248w ago - 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."

are they trying to make as much money as they can before the release it and people realize that they are just regular USB's and just dump the contents so everyone can get it for free?

ohh and don't forget about that outragous price.


definitely seems that way.

theres nothing out there to compare it to because theres nothing out there yet.

I've agreed to their terms and will make a review and video proving this to be authentic... if thats what it turns out to be. With one of these x3's on the way, only a short time until we will all know if this is a legit product we can trust our money in.

3D acceleration... by that I assume you mean control of the RSX, that would be quite significant and I find it hard to believe there wouldn't be a peep about something such as that.

Your claim then the immediate dismissal about makes me all the more wary about anything you say. Tin foil hat on.

Now to see if we can get something out of these ps3key people because the more cheap clones the better for the scene.
And may this be legit.
