This definitely could be a huge landmark in the history of Playstation 3 jailbreak scene as Geohot has just brought a fully working jailbreak for firmware v3.55. The firmware will be released in the form of a custom firmware 3.55 .PUP file. However, in an IRC conversation, Geohot says there will be no “peeking or poking” in that custom firmware which indicates there will be no support for running PS3 backups or pirated games. Instead it will purely be a homebrew running heaven!
Here is what Geohot has just posted on his official website:
