95w ago - Following up on the previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 homebrew development group DexL0ve have made available a PS3 patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX consoles followed by a revision below that fixes PS3 crashing issues.
Essentially this PKG release is a patched LV2 DEX (Debug / Test) kernel for CEX (Retail) PS3 consoles based on the recent LV2 Loader release.
To quote: From my limited understanding of PS3 coding and reading the NFO file, that by using the LV2_Loader released by Team Rebug earlier, and by QA flag'ing your CEX machine, this file is basically a patched LV2 DEX kernel that will load fully on your CEX machine and thereby give you some DEX (aka) TEST machine L0VE on your Jailbroken PS3 Console.
From Cyberskunk: Syscall 8, 9, 10 are broken in this lv2_kernel.self. The patch for 3.55 CEX lv2 has been used which ends up point to the wrong offset. The kernel will still work but if an app calls those syscalls the PS3 will crash. Hopefully it was just a mistake and they will fix it..
Finally, from the included PS3 NFO File:
____ U _____ u __ __ _ ___ __ __ U _____ u
| _"\ \| ___"|/ \ \/"/ |"| / _"\ u\ \ /"/u\| ___"|/
/| | | | | _|" /\ /\U | | u | / U |/ \ \ / // | _|"
U| |_| |\| |___ U / \ u\| |/__| \// |,-./\ V /_,-.| |___

|||_ << >>,-,>> \\_ // \\ // // << >>
(__)_) (__) (__)\_) (__)_")("_)(__) (__) (__) (__)
`!` So you have a CEX, and wanted some c0ding l0ve .!.
.. D0n't You Miss -_-_- Peek and P0ke ? ...
Finally thanks t0 --> LV2_LOADER <-- you can n0w
If you want some c0ding l0ve on CEX, QA it first <0>
With thanks to Rebug, An0nymous, Dean, graf_chokolo
FIXED 2/6 - Sorry, first release had wrong offset <v>

As far as I know, this what happens on PS3 scene last 2010:
PSJailbreak was announced around August 17 2010. With solid proofs live action feed how it works and such.
September 1 2010 PSJailbreak was released with OMFG price of $150.
September 10, 2010 PSJailbreak reversed engineered, documented how it works, opensource code and hex codes for development usb jigs released.
September 21 , 2010 Sony updates to 3.42, kills PSJailbreak
October 2010 PSjailbreak downgrade announced/released.
November 2010 opensource downgrade jig reversed engineered, released opensource, ported to development usb jigs
December 2010 Fail0verfl0w announced that they totally defeated the PS3's security schema, they call it epic fail.
January 2011 GeoHot CFW released, NPDRM 3.55 defeated. Allows user to sign their own application on PS3 using the ECDSA bug. Private and Public Keys released.
February 2011 Rebug CFW released. Allows users to login on Developers PSN network. Allows user to fake credits and buy stuff on PSN for free (no credit card fraud happens) [that was really good, it lasted for about 3 months before they patched it]
April 2011 PSN got hacked, more than 10million user account got hacked. Nice!
August 2011, PSN resumed, they took long enough.
No the first usable Jailbreak was not Sony's factory service mode JIG. The first 'usable' jailbreak was a USB device, which in a nutshell, pretended to be a USB hub and glitched the PS3 FW and modified the ram, patching lv2 allowing for peek and poke.
Of course it is more complicated than that, go watch team failoverflow's CCC presentation if you want to learn more about the 3.41 OFW Jailbreak, they have a segment where they explain the crux it. The JIG, is used by Sony to service PS3's by giving special access, but it doesn't allow the user to run unsigned code or game backups.
miandad, no they don't work it's a full debug fw and thoes also don't work on a retail without converting to a dex machine.
No really ? So it wasn't the JIG who enabled Homebrew and game backups ? Geohot gived that to the scene ? Also it wasn't failoverflow who released some keys first and after that egohot also released something just to say "Hey look at me im so good" ?
And by the way his Hardware exploit don't work without linux and you can't clitch the RAM under GameOS. Also he has released nothing from this files he dumped. So what.
