The PlayStation mod known as 'PSJailbreak' has apparently seen so much demand that it has sold out.
Shoppsjailbreak (which operates out of the USA) has announced that it has run out of the USB hacking tool, which allows PS3 owners to copy games to the hard drive play the backup games.
The site posted this message earlier today:
***NEWS UPDATE: We are sorry to say that we are currently not accepting sales online for the PS Jailbreak as we are currently out of stock.
We have been informed by ********** that our next shipment of PS Jailbreaks is going to arrive on Monday August 23rd 2010.

In order to get a reservation simply email us at ********

Obviously Sony won't be happy about the existence of a PS3 hack. There have been reports that the platform holder will be able to detect those using it.
So far, however, Sony has refused to comment on the matter.
