PS3 Jailbreak – Now in Apple flavor!

The newest member of the PS3 jailbreaking tool crowd is the iPod family. More specifically, iPods running the open source media firmware Rockbox. Even better news, theoretically it should be possible to use this same method on any MP3 player running the Rockbox software. Right now the exploit package only works on select generations of the iPod Nano and iPod Classic line, but if the trend set by the PSX-scene forums continues, it would be worth checking back in the near future if your device is not already supported. Thanks to [shuffle2] for providing the hack, and [DanAdamKOF] for the heads up.

If Apple isn’t your device of choice, you can also check out some of your other jailbreaking options.

    Alright, so first it was an expensive dongle. Then it was a cheap USBTiny. Then the Ti 84 that quite a few people have, now a popular electronic device that lots of people have.

    What next? PS3 jailbreak with a microwave?

  2. _n3o_ says:

    next is the ps3 jailbreak using the sixaxis ;)

  3. Josh says:

    They also have this ps3 hack for a bunch of android phones and a palm phone if im not mistaken, as well as the arduino duemillanove. Get with the program hackaday this article is like a week old! And n3o is right, has been putting all this stuff up.

    @_n3o_: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A?

    It’s really quite impressive how fast the ps3 hacks are coming out. People are really going to town.

    The Teensy isn’t an expensive dongle…

  8. Nicko01 says:

    I think what BenJ was referring to was the original modchip that was about 150 USD.

  9. NatureTM says:

    I ordered parts for this about a week ago. I guess I won’t be needing them…

  13. rick rude says:

    with this release, the amount of devices usable to hack a ps3 now probly out number ps3s themselves. good work fella’s

  14. krazykit says:

    remember: don’t ask for the rockbox folks for support. this is an unsupported patch and NOT in the main build of rockbox.

  15. jamieriddles says:

    This is so epically awesome! Sony’s getting ridiculed!

  16. w0rl4ck says:

    remote exploit via JavaScript. then cfw = done!

  17. Tom says:

    Does this mean people will sell their AT90USBKey again? I need one, and not for PS3 hacking…

  18. David Dembroski says:

    CORRECTION. This does NOT work with the ipod classic but the ipod video.

  19. DanAdamKOF says:

    @Josh, This was ported to the iPod on the 24th, how is this a week old? How dare you insult my submission (joking).

    BTW I would like to see a WRT router use some hardcore bitbanging and become the next jailbreak device :)

    FW 3.50 kills the buffer overflow in the descriptor this uses. Luckily SCE has ported code for most of the stuff in the XMB full of exploitable memory corruptions and there is no page protection.

    This is just a bunch of leeches altering other peoples work though and not trying to use it for anything but piracy. Probably why people with talent couldnt care less about game consoles.

  21. projectbluebook says:

    haha, now port the code to a PIC 12F683 for ultimate pwnage potential…

  22. mike says:

    this works with sansa c200,c230,c240,c250,e200 etc. v1 model mp3 players
    one listed at 21.00$ shipped is cheapest solution besides building one from scratch and pic.
