i also tried it on a 1.54, doesnt work. however i think this same thing used to happen to me when i tried to load my codebreaker disc.. it would hang the system up. i wonder if it has something to do with usb drivers..possibly the same reason why usb slots dont work sometimes when you play a p22 game on ps3
just a quick question: whats the use of such a exploit. affaik no games run on such a low fw level and does even linux work on 1.10 or 1.11 ? i guess its more a proof of concept but its not really usable at the moment, is it?
Until there is a way to inject code it isn't 'usable' so correct, but yes several games run on the lower versions (Untold Legends PS3 for example uses 1.02, for example). Also, as mentioned earlier in this thread the easiest way to find holes for later Firmware versions is to get homebrew running on the lower ones so that a lot more can be examined. Btw Linux requires 1.10 (mine is at 1.10, and I'm running FC5).
just give me homebrew!!! I don't care about iso loaders. I just want the doors opened for home devs to make inovative apps for ps3. emulators, media centers, cell based video encoders etc...wooooo! good job hacked!! once you get the door opened maybe you can start gutting the firmware and making a custom one like dark alex on the psp side.
I think ps3 sales is gonna skyrocket soon thanks to you. LOL!
