March 15, 2011 // 8:41 pm - Just over a week ago PlayStation 3 hacker Mathieulh confirmed finding a PS3 3.56 Exploit, and today drizzthacks tweeted part of an IRC chat log where Mathieulh stated the following regarding PS3 Firmware 3.60 running homebrew code, as follows:

"[03:15] while you are insulting me like morons, I already have code running on 3.60, and I am laughing, and guess what ? I am happy I stopped sharing, you can hate me for it, I don't care."

He followed up with the following Tweets: To those planning on building a 3.56+ pup for whatever reason, the files attributes changed, the group and user ids for the files as well. The new 3.56+ values for tarballs are the following: owner_id, “0000764″ group_id, “0000764″ owner, “tetsu” group, “tetsu” ustar, “ustar”

You can use fix_tar to use those new values. Use with caution. By comparison, those are the pre-3.56 values. owner_id, “0001752″ group_id, “0001274″ owner, “pup_tool” group, “psnes” ustar, “ustar”

3.60 isn’t “hardcore security” anyway, it’s just Sony thinking they are safe hiding everything inside lv0. You can’t decrypt lv0 without the bootloader keys. Your best bet is to look at 3.56, decrypt loaders, look for exploits, profit. You need to either decrypt or dump lv0, then you can get the encrypted loaders and decrypt them with the metldr key. Good luck.

On IRC, Mathieulh also posted a video of his own but then privatized it currently rendering it unavailable:

Mathieulh: actually you want video proof, let's share one for the lol

Shortly following, another PS3 3.60 JailBreak video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZfES89eZwM) was posted followed by the user removing it and reposting it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qohuq0Vvm6M) with another account.

From IRC on the alleged PS3 3.60 JailBreak video:

mastag23: just fyi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZfES89eZwM&feature=player_embedded
mastag23: that is fake
mastag23: it would look legit if he hadn't of ran the debugging station launcher
mastag23: You fail "Connected from 192.168.0.2 on port 1000" (port might be wrong pretty blurry.
mastag23: This is a debug unit. That can't be done on a retail unit. Run the Debugging Station Launcher on a retail and the debug tools won't connect to it, yours obviously does
mastag23: debugging station launcher cant be connected to on retail
mastag23: if he hadnt of posted debugging station launcher
mastag23: he would be believable

KaKaRoTo: Fandangos, worked on ps3mfw for 5 weeks before i got busy with other stuff
KaKaRoTo: and now i'm working on something new and revolutionizing that will also take some months of work
KaKaRoTo: (hopefully )
KaKaRoTo: anyways, the theory says that it will jailbreak all future versions, but it needs probably 2 or more months of work to get it to actually be tested..
KaKaRoTo: then need to test and see if it works
KaKaRoTo: first, like I said thousnads of times, there will be no more cfw above 3.55
KaKaRoTo: secondly, math didn't find any exploit, someone else did, math just tweeted it
KaKaRoTo: and no, my hack isn't based on that, there's no fun in using someone else's work
Mathieulh: KaKaRoTo actually it was me and rms, I found one fixed in 1.10 a few instructions below
Mathieulh: told rms to look for the exploit
Mathieulh: and he found the other instead xD
Mathieulh: which I had missed
KaKaRoTo: Mathieulh, ah ok, that's not what i was told, cause you kept referring to it as "the rms exploit" in the private chan
Mathieulh: yah xD
KaKaRoTo: and didn't know rms wanted his name to be known










The video shows a package installing and the new online save function, which was added in PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60.

Time will tell, but my feeling from the videos and the tweeting... this may be the real deal.

Brazil isn't a third world country, it's actually far from being a third world country, lol. I don't see why he should be stuck playing PS2 games just because PS3 games are overpriced in Brazil.

Before you start being too harsh on HackSoul, you may want to remember that SanctumSlayer, that is living in Brazil still have to endure a market with very high gaming prices...

That's no excuse HackSoul! If money's so tight, a PS2 is what you should be in the market for. Wait til the PS4 comes so your 3rd world country will be able to afford PS3s. Heck I'm surprised you're even on the Internet!

Sorry guys. I overreacted... Sorry KaKaroto! You're one of best on the Scene!

Where I live there's no way to afford proper copies of games and also there's no work for anyone... So buying a game is just possible every 8-10 months with the money I get from one-day jobs.

I always thought that math whatever the hell his name is was arrogant. he talked down at people and in a roundabout way called them stupid when they didn't understand his "work" and never really contributed much. On the other hand kakaroto team has always shown proof, explained and elaborated all their work, and didn't tell a bundle of lies. job well done sirs! I look forward to your future exploits!

The main point i was trying to expose is that there are plenty of games here and everyone who owns a ps3 can buy some. The choice of buy or not is of each one and that i will never argue against...

This is not true. I have a 3.55 CFW in place solely for emulators. It's really what I've wanted for years; one simple box to plug into my TV with ten years of gaming history on it. I am happy.

I have a second PS3 kept up to date to play PS3 games. Actually I haven't turned this one on in months. I've pretty much had it with the console world. I've gone back to PC gaming. Skyrim mostly
