So I was recently looking through the PlayStation hacking scene and I discovered something very interesting!

This little device allows you to do pretty amazing things. The most amazing is that it does NOT void your warranty! That's right, as long as you have the proper versions of things you will not be having to void anything.

Now this little device does cost about 20 dollars, but as long as you have the money for that and extra hard drive space you can start playing homebrew (programs made for the PS3 or other devices by home developers and not professionals) and game backups.

From what I've read... you have to have system version 3.15 or lower in order to use this device, but I've also seen you can have up to 3.41 of the system menus. Either way, if you're willing and able to do this crazy stuff, I actually think you should. Of course, there's always a chance of bricking your device... so again, don't try anything unless you're sure you want to go through with it. The PS3 is a complex machine and therefore the technology to hack it is not complete. Use it as your own risk, but have fun if you do use it!

  7. Neat little device but lucky for me my Nexus One Android phone can do pretty much the same thing. Although it is rather inconvenient so I am considering a dedicated device such as this one.

  19. Ownage tastes like chicken: It is a USB device. You plug it in a USB slot to do homebrew.
