August 24, 2009 // 11:01 am - Over the weekend geohot, famous for unlocking Apple's iPhone, has posted a few tweets on his Twitter account that he has began looking into hacking Sony's PS3 console.

He has also dropped by our Forums to enquire about the PS3 Hypervisor Decryption Keys, and has been in touch with CJPC via IRC as well.

To date, geohot has reported the following via tweets:

"ooo got access to a couple more pages of ram...still no hypervisor there tho. it's hiding in the top 2 MB.

anyone know if the 360 guys had a pt hypervisor to reverse?

my goal is to break out of the hypervisor... then see what my morals will allow.

gotta flip one little bit to hack the ps3. unfortunately the ps3 doesn't want me to flip it.

so, the hypervisor is in the first 0x1000 pages of RAM...think I could just pull an address line down and dump? not from kernel tho

PS3 memory map ... why did I think this would be useful again? i really want these dumps @ bootloader

it'd be nice if that worked, linux accesses sandboxed part of nand... 4mb of uselesses.

hacking the PS3, not hacked in three years how long will it take me?"

If all goes according to schedule, CJ should get the package later today (between 4-6PM EST) so sometime after that he plans to post the initial update... and of course follow-up PS3 Dev updates as their work progresses.

Just a reminder though, as he mentioned it's not a PS3 hack or anything that directly relates to retail PS3 consoles... so although it's BIG news for Devs I don't expect those who aren't tech-savvy to get too excited initially.

However, if you have been following the resident PS3 Dev Team's periodic updates over the last 600 days (all 7 pages) and like when they share things that aren't patchable by Sony then you will definitely enjoy reading what's to come.
