    People are saying: "Rumor has it the PSP doesn't allow changing the device address, making a port impossible"

    From twitter.

    the cool thing about all this is it's also being ported to android handsets for use. btw the dev did release a video of the n900 booting psgroove on the ps3.

    I'd certainly would like a winmo version as well. Though there doesn't seem to be any traction for this in xda or any other major programming forums.

    I've been trying to see how things are going there, but to be honest its a lot of noise and not much actual progress. Most of the android people are just scammers looking for 'donations' to be on the beta and obviously have no idea what they're talking about. Not hearing anything on the WinMo or Blackberry fronts so I doubt the Blackberry version is finished. The only serious talk is on the PSP side, and that's looking increasingly bad as well.

    I just built the module for my Motorola Droid, but it won't load. Something else is using the USB port. So close.

    edit: I think I got it! Compiling now. only negative effect? breaks USB support on the Droid until you flash another kernel. [​IMG] The Droid's hardware is very very similar to the N900 and Pre's, so the only thing interfering with it was the Android USB drivers.

    Does this do the same thing as PS jailbreak?

    Is it to backup stuff?

    Can somebody explain it to me?

    psgroove is an opensource alternative to psjailbreak but has no bd emulation support
    psfreedom is a simple modification of psgroove to allow bd emulation

    various devices are now recieving ports of psgroove/psfreedom such as n900 and the dingoo

    what it does is starts your console in debug mode so that you can run unsigned code such as the psjailbreak backup manager
    ps groove won't allow you to play your backups (not sure if you can dump them with it)
    where as ps freedom will allow you to play your backups from internal/external hdd (will act exactly the same as a 'legitimate' psjailbreak dongle)

    In case it hasn't been clear enough there are 2 parts.

    First is the exploit itself. This requires a USB device to be plugged into the PS3, which will place the PS3 into a developer/diagnostic mode. In this mode the PS3 will run unsigned code/homebrew/etc.

    The second is the backup manager for copying and loading the PS3 games, the 'unsigned code' from above. This a separate thing which has already been widely available.

    Most of the news these days have been about the USB device to run the exploit, and what devices can be used to run the exploit.

    HD2 can run Android too. So you're good if they port it to Android.

    It's not that simple. Each different USB controller has to be accounted for and that varies a lot across devices. For example both the Pre and Pixi run WebOS but this module won't work if compiled for the Pixi. While at the same time a module designed for the Pixi and an Android device that uses the same chipset like the Hero would work on both.

    I got the module to compile and run on my Droid, but the exploit doesn't work despite the similarity with the N900 and Pre [​IMG]
