    Aparantly, someone called Mathieu Hervais (and possibly others) have cloned the Dongle, but just the code on it. He says if you buy a Teensy board ($24) their rewritten shell code can be loaded onto it, and it will work as a PS3 Jailbreak dongle.

    Just sayin'.

    Edit: This guy seems legit, not just some random guy, being one of the first to hack the PSP.

    $24 compared to $160, and has more than one use. Seems pretty good to me! [​IMG]

    Interesting. Though I will still never buy it.

    I kind of want this. And I kind of don't. Hmmm, decisions, decisions. [​IMG]

    If a compatible microcontroller is sold at DealExtreme, I might consider it, but I highly doubt it.

    If there's proof of this guys code working on it, I'll buy it (since I can use it for other stuff, so it doesn't matter if Sony update and render it useless, because I'd have other uses for it then [​IMG])

    I guess if you find something with that microcontroller then it would work, but he isn't guaranteeing anything. $24 seems like a bargain to me compared to the stupid price the original guys were charging.

    But like I said before, I'd like to see it working first...

    That "someone called Mathieu Hervais" is Mathieulh of Team M33 who worked alongside Dark Alex. If he says something then it's legit.

    Hell yeah, me too. Hope this pans out pretty soon and is relatively easy. This will make the perfect trifecta this console generation.

    I'm SO tempted of ordering one, especially after seeing Teensyduino (which is a nice extra)! [​IMG]

    Awesome news. Going to wait awhile before I consider getting one. One way to get around Sony stopping the sale of the PS3 Jailbreak.

    Didn't even realise who this guy was until I googled his name LOL.

    Good job he's legit, or I'd feel a little dumb right now [​IMG]

    I think I'll wait until they have a full-on clone of the device for under $20. And someone gives me a PS3. For free.
