Cheaper alternative to the psjailbreak. $18 USD.
Is there any tutorial on how to use this? My friend's got one.
Where can I buy this dongle from? Do you think I should wait until the PS3Break can downgrade? Assuming it will be able to. I want to play GT5!
Edit: Just went onto www.lightake.com seems as though they are out of stock
Cheapest I saw on NDSCart... $17.99, registered airmail. Ordered one
Champion! Just ordered one and got $1 off for being a new member lol.
Looks like I'll be playing GT5 tonight. Hell yeah!
psxscene has places to buy it + coupon codes
Thanks. I'm happy to pay $17 for something that does the same thing as a >$100 dongle does.
Just ordered one from Lightake. I was waiting for openiboot to be ported to iPad, but this seems like a better overall solution. Now I can update my PS3 to 3.5 to get NHL GameCenter working, and then downgrade when I need to play a game.
Does this let you downgrade more than once? I'm new to the PS3 scene
I don't see why you can't use it more than once.
Just picked one up off of lightake. For 15$ you can't beat it.
Weird it said they were out of stock half an hour ago. Ohh well, I'm not going to cry over $2.
HA HA ... you lose m8. H E R E ... cheaper 1 cent!!! but I'm the true looser for my order when it was $17.99 2 hours ago (I thought it will be sold out)
@pitoui you lost $2 < me lost $3 ....
You will be able to downgrade more than once. This was a limitation set intentionally by psjailbreak on their initial software to get more money.
*However, they decided allow free unlimited downgrades to their customers.
Since this is free, I see no reason to restrict it to single downgrades.
I've heard rumours about BD-movies playback that have stopped to function after a downgrade. Does anybody know if there's some truth in that rumour or if it's just fake.
It's in swedish but it comes from one of our most well-known albeit expensive modchipsite.
You should note that on the 2nd of December 2010 we noticed that Blu-Ray movie support crashed after downgrading PS3 consoles, we don't know what's causing it but our theory is that some kind of copy protection has been planted in the 3.50 fw and that the registry keys(no idea about that one) don't match after the downgrade. DVD-movies and Blu-ray game support hasn't been rubbed according to what we have seen. We have noted this phenomenon on 2 Phat PS3 which we downgraded but our PS3Slim played Blu-Ray movies just fine when we did the same thing(3rd of December). We will try with another Phat PS3 which Blu-Ray movie support we check before downgrading(it could perhaps been broken already) which we didn't do in the other two cases and se what will come of it.
It's loose but i'm still a bit shaky.
I'm pretty stoked still and when I can find a site that looks reliable enough to ask my parents to order it(I don't have a Visa or Internet Bank) I probably will.
Does anyone think this is a good option for downgrading ps3 it seems to support ps3groove and is updateable.
great news !
does anyone know if this has been ported to anything else yet ?
Hah! That didn't take long... this is all very exciting
Yes. The PS3Break and EcliPS3 Teams have announced downgrade support.
You can read about this here.
Hopefully, an open source version will be available in the future for all to enjoy.
cheers for that mate , noticed the ps3break last night !
Damn, why didn't PS3Break announce they were releasing a downgrader too? Now I'll have both the PS3Break and the E3
