Update #2: GeoHot has updated his site again with PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools (PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools with DLL Files or PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools OSX) and Source Code (Windows users will also need libeay32.zip or grab the PS3 PKG Signer Windows GUI by FamousMassacre) with a brief guide HERE alongside How to JailBreak a PlayStation 3 on 3.55 Firmware.
Also, PS3 Tools (Compiled) and PS3 Tools Updates (Compiled) are now available for Win32 users as well.
To quote: "homebrew signing source make_self_npdrm makes valid NPDRM selfs from elfs it does not contain any info on decrypting or removing NPDRM NPDRM is required for interoperability of our homebrew applications package_finalize turns your debug packages into psuedoretail packages, psuedoretail packages install on a geohot jailbroken PS3.
i'm excited to see what you will create open source SDK @ PSL1GHT"
These PS3 tools can now be used to convert ELF files into valid NPDRM SELF files, and a PSL1ght PS3 PKG Python Script is also available, example usage:
pkg.py --contentid UP0001-TEST00003_00-0000000000000000 build/pkg/ PS3Tetris.pkg
Update: GeoHot has now released a PS3 3.55 JailBreak Custom Firmware PUP followed shortly by PS3 3.55 JailBreak r1 which fixes the 8002FB27 error and also shared the Test.PKG File from the video.
To quote from his site: "it's jailbreak time open the zip, you know how to install 3.55 only would be pirates, don't waste your time do not mirror file, link to geohot.com here is the package from the video no donations accepted right now, don't get scammed
old homebrew will not work new homebrew signing tools coming soon..."
Today GeoHot has posted a YouTube video on his site showing a JailBroken PS3 3.55 Firmware console running PlayStation 3 Homebrew.
This news comes just days after his previous dePKG PS3 Firmware Package Decrypter and PS3 Keys news alongside the first signed PS3 homebrew on version 3.55 Firmware.
To quote from the video's caption, which simply states: "It's 5AM, this is homebrew. No release dates as usual.
3.55 firmware omg omg omg omg no patching lv2
shouts to fail0verflow and psl1ght"
I personally think not having proper access to the kernel and such is a complete waste of time - what homebrew does he assume we will use?
