    Like most people, I was waiting to jailbreak my ps3 with an apple, but i just realized this might just never happen. Can anyone help me find the cheapest jailbreak device?

    Edit: Yeah, i was browsing shoptemp and saw it. I thought they only sold the PS3 Break. I don't know why it doesn't get more advertisement.
    I'm buying USBBREAK USB Jailbreaker, I think is the same just not upgradeable. Thanks kewell!

    Edit: Thanks DeltaBurnt.

    Maybe making your own is cheaper?You might already have something that can or you can buy the teensy++ board for $24.

    They are probably re-evaluating their inventory of PS3 jailbreak devices and didn't want any one to complain about current stock during the process.

    Just my speculation based on Costello's post in this forum yesterday.

    I'm afraid not..I ordered from a site that just removed them as well, even though mine is still in transit from a early purchase..They are being removed every where..Get yours while you can..

    you all realise that every one of these clones is in fact a clone of the original... firmware-wise?

    I'm shocked that nothing is available on DealExtreme yet.

    Don't know if this is old news but I just found this interesting article on the Jailbreak hardware itself. Says that because of the ATML chip shortage, all of the newer Jailbreak USB's have chips which aren't updateable:

    I believe such things usually take about a month or two...

    Haha good old DX. I knew it wouldn't take them that long. [​IMG]

    Doesn't look like their USB's are updatable but does that even matter?
