A few days back an FLA file and some instructions were posted to compliment the previously released update software for the PSJailBreak Team's PSDowngrade product, and today the PS JailBreak downgrade files have been leaked through a nice but anonymous source on IRC. Currently work is being done towards a free public PS3 downgrader alternative to the pay version, and based on a preliminary examination of the leaked PS Downgrader 3.41 PUP and Lv2diag.self files they appear to include a modified PUP along with the official Sony PlayStation 3 JIG Files that were also leaked nearly two years ago.

Usually JIG files use a special PUP to downgrade as inside its CORE_OS package is flagged for downgrading, however, this is not the case. It seems that the PUP has been modified to allow downgrading, perhaps via another yet undisclosed exploit... Time will tell for sure!

If what I think is true (that this works totally outside the firmware) that means that all current PS3 systems will be fully hackable now and forever, and Sony will have to make a totally new hardware revision in order to stop future piracy (as they won't be able to stop current devices without also harming legit users).

Wow.

yea, a new hardware revision should be in order.. but then again they might have something up there sleeves.

and it's crazy, i guess geohot feels pretty dumb right now.

Holy. Shit. This is probably the best PS3 news in a while, and I'm hoping this won't get patched for quite some time! If a hardware revision is needed, well, then Sony's screwed. Hopefully, the next piece in the PS3 Scene is that the PSGroove will become undetectable by Sony! I'm gonna wait to use Groove until that though...

EDIT: Wait, if the console is downgraded, is it detectable by Sony when you go online? Won't they just ban you or something (assuming of course that they normally DO ban you?

Nice. I'm glad to see this console hacked. I'm curious to how Sony will handle the situation.

Make more updates and say they did it before Nintendo.

Sony's been doing the standard "just check for the latest firmware" deal online, they have NOT banned anybody, so nobody knows what they check for yet.

so, it is now confirmed that it will work on firmware's higher than 3.41?
edit: i see, the article kind of hints it, but no word on it yet?
edit: seems to be confirmed by a few people yesterday.

I wouldn't upgrade to anything above 3.41 just because of this news, at least not yet...
... not until there is a fully functioning method available for free
