That would be interesting, and useful for some users I guess. Loading backups over the network (sans filesize limit) would be nice, as would a transfer via the same interface. If I remember correctly, the PS3 SAK had samba support, but only to FAT 32 drives, so NTFS of extx compatibility would be a big step forwards. (both for external and network drives)

I'd go with the $50 option compared to the $120 option anyday.


Uh! The dongle or clones aren't "applications"! They are a specific piece of hardware with Backup Manager as a software. He's asking a very legit question.

I've done a little bit research myself about the origin of both websites. It appears that both websites were registered in same company, through same 'proxy' and the timespan between the two websites is only 2 days. Doesn't it look a bit suspicious? eh?

using the Backup Manager... maybe Logic Sunrise cloning the Manager.pkg and build a LSManager.pkg ROLF !

x3JailBreak is the PSJ made by LOGIC SUNRISE, for 49$

yep "hard" cloning, or busy to add some µ security to the x3JB.

well it was mentioned yesterday by psjailbreak comment that the delays were in no way caused by componnet shortages, afterall the components are very common and simple.
