Rumor: PSJailBreak Combatted via New PS3 Models & Encryption


Sponsored Links
211w ago - This weekend I heard from a good source (my guy in Oz Land) that Sony will be combatting the PSJailBreak with new PlayStation 3 models and PS3 HDD encryption.

This is what he said, to quote: "I heard Sony is holding back new supply of consoles, as they are removing dev and debug modes. This means you cannot get consoles easily fixed in repair centres so no more extended warranties.

THIS MEANS PSJB AND PSGROOVE WILL NO LONGER WORK ON NEW CONSOLES"

He went on to state the following, to quote: "Additionally, it is rumoured, the new 320GB PS3's will have firmware loaded onto the HDD and encrypted in a way that you cannot do a DD copy to a new HDD, so no longer can you load a heap of games to your HDD as you will be locked to the one that was loaded retail."

We have to wait and see now... M$ did the same with their consoles when we jtagged them, so I guess Sony can do the same with an update eh.

Are you selling one? I'm looking for a spare PS3 to keep offline.

I assume if the newer models have 3.21+ Firmware on them they wouldn't be able to since OtherOS/Linux would not be an option any longer anyway.

Errr, that's been the behaviour of PS3 hard discs since day 1.
