219w ago - 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.

TBH you are such a liar. Since when most of releases never sees the light here? Today every new games are sold in a lot of stores, thats not an excuse. Its okay to say that games are a little overpriced tho, but if you have money to afford a ps3, you have enough money to buy at least a new game every 2 months or so. Stop the bs.

Well that doesn't meant that someone else can't include backup managers lol. He doesn't want to do it because it's crap in his eyes...

Geohot main reason for cfw was homebrew if I'm not mistake and backup managers were eventually present

two resons left, the rest is crap in my eyes o.o i respect his work, but i disrespect that he says "wah backup manager is bad".

i have around 30 games here in my room, all are original because they deserve to be bought. but i already owe my third ps3 because my bluray player got messed up...

yeah i have enough money to buy a new ps3 every second year, but there will be a point, where i only get this ugly, hardcore ugly slim ps3. and i love the fat one

vba, n64, dreamcast, psp, ps1, ps2. He doesn't have to do it and you don't have to use it lol

Learn how to make custom 4.0 yourself and not share it with anyone.

Stop being jelly. Someone else can do the piracy stuff, where are your contributions >_>

sorry but for real, tell me 5 good homebrews who are worth it to hack your console, if there is NO backup manager.

for real, only a backup manager is really interesting. if there is no one, it doesn't make sense to me to hack my console with a hen.
