PS3 Firmware v3.56 Breaks Homebrew Hack, At Least For a Couple Hours
While everybody was gearing up for tonight’s PSP2 announcement, Sony released new firmware for the PS3. v3.56 changes nothing for most folks, but apparently it breaks Geohot’s hack. The internet tells me this new firmware includes a new app key, and you’d have to update all your unlicensed apps with the new key for them to work.
As you would expect, however, the hackers got to work immediately. And one, known as KaKaRoToKS, tweets that he’s already got the new keys up and ready to go. It went like this:
pup from ps3utils and puppack/pupunpack from ps3tools in github.com/kakaroto can now pack/unpack 3.56 correctly.
lv1 and lv2 keys are now pushed to my ps3keys repo.. more coming
isoldr keys are now pushed too.
Just got home, found the application keys while on the bus, now also pushed to github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys enjoy!
There you go. The hackers figured this one out easily because they knew where to look, and so, Sony, you’re gonna have to shake things up next time.
