195w ago - Over the weekend geohot, famous for unlocking Apple's iPhone, has posted a few tweets on his Twitter 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 http://pastie.org/589218 ... 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?"
Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
Nah, it wasn't in the public channel... that was just set up for people who whined about not having an IRC channel any more. As usual, nothing ever happens in it so it may end up being closed again as only a few people idle there.
On IRC geohot just messages CJPC by using /msg CJPC but he doesn't stick around to have a detailed conversation most of the time.
OMG I Idled like 5 days in IRC hoping to see something, and today I'm away and geohot came on IRC. I think that CJPC is getting the hang on the tool, shame that geohot can't experiment with it in RL like CJPC. Would be nice. Those 32Bits it's a great start seeing he started last month with hacking.
