    Hell yeah! [​IMG]

    Then again, I don't own a PS3 so this exploit would be of no use to me.

    Only problem is that it's a hardware hack. This is only supposed to be for research purposes.

    He only tested it on FW 2.42, it could theoretically be patched already on the later firmware.. the most recent one is 3.15 :/

    Okay, before all of you start jumping into your pants, it's a hardware exploit.

    It's not even confirmed to be working, even if it's likely.

    This doesn't load backups. Nor it's certain that it could lead to the development of a software hack and/or a backup loader.

    It's highly possible for a backup loader to be developed from this since he states that this pretty much allows you full access to the system. Also, from what I've heard it only works on FATs, as it needs the Other OS to do the hack.

    As a couple people have said this has no baclup loaders of any sort (what exploits ever do?) so it's useless to 99% of gbatemp.

    However it is a good news update on what's going on, this will hopefully lead to greater advancements.

    Its a PS3 'feature' thats part of the XMB, you go to 'OtherOS' and you can install Linux. Only on the Fat PS3s though.

    Could lead up to PS3 homebrew in a year or so..

    We still don't know if this will really give full access or not. Theorically it should work, but pratice is far from theory.
    Also, backup loading might be hindered by something else, like a hardware anti-piracy protection of some sorts independant from the Hypervisor.

    There's still much to be discovered, it's not even clear if this exploit will work on all Fat PS3. It might even only work on his PS3 for some special coincidence, for how much we know now... It has to be tested throughly before we can safely claim that the PS3 has really been hacked.

    why off an external usb? the internal harddrive is replaceable.

    If you're running on internal hard drive, and must user OtherOS, your partition options are quite limited.

    It will be interesting to see how this will be developed in the future. Although, I don't think I will be modding my ps3, I use it mosting to play Blu-Ray movies.
