PSJailBreak Reverse-Engineering Details Begin to Surface

PSJailBreak Reverse-Engineering Details Begin to Surface 850°
236w ago - Earlier today we reported that the PSJailBreak PS3 modchip is easily dumped and that PSJailBreak clones are already on the way, and now some PlayStation 3 developers are working on reverse-engineering the costly USB device in hopes to make a less expensive or free scene alternative available soon.

Tsujin, knightsolidus and bushing have made brief attempts at determining the PSJailBreak IC chip and pin-out, while Neme6 of Logic-Sunrise (linked above) has also shared his findings thus far.

More pictures are available HERE for those curious, and to quote, roughly translated on the linked pics:

"Many teams are studying the JSP to try to clone a low cost and how it works. From the photos released, I tried to determine the electronic design of PSJ.

Here is the result of my work and my observations. Feel free to post if can lighten the shadows that remain.

First ICP is probably the type PIC18F declination 4455, 4550,...
 

x3JailBreak - The First PS JailBreak Clone Arrives for PS3!

x3JailBreak - The First PS JailBreak Clone Arrives for PS3! 850°
236w ago - Yesterday we reported news that the official PS JailBreak site warned of clone PS3 modchips, and today it appears the first PSJailBreak clone has surfaced dubbed x3JailBreak.

According to several IRC users who mailed them, x3JailBreak dongle clones will be selling beginning next week for $20-$40 each.

While there aren't many other details available on the official www.x3JailBreak.com site yet, below is a rough translation from French site Logic-Sunrise (linked above) on these new PS JailBreak PlayStation 3 modchip clones.

To quote: "That is now three days since the announcement of the hack the PS3 has been proven to create excitement on the Web. When everyone realized that the long awaited hack console Nippon boiled down to a dongle with a USB output (at a price a bit high), the question on everyone's lips was 'is there an alternative ?, clones... like the linker?'

The answer is do not wait and made positive, in fact already found on the Web advertisements for the first clones, it was still very little...
 

PSJailbreak is Detectable and Bannable on PSN, Dumped Easily

PSJailbreak is Detectable and Bannable on PSN, Dumped Easily 1200°
236w ago - A few days ago we saw the inside pics of PS JailBreak, and today SKFU (linked above) has posted that PSJailbreak is both detectable and bannable on PSN along with Mathieulh confirming confirming that GeoHot's exploit was used and that PS JailBreak can be easily dumped.

He went on to state: "Actually they used the geohot hack to get code with lv1 privileges running on the console, they then used this to 1. Dump lv1 2. dump the spm syscall table (that's after quite a bit of lv1 reversing to even figure the spm exists) 3. Use the actual spm syscalls to trick the spu into calculating the proper response for the dongle id of their choosing.

Without those steps that all require geohot's hack, they could never have gotten their dongle to successfully identify as a jig and they could never have triggered their hack.

The psjailbreak basically exploits the update manager which is the code that does the dongle auth located inside the spm itself inside lv1.

We don't have the payload it sends though because we don't have a dongle to sniff...

PS JailBreak Warns of Clone PS3 ModChips, Offers Dealer Listing

PS JailBreak Warns of Clone PS3 ModChips, Offers Dealer Listing 700°
236w ago - This weekend the official PS JailBreak site (linked above) has resurfaced after being down with a warning to avoid clone PS3 ModChips, and they have provided an Authorized Dealer List to help potential buyers purchase their PS JailBreak.

According to their banner, imitators and cheap Chinese knockoffs are already a threat to their PS JailBreak sales.

While we won't condone purchasing a PS JailBreak PS3 ModChip (official or clone) as we feel waiting a few weeks for a FREE PS3 scene solution is the smarter way to go, below is their list of current resellers around the globe for those interested along with the official distribution pricing.

It's interesting to note they intend to remove any reseller who sells below the guidelines provided. Additionally, PS3JailBreak.com reports that Dave at promods.com.au confirmed this price fixing and went on to state the minimum order is $22,000.00.
