    ok iv had the original JB dongle since launch but recently some of the newer back ups aint been loading (cod, assassins creed) etc
    all i get is "an error occoured on starup" and it takes me back to the ps3 menu
    im on fw 3.41 and iv never changed any settings or anything, all i have is back up loader on my ps3 which works great apart from a few new games that wont load.
    it could be that these games just dont work from ext HD but im not sure and they dont seem to be on any compatability lists

    so is ther an update for the official JB device? or do i need a newer back up loader? if not what do i need to do to play the latest games?
    iv heard about updating the payload but iv no idea how to do that or even where to start google seems to just bring up other things about jailbreak

    any help or info would be appreciated

    what does that updater do? does it let you play the latest games on 3.41?
    has anyone tried it?

    Its has a way better game compatibility and lets you play the games without a disk in your ps3 just read around (stickies) and you will understand how everything works

    thats where im stuck i cant find windows\syswow64 anywhere

    it just says on the psupgrader when i search for the serial no it says cant start cos libusb0.dll was not found

    seriously fed up with it now why cant they just make a programme easy to use that will find the JB dongle its just too complicated
    the people who run the site dont give a toss( http://www.psjailbreak.com/index )
    iv emailed them loads of times for assistance and not had 1 single reply
