BREAKING: PlayStation 3 has been Jailbroken Using Apple iPhone and iPod touch [Video]
We previously posted an entire guide on how to Jailbreak the PlayStation 3 with an Android Phone and also that iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd confirmed that the hack would soon be coming to iPhones. Well guess what, it’s here folks! The PSGroove / PSFreedom has been ported over to jailbrokeniPhones but the interesting thing is that it is not by the same team which MuscleNerd talked about. It’s actually by a hacker who goes by the name of NTAuthority! and he has used OpeniBoot method which was previously used to port Android on iPhone 2G, 3G and iPod touch.
From what we’ve confirmed, the hack works on three iOS devices only for now, namely: iPod touch 1G, iPhone EDGE (the first iPhone) and the recently-outdated iPhone 3G. The device must, of course, be jailbroken.
Prerequisites for the hack includes: VMware Player, Ubuntu 10.04, OpeniBoot, WinSCP and OpenSSH. You can catch the guide posted here at PS3Mod. The mod can be seen in action in the videos embedded below:
Oh and all the standard warnings still apply. Hacking or modding your PlayStation 3 (PS3) might result in Sony banning your console from PSN (PlayStation Network). Use it only at your own risk.
[Props to Andrew for the hat tip!]
UPDATE 1: Thanks to microsnakey for posting English version of the guide here.
