Looks very similar to PS3Go. seem to be a clone

This page seem to prove above theory about PS3Go based:

P3Go GT-break[edit]

MCU : Ingenic XBurst JZ4755 (32bit 400MHz) - LQFP176, 20mm x 20mm
RAM : Hynix HY57V641620?.T.P-6 (CMOS 3.3V, 64M [4K refresh] x16, , 4banks, LVTTL, ?, normal power, TSOP, PC100 CL2)
NAND: Samsung K9F1G08U0C-PCB0 (1Gbit 59nm 3.3Volt SLC NAND)
TF/microSDHC slot
32768Hz (pins 71-72) and 24MHz base clock (pins 46-47), 15x multiplier, 360MHz ARM like MCU, resulting in 500 MIPS
There are 2 SKU's of the P3Go GT-break, only difference is a switch at the backend to switch between internal SLC-NAND and TF/microSDHC. Other (most common) version uses the TF/microSDHC presence detect switch.

P3GO CPU Ingenic XBurst JZ4755.jpg

JZ4755 is the only CPU of the Xburst series with size 20mmx20mm and 176 pins, comfirmed in P3GO v1 (green board)... needs confirmation for others boards (but its almost sure all shares the same, because the other CPU's uses a BGA package, and the only other one possible is one LQFP128 that seems to be older)

The driver provided by P3GO and PS3usercheat manufacturers only contains identifyers for 4740 and 4750 CPU's (windows XP installs the driver fine, displays the device with a yellow interrogation mark, and is identifyed as 4750). There is another driver provided by ingenic semiconductors that maybe is a newer version, but the link is broken :/ It comes with a (maybe newer) version of the "recover tool"

There is lot of linux support, included bootloader, kernel images, sources, etc, etc...

And android (lol)

interesting pins

BOOT MODE (used in P3go for the "dual payload" feature)
BOOT_SEL1 (pin 93) = 1 -----> NAND flash
BOOT_SEL1 (pin 93) = 0 -----> SD card

SDATO (pin 89) out
SDATI (pin 88) in

P3GO all official releases collection:

  • There is nothing newer than 2011 in this collection to speculate or make drama about it (other than the text edits i did in the Features.txt and Changelog.txt). Has been uploaded for archiving purposes, to document one side of the "clonewar" P3GO and PS3usercheat manufacturers had

P3GO offcial releases[edit]

  • 2010 september ??? - P3GO GT-break released
    • announces "P3GO GT-break" a "next generation" dongle with impressive technical characteristics: 32bits@500MHz CPU, 16MB SDRAM, 128MB NAND, microSD card slot, linux support, a promised open SDK, and some onboard features like drag&drop updates, dual boot, etc...
    • The dongle comes with a clone of "gaia backup manager" preinstalled in path /dev_usb000/PS3_GAME/USRDIR/EBOOT.BIN (root of P3GO NAND), the program is mounted automatically at app_home/PS3_GAME/ icon in XMB game column
    • packages included in the P3GO NAND: backup manager_V2.pkg, ftpserver_12.pkg, GMAN74113.pkg, OpenManager1.17.2.pkg, UP0001-GAIA01985_00-7679866932773369-GAMEZ.pkg
  • 20101022 - P3GO firmware v2
    • Dual boot (from NAND or from microSD card)
  • 20101026 - P3GO firmware v3
    • Fixed a bug in HDD permissions
  • 20101111 - P3GO firmware v04
    • Updater from nand (not needed a microSD card to update)
    • PSN fixes
  • 20101112 - P3GO firmware v05
    • Stability fixes

    • Special development version
    • Released open SDK
  • 20101126 - P3GO firmware v09

  • 20101129 - Recover tool
    • Released the frst version of the recover tool, a low level program that can restore the normal operation of the dongle by overwriting his bootloader
    • The file fw.bin (that seems to be the bootloader) and the drivers for windows (when the dongle is connected to the pc in "recover mode" is recognized by windows as a new hardware device) are the same than the next release of the recover tool and the ps3usercheat "fix_it" tool
  • 20101208 - P3GO firmware v10
    • Announced as "downgrade support" is a "PS3 service mode" payload integrated in the dongle firmware
  • 2011 march ??? - PS3usercheat released
    • The hardware is the same than P3GO, theorically are resellers or both shares a common manufacturer
    • The dongle comes with a cheat software "codeunique v1" that is an improved clone of "gaia backup manager" installed in the onboard NAND of the dongle, is mounted automatically at APP_HOME icon in XMB
  • 20110326 - P3GO firmware v11 (for ofw 3.41)
    • Support the cheat function and can load the game from the hard disk
    • This release includes "Code Manager v1" (his ICON0.PNG says "code freak by cybergadget", and the program contains several logos of ps3usercheat)
    • Code Manager needs to be installed in path /dev_usb000/CHT/USRDIR/EBOOT.BIN (root of P3GO NAND), the program is mounted automatically at app_home/PS3_GAME/ icon in XMB game column
    • Spoof 3.66
  • 20110522 - P3GO firmware v12 (for cfw 3.55 kmeaw)
    • Support for 3.55 cfw
    • New version of "recover tool" (seems there are some differences with the previous version of recover, e.g: the NAND OOBSIZE value in USBBoot.cfg)
    • There was a re-release of this package (im not sure if comes from the official page) that includes 2 cloned copies of "code unique": CODEUNIQUE_355_auto_detect.pkg, and CHET11111_ONLY CHEAT_355.pkg ("code unique v2.0" clones reselfed and repackaged?)
    • There is also an announce that some users reported failures when installing v12 firmware in first generation boards (the green ones) they announce to recover the dongle with the "recover tool" (honestly? this was a mess, it depends of the firmware installed in the dongle and they never said the recover versions was different, is not clear wich one to use for each type of brick/board)
  • Next moths...
    • All references from the v12 release are erased from the official web ( and all download links broken during months, no more support

dongless ps3usercheat[edit]

Dongle cracked by oct0xor

I am not a lone wolf and say thanks to all who helps me anyhow with this: @flat_z. <3
Also thanks to Baphometh from who donated dongle to me.
If you like my work you can donate :)

news/discussion mention[edit]

page is mentioned at we need to check topic is anything interesting floats above (like old files that where no longer available) - or even better, people from that topic can add info to this page. To make sure we did not miss something (e.g. dongle variant, more pictures would be nice etc.)
