Well, today i have received a PS3 break2 from digitopz site. thanks for them. i'd like to do a step by step guide in this forum. Here we go.
PS3 Break 2 is another PS3 USB dongle reelased by PS3 break team. PS3 break team is very famous in two years ago when they released their first item---ps3 break, it was the first grneration of ps3 jailbreak dongle. Now they have released the PS3 break 2 dongle which is used for playing V3.56+ games on your V3.55 PS3. In this review, i will just tell you guys how to install PS3 break2. And also testing a V3.56 game with it. Let's get it started.
Notice: As we know that PS3 Break 2 is another clone of PS3 true blue. so the installation of PS3 break2 is just the same as PS3 true blue and very easy as well. Some of the steps in this post are just the same as my PS3 true blue user guide, because they are completely the same.
At first, just take a look the PS3 break 2 package, the PS3 Break 2 package is just the same as their first product PS3 break.
How to use the PS3 break 2
Step1: Make sure your PS3 is in V3.55 system, either OFW(official firmware) or CFW(official firmware). Which means if your PS3 is lower than V3.55, just update it to V3.55, if you dont know how to do it, PM me! if your PS3 is higher than V3.55, sorry, you can not use this item. please use E3 flasher to downgrade your PS3 to V3.55 first.
Step2: When your PS3 is in V3.55, you need to install the PS3 Break 2 V3.55 CFW. Here is the method on how to install PS3 Break 2 V3.55 CFW.The update method is just the same as update the official firmware via USB storage.
- Download the PS3 Break 2 V3.55 CFW
- Extract the file, you will get "PS3 Break 2 V3.55 CFW" folder, you can see "PS3UPDAT.PUP" inside.
- Prepare a USB storage, create a folder named "PS3"in the root of your USB storage, then create another folder named "UPDATE" in the "PS3" folder, in the end put the "PS3UPDAT.PUP" in the "UPDATE" folder. So it is: USB storage----PS3----UPDATE----PS3UPDAT.PUP
- Insert your USB storage into your PS3 USB interface and power on your PS3.
- Move to the system update option and choose update via USB storage.
- Choose the PS3UPDAT.PUP and start updating, go and drink a beer, wait until it finishes updating. Don't do anything during the update progress.
- Your PS3 will be in PS3 Break 2 V3.55 CFW after the installation.
Step3: Update your PS3 break 2 to the latest version V1.01.
- Download the PS3 break 2 V1.01 update
- Extract the file you will get "PS3 Break 2 V1.01.pkg"
- Put the "PS3 Break 2 V1.01.pkg" file in your USB storage.
- Insert the USB storage into your PS3 and then install the pkg file in your PS3.
- After you finish the installation, you will see the "PS3 Break 2 V1.01.pkg"
- Click the "PS3 Break 2 V1.01.pkg" it will ask you to insert your PS3 True Blue. then insert your PS3 True Blue.
- Go on the update procress to finish the update.
After the step 3, you have installed the PS3 break 2 successfully. Let's go and start playing a game. i will take "FEAR 3" as an example.
Notice: you need to replace the PS3 true blue eboot for the V3.60+ games before you play the games, The method please see my another post here: How to replace the PS3 True Blue Eboot files for your V3.60+ games
it means you need to download the both FEAR 3 game file and also F.E.A.R.3_EBOOT_PATCH_TB_ PS3-PARADOX if you dont do this step,the screen will freeze and change black. ok i have downloaded those files and also have patched it, let's go.
- Before you power on the PS3, just insert the PS3 break 2 and the your game HDD.
- Login Multiman and find the FEAR3
- Press X to login the game
- It will take you back to XMB
- Go to "app_home/PS3_GAME/" and click it to play FEAR3
- Done, congratulations!
After i test a few other games, they are all working great as well. Until now, PS3 Break 2 can play about 130 V3.56+ games.
So far, this item is not a bad item compared to PS3 true blue, at least the price is much chaper, digitopz is his official reseller, sells at about 50USD including shipping fee, which is about 20USD cheaper than PS3 true blue. Hope PS3 break team can release a new update to support more games as soon as possiable.
