April 7, 2010 // 2:13 pm - Here is a video demoing my "custom firmware". I would have added something showing off the new features of 3.21, but oh wait, there aren't any.

This can be installed without having to open up your PS3, just by restoring a custom generated PUP file.

It's possible this CFW will also work on the slim to actually *enable* OtherOS; I'll know when my infectus gets here.

No release date yet, use the proxy hack to play online with 3.15

Note to the people who removed OtherOS, you are potentially turning 100000+ legit users into "hackers."

i can't see anything coming from him anyways tbh so don't hold your breath

geohot's epeen shrank 2 months ago, and his blog is a portal for gay adult content now...

yep exactly, hes been busy with other stuff (not the whole time obviously, but most of it)

its George, he never disappoints and when he releases something it works wonders. my guess is he's doing what the iPhone Hackers are doing, waiting for the major update before releasing so that the exploit doesn't get patched. (4.0 for iphone, 3D update for PS3)

Or he is working on 3.30? As much as I hate Sony, I do not think that they are so stupid that they wouldn't know to beef up firmware security.

It's been a long time since Geohot last left an update. I hope he hasn't shelved the cfw, that would be a shame.

Yes i saw this on GeoHot's blog. I hope he releases this hack soon because i miss my Linux. I don't even know why i updated.

I can't believe that Sony have remove the other os function because that was one of the main reasons i purchased the PS3. This is only going to lead to more people using custom firmwares because i know a lot of people that liked the use of other OS.

Thanks, XuHi.

The PS3 is very close to becoming hackable. Soon who knows what the hackers would have found and what they could do.

I'm not defending them!

what they did is considered illegal in some countries, but it was a stupid move anyway because why bothering? when in reality a gameOS hack isn't really that impossible, who needs the otherOS when he already dumped the gameOS?

They could have added more HV security and checks, and patched the holes. It wasn't completely hardware based, and with a little effort from PS3 devs, it wouldn't be impossible to fix.
