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 :)
Good luck!

Apparently this exploit requires OtherOS and opening the PS3.

And a small amount of soldering i believe... It should also be noted that this will be of no interest to the average user as at this moment in time it is only "Memory access"

However... If you build it, they will come... and it's been built.

That blog was a nice read for a few weeks before he said the magic words :p

I know one thing for sure, he has drawn alot more attention and aroused some hope. I think we're still in for a long and maybe fruitless wait.. but I'll hold off updating ;)
Can stream current pc games through to PS3 Linux & got a spanky Jtag 360 so I got a couple years of waiting in me haha
