Xorloser on PS3 Custom Firmware and 3.50 x3Max JailBreak


Sponsored Links
189w ago - Recently we reported on a 3.50 Firmware JailBroken PS3 x3Max video, and today PS3 developer xorloser has commented on the hack, as well as explaining why obtaining the hmac key for PlayStation 3 PUP files will not lead to PS3 Custom Firmware.

To quote from his blog, linked above:

"the hmac key for PUPs doesnt magically allow custom firmware. this is because all of the files that make up the PUP are signed anyway, so you cannot make custom versions of any of those files because you cannot sign them.

as for x3max supposedly working on v3.50, i call fake."

Does anybody know, when you downgrade does the PS3 format the flash then flashes the new update, or just over write the files? I updated to 3.50 then downgraded to 3.41 again and im seeing a BUNCH of files in the flash i've never seen before?

EDIT: Nevermind, I think the flash does get formatted I just found my old dump and it contains the same files... bummer

It sounds like you are using a spoof payload, and if that is the case it is not unsual in the slightest.

I have to laugh when things like this come out and people yell fake over and over. I just wait to see if its real or fake now. No point being pessimistic the whole time.
I say uncalled for mentioning Math by name
no it wasn't. the guy is always a doubter. Doubted geohot, doubted the original jailbreak (probably. not sure) and doubts this. I would love this to be real just so they can stick it to all the devs saying its most likely fake.

Does it still show 3.5 in the system information when booted normally without jb dongle?

No when I boot it without the 3.50 spoof it will show 3.41 again...
