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 think that's unsupported syscall in PKG... Just a guess.

Anyone happen to know what error 80029517 stands for? Was toying with a package but get that error when trying to launch.

We just need some syscall support, lol. What Sony is going to do?

A little tutorial from Toshi:

"Download tools from geohot

1) First of all we compile any example from pslight(make), and we'll get an .elf (any valid .elf works). We then use the following command:

./make_self_npdrm nombre.elf nombre.self IP9100-BULL11112_00-0000111122223333

2) We will get a signed .elf. We go to a psl1ght makefile and change: titleid := IP9100-BULL11112_00-0000111122223333

we also change: APPID :=BULL11112

3) We put the self in that folder and we make

make pkg

4) Then on top of the pkg:

./package_finalize name.pkg

And it's done to boot in geohot's CFW3.55"

i installed it like an hour ago... it was an attachment somewhere in this thread i think. don't expect it to do anything though except load and show any games you may have on your drive.

some have said maybe a direct boot game would work but i have no idea.
