January 7, 2011 // 3:44 am - 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 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: --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 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?

I'm not concerned. Sony isn't like Microsoft. Hackers have won the battle. It's over.

Anyone clue me in on how your getting geohot tools to work? No matter what I do I get segmentation fault. Tried WinXP/Win7/Ubuntu...

FMAranda, you are correct about the peek/poke is need for writing to dev_flash. But as i said in the post, no guarantee it will work.

this would be very easy with geohots tools and FORCE_PACKAGE_NPDRM.

But, to write on dev_flash you need peek and poke, i'm not sure if it will work. I have only one PS3 3.41, do you think that is better if i update it to 3.55 or stay as it is now?

Yes, since the backup works on 3.55 CFW i see no problems.

I didnt think that the PS3 sent logs. I havent seen anyone that has been banned for using the backup manager or any homebrew in the past so i think atm it is relatively safe. Last question, when a working backup manager is released for the CFW, i'll be able to play the backups online correct?

Here is FreeFlash compiled to work with 3.55. Enjoy write access to dev_flash on FW 3.55! No guarantee it will work, need a few people to test this. Make sure to check that you actually can write to "dev_fflash". Also "dev_fflash" will not show up if your using blackb0x ftp, so i have signed CJPC's ftp application to run on 3.55.

Or you can use Comgenies Awesome File Manager to be able to see the "dev_fflash" directory. All these apps are signed & finalized with geo's signing/finalize tools for use with his recently released CFW (should work with other firmwares without JB device). Please reply in thread to confirm them working. Thanks & Enjoy!

Note: Please include your firmware version when confirming these apps.

I don't know, but there is a push list which contains all the games that we play, and i think that it sends to You-Know-Who. Correct me if i'm wrong.

I wouldent really worry about being banned, people didnt get banned when the PSN Payload came out. and just look at the PSP, it works on PSN even with Custom Firmware. but only time will tell if you can get banned or not.

I don't think so because i was toying with a normal game package.
