Ok so that didn’t take too long. As reported by PSX-Scene, Sony’s latest firmware 3.60 for PlayStation 3 has been jailbroken successfully.

PS3 Jailbreak

However don’t get your hopes too up for this. With Sony obtaining a restraining order against hacking master George (Geohot) Hotz, therefore just like the v3.56 jailbreak, it is unlikely that this will be released to public anytime soon.

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."

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

Shortly following, another PS3 3.60 JailBreak video was posted followed by the user removing it and reposting it with another account.

From IRC on the alleged PS3 3.60 Jailbreak video:

mastag23: just fyi:
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

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.

The video “proof” which was originally uploaded on hacker Mathieulh’s YouTube account has been made private to avoid legal issues with Sony. Others however have re-uploaded the video again using anonymous accounts.

Here it is in action:
