Ps3 jail broken

Recommended Posts




The genius who jailbroke (read: hacked) Apple's coveted iPhone has done it again. This time 'round, George Hotz, aka Geohot, set his sights on the PlayStation 3 and took a mere five weeks to "crack" the Sony gaming console.

This feat is remarkable due to the fact that the PS3 is the last remaining box that can't be modified for pirated games, unlike the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. Geohot has remained tight-lipped on the sort of exploits he can achieve with his utterly disfigured PS3 pictured above, but we suspect loading unsanctioned programs to tap on the powerful Cell processor is one of the possibilities.

So what's in it for PS3 owners, you might ask? How about bringing back the Linux operating system support as well as other funky software compatibility? It would be nice if we could use the console as a regular computer, just like a PC or Mac, and unleash the smoking-fast 3.2GHz chip at a bargain price of around $357.24. The burning question is whether Sony will be as forthcoming as Apple with its hijacked product. Only time will tell.

wonder what he will do with it

I think the US military was working on hacking the PS3 too. :P


Once governments or terrorists get their hands on this guy's mod/hack research into the ps3, they'll be able to get cheap super processors and mod them to run all their advanced weaponry or long range missiles. :P
