USB Dongles: There is a whole slew of USB dongles claiming a plug n play type of usability. PS Jailbreaker being the first of the lot comes now in just 20$.there are others with price range of 25-35$ .Most of them do the job just right, at least up to firmware v3.1. Though newer dongles claim to jailbreak firmware V3.41 and 3.5 but it is not clear how many of them will really do the job. (PSGroove and PSFreedom work with v3.5 firmware).

Jailbreaking PS3 with Android mobiles / with Calculators !!! This is insane , but very true. One can jailbreak PS3 firmaware V3.41 and even 3.5 with a calculator !! Here is a proof..
Few words of wisdom – If you have your Playstation 3 with firmware 3.1 or lower ,just be happy and don’t jump blindly into upgrading to a newer version of firmware just for the sake of doing it.Do it if you really need to do it. Older versions of firmware are in a better place when it comes to jailbreaking and it always takes some time to bring jailbreaks for newer versions.
Jailbreaking is easy with USB dongles and it does not voids any warranty from Sony (though its not legal) as it works only when you have USB dongle attached to your playstation 3. The time you take out the USB dongle your PS3 comes back to its earlier state. This is also true for most of the others methods involving PSgroove and PSfreedom , just check out the specific details before trying any method.
