August 23, 2010 // 6:33 pm - Yesterday we reported on news of the first x3JailBreak PS JailBreak PS3 USB ModChip clone, and today it is being labeled as a possible fake with a second clone dubbed the PS3Key Mod surfacing.

Similar to the x3JailBreak site, the Dutch Web site PS3Key.com lacks specific details on the alleged clone, so only time will tell if it is legitimate or not.

They do state, however, to quote: "Good news everyone! Our mad scientist has confirmed that getting into the console is as simple as pretending to be a USB hub! It doesn't look like this is going to take any more than a few weeks!"

According to Nyleveia.com (linked above), x3JailBreak is nothing more than the internals of a generic or branded-clone USB flash drive when compared to PS JailBreak which they say likely utilizes an Alcor AU6984 flash storage controller.

To quote: "Both devices follow a similar layout with a bank of SMT's leading to a crystal oscillator then a flash controller and lastly the SMD (Activity light). On the lower device, the flash memory itself is located on the underside of the PCB, as the many vias present in the PCB around the flash controller indicate.

A similar arrangement of vias are present on the purported x3Jailbreak, leading me to believe that there is actually a flash chip present on the rear of "their PCB" too."

I'll most likely get a clone until the "free" method comes along (if it ever does) B/c at the price of PSJB if the clone does the same thing and is reliable that's the way I'm going.

well, we can come back to the topic. The guy said that he could prove PSJB is a standard pendrive and ofcourse without pic, nobody can believe it. There's no troll here friend.

But if someone is gonna post something like this, its better bring proofs together... otherway it'll become a mess.

HadesTeam said they are getting a PS3JB. Is CJPC working with them (since DH has his own subforum here) on the "free solution"?

But if you have already pre-ordered, no worries, just send it to me and I can help you test it

if no ones PC can read the files on the stick... i'm leaning torwards the JIG being formatted in USF2 (isn't that what the ps3 HD is?)

also why not format the externals in USF2? & then somone code a USF2 reader/writer for the PC & this way we could take a game rip it & then load it via a PC (i know some of you dont have BD-drives in your PC, but some of us do)

I'm pissed, because i had to buy another LBP disc becasue my old ps3 practiaclly eat the disk... it should be SONY's responsibility to give us the option to backup our games & play from a HD. Physical Disc media is so... umm... Ancient... lol & its very easy to damage a cd.

They claim their solution is 100% legitimate and will not begin taking any money until they have product in hand. "people should know there might be plenty of alternatives."
