PSFreedom Ported to HTC Evo, Hero & Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

Sponsored Links
233w ago - The day just wouldn't be complete without some more PSFreedom ports, which now support the HTC Evo, Hero and Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 devices.

Downloads: PSFreedom HTC Evo / PSFreedom Hero (CDMA) / PSFreedom Hero (GSM) / PSFreedom Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

To quote from PSGroove: The HTC Hero now is able to perform the jailbreak on all PS3 models.

With great thanks to alephzain the hero now works. Below is the update.zip for gsm Hero with psfreedom, best way for now is nandroid backup, flash the update, apply hack on PS3 and nandroid restore to return to existing rom.

1. Copy .zip onto sdcard
2. Reboot phone into recovery (I use Clockwork but Amon-Ra is just as good, and may endup better ;p)
3. Perform a nandroid backup
4. Install zip from sdcard and select zip downloaded from above.
5. Perform hack on PS3
6. Reboot to recovery and restore nandroid backup
7. Goto 1 each time you switch on PS3 until a better method is developed

Below are links to zImage as psfreedom.ko (patched for bdvd).

CDMA - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LR19E62T
GSM - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A3IWL856

1. Copy psfreedom.ko to your sdcard
2. Install a terminal emulator from the market
3. Fastboot the zImage
4. Once it has booted open the terminal emulator
5. type su
6. type cd /sdcard
7. type insmod psfreedom.ko
8. plug in to PS3 and enjoy

The HTC Evo has been utilized to perform the PS3 Jailbreak exploit.

A set of instructions by iitreatedii states the following:

Step 1. Connect your phone via usb and turn on disk storage.
Step 2. Drag the downloaded file to the root of your SD card.
Step 3. Do a nandroid backup of your phone.
Step 4. Flash the file you downloaded from here via Amon Recovery (I could care less about clockwork :/)
Step 5. Plug your Evo into your ps3 with the power button off for fat consoles and for slim consoles unplug your power cable.
Step 6. Turn on your system with the power button and quickly press eject. If done correctly, ps3 should take a little bit longer to boot up and console should show underneath games, install .pkg files. This is where you can install things such as backup manager.
Step 7. Unplug your phone after successfully booting the ps3 into "dev" mode.
Step 8. You can now restore the nandroid you were previously on and call it a session. Redo the process whenever you turn on the ps3.

The HTC Evo package is signed - just copy it to your SD card, boot to recovery mode, flash the zip, and boot back so your phone is operational.

You know the rest: disconnect the main PS3 power, connect the phone to the PS3, reconnect main power, press power button immediately followed by eject.

You should probably do a Nandroid backup prior to flashing. Thank DrMon and H1Vltg3 for this.

Finally, PSFreedom for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1.


1. Run Xandroid 2.2
2. Extract archive and copy files to your SD Card (zImage/modules)
3. Run Haret with USB connection to your PC
4. Disconnect USB from your PC
5. Run Terminal Emulator from DevTools on Android
6. Type the following commands:

• command #1 : su
• command #2 : cd sdcard
• command #3 : insmod psfreedom.ko

7. Start up PS3/perform exploit as normal

For everybody that's done with typing try this:

To Automate the writing process.

Create a directory called "conf" in your android folder. (ex: andboot/conf)

Open Notepad, Paste the stuff below

[Register or Login to view code]

Save it as froyo.user.conf in the folder you created before. (andboot/conf)

Note: payload.bin is the Hermes payloads you download from the other posts. Rename it to payload.bin or rename the codes. Anyway, I think you got it.

All credits go out to the wonderful people of XDA dev's.

It depends on what you need to do. You can simply change Internet settings to Manual and modify the IP of the Internet gateway. If you put a bad IP address as gateway (for example, if the default gateway is, you can modify it to you can still access the PS3 inside the lan, but the console doesn't have access to Internet.

Bottom line - if you want to be on the safe side simply DON'T go online with JB PS3 anymore - simple as that. This includes going online even when not in JB mode anymore.

Hi all.

I installed the first RA image recovery modified for PSfreedom via adb shell method explained on xda forum. Yesterday i noticed that there is a new recovery image with peek/poke support and today i tried to install it... however, i can't get adb running...

I tried the two methods described here: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=561124 but everytime i start the adb server on my Debian machine i get this error:

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
error: device not found

Do you noticed the same problem?
