Homebrew Jailbreak for Playstation 3 Firmware 3.55 Ready; GeoHot Hits Again with PS3 3.55 Jailbreak [Video]

January 7, 2011, By Alex Ion

Hacker extraordinare GeoHot strikes again. After the iPhone 4 he’s now coming up with a jailbreak for the Playstation 3 with firmware 3.55. Dubbed Homebrew, the latest jailbreak is George Hotz’ answer to Sony’s announcement that the PS3 is unhackable. Looks like you got that wrong Sony, the guy worked hard until 5AM today and came up with a way to break in.

As you know the guy doesn’t like to stay on the sidelines which is why he came up with a video to document “homebrew”.

You can see him showing off that the PS3 is running firmware 3.55 (a stock version that is), then he installs a package he has made from a USB flash drive and voila, the Playstation 3 is hacked and you can enjoy games at absolutely no cost.

This is, as he says, “pretty sweet”, but as usual, don’t ask for a release date right now. He’ll come online with it when he wants to.
