George Hotz aka geohot, known for hacking the Apple iPhone has hacked the Playstation 3. George announced that he had hacked the PS3 on Friday, January 22nd. After playing around inside PS3, he decided to release the details of the exploit today so that others can help contribute to what will hopefully become a new up-incoming PS3 hacking scene.
From his blog entry: “Here’s your silver platter: In the interest of openness, I’ve decided to release the exploit. Hopefully, this will ignite the PS3 scene, and you will organize and figure out how to use this to do practical things, like the iPhone when jailbreaks were first released. I have a life to get back to and can’t keep working on this all day and night.”
