Granted geohot did find another module on the iPhone that could be exploited but he did require other people's work to initially get him into the iPhone to create purplesn0w. His method on the iPhone did work but it was too big and used up too much memory and was quite buggy. With that said, I do hope that he can get something going on with the PS3. I'm just not going to hold my breath on this one.
I have great faith that somehow by some one/group it will be done very soon, probably not this year though...
Surely though if geohot and/or the devs actually do find a mad exploit or hack will we really find out through these pages and geohots twitter account. I doubt it, I think we won't know how successful anyone is until the hack actually gets released. Why announce you've done it before you can apply it to anyone's machine and then Sony fix in an update or something anyway.
Oh well its fun going between here and there everyday expecting the good news to suddenly be released, knowing deep down you'll be doing this a lot before that day arrives.
Hackers/devs whoever is doing something, keep going, your great, only wish there was somehow a newbie could help also
Everyone should also keep in mind that the ps2 also had a very rough road in its quest to be hacked. ESR is still not in a final state and we've had a decade to explore the ps2. lets not put to much pressure on the talented Devs out there working for free, every chance they get.
These guys should be commended for their work and dedication, some even going as far as to put the scene before their everyday lives. also keep in mind companies have million dollar budgets & teams to engineer consoles, while the average joe has a $19.95 budget and the weight of the world on his back.
So to the average Joe Dev... Thank You, keep up the good work!
lol. Actually I think they do it whether we cared or not. They arent necessarily trying to hack it because we are asking them to and I am not sure many of them care if ppl complain or have doubts. Always thought that the scene was like that, doing it for the love of it and not because some noob wants it done. Hacking the ps3 would be the ultimate bragging right probably for a decade to come.
Geohot is still plugging away adding to the PS3 Hypervisor Function List. Sadly though, with the exception of lv1_map_device_dma_region none of them are much use... and even with that function you can't DMA to the HV Memory and the only other Memory is Linux so basically useless.
