    Well, we all knew it would come one day. That day is today!
    The PS3 USB Masterkey has been leaked. You can now downgrade from 3.50 or lower firmwares to any other firmware with Open Source Sticks.
    Please be aware that as of know you are not able to downgrade from FW 3.55!


    However, here is the Masterkey:

    Please refrain from posting the MasterKey. Since it is akin to the Wii Common Key, it is actually copyrighted material. People are free to Google for it, though.

    Also, having a source would be nice.

    AFAIK a key cannot be copyrighted, so it's not warez. I remember even marcan saying that. [​IMG]

    You can save your facepalm, I did not repost anything. Now, I deleted the key from my post.
    The Masterkey lets you downgrade from 3.50 to any other lower firmware so you can jailbreak your PS3.
    Having the USB Masterkey gives us even more possibilities to jailbreak a 3.50 PS3, please check in this relation also the X3MAX-Team who claim to have jailbroken the PS3 on a 3.50 firmware.


    cheers...

    I know, but as far as I remember, we had put it as a rule that we couldn't post it. We'll discuss this again between the staff and we'll see.

    The USB Masterkey allow any device to be used and read from USB port, right ?
    So, it's bypassing the 3.42 and 3.50 USB device whitelist protection ?

    Why downgrading instead of jailbreaking using the same USB Masterkey method ?
    I guess KaKaRoTo could find the offset of the 3.42 and 3.50 firmware to make PL3 working on them, no ?

    I wonder if this means that you'll not have to unplug the PS3 to use the Jailbreak device.

    No, it's only a way to bypass the USB whitelist only in order to execute payloads with non-whitelist device. (well, that's what I understood).
    The PS3 is/will still initiate the connected device after a hard reboot.

    sorry for the facepalm-ing. I saw the mod's edit and just assumed. So then a masterkey is pretty much what it says on the tin then? A dev could use this to make all sorts of applications and such?

    Cool but give me a call when I can play the new games. Honestly right now JB seems to benefit pirates the most

    Now they're saying it's the wrong key? I'm so confused. What the fuck is going on? I just wanted to downgrade with my iPhone, if ever possible.

    For that you still need to be able to use Linux on your iPhone, so if it isn't a 2G/3G, you're still out of luck, for now (and probably for VERY long).

    It's a 2G, and jailbroken if it makes any difference. I read some tutorials on how to actually jailbreak the PS3 with it and it looks like I'm in the clear there, I may need to update my iPhone's firmware first but I'm fine with doing that. I just need to downgrade my PS3.
