Last week, PS3 developer and hacker Mathieulh confirmed that he had found a PS3 jailbreak 3.56 exploit but it would never be released to the public die to Sony’s ongoing crackdown against PS3 jailbreak developers. However, him and his IRC friends have been posting “proofs” for 3.60 jailbreak on IRC, YouTube and Twitter. Today, a video has been released on YouTube confirming his claims of a successful PS3 3.60 firmware jailbreak.
Mathieulh stated the following regarding PS3 Firmware 3.60 running homebrew code, on IRC:
“[03:15] while you are insulting me like morons, I already have code running on 3.60, and I am laughing, and guess what ? I am happy I stopped sharing, you can hate me for it, I don’t care.”
On IRC, Mathieulh also posted a video of his own but then privatized it currently rendering it unavailable:
Mathieulh: actually you want video proof, let’s share one for the lol
Shortly following, another PS3 3.60 JailBreak video was posted followed by the user removing it and reposting it with another account.
From IRC on the alleged PS3 3.60 JailBreak video:
mastag23: just fyi:
mastag23: that is fake
mastag23: it would look legit if he hadn’t of ran the debugging station launcher
mastag23: You fail “Connected from 192.168.0.2 on port 1000” (port might be wrong pretty blurry.
mastag23: This is a debug unit. That can’t be done on a retail unit. Run the Debugging Station Launcher on a retail and the debug toolsï»¿ won’t connect to it, yours obviously does
mastag23: debugging station launcher cant be connected to on retail
mastag23: if he hadnt of posted debugging station launcher
mastag23: he would be believable
There is currently no ETA as to when it will be released for general use but we’ll definitely let you know once its out for public download. Meanwhile, check out the following video proof showing a package installing and the new online save function that was added in PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60.
