It is not cheap and not an easy ride either. That if you want to play the latest PS3 game titles on your dusty 3.55 CFW powered console.
A dongle called JB2 (Jailbreak 2) facilitate you to just that. It has been reported that the device is created by a team called KADO from Indonesia. Unusual for a dongle manufacturer not to be originated from China.
It doesn’t matter though, if it can do the dirty work for you, or at least of what has been claimed. FIFA 12, PES 2012 among games reportedly working with the dongle.
JB2 is basically just like your average PS3 dongle, stick it on your console and let it do the rest for you except this one requires backed up game to be burned on Blu-ray disc.
And according to one of it’s retailer, your PS3 should not be the one downgraded from a firmware above 3.55 FW.
In a case where you had 3.73 firmware on the console and you use certain trick or a dongle such as E3 flasher to downgrade it then the whole thing won’t work.
So, there’s that and if you are still keen to get it, the price of the dongle is not that cheap. JB2 will be available for a price around 50 dollars and each burned PS3 game on Blu-ray disc would cost you approximately at 9 dollars.
A lot of influential people in the scene are very skeptical about this, though. GaryOPA formerly known as psx-scene admin called it as the biggest scam of the year and frankly, greg from Dashhacks agreed.
But, i believe this is the real deal and the fact that the possibility of playing Uncharted 3 on jailbroken console is there to look forward to is quite exciting. Let’s just hope someone can come up with a review soon.
