- As a BIG follow-up to his Sample PS3 Linux Isolated SPU Loader Code
has now released his coveted PS3 hack so end-users can exploit their non-Slim PlayStation 3 Entertainment System!
Essentially what it does is modify the PS3's hypervisor adding two calls for reading/writing to all of the system memory.
To quote: "In the interest of openness, I've decided to release the exploit. Hopefully, this will ignite the PS3 scene, and you will organize and figure out how to use this to do practical things, like the iPhone when jailbreaks were first released. I have a life to get back to and can't keep working on this all day and night.
Please document your findings on the psDevWiki
. They have been a great resource so far, and with the power this exploit gives, opens tons of new stuff to document. I'd like to see the missing HV calls filled in, nice memory maps, the boot chain better documented, and progress on a 3D GPU driver. And of course, the search for a software exploit.
is the coveted PS3 exploit, gives full memory access and therefore ring 0 access from OtherOS. Enjoy your hypervisor...
