More than a year has passed since PlayStation 3 was released. The whole time hackers have been busy trying to break into the system and run Homebrew, without any luck -- until now. First homebrew software was run on a Firmware 2.20 PS3 yesterday. A simple "Hello World"-program was created by a known PSP hacker Dragula96 and run through a vulnerability in the system architecture.
Dragula96 claims that this is no April Fools joke and that it works on both 40GB and 60GB models with firmware 2.20. There has been no details yet on how he managed to do the trick. For the next step Dragula96 will try to run a pong game successfully on a PS3.
