Well it looks like folks at PSX-Scene have managed to find a way to get jailbroken PlayStation 3’s back online on PSN after Sony recently blocked the DNS method for consoles running custom firmware 3.55.
This has to be one of the funniest trolling done by anyone from the jailbreaking community ever. I always thought Geohot is cool, but with this, he just gets better. Unless you have been living under the rock, you must have heard of the lawsuit that sony has filled against Geohot for making PlayStation 3 exploits and jailbreak tools public. No matter what, there's something that Sony always gets back from Geohot, pwnage for life. In a latest effort to publicly pwn Sony, Geohot gives you "The Light It Up Contest".
Things are really starting to hot up in the Sony vs Geohot court case over the hacker's PS3 hacking exploits. Now the Japanese behemoth is requesting that a federal judge orders Google to hand over personal information such as IP address of anyone commenting on a private page on social video site YouTube.
Well that didn't take long! As Engadget reports, Sony's latest PS3 firmware v3.56 has been hacked in just 24 hours after its release.
Geohot appeared live on AOTS (Attack of the Show) today where he talked about the lawsuit which Sony recently filed against him for jailbreaking the PS3.
After releasing PS3 root keys publicly this week, the famous iPhone hacker George Hotz (aka Geohot) is back today with an update on his site, that reads “I made a video”. The video shows a jailbroken PlayStation 3 on the latest 3.55 firmware, running homebrew.
It was only a few days ago when we posted about how the PS3 was pwned for life. And now, KaKaRoTo has released some tools that will allow you to install your very own custom firmware on the PlayStation 3.
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.
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 jailbroken iPhones 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.
