and move "pspgroove" to GAME5.XX folder on your memory stick.
- Disable any plugins you might have enabled.
- Run PSPgroove it should run without any errors.

Rough translation notes on the SixAxis/DualShock 3 port in development are as follows for those curious:

The SixAxis control has a memory EEPROM its programming allows. The name of the Micro ones is:
- JAPAN0703EG1
- F0194ZA

ElSemi shared PSPIC2 (linked above) which is a port of PSGroove hub emulation to the Microchip PIC18 (PIC18F2550, etc) family with USB, hackmich provided a 12 Mhz hex code and Nanaki666 compiled the hexcode for the PIC18F2550 and HERE for all crystals (20, 16, 12, 8, 4).

PSGrooPIC is also released (hexcodes HERE and HERE) along with a schematic and component list, as follows:

- 1x PIC 18F2550 Microcontroller
- 1x Xtal 8Mhz
- 2x 22pf capacitors
- 1x 470nF capacitor
- 1x 100nF capacitor
- 2x 330Ohm resistors
- 1x 10KOhm resistor
- 1x 1N4148 diode
- 1x Bicolor led
- 1x USB Connector Type A
- 1x Push button (in case you want reset/bootloader function)
- Vertical pins for ICSP (in case you use a programmer like pickit2)
- 1x Protoboard!

He recommends an ART2003 programmer or a Pickit 2 (commercial and cheaper). Download and install WinPIC800 if you have an ART2003 or any other serial/parallel programmer... or install MPlab IDE if you have a Pickit2. What you need now is to compile SRC to generate .hex (CCS compiler V4.112 or newer required)... or just download this... (extra features enabled 4Bytes changed thing...)

letsmod at PSX-Scene has also pointed out the Maximus AVR USB Dev 1.0 is a low-cost demonstration board based on the AT90USB 16kb microcontroller.

It allows the quick evaluation of AVR microcontrollers and the AT90USB family. The key simply plugs into the USB port of a personal computer. Designers can either run demonstration programs or their own application.

It is made in USA and shipping to resellers on Sep 13, 2010 for $39 USD and the PSGroove MaximusAVRUSB hex code is also available.

Finally, musclenerd is porting the PS Groove PS3 exploit to the iphone, a video is below.

I've read that there is a port for Mameo (spelling?) based phones, which is awesome (except for us still with the terrible old Symbian based phones :-) ). Is there any word on a Symbian port? Or even better, a J2ME port, then it would be hugely compatible across most phones... Of course, Im just making this up as I go along - I know nothing of Symbian programming, Mobile JAVA, or any of its limitations, and I'm really still waiting on Musclenerd's port for my IPT2G unless something else I can use turns up :-)

I reckon cellphones are the way forward on this one. Not that I know anything about coding. My Nokia has a USB port!!

I have razer Lachesis mouse just sitting on the shelf. is it possible to flash that, reson i ask is i know there is a 32kb onboard memory. and it is flashable with new firmware.

The specifications listed on Razer's home page for the Lachesis:

* 32KB Razer Synapse™ onboard memory
* 1000Hz Ultrapolling / 1ms response time

* 16-bit ultra-wide data path

the chip is a
FC 6L41Y

the silver think have the text JF4000 if its needed

As this has been our ongoing Dingoo thread, I have now added Waninkoko's PSFreedom for Dingoo v1.1 port to the first post.
PSFreedom Dingoo is a port of PSFreedom, created by KaKaRoTo, to the Dingoo A320 console (JZ4740 chipset). The zImage file included in the package allows you to boot a modified version of Dingux that makes the console to behave like the PSJailbreak device.

Hi all, i have a problem. I made a board following that scheme: I used a 20Mhz clock and EXACTLY that type of board.

I tried do write some HEX files and i found 1 that works perfectly... i can install backup manager and i can create image of my games on bluray... but when i try to play backups that doesn't work...

Someone can please post a HEX working with that scheme and with a 20Mhz clock?

Thanks mate I had all the bits for this sitting around so I have put it together and it worked like magic. The led didn't work for me but I may have done something wrong there will check it out later.
