    I wonder what are the chances Sony learnt from Nintendo's mistakes and actually patched the exploit fully.

    Stuff like this has always been interesting to me. Might buy another PS3 from a pawn shop to experiment. Not too much Sony can do about that.

    Not a fan of homebrew I take it?

    If Sony did make it so you'd need a legit tool to run the PS3 in dev mode then someone will go the illegal route and pirate the dongle instead of using a overflow exploit.

    Apparently the PSJailbreak team has found a fix!

    I'm not really trusting them at the moment, but if hackers are already in the PS3 then this patch is worthless; it'll only be a matter of time before the firmware is decoded and the necessary files taken from it, etc etc.

    "The team thinks PSjailbreak out an update next week, not compatible with the clones"

    Wow, really? That's great. Because the PSjailbreak dongle isn't dead or anything [​IMG] Trying to make us pay $100+ for this lmao.

    This is what's going to happen

    Someone is going to make this update work on clones to the point where the jailbreak team gets sick of it and drops the project completely, then what? All I know is, I'm not buying the PSjailbreak dongle.

    You are implying that their intent wasn't just to get the initial investment by suppliers and fucking run.

    True

    @Crazzy1: the DNS trick works fine. No need to update for online.

    I thought the dongle couldn't be upgraded. Well, the people who reverse engineered the dongle said so

    It seems promising tho, but i kinda doubt a update will come out or a new unit. I really hope I'm wrong.

    I thought Geohotz already got into the system, and it was released already... there is no firmware modification of anykind that I am aware of though.... well besides his unreleased Linux support.
    It'll probably happen, but I dont think it will happen soon.

    About the DNS bypass trick. Did Sony allow this? Or what? Someone explain please.

    No I mean why does it work. Was it something that Sony allows?

    Could just be an oversight by Sony. I am sure they rushed this update out.
