    Arrow Apple iPhone Unlocker GeoHot Begins Hacking Sony's PS3

    Sponsored Links
    Over the weekend [Register or Login to view links], famous for unlocking Apple's iPhone, has posted a few tweets on his [Register or Login to view links] account that he has began looking into hacking Sony's PS3 console.

    He has also dropped by our Forums to enquire about the PS3 Hypervisor Decryption Keys, and has been in touch with CJPC via IRC as well.

    To date, geohot has reported the following via tweets:

    "ooo got access to a couple more pages of ram...still no hypervisor there tho. it's hiding in the top 2 MB.

    anyone know if the 360 guys had a pt hypervisor to reverse?

    my goal is to break out of the hypervisor... then see what my morals will allow.

    gotta flip one little bit to hack the ps3. unfortunately the ps3 doesn't want me to flip it.

    so, the hypervisor is in the first 0x1000 pages of RAM...think I could just pull an address line down and dump? not from kernel tho

    PS3 memory map [Register or Login to view links] ... why did I think this would be useful again? i really want these dumps @ bootloader

    Code:
    PS3 memory as seen from kernel space
    
    the kernel:
    c00000000xxxxxxx -> 0000408f92c94xxxxxxx
      c: 0  l: 1  n: 0  kp: 1  ks: 0

    But how likely is this guy to matter and is the info in his tweets important in the opinion of the devs?

    I really hope he can do it, because the ps3 is a console with so much potential just imagine the things that could be done with a hello world!!

    I will have CJPC reply on that later today, but from what I recall when I asked him the "PS3 memory map" is just old/known linux stuff.

    However, keep in mind that geohot had to start somewhere... so he could get up to speed quickly depending on how much time he has to invest.

    Excluding the fakes (people who modded SAK, etc), there has never been a way to run unsigned code on retail PS3 consoles made public.

    Looks like he needs a girlfriend hehehe, just kidding (again )

    I just hope this guy be able to hack the PS3 or, at least, give a good advance in the matter. I'm not sure if it's possible to do such a thing because, as he says, it's been three years since the PS3 release and a lot of people are being in the same thing since then.

    We all know that it ain't easy to hack an Iphone (which is "bad" from its very design) but it's even harder to hack a PS3, which I think was designed to avoid that possibility.

    Anyway, the best of luck for this guy with his "tremendous" goal

    Yeah,

    I knew that posting that comment was a bad idea, but I didn't say that because of his geekness, but because the way he looks in that picture. Don't get me wrong, I respect guys like him who does a lot things that I can't even imagine, but (being honest) a good haircut would be nice .

    I'm not exactly a geek, but I consider myself "smart enough", I'm more into the business management than the development department. I guess that, in the end of the day, everybody does whatever they wanna do with their time.

    P.D. I love my girlfriend too
