    PS3Jig - PS3 Factory/Service Mode "Jig" Dongle for Sony PSP

    PS3Jig - PS3 Factory/Service Mode "Jig" Dongle for Sony PSP

    PS3Jig is a homebrew program for the PSP that emulates the official Sony "jig" stick for entering Factory/Service mode. All you need to do is attach a USB cable between your PS3 and PSP, run the program, and turn on your PS3, just like any other downgrade/service mode method.

    AS OF THIS WRITING, THERE IS NO WAY TO EXIT FACTORY/SERVICE MODE ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56, SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE!

    Keep in mind that I'm not a PSP developer, and that I know very little about homebrew for it; my ability to answer questions about how to run it and troubleshoot any issues is severely limited.

    This application is open source and has no license attached to it, so you're free to do whatever you want with it; but please don't slap your name on it and call it your own, it's just rude.

    m8 I don't own a PS3! lol

    I only posted as I hadn't seen it here n thought it might be of interest.

    I've been tempted by the PS3 now GT5 is finally released but I can't justify to myself the layout for one game!

    I sorta agree, but thought the possible ability to unbrick a bad flash was a useful extra tool if you own a PSP. Also you never know where these projects might lead.

    What's the main purpose of this?
    To enter Factory/Service Mode on your PS3 using your PSP. This is typically used to downgrade your PS3's firmware version to something that supports homebrew/backups, or you can use it to unbrick some PS3s from a firmware flash gone bad.
