=================================================

Unpacking:

The PSGo comes in a simple blister type packaging with a piece a cardboard in between holding everything in with all the details of what the product does on the back.





Once the packaging is removed you will have the P3Go as shown


and the G-Switch



The P3Go is has a rubber like coating, it fells very sturdy, it comes with a plastic & rubber cap also.
It is noted though that it is huge, you can see by the picture below I compared it to the PS3Key:



It also has a MicroSDHC slot located on the side of the unit pictured below.


The MicroSD once inserted doesnt stick out from the unit.



Now the interesting thing with this jailbreak is that it features a 128MB built in SLC NAND flash memory.
It also features an onboard CPU and SDRM

you can see now why its so big compared to others


=================================================

Testing:

When you plug the P3Go in a computer USB slot it will show up as a 128MB flash drive + removable memory for the MicroSD slot
The P3Go already came with pkg files on it already making it noob friendly, you can easily drop your own pkg files to it or remove the ones already there
It also came with game covers for backup manager

Its a nice addition so you do not have to search for them yourself

The P3Go has a nice blue light under the team logo on the front of the unit, there is also a blue and red lights on the end of it as you can see below


Updating the P3Go is very simply, you download the update file from their website and place the update file onto the internal flash memory of the P3Go
remove it and plug it back in, the red light with a blink a few times then stay lit, this means flashing is complete. The whole process only takes about 5 secs.
The update process will also delete the update.bin file from the flash memory, also a nice touch.

Another thing to be noted is that the P3Go has a dual boot feature, it can boot either Hermes or PL3 payload, this is determined by the presence of the MicroSD in the slot.
If no microsd is in inserted it will boot hermes V4b, if there is one then the latest PL3 payload will be loaded. A very neat add on so you dont have to keep changing payloads.

Using the P3Go is like any other jailbreak device, you insert it into the PS3 usb port, turn on the power switch and hit power quickly by eject.
The P3Go rear blue led will be lit if it is successful, if not then the red lit will be lit.


You can start installing pkg files now. A modified backup manager will included on the P3Go from the G-team

unfortunately though I am presented with a white screen every time I launch it, other people have reported success so it might just be my pkg file.

Normal backup managers work fine as Ive tested many from OM to BM2, Gaia, and many other. All work with no problems. Same goes for homebrew everything works great,

Now the G-Switch is meant for PS3 Slim's. It goes in between the PS3 and the power cord to create a power interrupt switch. This means you do not have to unplug your PS3 slim anymore to restart jailbreak mode.

I do not have a PS3 (it will not fit in the PS3 fat) but I was able to test on a laptop power cord and can confirm it works fine. A nice addon for PS3 Slim owners.




=================================================

Conclusion:

Overall I am very impressed with the P3Go, it has a very rich set of features and great hardware to accompany it.

Pros:
+Very good price
+Upgradeable via USB
+Allows game backups & homebrew
+Supports external USB HDD
+Does not void warranty
+Works on both fat and slim PS3's from any region
+Built in 128MB SLC NAND
+Onboard CPU & RAM
+MicroSD slot
+Allows PSN access
+Comes with G-Switch for easy shutoff of PS3 Slim


Cons:
-Very big compared to other devices
-Only works on firmware 3.41 or less right now
-Not open source (coming soon)

=================================================

once again I would like to thank Lightake for sending me this sample to review. :yayps3:

Nice review. I can take that switch off your hands and do a review entirely on the switch. [:

I actually am really interested in this tool though. Isn't it supposed to get PSGroove support soon?

psgroove is already supported as it can run hermes and pl3 payloads

also it has been open sourced as of yesterday so I will remove that from the cons list and add it to the pros
psn access has been removed from the pro's as all jailbreak devices dont work online anymore

The team usually usually updates it the first day or the next
but now that it is open source should probably be mins after a new payload comes out

Thanksgiving Day Special Core

1. Support the Hex files of all versions AVR/PIC electronic dog, and collect the payload to load automatically.
2. Support hermes and kakaroto version and other customized version
3. Do not need to upload the firmware, to help the users obtain the support of the newest functional payload conveniently
4. If there are errors, just delete the “psgroove.hex”, it will not influence the built-in firmware, it is safe and reliable.

Use method
Copy the hex files to the root of U disk, and change to psgroove.hex. Do not insert TF card when use this function.
