the PS3 may have been cracked

category: general [glöplog]

the guy (George Hotz) should be trustful, he was one of the first to crack the iPhone...

let's hope for a PS3 scene ?

Would be really nice if it turns out to be legit. Demos utilizing RSX and a decent media player like XBMC on my PS3 would be nice indeed!

I wonder how much faster "Linger.." could have been released if Plastic could have skipped all the Sony QA.. ;)

couple months, probably. TRC compliance takes time, especially when you're doing it for the first time :)

well, it depends on what the target of the crack is.

if your goal is to break the copy protection/DRM measures, then yes, there's some work left to do.

however, this exploit does provide everything you need for unrestricted software execution on the PS3.

kudos to the designers for a design that allows the latter without compromising the former. :)

Ryg: the current exploit requires you to glitch the bus by cutting a line for 40ns so it's not a pure-software exploit. In order to make a pure software exploit out of this hardware exploit you have to bust through all the other security shit keito pointed to.
