Wow nice! I knew that someone would crack the PS3 eventualy.
Cant wait to see what a hacked PS3 can do now.
A truly landmark moment - GeoHot has released the PS3 exploit which gives FULL memory access and therefore ring 0 access from otherOS. He hopes that this exploit will IGNITE the PS3 scene and encourage other hackers to do practical things with it like on the iPhone!!!
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.
This is the coveted PS3 exploit, gives full memory access and therefore ring 0 access from OtherOS. Enjoy your hypervisor dumps. This is known to work with version 2.4.2 only, but I imagine it works on all current versions. Maybe later I'll write up how it works

this is great! but too bad it took a while to hack. i already sold my ps3 a long time ago and got a wii for homebrew
I wonder if sony press him into releasing this some how..THis way he can get it out to the masses so he wouldn't be hushed buy sony or prosecuted buy their lawyers... Its just strange that he wanted to spend time on this and make a usable exploit and now he just gave us the code and told us to go wild with it.....hmmmm....or the media giving him so much "limelight" he thought it would be faster and better to get the hack out buy having everyone work on it... Whatever reason I see exploits and home brew buy spring...YAy!
I am a huge PS3 Fan and will be keeping my PS3 as is.
Good job to those that have achieved this it is Going to be great watching all this unfold, Keep up the good work.
Well done. And that's a serious base to go with as well. Now to see if SONY will be unwavering in staying ahead of the exploits on PS3.
Well, he released the exploit, huh? That's great! I can't wait to see what comes out of this!
What kind of matrix, Neo the one, sephiroth and sparta madness is this? The PS3 hacked? That s*** is more shocking than Danzo's arm!
Good stuff GeoHot. You are indeed a genius with no equal!
