September 2, 2010 // 7:57 pm - A few days back we saw the x3JailBreak PS JailBreak clone in action, and today the PS3 modchip's official site (linked above) is updated stating that shipping will begin tomorrow and there will be an online verification for updates.

They've listed a number of new features, including account based updates (after verification, so clones don't get access to updates),
future expansion promise.

Realizing the existence of much cheaper homebrew hardware options, they're saying their hardwre is competitively priced to those (teensy++ etc).

Here's their update with the list of features, to quote:

• X3JailBreak will start shipping the 100 samples, starting 2moro(today ;p) (sep 3rd to sep 6th).
• Future updates will need a per user-copy basis (to make clones fail to get the updates ;p, which might get circumvented by open source hack methods anyway)
• will be shipping our samples out to 100 selected requests starting Sept 3rd-Sept 6th and x3jailbreak are now taking pre-orders which will start shipping by the end of next week (Sept 10th-13th). Feel free to submit your pre-orders today.
• Our goal at x3jailbreak was to provide you as customers a powerful, quality and low cost solution.
• Even with recent events you will still be able to purchase our x3jailbreak for lower then any other device available including new homebrew devices suggested online.
• You will receive a quality dongle that is completely functioning and ready to use as soon as it arrives.
• Our X3jailbreak features include the following:

1) Larger case for ease of use and less change of misplacing or losing your dongle.
2) More Powerful (competition using 8 bit processor compared to x3 is using a 32 bit operating processor)
3) Hardware USB compared to where PSJ is software emulated
4) As updates become available x3jailbreak is easily upgradable.
5) Expansion ports for upcoming features/add-on

• Your X3 will come with a serial number to use online to verify proof that your x3jailbreak is authentic and also you will be able to use your serial number to access the download area when new updates become available.

Probably to make their "feature list" seem longer.

why does every single clone always have this "feature"
X3 Max disables forced software updates and will never brick your console. Supports all games.

it's a total crock of crap they know it, we know it yet they keep saying it.

CJPC got his today, but there really isn't a point to make a video on it now since we've posted both reviews and videos on it already proving that it works, etc.

Here is an update from their site ( for those curious, in summary x3JailBreak is now being called x3Max.
First of all, we would like to say sorry for the lack of recent news and any delays of the X3 product. We have been, with the full team, very busy in the last 2 weeks. We have decided to make some nice improvements to the X3 product as we did not want to adress this market with a very common solution like everyone else has done already.

We know that our competition is a main unique team that try to market a unique product under several brands. No innovations are in it. They are many different cheaply made PSJ clones.

That being said we have decided to renamed our product that we have shipped sample of. We are naming this product X3 MAX.

With the recent events taking place in the last couple of weeks, we have made some sharp choices in order to protect our resellers business. Our customer are free to buy, import in their home country and sell our solution, as our product is free of any hacking code or similar. Our customer buys hardware and sells hardware.

It is up to the end-user, your final customer, to change his product into a very powerful tool that will let him enjoy full pleasure of unlocked PS3. We have written our own PC application for updating the X3 product.

So, when anyone receives his X3 (Do Not expect to put in PS3 first), he will connect it to his PC thru the USB port and using the X3 Programming Tool, will update the X3. This update takes only about 5 seconds.

We shipped a hundred samples out on September the 21st to testing teams all over the world. They are invited to test the product and then post their feedbacks and video demos online. Stay tuned over the internet, you will shortly start to hear about our realization.

We are not releasing any software at this time. We plan to release both the PC application and any codes with an estimated release date of Monday September 27. The reason we have decided to do this is so that everyone that was shipped their sample will be able to all start using their devices on the same day.

We look forward to hear all your feedback from everyone that will be receiving their samples.

At this time we are in full production and we are in production with other PS3 products so Stay Tuned for more news in the next week!

This guys are just milking money from idiots, 32bit processor? for what simple emulation? and online verification?? like they even bother to actually write something.

COME ON people this is just pathetic. Boycott this guys so the money they put into making this dongles hit their budget hard. Unless of course you really want to donate money to this guys.

There is no need to test that; functionality is identical to the self-made ones that cost 18-24 USD. This is a rippoff, don't buy it. Those cloners don't deserve a single dime.
