256w ago - 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

it'd be nice if that worked, linux accesses sandboxed part of nand... 4mb of uselesses.

hacking the PS3, not hacked in three years how long will it take me?"

guys, sometimes other things come first like school, family, work and whatnot. Other times people need time to clear some ideas in their heads, at least when Im trying to compile, or make something work it takes days or weeks before I get to the solution.

Some times I try to hard for a couple of days/weeks leave it alone for some days/weeks and when I come back to start over again I find a way because I had time to review everything with a clear head. Like the previous poster said he tried and that doesnt mean that was his last attempt.

He also stated that his college had begun, so maybe he is focusing on his schoolwork. He isn't even going to try to hack iphone 3.1 firmware.

Well the ps3 is one tough cookie to hack, so i kinda figured for the start he was going to run into a wall.. a PS3 Wall.. well he did try and E for effort has to be given to him.
I second that motion.
