Sony has been worried ever since notorious hacker George Hotz a.k.a Geohot pushed out a jailbreak exploit for the PlayStation 3. Now, while this landed Geohot in some big legal trouble with Sony, cost of which have been allegedly financed by Microsoft. Regardless of that, it did fuel the PS3 jailbreaking scene, something obviously Sony doesn’t like. According to PSX-Scene, the upcoming PS3 jailbreaking guru is Mathieu Hervais who claims that he has a jailbreak exploit for PS3 3.56 firmware. Details, after the break.
Mathieu Hervais tweeted that he has a jailbreak exploit for exploiting metldr, the bootloader and PS3 3.56 firmware.
So as much as Sony wants to keep hackers from exploiting its gaming console, it definitely seems like the PS3 jailbreaking scene is going to new heights, with more and more hackers trying to jailbreak/hack the PS3 in order to run custom games.
However, Mathieu Hervais has said that he does not plan on actually releasing this exploit, because obviously, no body wants to get sued, that too by Sony.
Sure enough, other hackers know that if they release their exploits for the PS3, they’re likely to get in trouble with Sony, and who knows, Sony might drag us all in the lawsuit as well.
