Yeah, in service mode, you can do so much, you can ID swap motherboard and BD-drive and much more. but then again it's a locked mode and you need to be connected a to a server. It's more limited also than it looks so what people are using is not even close to a copy of a JIG.
looks like it also allows for recovery of flash and HDD contents.
Well this exploit wouldn't have been possible without the jig method by Sony, which leads to bad news for the future Sony console. They will no doubt either discontinue this method of servicing the PS4 (most likely) or will figure out how to prevent this from happening again with more security (less likely).
psjailbreak and psgroove are not exploit based? are "sony backdoor" based? it's better read more about working method (usb hub, multi devices, connect/disconnect order, device ids, payloads, etc).
it's not so easy to clone an original sony jig adapter.
Nice indeed, this means the exploit of Egohot is only a copy of the jig we are use now. The only diffrerence is we must not open the console any more, and use the old copy to make diffrent apps.
When you see back, the old exploit(copy) we use a trigger on the board, now we use the eject boutton .This means without the SCE Server, can the ps3 not 100% unlockabele because the mastercode ?
The ps3 is than 50% unlockabele, with differnt apps. The ps3 is than now not 100% hacked, right ?
Hopefully more new things can from this.
Did anyone notice on the diagrams in the PDF, they always connect the jig device into the 4th port instead of the 1st one?
PDF = very interesting reading, appears to show the flow sony service centers take.
Indicates that when you send in a failing/dead PS3 they have the ability to provide a clone of your original PS3 by ID Swapping with a referbished unit.
This is all kinda expected - the interesting thing is that they seem to log specific information about every PS3 on their servers (not really that unexpected) - but this PDF gives some indication as to what they actually log.
Not sure what exactly this brings to the table, but it clearly indicates a comms channel via the ethernet port as well as via USB.
Of course this could all be fake info - The PDF isn't anything special in the eye candy stakes - but the why would it be! If it's for internal use only (hehe) there isn't any need to produce a nice glossy manual is there!
Interesting reading anyway!
I wouldn't say 100%. Find something that Sony can't block and it's 100%.
But this hole opened the PS3 to start really spilling it's 'gut's' so to say.
sounds really cool, looking at it now..
