Apple iPhone Unlocker GeoHot Begins Hacking Sony's PS3

Sponsored Links
270w 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?"

It might require an information leak from sony or ibm to hack the console. Maybe enlist some internet hackers to snoop around.

I have great faith that somehow by some one/group it will be done very soon, probably not this year though...

Surely though if geohot and/or the devs actually do find a mad exploit or hack will we really find out through these pages and geohots twitter account. I doubt it, I think we won't know how successful anyone is until the hack actually gets released. Why announce you've done it before you can apply it to anyone's machine and then Sony fix in an update or something anyway.

Oh well its fun going between here and there everyday expecting the good news to suddenly be released, knowing deep down you'll be doing this a lot before that day arrives.

Hackers/devs whoever is doing something, keep going, your great, only wish there was somehow a newbie could help also

Granted geohot did find another module on the iPhone that could be exploited but he did require other people's work to initially get him into the iPhone to create purplesn0w. His method on the iPhone did work but it was too big and used up too much memory and was quite buggy. With that said, I do hope that he can get something going on with the PS3. I'm just not going to hold my breath on this one.

Nah, they are talking about phone (not PS3) hacking there... see the other guy's Twitter he replied to: [Register or Login to view links]

@geohot cuz any1 going back to 3.0 keeps same bb and so as long as we dont upgrade bb again we could use 5.11.04 exploit to reuse our phones

@geohot reason i ask is that alot of people updated bb during 3.1beta and r sol, but since ther is a known explot in 5.11.04 wuldnt it work?

@geohot How hard would it be to change your program purplsnow to work on 05.11.04 bb baseband if an exploit already exists and is documentd?

when he say: "@BADASSC5 v1 is open source, try making the new exploit work"

this "Exploit" isn't about PS3 or... is?
