    Amaze break only works with firmware 3.41
    Did you get 1 that says Amaze written on the side?
    If it has no writeing just be careful with dongle as they have a tendancy to blow surface mount fuses
    But otherwise they work great.
    Use an official 3.41 upgrade http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/87 or
    KaKaRoTo's custom firmware 3.41 http://www.ps3-hacks.com/2011/01/04/ps3-cu...kgs-to-the-xmb/ is a good alternative to a standard firmware plus it prepares you for signed backup managers which should be out within a month fingers crossed.
    P.S. NO 1 wants your money here advice is FREE

    Use the official upgrade then for now.
    Have you been to Amaze http://www.amazebreak.cc/Download.asp to get
    2010-12-17
    Amazebreak upgradefile11 (V3.55 Spoof to prevent the console upgrade to fw3.55 )
    And flash your dongle to the newer firmware

    You have to be on FW 3.41.
    Make sure your Amaze Break is updated to the latest hex/bin/FW/whatever (link)

    How to jailbreak:
    1. Turn off the PS3 from the back the turn it on again.
    2. Plug the the dongle into one of the usb ports.
    3. Press the power then the eject button VERY QUICKLY (This is very important!)
    4. Wait until XMB shows up. If you see "Install Package files" under Game, then you have successfully jailbroken your PS3.

    -Repeat this every time you want to start your PS3 in jailbreak mode.

    Once its in a Jailbreak state you can install pkg files go here for managers to install you will find them under PS3 Homebrew Apps

    http://www.ps3-hacks.com/category/all multiMAN is a nice manager to install.
    But download a couple decide which you like best
