This is starting to look like one of those classic cat and mouse games that passionate hackers and manufacturers often like to play: Sony keeps patching holes in its firmware that allow jailbreaking, while the jailbreaking community finds new ones to thwart Sony’s plans.
With the release of Medal of Honor, Sony made it compulsory for users to upgrade to firmware 3.50 if they want to play the game. This release patched the ability to install PS Jailbreak which hacks the PS3, making it possible to dump entire games into the internal or external hard disk.
But PS Jailbreak has announced that with their new product PS Downgrade, everyone can simply downgrade their firmware to a jailbreak-friendly version so that they can then jailbreak the PlayStation 3 with PS Jailbreak.
From the official announcement:
