PS3 3.73 Jailbreak Coming Soon
KaKaRoToKS stated "A solution for 3.60+ will be available soon, so no worries - people just need to be patient" comes some more Tweets today on JailBreaking 3.73 PS3 Firmware.
In summary, KaKaRoToKS upcoming PS3 3.73 Firmware JailBreak will be able to install homebrew .PKG files but unfortunately PlayStation 3 backup managers will not work as they require lv1/lv2 patches that won't be included.
i dont know yet about emulators... All in good time. There s no rush
yes, that's the point, to run homebrew.. showtime should work fine. not tested yet.
Nope, completely software based.. I won't say anything more than that for now to avoid them blocking it before release.
The "kind of" meant I need to fix NPDRM algo for it to run. And no, this will not allow backup managers. And no, it's not a CFW
1 - I won't share it until it's ready to use (still a bit complicated + some missing components), 2 - don't update if you're on 3.55.
Updated my ps3 to 3.73... oh and THEN I jailbroke it! (kind of)
[KaKaRoTo] heri, docpaul showtime would work fine
[sandungas] kakaroTo, this means new tcl patches for mfw and some changes to manage 3.73 ?
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, and no I didnít fix the npdrm algo, thatís what Iím missing (hence the ďkind ofĒbut Iím not
working on that, thatís someone elseís job
[middleman] gonna debut it at ccc kakaroto or before?
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, and even if npdrm signing worked.. how do you install your pkg on an OFW 3.73 ?
[heri] so KaKaRoTo, once the NPDRM algo is fixed, a release will come?
[KaKaRoTo] heri, another missing bit, but once thatís fixed, yes
[KaKaRoTo] but Iíll probably be off country for the next 2 weeks
[KaKaRoTo] so all work will have to be paused
[heri] oh, fair enough. we can all wait 2 weeks hey we have waited months anyways
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, that might work.. you could also just install your pkg on 3.55 then upgradeÖ
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, upgrading doesnít delete any of your packages
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, issue is, youíre lost if you didnít do it before upgrading
[ddoo] but they fail because the npdrm algo is spoted by the checks in 3.56+
[KaKaRoTo] heri, also note, I ďannouncedĒ it because I was excited to see it work as expected
[KaKaRoTo] doesnít mean itís ready for release
[KaKaRoTo] ddoo, exactly
[heri] yeh thats what we were saying just before you came
[KaKaRoTo] so you need : 1 Ė npdrm algo fixed, 2 Ė a way to install stuff
[heri] you only announce when you are confident it works
[KaKaRoTo] 1 has been done by someone else (donít know if heíll share it), and 2.. well, I just did it
[KaKaRoTo] heri, well, I was testing on 3.60 and it worked, but yes, I did upgrade to 3.73 to test that it still
works just to make sure I donít tweet any false hopes
[middleman] but you cant run what you installed until 1 is fixed correct?
[KaKaRoTo] middleman, exactly
[docpaul] nice, thx KaKaRoTo
