Steps To Jailbreak Playstation 3 (PS3) With USB / Modchip

The PlayStation 3 is the third home video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment and the successor to the PlayStation 2 as part of the PlayStation series.

Spanish site Elotrolado has a full blown review, along with instructions on how you can use it to create backups of your PS3 games.This proves that PS Jailbreak works for real.

Here’s the complete step by step guideline to jailbreak your PS3.

Disclaimer: The guide below is only for testing and educational purpose. You will be responsible for any possible damage caused.

Necessary things:

# PS3 with Firmware 3.41 installed
# A FAT32 formatted external USB storage with a copy of Backup Manager on it
# PS3 Jailbreak Mod Chip

The steps are as follows:

Step 1:

Power off your console and make sure that there isn’t any disc in the Blu-ray drive.
For the SLIM Model: Remove the power chord before plugging in the USB.
For the FAT model: Turn off the power switch found at the backside of the console.

Step 2:

Now insert the USB based PS Jailbreak Modchip to any USB port of your choice on the console. Once the USB is in place, Power ON the console and immediately press the “Eject” button. There should now be two LEDs turned-on on the USB as the console is loading.

If the LED light on the USB turns green, you are good to go as the PS Jailbreak has been successfully loaded.

If the LED turns red, then it means that the PS Jailbreak Modchip didn’t load successfully. This usually happens when the Power and Eject button sequence wasn’t performed properly. Start from Step 1 again if you end up having the red light.

Step 3:

Once the Jailbreak mod-chip loads, connect the USB with Backup Manager on it.

Step 4:

Naviage to “Game Menu” and select the option “Install Package Files”. Select “manager.pkg” which will basically install Backup Manager for you.

Step 5:

Once the Back Up Manager is installed, select the Back Up Manager from game menu and press X button to run it.

Step 6:

After you have opened the Back Up Manager, put in a DVD of the game and press “O”. You will be asked then whether to make a back up on the internal HDD or the external USB storage device.

Step 7:

To load a previously created back up, insert any original game DVD in console then select the desired back up from the Back Up Manager and press X to play the selected game. You can also delete your previously created back up by pressing /\.

Step 8:

You will automatically be redirected to the main menu where you can see the game installed and ready to be played.

That’s all.

Warning: Once the jailbreak is installed on the console, it can’t be uninstalled or removed.

    I am using an ‘USB Break’ and following the instructions but I am not given the ‘Install Package Files’ option when I attach my USB drive with the backup manager. The USB Break flashes green a couple of times when booting but the LED doesn’t stay on, is that normal?
