    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.

    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)
    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.


    [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
    [middleman] interesting
    [docpaul] nice, thx KaKaRoTo
    * KaKaRoTo needs to hide now if he wants to get any work done
    [KaKaRoTo] ttyl

    Awesome that it is in the works but sucks that there's no backup managers. Probably won't be to far behind after HB is on the PS3 with that firmware. (Yeah, I'm still on 3.55 but still want a break in the scene.)

    Still awesome news for everyone. Those who have a firmware newer than 3.55 and those stuck on 3.55 and not being able to play newer games (the loader will come later than the CFW but still good news). Dunno how long until lv2 peek and poke will be added but it's bound to come. When the first set of CFW for PS3 was released, only signed Homebrew was loadable and then shortly after, newer ones came out with lv2 peek, poke and syscall 36 which allowed Backup loading.

    I'm super hyped about this break through and know that a break has to be made before any loader development is messed with. I'm sure it won't take any time at all for a loader to get up and running now that HB is available. I was just saying it sucks the ps3 has much more security than the wii since once a wii FW was cracked all was back to normal for the most part. The amount of time it took for this FW exploit to be found goes to show how much effort sony put into it as well as how much effort the people to bring the CFW put into the means that made it possible. Wasn't trying to rip on them for not hitting ten home runs at once. This major break in the ps3 will open a new world of apps, loaders and possibilities.

    I have seen this floating around the net and have yet to find a legit copy of any CFW. But I have seen files that are named 3.73-jb on youtube but cant find anyone with backups working on it.
