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
Mathieulh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nknwBz-2v8c

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.

He didn't. He just wants attention. He's lied many times before, please don't believe what he says.

Even if there were a new 3.56 exploit, it'd be completely useless. (Though progress is always nice)

1) he never release anything he finds.
2) he was asked by KaKaRoToKS to help him with the 4.00+ jb and he purposely pointed him and his team in the wrong direction and made them study something useless for months and months and then he made KaKaRoToKS jb process really slow and he knew he was doing it on purpose also wen he spoke about it to KaKaRoToKS he then emailed sony and told them what to fix

You know I believe that when we buy a system, it's ours to do what we want to do with it and as long as we don't use any part of it or it's software to make money for ourselves, then I don't see any reason for a company to sue us for doing something with it.

I am talking about the PS3 for 1. We buy the system and we use it until it seems lame and boring to us and we want to mod it or it's software to add something we like like Hombrew or such and yet we seem to get in trouble because the company feels we messed with something that wasn't supposed to be touch but yet I feel that we bought the machine and technically we should have our way with it as long as we are not selling any part of it that we modded ourselves or anyone modded for a profit for ourselves.

I think if we want to mod the PS3 to use other stuff we made or someone else made then I think we should be able to as long as we don't make money from it and it doesn't allow any piracy to be done.

Sony shouldn't be after us for this and they should be after the ones that are stealing they're firmware and selling them modded.

Don't everyone agree to this. I do.

Nah, Gehot proved that he was reliable in the Apple scene, can't doubt about that. The kid has talent, but he has a huge ego too (who wouldn't ? you're an hypocrite if you say you wouldn't do the same with his talent).

The lamers of this scene are mathieulh and his little friends. He keeps stealing work from others and pretending he did it (we never saw him release something once, never, just pretend it's his work when something got leaked).

Stabbing Geohot in the back after everything he brought to the scene, i find it pretty pathetic. At least he brought results and wasn't playing drama "i will release ... i won't release... oh i may release ... finally i wont, LOL"

This kid also had balls to go in court with Sony, say anything you want but i doubt you have even half of his courage and couldn't do the same (i dare you to say the contrary).

He fought for the scene against a huge company that could have whipped him with a finger. 90% of peoples blame him, but in his situation they would run under their mom's skirt like cowards.

At least he released something, half of devs in this scene are either drama queens with small tool or big mouthed kids who think computer engineering can be mastered for breakfast.

Actually is not to skip, it's to get

I'm gonna say a bad example

A key = Key -> the PS3 is a door -> you, you are the transport, the person who gonna put the key into your door.

If somebody come behind you, he can take your key and run away, back later to open your door.

I know it's a bad example sorry for that but it's to represent that simply

Didn't you say that we can skip the ECDSA entirely ?
