    PS JailBreak Successfully Cloned by Mathieulh's PS3 Hacker Team

    Over the weekend the PS3 modchip known as PS JailBreak was examined, and today Mathieulh has made several Tweets (linked above) confirming that his PS3 hacker team have successfully cloned the PS JailBreak USB device.

    Essentially this means the PS3 hack used to run PlayStation 3 game backups on a retail PS3 console was itself hacked, and according to Mathieulh details on the exploit used will be publically documented and available as soon as next week.

    Those interested in acquiring the necessary hardware, specifically a Teensy ++ board or an AT90USBKEY, may want to check HERE for some handy links.

    Below are some quotes from his recent Tweets, as follows:

    "Someone from our group just successfully cloned the psjailbreak dongle. Going to improve the shell code soon.

    We are not releasing anything, we didn't just rip things off, we know how it works, the clone is just a POC, we plan on documenting.

    The exploit will be documented on the ps3wiki as soon as possible (we need to write up the whole article, will take a bit)

    Buy an AT90USBKEY or Teensy board now and we'll have good news soon.

    Right now as far as I know the (original clone) code has been ported to the Teensy ++ There is no ETA as to any other devices so far."

    Teensy Key Features:

    • USB can be any type of device
    • AVR processor, 16 MHz
    • Single pushbutton programming
    • Easy to use Teensy Loader application
    • Free software development tools
    • Works with Mac OS X, Linux & Windows
    • Tiny size, perfect for many projects
    • Available with pins for solderless breadboard
    • Very low cost & low cost shipping options

    Hackers hacking hacks

    It's cool that they'll share the documentation with the scene. Why the change of mind, all of a sudden?

    Lets see if they share or just be as selfish as with geohots exploit! Even if they don't share it will happen anyways but hopefully they will so it can be sooner for everyone so we can get to fully unlocking the ps3's full potential for the gaming and hacking community!

    WOOT! Effing A! Now this is just the sort of news I wanna hear. Congrats to Math's team, I knew they (or Team Hades) could do it, if anyone could.

    well... how can this be done as an open source softmod version? - doubt its possible somehow atm.

    also i'm wondering if there will be some file/dir explorer, so we can copy retail pkg's onto the ps3 hdd (ofc with proper dir structure etc.), then restart with the normal retail flag set and then install the pkg

    I imagine now that the info will be freely available, it wouldn't take much to make a breadboard with the needed components and anyone would be able to create their own, if they have the required electronics skills that is.

    They will probably release a software permanent solution in the near future, but this is not it. And yes, since it's only information, it's free.

    if they have clones it that means an exact copy, so the hardware might still have to be paid for , on the other hand if they have reconstucted the jailbreak via mobile devices and or laptops plugged into the ps3... great stuff!

    So this seems like the free scene-solution where we are waiting for?
