If you find the itme you get is not a authentic product, please contact the site where you buy from , ask them to change a new one for you, they should do it.

How to use the PS3 break to jailbreak your PS3
Items i use:
1. Slim PS3 (system V3.41) 120G
2. PS3 break V1.2
3.A USB flash drive
4.PS3 game hdd with some games
Before you do the jailbreak,you should click here to download the backupmanager and save it to the root of the empty USB flash drive.
Everything is ready, let's go!
Step1: Cut off the power of the PS3, very importmant!
if your PS3 is fat , there is a power button behind , just power-off. If your PS3 is slim and you have a switch(please look at the picture), just use the switch to make the power cut off. If your slim don't have the switch, just unplug the socket of PS3. Anyway, make sure the PS3 power button lamp is dead(off,black).Just look at the picture, you will understand everything.
Step2: Connect the PS3 break v1.2 to the PS3 USB interface(anyone is ok)
Notice:the power is still cut off .
Step3 :Press the switch button to the left , then the PS3 power button is on(red)
Step4: Pree the PS3 power button and then press the blu-ray Eject button
Actually don't need to do it at the same time, so don't need to be in a rush.After you do it, The PS3 power button and Eject button will be light(from red to blue) at the same time , the PS3 break lamp is blinking for about 5 seconds , then it stops blinking and stay light (blue), After this step ,congratulations, you jailbreak it successfully!LOL If you fail,means you mistake some of the steps, please follow the steps in order strictly.
There are two things need to notice:
1. Make sure all of the power is cut off before you press the switch!
2. There are two USB connectors, make sure one is for PS3 break , the other is empty when you do the jailbreak.
Step5: Install the back up manager..
After you jailbreak it,connect your USB flash drive (which contains the Back Up manager file) to the another PS3 USB connector.
Then choose the "game" in XMB and then there is a "Install Package files", just click it and install the back up manager.
Notice: Don't pull out the PS3 break as long as you use it to play games from internal or external hdd.
Step6: Find a game to play!
I have 5 games on my PS3 internal game hdd
Run NBA 2k10
