    Here is my review of PS3 True Blue, i am not a professional reviewer, but i will try my best to give you guys more details about it, and you can also say it is a step by step PS3 true blue user guide. ok, let's get it started.


    Received my PS3 True Blue from digitopz here: PS3 JailBreak 2 USB dongle True Blue Shipping fast and working great, a trustworthy site i recommend if you plan to get one!

    At first, let's take a look at the PS3 True Blue package. Look at the pic below, it is a very simple package, no box, just a plastic bag with PS3 True Blue inside. Can not simpler any more.

    Step1: Make sure your PS3 is in V3.55 system, either OFW(official firmware) or CFW(official firmware). Which means if your PS3 is lower than V3.55, just update it to V3.55, if you dont know how to do it, PM me! if your PS3 is higher than V3.55, sorry, you can not use this item. please use E3 flasher to downgrade your PS3 to V3.55 first.


    Step2: When your PS3 is in V3.55, you need to install the PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW. Here is the method on how to install PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW.The update method is just the same as update the official firmware via USB storage.
    • Download the PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW
    • Extract the file, you will get "TrueBlue-3.55-CFW" folder, you can see "PS3UPDAT.PUP" inside.
    • Prepare a USB storage, create a folder named "PS3"in the root of your USB storage, then create another folder named "UPDATE" in the "PS3" folder, in the end put the "PS3UPDAT.PUP" in the "UPDATE" folder. So it is: USB storage----PS3----UPDATE----PS3UPDAT.PUP
    • Insert your USB storage into your PS3 USB interface and power on your PS3.
    • Move to the system update option and choose update via USB storage.
    • Choose the PS3UPDAT.PUP and start updating, go and drink a beer, wait until it finishes updating. Don't do anything during the update progress.
    • Your PS3 will be in PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW after the installation.
    Step3: Update your PS3 True blue to the latest version V2.3.
    • Download the True Blue (JB2) PS3 Update v2.3
    • Extract the file you will get "TrueBlueUpdate-2.3.pkg"
    • Put the "TrueBlueUpdate-2.3.pkg" file in your USB storage.
    • Insert the USB storage into your PS3 and then install the pkg file in your PS3.
    • After you finish the installation, you will see the "True blue Update V2.3"
    • Click the "True blue Update V2.3" it will ask you to insert your PS3 True Blue. then insert your PS3 True Blue.
    • Go on the update procress to finish the update.

    After this step, you have installed the PS3 True Blue successfully. Let's go and start playing a game. i will take "FEAR 3" as an example.
    Notice: you need to replace the PS3 true blue eboot for the V3.60+ games before you play the games, The method please see my another post here: How to replace the PS3 True Blue Eboot files for your V3.60+ games


    it means you need to download the both FEAR 3 game file and also F.E.A.R.3_EBOOT_PATCH_TB_ PS3-PARADOX if you dont do this step,the screen will freeze and change black. ok i have downloaded those files and also have patched it, let's go.
    1. Before you power on the PS3, just insert the PS3 True Blue and the your game HDD.
    2. Login Multiman and find the FEAR3
    3. Press X to login the game
    4. It will take you back to XMB
    5. Go to "app_home/PS3_GAME/" and click it to play FEAR3
    6. Done, congratulations!

    What makes this different then a USB to sdhc adaptor that looks just like It? Couldn't you just load the cfw intended for the tru-blu onto a regular adaptor, (as stated before) containing a micro sdhc? Is there special chips inside the tru-blu that make It different from a regular adaptor?

    yeah, it is different, you can not use a regular dongle to play V3.56+ games on V3.55 PS3. That's what PS3 true blue can do. We need to install the TB CFW first, but also need to insert the TN when using it.. I don't know what's the difference, but it is different. :(

    it kinda sucks that we have to PAY AGAIN for a dongle...

    but the PS3 scene/community users are plain horrible. It's a pity really.

    I kinda want to buy a true blue, but the last time i bought a dongle... CFW showed up, i spent 60€ on a Teensy board for nothing basically.

    I will wait a little bit longer for new CFW so I dont want to make a mistake twice for my PS3YES dongle about two years ago or less. Anyway, good job but the 2.3 update was outdated.

    Change log:
    -----------

    - v2.5

    * Requires True Blue CFW v2
    * Game compatibility fixes

    Credit goes to psxscene. Enjoy! :)
