PSJigger v1.0 - 18F2455 Jailbreak Device
PSJigger v1.0 - 18F2455 Jailbreak Device –
Hey guys! While my account here may be new, I have plenty of experience over on X-S (Account: AfterTheInsanity), so please dont take my post count into your judgement when viewing this thread Now, on to business...
Ive just put together 10x PSJiggers, hot and ready to be plugged into your PS3!
- core is a PIC18F2455 @ 20MHz
- integrated, driver-less bootloader comes pre-programmed - just upload your favorite code!
- upgrading is simple - plug it into your computer, press the bootloader button, and flash new code
- plugs right into the PS3 - no cable necessary
- status LEDs to indicate Jig activity/bootloader mode
- ICSP header so advanced users can reprogram the bootloader
Front & back:
(Sorry for the blurry pictures, new ones will be up within a day or two! )
1. Download the flashing software
2. Download the latest PSGrooPIC firmware from here - the build you want is "BEEPIC"
1. Open USB-Bootloader-Software.exe
2. Plug in PSJigger
3. Press bootloader button -> LEDs should look like police lights (may not be necessary the first time)
4. Click "Open Hex File" and select the firmware you downloaded
5. Click "Program/Verify" -> you should see a couple messages, and then the device will be re-detected as a Generic USB Hub. It is now flashed!
1. Turn the PS3 off
2. Plug the PSJigger into the leftmost/bottom-most USB port
3. Press power, then quickly press eject
4. You should see red, then blue light. Success!
Now, Im offering a special introductory price of $20 Canadian for the first 10. After they are all gone, I will undoubtedly make more if there is interest, but the price will go up to $25! Better hurry!
Shipping costs are $3 to Canada, $4 to the USA, and $5 International. The PSJigger will be packaged inside an anti-static bag, and then in a bubble-wrap envelope. I can ship any method you prefer as long as you are willing to pay the cost.
Feel free to PM me, Ill do my best to get back to you. I will update this post with quantities/better pictures/anything else that comes up. Thanks!

by the sounds of your post, you make it sound like these are some hand-soldered PIC boards you made, but when you look closely there is a name printed on the pcb. are you beginning to professionally manufacture these?
looks are alright. i noticed the five ports on the end of the board, are those expansion ports? if so, that is VERY cool, a true dev board like the minimus, even though the minimus does have quite a few more ports.
all in all, looks like you've got a good product there. are you planning on getting cases for these at some point?
Ive hand-soldered the entire board (as well as designing it and ordering all the parts - Im an EE major), but I had the boards made by a professional service. I made boards for a product I was selling on my own awhile ago, but I found they were too inconsistent for my liking. Plus, this way I get my name on the board!
The five points on the end are the ICSP header - if you notice, the holes are offset enough so you can slide a header in to program/reprogram the bootloader, but you dont need to solder it, as the offset is enough to make electrical contact. There are 2 actual I/O pins in that header, so I suppose it could be considered an expansion port. If/when I do the next run of boards, I can always add more I/O if theyre useful.
Cases Id never really thought of until Id investigated some of the other products on the market, but personally I like the look of a bare PCB I have no idea where to even begin sourcing cases thatd fit, so thats not a top priority at the moment.
Thanks for the comments!
Complete Newbert to the PS jailbreak scene here.
Is this all I would need to play my "backups"
Let us know whtas up bro. aRe you willing to ship to USa, and these will allow installation of backup manager right?
I've seen the PSGrooPIC blog and, what is the difference between this board and for example that appears in this blog, the BEEPIC?
AFAIK you still need to put something like Gaia on a USB stick or hdd and install it - this is just for the "jailbreak"
