August 22, 2010 // 11:49 pm - A few days back we shared the first two reviews on the new PSJailBreak PS3 USB ModChip, and today a third arrives from MainStreamEditing.co.uk (linked above).

Below the review is split into two videos, demonstrating the PS Jailbreak USB stick which backs up PS3 games onto a PlayStation 3 HDD to play.

Finally, those seeking to get a PS JailBreak PS3 ModChip may wish to hold off as this coming week PSJailBreak x3JailBreak clones are reported to be arriving ranging from only $20-$40 each... or better yet, wait for a 100% FREE scene solution which undoubtedly is also on the way.

Check out the PSJailBreak PS3 USB ModChip Review videos below!

i wonder if the games are decrypted on the fly, and stay decrypted once on the hdd. if so, i wonder if its possible to make those decrypted games into an ISO and burn them to blu ray discs, and play them via blu ray drive, so that they are undetectable by sony.

Typically yes. But from what I gather, this isn't a standard USB device, insofar that it doesn't communicate like one. Its acting more like an RS232 serial interface, and the HW ID that is detected at system startup is what sends the PS3 into service mode. Serial interfaces are notorious for not being hot-swappable, hence why in the old days you had to plug a serial device in THEN turn on your system. Again I may be wrong or misinformed, and if so, someone please correct me, but I believe thats how and why.

Why in the guides would they say not to have the power on when you plug it on when it apparently works anyways?
