124w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation 3 hacker No_One has now announced that the PS3 3.60 Slim NOR Flash has been dumped via PNM board socket and the 3.6x keys may be coming soon.
To quote: Hi mates, I'm going to be on vacations for 3 weeks. I just wanted to tell you that PNM project will be stopped during this period.
But, i've some great news for you. I successfully dumped a 3.60 NOR flash using one of the socket ! The second socket has been validated too. We are not far from our main goal : "jailbreak again the PS3" !
Here are some snapshots:
host console with a new feature (NOR FLASH details...)
PNM with a NOR Flash on Socket #1

Here is another PNM Project Update from No_One stating that it is now in the final stages, with both NOR flash sockets now working and soon a full tutorial on how to use PNM to find currently unknown v3.60+ keys on newer PS3 firmware versions.

I wanted to announce that PNM project has entered its last stage. PNM is now wired to the motherboard of a SLIM PS3 : DYN-001.
The first results are fine. PNM is correctly powered by the PS3 itself. Much better, PNM is now capable to power on/off automatically the PS3.
Firmware is choosen using a jumper. Here is how it will work (very soon):
remove the power cable
place the jumper to choose Firmware #1 or Firmware #2
connect the power cable
And then the PS3 starts automatically without human interaction. Let me clarify some points read here and there.
I never promised the 3.6+ public keys! I just said that PNM will allow to find them nothing else.
This project is a hobby. I work as fast as I can. Please stop the lame remarks concerning the delay!
I will come back soon with the final video demonstration.
