PlayStation 3 firmware 3.60 jailbroken

PlayStation 3 firmware 3.60 jailbroken Last week, Sony introduced PlayStation 3 firmware 3.60, which added cloud saving for PlayStation Plus members.
This week, a hacker uploaded a video alleging that he had jailbroken the firmware, showing off a retail console with 3.60 with homebrew.

You can read an interview with the hacker here: MyCE.

In separate news, PSX Scene has said that Sony has enabled 3.60 authentication, thus kicking all custom firmware users off of PSN.

It is unclear whether the last move will lead to bans.

Does that mean that Sony will be knocking down my door to screw my a$$.

Don't bother - i don't have a PS3 - nor ever likely to !

They'll only show up at your door if you watch the video.

Hackers claiming to have done it on their own w/o anyone else to verify the claim is quite suspicious.

Agree xnonsuchx. I can't say if it's real or not, but I came across this info that disputes the validity of this 3.60 JBW ~

it would look legit if he hadn't of ran the debugging station launcher

You fail "Connected from 192.168.0.2 on port 1000" (port might be wrong pretty blurry.

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

debugging station launcher cant be connected to on retail

if he hadnt of posted debugging station launcher he would be believable
And now with the rumored 3.60 FW kicking off all CFW users as posted here ~

“We are expecting sporadic PSN maintenance from approx 9am-3pm PST Thursday 03/17/2011. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

That message was the last thing that CFW users got to see today, later after the network was back up all found they been kicked off their PSN!

Sony has finally enabled the new v3.60 auth system which was found beating in the new firmware they had released last week!

it sure seems that KakARoToKS had it right when he said ~

Quote:
Sony is implementing a fool-proof three-step solution which should completely fix the exploit discovered by the hackers. He writes:

"Sony’s 3 step solution: 1 – secure firmware update (3.56), 2 – secure firmware decryption (3.60), 3 – secure psn: change psn protocol (3.6x)"

But we shall see the cat & mouse game continue as usual...

If no code is released and no PUP is released then I have trouble believing it...and even if it does work, I really don't care if the code is not available to me.

Wow seems to be a few videos out there. Any of them legit? My PS3 is nicely running a 3.55 custom firmware. I couldn't give a toss about PSN so just curious if it is out yet and if it is stable. It may be a no to both right now but it is only a matter of time in my opinion.


Just my $0.02,
