That article is about various devs releasing/waiting for the right time to release iPhone jailbreak hacks.
It is NOT a pissant little "developer" coming out and completely pointlessly saying "I hacked this, but I'm not going to detail it, give any hints, encourage anyone, ever release it, or do anything useful or helpful to the community with it."
Now I'm not saying he has to do everything for the good of the hombrew community, but hell, he didn't even say "I'm going to keep this for myself, release a device, and profit off it."
What is the point of this? Just so that when someone does hack it and release it he can claim to have been so smart that he came up with it ages ago? So that a bunch of people you claim not to care about or respect will hold you in some esteem?
I've followed the PSP/PS3 hacking scene to various degrees ever since I bought my launch unit PS3 and I seem to remember this guy being a recurring pain in the rear.
No one cares about you and your phantom hacks, Mathielublah-whatever. Go die in a hole somewhere.
Just over a week ago PlayStation 3 hacker Mathieulh confirmed finding a PS3 3.56 Exploit, and today [Register or Login to view links] tweeted part of an IRC chat log where Mathieulh stated the following regarding PS3 Firmware 3.60 running homebrew code, as follows:
"[03:15] while you are insulting me like morons, I already have code running on 3.60, and I am laughing, and guess what ? I am happy I stopped sharing, you can hate me for it, I don't care."
He followed up with the following Tweets: To those planning on building a 3.56+ pup for whatever reason, the files attributes changed, the group and user ids for the files as well. The new 3.56+ values for tarballs are the following: owner_id, “0000764″ group_id, “0000764″ owner, “tetsu” group, “tetsu” ustar, “ustar”
You can use fix_tar to use those new values. Use with caution. By comparison, those are the pre-3.56 values. owner_id, “0001752″ group_id, “0001274″ owner, “pup_tool” group, “psnes” ustar, “ustar”
3.60 isn’t “hardcore security” anyway, it’s just Sony thinking they are safe hiding everything inside lv0. You can’t decrypt lv0 without the bootloader keys. Your best bet is to look at 3.56, decrypt loaders, look for exploits, profit. You need to either decrypt or dump lv0, then you can get the encrypted loaders and decrypt them with the metldr key. Good luck.
On IRC, Mathieulh also posted a video of his own but then privatized it currently rendering it unavailable:
Mathieulh: actually you want video proof, let's share one for the lol Mathieulh:[Register or Login to view links]
Shortly following, another PS3 3.60 JailBreak video ([Register or Login to view links]) was posted followed by the user removing it and reposting it ([Register or Login to view links]) with another account.
From IRC on the alleged PS3 3.60 JailBreak video:
mastag23: just fyi: [Register or Login to view links] mastag23: that is fake mastag23: it would look legit if he hadn't of ran the debugging station launcher mastag23: You fail "Connected from 192.168.0.2 on port 1000" (port might be wrong pretty blurry. mastag23: 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 mastag23: debugging station launcher cant be connected to on retail mastag23: if he hadnt of posted debugging station launcher mastag23: he would be believable
KaKaRoTo: Fandangos, worked on ps3mfw for 5 weeks before i got busy with other stuff KaKaRoTo: and now i'm working on something new and revolutionizing that will also take some months of work KaKaRoTo: (hopefully ) KaKaRoTo: anyways, the theory says that it will jailbreak all future versions, but it needs probably 2 or more months of work to get it to actually be tested.. KaKaRoTo: then need to test and see if it works KaKaRoTo: first, like I said thousnads of times, there will be no more cfw above 3.55 KaKaRoTo: secondly, math didn't find any exploit, someone else did, math just tweeted it KaKaRoTo: and no, my hack isn't based on that, there's no fun in using someone else's work Mathieulh: KaKaRoTo actually it was me and rms, I found one fixed in 1.10 a few instructions below Mathieulh: told rms to look for the exploit Mathieulh: and he found the other instead xD Mathieulh: which I had missed KaKaRoTo: Mathieulh, ah ok, that's not what i was told, cause you kept referring to it as "the rms exploit" in the private chan Mathieulh: yah xD KaKaRoTo: and didn't know rms wanted his name to be known
The video shows a package installing and the new online save function, which was added in PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60.
Time will tell, but my feeling from the videos and the tweeting... this may be the real deal.
