Geohot is an excellent hacker, sure he would hack the PS3, but after he betrayed the iPhone Dev-Team after leaking their unlock for iPhone 3Gs, it would be hard to trust him.
New Geohot post
what you reckon he is talking about iPhone or ps3
"geohot: i just realized like all cell phone basebands run microkernel OSes. i am now enjoying this project more"
maybe nothing to do with either, always good when a hacker says they are enjoying something though I think
i think he was talking about the PS3. i hope he was..
What about the keys used by the PS3 to encrypt data, like the HDD? I assume this keys must be stored somewhere inside the PS3, am I right? Isn`t it possible to retrieve them?
And the keys used by Sony to encrypt and sign their software, can`t them be retrieved from files such as a firmware update? That is, if we could read them.
Sorry if I`m being annoying with all those questions, I`m just trying to learn something about encryption/decryption.

No becouse we know that the private key is stored in the Cell.And in case to the Wii the common-key,boot0 and boot1 are also stored in the Wii's security chip = the GPU "Starlight".
So i belive that all importend keys (not only the private one) will be stored in the Cell CPU and what i know till yet no one hase managed to dump it out the Cell.
And in case of to obtain the de-/cryption keys from the FW jump back to line 1
i hope he can do something with the ps3 Hardware. Nothing is Impossible... and hey... he is a cutie, too xD
Well, looks like geohot ain't working in the ps3 anymore...
@dayloon @benzworm not ps3, and not 3.1. other stuff, i wish i had more time
I was too following his post on twitter and the impression I got is that he expected something simpler and faster to do. As no exploit was easily found and he wasn`t finding ways to get to the hypervisor, he kinda gave up for the time being. That`s only my impression though...
