The True Blue PS3 dongle 'marketing team' have made an announcement ( which sounds worse than what you'd expect to hear from $ony themselves ) regarding the JailBreak 2 TB v2.4 update and clone dongles as well.

For those with a dead True Blue dongle, Mark Webber has posted the following method to attempt repairing it via: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/2047-JB?p=23677#post23677

JB King is not a 1:1 clone, it uses an ST IC for communication with a PC, the TB does not have this at all. There is a very simple way to repair a "dead" TB dongle but you will need some hardware to do it. The cause of the "death" is that the SPI is blanked out - fill in the blanks.

You will need:

  • SPI Flash Programmer (get one from ebay)
  • The original 2meg update file.

1. Remove SPI flash from TB board
2. Put into programmer
3. Load 2Meg file and flash SPI
4. Replace SPI back onto TB board
5. Put back into PS3 & update as normal.

I did tell everyone way back the TB had a suicide mech built-in. The TB will erase the SPI flash and leave it dead in the water as soon as it detects an attempt to do anything to it. The sad thing is, it is doing it with false positives as well, hence so many dead dongles.

Finally, below is the official True Blue Update 2.4 changes from the ReadMe file as follows:

True Blue Dongle Update v2.4

How to update:

1. Make sure your PS3 is running the True Blue "3.55-Dongle" CFW (custom firmware)
2. Copy TrueBlueUpdate-2.4.pkg from this archive to a USB flash drive
3. Boot your PS3 _WITHOUT_ True Blue inserted, and then insert the USB flash drive
4. Navigate to (Game) -> (Install Package Files), and then select TrueBlueUpdate-2.4.pkg
5. The True Blue updater will be installed onto your PS3 HDD
6. Navigate to (Game) and load "True Blue Update v2.4"
7. The updater will start, and will then prompt you to insert the True Blue dongle. Insert it only at this point, and continue. Your dongle will then be updated
8. After the update procedure has completed your PS3 will reset, and you will then be able to enjoy your updated dongle
9. You may delete the True Blue Updater from your HDD after the update is complete

Change log:

- v2.4

  • Stability improvements
  • Enhanced dongle security

- v2.3

  • Fixed games requiring "BD Mirror"
  • True Blue firmware version is now displayed on the XMB "System Information" screen

- v2.2

  • Initial worldwide release
  • Support for running "True Blue" titles directly from HDD via standard backup managers

I do not know, by what miracle guys have run Batman Arkham City on TB CFW, it gave me black screen all the time, and I tried with and without disc, with and without patch, with and without dlc... etc.

1) Then I tried to make a PSN-like package to run it with the TB unplugged (you remember good old times, eh?). After 2.5 hours of converting NPDRM-update-like-pkg signed with debug keys with hard-as-nutshell-to-decrypt eboot, I finally managed to create a pkg. It run, but at the install it hanged.

2) So, I made another (obvious) solution in half an hour - reencrypted eboot, so you can replace it directly over your game dump and play happily on any 3.55 CFW (included TB) without problems (haven't tried dlc's on TB CFW yet). Tested on TB CFW v2 with dongle plugged.

Instructions:

1. Replace ebbot in your game's dump directory with this: http://www.sendspace.com/file/3u2rb5 (THIS IS NOT AN OLD EBOOT, IT'S CONVERTER!)
2. Run the game, allow it to install data, start new game, when you'll regain control of Bruce, while moving the character, you should press PS button and chose "Exit game"
3. Start multiman, copy "PATCH" directory d/l from here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/8yp618 to your hdd0/game/BLUS30538/USRDIR (game install directory)
4. Start the game again, wait till another install finishes, enjoy!

No old semi-working patches were used, it's a real deal, patched to run in a way for TB users, who have troubles launching the usual style.

Come on guys, I sacrificed some precious hours of sleep (it's 4 AM here), I deserve some +reps

Here is another update from the TB site:

23 - 7 - 2012

The True Blue team will soon be launching an updated version of our dongle, hence our silence and lack of news/updates. The changes include a new style casing to help differentiate clones from the authentic True Blue dongles. The new version dongle will be compatible with EBOOT patches released to date, whilst existing authentic True Blue dongles in the market will continue to be supported in the same firmware releases.

You can expect a spate of EBOOT releases shortly after the new version dongle is released. We also plan to include a lot of extra features for our loyal True Blue user base in upcoming firmware releases. which will also function seamlessly on existing authentic True Blue dongles.

We would also like to bring to our potential customers and existing users attention that the website: truebluejb2.cc is selling FAKE dongles. We are in no way associated with them nor will we replace or support their fake dongles.

Information received suggests that they have not yet cloned our new style packaging, so large qty's of devices in the market which do NOT come packed in the packaging detailed below (30-5-2012 news) are most likely fake. We will continue to monitor the situation daily.

The upcoming new firmware releases will also block the clones and help users differentiate fakes from authentic dongles.

Upcoming firmware releases will block these fake devices and furthermore EBOOT's will not support the clones. PB2 and JBking clone devices will also be blocked in the future and will not function correctly with our upcoming features!

We thank our customers for their continuing support and hope you will enjoy the coming features and EBOOT patches.........

The clones sold by truebluejb2.cc can be differentiated by checking the PCB inside the casing using the guide below, as previously posted in news.

very crazy stuff, i think you will probably need kind of update, or adapter, or something for the true blue to work, the pieces just do not add up to me.

Ouch! Please don't make another dongle

If they did make another dongle for high rocket price then, I guess I have to say goodbye to PS3 and welcome 360

I'm afraid that if True Blue really releases a new dongle soon, they won't release any more eboot for the dongle, as it already has a lot of clones, and they probably want to sell more from their new dongle...

TrueBlue (JB2) will stop production and another dongle will be released according to LighTake's site:

True Blue JB2 was stop producing and a newest replace product will be released in July, please pay close attention to TB official site news update in recently days. Any questions just contact sales for help.

A newer replace DRM dongle with build-in ndw function will be released July 20th.

Q: Does the old TB dongle compatible with the new one?
A: Yes! our supplier said the old TB will still get support on updating so that it can play new games as the new dongle. If there is a change, I will advance notice.

Q: What's the name and function of the new dongle?
A: It's still a mystery currently, I will update immediately if I heard something from our supplier.

We have confirmed that the new dongle is still called True Blue (aka JB2 / TB), but it was changed new packaging and add more function in it. What's the new technical support? I am sorry we don't know currently except compatible with the old TB eboots.
