PlayStation 3 fully hacked.
So I go look at the ps3/vita hacking scene today, and find that the ps3 has been fully hacked. Meaning that no matter what Sony does (Firmware updates) and such, there will always be a CFW (Custom Firmware) for the new Firmware updates.
This is the beginning of a very long and heavily scheduled future of the PS3 hacking scene. The release of the LV0 key means that any system update released by Sony going forward can be decrypted fully with no effort. Sony has no cards in this game. As of today LV0 is now decrypted for ever until the end of time. There is alot of reverse engineering to get the decrypted loaders from it since Sony had changed a lot of security algorithms to protect these loaders inside LV0 however, rest assure every PS3 developer is hot on the news of everything going on.
So yeah, looks like Sony will have to push out a ps4 sometime soon, or just give up.
By having the ps3 fully hacked you can:
- Play backed up games/ anything released for the ps3 from the ps3 harddrive
- Play/run homebrew (i.e Emulators, tools, games)
- Install Custom Firmware
