Video Daily: PSGroove working with TI-84 Plus calculator Last month PSJailbreak showed the world that the PS3's security model was open to be exploited, and Sony was quick to shut down the project.
Last week, PSGroove, the "open source PSJailbreak," was released to the masses, giving owners a chance to jailbreak their PS3 for a lot cheaper than the $170 PSJailbreak.

The code can be run on a hacked a $25 Teensy++ USB development board or a $30 AT90USBkey, and now, on a TI-84 calculator.

Writes Brandon Wilson, who created the jailbreak for the calculators: PS3JB is a FLASH application for the TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition that implements the PSGroove exploit for the Playstation 3 console. By connecting a USB cable between a PS3 and your calculator and running the application, you can trigger the PSGroove exploit from your graphing calculator.

There is more info (if you are a TI-84 owner) here: PS3JB - PS3 Jailbreak for TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition

Unless you need it for school or something (It's an older-model Graphing Calculator) I wouldn't recommend it. The cheapest one I could find was $40 shipped on eBay, most were $55+.

Assuming updates for the Jailbreak still use Teensy++ or AT90USBkey you'd be better off waiting for places to get them back in stock.

Yes updates still use Teensy and now there are so many cloned keys you can practically find them anywhere from $30 - $80.

This isn't news...the ti84 was on the original list of supported devices...you might as well announce that it now works with the Teensy!

Yes, it was announced as an originally approved device.

The reason for this "news" article, it appears, is because the video shows that PSGroove actually works with the TI-84/Plus.
