    well the reversed engineered psjailbreak code has been released with the pirating tools stripped from it (no backup functions for ps3 games) but for pure homebrew on the ps3. the sources are out with instructions with how to compile them and instructions on how to flash them onto the usb flash device. main problem, people need to flash their own usb device themselves to be able to take advantage of this tool because it requires a Teensy++ USB Development Board or AT90USBKEY. anyhoo not exactly sure if there are rules to posting url's to gethub source code links. or if the mods want me to post the sources as is. so here it is. (if posting the gethub link violates posting rules mods and or admin plz remove the url and inform me plz)

    PSGroove GetHub source code

    Do you need to do any modding to the USB?

    Downloading now, oh and if you know where to look you can find a version with "back up" capabilities patched back in, thata the one I'm grabbing right now and its already finished downloading. [​IMG]


    Can't wait for my Teensy ++ to get here. [​IMG]

    did a comparison with the qj release and the one from the get hub there is no difference when they built psgroove they basically removed the backup capabilities and made it specifically for homebrew. i'm sure someone out there will figure out what it had removed and re-add it to the source code and release itor create a homebrew app for doing such things.

    I am slightly confused here as to what I need to use this. Can I just buy the Teensy++ Board and connect it to this and then connect it to my PC and then PS3?
    I really have no idea when it comes to this kind of stuff [​IMG]

    bisicly you buy a board. compile the code. program the psgroove into the board you purchased and your all set plug it into the ps3 and pres the eject button after start and you will be able to enjoy the homebrew to it's fullest.

    not my method, stolen from a post on ps3news..

    add backup loading back into psgroove:

    search for
    Code:
    0x78, 0x78, 0x78,
    0x78,
    (on end of line 139 and start of line 140)
    in the descriptor.h file

    and change to:
    Code:
    0x62, 0x64, 0x76,
    0x64,
    method thanks to CJPC, reposting due to ps3news being temporarily down..

    for those curious what this does.. you are changing the string 'xxxx' to 'bdvd'

    now the only thing i don't see is why backup loading would be needed. unless your to lazy to get up and change discs when you want to play another game. true the hdd would be faster. but is it really worth filling a hard drive for it? anyhoo good post on how to re-enable the method going to have to try it when my board comes in.

    btw 431unknown

    why would they leave that info in? anyways it could be for package files of all we know.
    see i'm throwin this out there because unless tested theres no telling if it will actually work.

    I think who ever put up the description just copy and pasted the info from where ever he got the file originally. I chalk it up to just plain old lazzyness.


    edit: Would it be ok if i uploaded this to filetrip im getting alot of pm'S for it?

    edit #2; just submitted it to filetrip in PS3 » Tools & Utilities » Flash Dump & Modchip Tools
    file name is psgroove

    FYI you better order a teensy/at90usbkey NOW, online stores are already running out of stock and it's gonna be a long wait for them to restock

    Digikey isn't shipping new units til november 29th

    I can't find a single distributor who still has any in stock actually, and lead-in times are all 6weeks+

    I purchased the AT90USB162 microcontroller. As of 3:19pm EST time they still had them in stock. This particular board's on the list of those that are confirmed working. I should receive this by Monday by the latest! Good luck.

    UPDATE: I just received an e-mail stating that the item's out of order but the lead time's only 1 week opposed to other sites that are 6+ weeks out.

    I wonder how long it will be before something is released to play backups from a bluray disc and ACE R shows up on torrent sites?
