Sponsored Links
269w 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?"

I think your right also, he has lost interest, it seems... really who knows though...

could this be the end of the PS3 & Geohot craze?

I was too following his post on twitter and the impression I got is that he expected something simpler and faster to do. As no exploit was easily found and he wasn`t finding ways to get to the hypervisor, he kinda gave up for the time being. That`s only my impression though...

My thoughts exactly...

Oh thanks a lot! So the information that the private key isn't stored inside the processor is innacurate, isn't it? Now things start to make sense to me again!

And at least for the private key we know for sure that no one will ever dump it, since it never abandons the chip (I wish we had a ship smily... come to think about it, ships remind me of pirates)
