178w ago - Following up on the previous article and update for the 3.73 JailBreak, today Sony PlayStation 3 Hacker KaKaRoToKS has confirmed it is safe to update to PS3 Firmware 4.00 for those planning to use the exploit when it is released.

Below are some recent Tweets from him, as follows:

FYI, tested yesterday and the jailbreak still works on 4.0 so it's safe to upgrade (for those on 3.73)

Just got my progskeet today. Thanks uf6667 for sending it! It's so small!

Not much new to go on at the moment, but keep in mind the upcoming PlayStation 3 exploit will not enable PS3 backup managers such as multiMAN or Rogero as it does not include support for modifying Peek and Poke for lv1 and lv2 as outlined in the FAQ that was previously posted.

Hopefully this discredits Methloser once and for all.

& KaKaRoTo, if you're reading this, well done. Thanks for your efforts. Don't give up - anything is possible.

Cliffnotes (summary in shorter words).

I went through and read it: Mathieulh is a lying drama queen who is dumber than a box of rocks and trying to derail actual progress.

the number needed to generate the signature to sign packages in 4.00 HEN is near impossible to figure out. Nothing is 100% impossible, but without massive computing power (think enigma) it would take a very very long time to decrypt.

That's pretty much what I got from this.

If they can figure out how to get peek and poke working... goodluck

At the end of the day, you gotta give it up to $ony for holding it down as long as they have. I love my ps3 way more but i love the xbox scene way more too.

is it because the xbox scene have better devs that work better together or is it because the xbox was easier to hack or both?

But full compatibility with roms for DC and N64 emulators are very much something that I look forward too if it becomes possible along with custom button mapping of course although I wouldn't mind having the best of both worlds >_>

Really looking forward to playing new games

I agree with you, never said i was not interested in run backups and i also think the same as you. Everyone who wants a CFW to rub their SNES emulator is nothing more than an liar.

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...

There is a misunderstanding here. We'll able to run applications means we can run backup managers but backup managers won't be able to run backups unless there's a payload/peek&poak solution.

And no you can't make eboots for 3.41 that's a different thing.

If Kakarato really has a way of installing custom PKGs, backups are possible. You just make PKGs off retail games, which is already possible. All these new games will work since the HEN is for 4.00!

I think everyone needs to stop the bs. The ONLY reason anyone wants any of their game consoles or handhelds hacked IS for the ability to play back ups. I do not care if anyone wants to be 'PC", politically correct, in forums and say they do not use back up managers for anything but their legally owned games. They are liars and hypocrites.

I am sure even kakaroto uses back ups but yet wants to be against them. Just silly. He even talks about cracking the securities in games in his whole rant but then at the end says that he will not enable piracy on his release. Bet the one he keeps for himself allows piracy. Just hate hypocrites. Rant over, back on topic.

This does not prove Math wrong, not that I like the guy or am sticking up for him. Just a bunch of words writing on a forum page. Until there is tangible evidence for all to see then I believe none of these devs. Just wait and watch. But I believe that the ps3 scene is dead and we got all we could out of it.
