Just got a new ps3 jailbreak clone sent out from Lightake.com . The appearance of ps3speed is pretty similar with PS3Yes , it works as promised , the main difference from other clones is that it is very convenient to upgrade (no drivers needed) and the price is competitive ($20 price tag).
The ps3speed came in a small plastic case just like many other clone .
Upon opening the case and removing the ps3speed , it's very similar with ps3yes , doesn't it ?
The device is using a "Atmel" controller chip which is easily upgradeable via a PC USB slot:
