Video: PS3 3.60 JailBreak Rumor, Mathieulh Claims Running Code


Sponsored Links
188w ago - 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

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.

That's not entirely true, I'm following your posts and it is very interesting, still KaKaRoToKS did a great Job explaining ECDSA which was interesting.

Considering your statements you won't have to get any keys and thus it's still possible to run homebrew/backups on PS3 FW >3.55 by bypassing any key requirements with "devtools".

Actually the PS3 Scene are too concentrate to the Keys and too blind to see what is the best way about all that, we don't need any Keys, we have enough stuff and tool for that.

Look like that nobody read the my post about a possible 4.0 alternative... also this is more a leave the scene and check somewhere else.

Lets face it guys, might not be totally impossible but almost impossible at the moment. Meaning we wont see this scene moving forward anytime soon.

I'm packing my 3.55 in a corner, buying a new one soon, you never know. I'm not hoping anymore, it was obvious seeing the inertia of the scene that nothing was gonna happen for some time.

Maybe in a few years when PS4 will be here someone will find another way in.

Not without the proper keys. The Keys are the answer to everything, both good and evil.
