    Long before PSGroove was released, Kararto started working on his own PSJailbreak version using the N900 phone. -- He has finally been totally successfully on getting it to work. -- But sadly, since the release last night, his site been totally hammered and I can't update this post correctly with all the right technical info, or the released files, called PSFreedom.

    It is called PSFreedom and it works on the N900 devices.

    Would be nice if it was on a more popular phone, but oh well. I'm still waiting for the PSP version, but until then I guess I'll just save up for one of those USB flash programers or w/e they're called.

    yeah, n900 runs a mobile OS that is closest to an original linux distro(maemo if i recall correctly, which is partially based on debian i think), making it much easier to "mess" with on the low levels this "exploit" works on.
    i expect if this will be made possible on a different phone, the next one will probably be an android phone(android is linux too, though a lot more modified and a bit limited compared to what the n900 has)

    Wouldn't it be possible to use a pc for this stuff? When you remove the power part from a usb cable, you prevent the machine's toasting each other, so what's the problem?

    Was quite surprised to read about this earlier today. Anyways, sure enough it does work well enough. It requires the stock kernel for the n900 though and will not function with the power kernel.

    In any case, saved myself some cash for the moment! [​IMG]

    It's great that this is possible. There's also someone working on a TI-84 (calculator) version.

    yes and no.
    a USB-in port can't just simulate a USB device, so you'd have to put something in between, which defeats the purpose of this(making a PS3hack without needing to buy additional hardware)

    Computer usb ports are USB Host
    The port needed for PSgroove is USB Slave
    To turn a USB Host on a computer into a Slave would take masses of arbitrary code.
    It's never going to happen
    However, PSP, Ipod Iphone,n900 and other phones and tablets are USB slave
