I have read quite a few histories on game consoles, they all have been greatly written by great authors, but they all seemed incomplete, they didn’t portray the full history, the full essence of the machine, so as i am involved in the PS3 scene and know quite a bit about it, i thought i would write a complete history, containing the good, the bad and the ugly and believe me the PS3 has quite an exciting history and future, i wanted to write a history that will be enjoyed by everyone, one where people like myself wouldn’t finish the story, thinking there is something missing, i would also like to mention, that this work is my creation, i have written it in my own words, most of it from memory, sourced from various places over the internet, but mostly from ps3hax.net, so without any more interruption, here is the history of the PS3:

As the news here stated that the PS3Yes key was released, via some twitters we were left unsure, well it can be cleared up now, KaKaRoTo has successfully reversed the Key and added it to PSFreedom, a few messages from his twitter:
Dongle key reversed from PS3Yes hex. PSFreedom now enables service mode : “insmod psfreedom.ko jig=1″
They obfuscated the key, xor-ed it with 0×36 and swapped bytes 11 and 16. Here’s the key : http://bit.ly/f3K1ac

Jailbreak PS3 using the HTC Desire HD (aka HTC Ace / HTC Spade). The phone needs to be rooted first.
Power off, then power on the device with ‘volume down‘ pressed and selecting the ‘recovery‘ option, by using ‘adb recovery’, by installing ‘Quick Boot’ from the Market or by installing ‘ROM Manager’ from the Market. Navigation in the recovery image as follows:
Volume Up / Down to move between options
Power key to select an option
Select ‘go back’ option to go back
Step by step install instructions:
Download 18.104.22.168 r2 ClockworkMod Recovery for Desire HD – DOWNLOAD (ROMraid Load Balancing) – MD5: f84a93a5ae2fb86ee409fa2609a2c1c8
Download fastboot (included in download link below) if you do not have it already.
Turn off your phone and take out the battery. Unplug the phone from the PC / charger.
Replace the battery and turn the phone back on with ‘volume down’ held, then select ‘fastboot’ (using the power button).
Plug the phone into the PC.
Extract the fastboot zip file.
From a command prompt (at the directory containing these new files!) run ‘fastboot-windows flash recovery recovery-clockwork-22.214.171.124-ace-modaco-r2.img’ (subsituting ‘fastboot-mac’ or ‘sudo fastboot-linux’ as required)
When this finishes, from the command prompt run ‘fastboot-windows reboot’ (again substituting ‘fastboot-mac’ or ‘sudo fastboot-linux’ as required)

Revised/updated version can be found here. The follow information is excellent for firmware 3.41 jailbreakers.
It has been about three and a half months, since PS Jailbreak was first announced, you can find the first post here, since then there has been a lot of progress in the scene, from an Open Source version(PSGroove/PSFreedom) of PS Jailbreak being created, to Sony blocking any jailbreak methods with firmware 3.42 and much more, here i will attempt to create a very detailed F.A.Q.
Q.) What firmwares can i jailbreak my PS3 on. A.) 2.76, 3.01, 3.15, 3.21, 3.40 and 3.41
Q.) Can Firmwares higher than 3.41 be Jailbroken A.) No, Sony blocked the method when they released Firmware 3.42 and at this present time, there is no way to Jailbreak beyond 3.41.
Q.) I accidentally upgraded to 3.42/3.50, can i downgrade to a Jailbreakable Firmware. A.) Yes, the scene is full of open source downgraders, the following list of devices are able to do downgrading:
ATTENTION: A word of warning before downgrading, downgrading disables Blu Ray Movie playback.
Q.) When jailbreak came out, i upgraded to 3.41, loosing Linux, can i have Linux again. A.1) As i stated above, there is a downgrade method, so using that, it will be possible to downgrade again to 3.15.
A.2) If you aren’t interested in downgrading or you have a Slim PS3, marcan, is working on a boot loader, that will enable Linux once again on PS3′s past 3.15, check out AsbestOS
Q.) I cant afford nor am i willing to pay $99 for the Official Jailbreak, is there any other methods. A.) Yes you can, you can buy a clone dongle of PS jailbreak, a Dev Board or mobile devices, such as iPhone or HTC Desire. PSGroove Devices: X3max

See below For Payloads
Q.) So i have been hearing about payload’s A.) KaKaRoTo and Hemes are the two most famous payload creators, these payloads add various functions, for example, the payload that allowed 3.41 users to access PSN, original created by Xoeo, make sure you have the most up to date payload.
For a vast amount of payloads for your device, check this site: Hermes V4 KaKaRoTo Pl3 Rockbox Phones
Payloads via PSGrade.org
Q.) So how do i actually Jailbreak the PS3 A.) Well each jailbreak device is different, for instance, on the HTC Desire, you put the phone into recovery mode and select the payload, you then plug the phone into the USB cable, which should be plugged into the first USB port on the left of your console, then(this applies to all jailbreak devices) Power of the PS3, with switch at back for Fat and pull the plug out for Slim’s, re-switch/plug on/in, then press power followed by eject, if done correctly, you should be greeted with two new folders in the games list on the XMB
Q.) Is my console permanently Jailbroken A.) No, you need to Jailbreak each time you power on your device.
Q.) So how do i Backup games A.) You need to install a Backup manager, there are quite a few available
Q.) What are my options for backing up games. A.) You can install games on the PS3′s internal HDD or use an External USB HDD, which needs to be formatted to FAT32, you can also use a FAT32 USB Thumb Drive, note that with FAT32 you are limited to games with single files under 4GB, if you prefer all your games to be on the internal HDD, you can get up to 1TB 2.5″ HDD, or you can use the Xecuter PS3 HDXT method and have your internal HDD on the outside of the machine, the benefit of this, is that you can use 3.5″ Sata and IDE HDD’s as internal storage. Some more PS3 HDD Information submitted by ieder-zijn-meis(Thanks again)
- maximum height is 9,5mm (many 2.5″ drives above 640GB are too high too fit inside)
- maximum PS3 filesystem is 1TB (512KB block size)
- maximum FAT32 theoretical size is 8TB, practical limit on the PS3 is 2TB
- 7200rpm can be used, as well as Flashdrives (although the 1/5th lower loadingtime of GTA5 can be considered too low to justify the higher pricetag of SATA Flashdrives.
- SATAII-300 can be used, although it will work on SATA1-150 speed interface.
- If using external 3.5″ drives hooked up to the internal SATA, you’ll need an external powersupply (some drivebays include them).
- If on low budget or you like DIY: use a normal extension (male to female) SATA cable (and make sure it doesn’t get loose) and recycle the case + powersupply of an external USB harddisk (without using the USB connection/conversion).
- Don’t use RAID or SAN drives with (e)SATA interface, just a plain single drive with a bare SATA connector (many controllers don’t work without drivers/software).
- Games can be hardcoded for BluRay speeds (9MB/s) so sticking a 85~220MB/s harddrive inside will not speedup everything/allways (but most do).
- If you plan on exchanging the drive, download the full PUP of your FW you are using and put it on an USB Mass Storage Device formatted with FAT32 in PS3UPDATEPS3UPDAT.PUP and disconnect the LAN before repowering the PS3 (or you’ll bound to end up with the latest (3.55 now) unjailbreakable/undowngradable version).
- Use a good fitting X screwdriver, the screws fitted to the HD<>tray are made of very soft aluminium.
An image of the Xecuter PS3 HDXT.
Q.) Ok, i have downloaded a Backup Manager, that i want to use, how do i install it. A.) You need to put the PKG on the root of a thumb drive and install, by selecting “Install Package Files” on the XMB, in the games section.
Q.) Ok im fed up with using my thumb drive, is there a way to download apps directly to the PS3.
A.) Yes, though you will have to install this one last app via thumb drive, it mounts a virtual Thumb Drive on the PS3 MHUFreeStore, here is a video:
Q.) So i have heard some games will not work, how do i find out, which game does or doesn’t work. A.) Well i could list each one here, but i wont, instead visit PSJCL(PS Jailbreak Compatibility List), created by Bash, OnePlayer, Chris, Neowarex, Meeplo and xnt14, it is without a doubt, it is the definitive site for PS3 game Backup compatibility information.
Q.) Ok so i have backed up a game, i want to save that game to my computer as an extra backup, or i want to mod the game, how do i transfer it from my PS3. A.) There are two methods, FTP, there are three of those at the moment: PS3 FTP Server by CJCP blackb0x FTP Server by blackb0x PS3FTP by stoneMcClane
Alternativley you can use Comgenies Awesome Filemanager
or Simple Filemanager
if you cant use FTP, or have an External HDD, Comgenies Filemanager is the best choice.
Q.) I want to be able to create my own Homebrew, is it possible. A.) Yes, using the Open Source PS3 SDK, named PSL1GHT, you can create Homebrew, PSL1GHT was created by AerialX
Q16.) So can i play online or view the PSN store, when my PS3 is Jailbroken
A.) No, it isn’t possible, Sony has blocked all attempts to access PSN, we had it back for a while thanks to Xoeo, but that was also blocked, who knows, perhaps in the future.
Q.) To what lowest firmware can I downgrade?(Thanks ieder-zijn-meis) A.) The only safe downgrade with full support of your HW specific variation is to the lowest version available for your SKU when it was released, e.g.:
Q.) People are saying that i can get banned from PSN, if i Jailbreak my PS3, is this true A.) At the moment no, there is no actual cases of bans happening because of Jailbreak
Q.) I decided to downgrade my console using a debug firmware, i got five beeps then it shut down, is it bricked, can i fix it A.) When you start messing with different firmwares, you run the risk of bricking your console, forum member gliitch did exactly that
though he was able to fix it and wrote quite an informative tutorial on how to fix it here
Q.) Ok so i have gone through the process of jailbreaking and successfully unbricking etc, i want to be braver and attempt more exiting exploits, like writing to the flash, is this possible. A.) JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma released an app called Mount Alejandro which enables you to write to flash, you can read more about it here
Q.) I would like to modify the XMB, make it more custom, is this possible A.) TeaM-ACiD1C brought out a modified XMB, you need to use Mount Alejandro if you want to write to the flash, you can find more about it here, it also has the download link
Q.) I have always hated that annoying boot sound the PS3 makes, when it is turned on, can i change it A.) You certainly can, gliitch has written a great tutorial here it will show you how to change the sound and make yourown, or you can simply download the sounds made by gliitch and other members
People who deserve thanks and respect, for making this great PS3 Scene what it is, without them, it wouldn’t really exist Mathieulh, RichDevX, GeoHot, The PS Jailbreak Team, KaKaRoTo, Hermes, klutsh, Amon-Ra, marcan, ThatOtherPerson, AerialX, Comgenie, NZHawk, CJCP, blackb0x, MohammadAG, The PSJCL Team, gliitch and any other person, who has also created a payload, made homebrew, or contributed to the scene.
The other guys that deserve a big thank you, are the site admins, that work to keep you up to date with news and bring you those all important exclusives, the most important being: Pirate, here @ PS3HaX
Also i would like to thank you, the readers, without you this F.A.Q would be pointless, thanks to those that have given me tips, to make this F.A.Q better, like Gonesuper, Spok, ieder-zijn-meis and the guys on IRC.
This F.A.Q is a work in progress, it will be updated and renewed from time to time, if anything is missing, or anything you feel needs added, don’t hesitate to post and let me know, i really hope this helps those of you, just starting out in the PS3 Jailbreaking scene, thanks for reading, your faithful Moderator/News Editor GregoryRasputin

The Nokia N900 version of PSFreedom has been updated, with the application, being rewritten in C++/Qt, here is a quote from the source:
The application was completely rewritten in C++/Qt to get rid of Python dependencies and to make startup faster (2s vs 12s startup on my device), this is from 0.4 onwards, the old post will be kept in the bottom of this post for archiving purposes only.
Changelog as of v0.4 (C++/Qt rewrite)
* Added 3.01, 3.10, 3.15, and 3.41 firmware support.
* Added PL3 1.1 support.
* Added LED indicator support, red on in-progres, green on done.
* Application rewritten in C++/Qt instead of PyQt, overall improvements.
* All images compiled in the binary instead of being stored in /opt.
* About window features a full browser, with back, forward, stop, and refresh buttons.
* Scrolling in about window fixed, should no longer highlight text while scrolling.
* Full browser for PSJCL.com support.
* Added hermes support.
* Added portrait mode.
* Help window without buttons; kinetic scrolling added to help window, thanks to alterego.
Klutsh has released a PSFreedom a new version PSFreedom Recovery Mod.
Klutsh has released a new version of his PSFreedom Recovery Mod — it’s ClockworkMod with PSFreedom support added in. And best of all version 0.9.5.4 includes the game updates patch, and as of 0.9.5.1 you’re able to install retail/psn packages too.
Included are PSFreedom recovery images for the following Android phones:

We posted a here a couple of days ago that KaKaRoTo was working on porting PSFreedom to Firmware 3.01, well he has succeeded, this is what he states via his blog:
I’ve got some great news for those of you who have not updated your PS3 firmware! I have just succeeded in adding Firmware 3.01 support into PSFreedom. I’ve pushed the latest code to github and you can now download the source and compile PSFreedom for 3.01.
For now, you will need to edit config.h and change the FIRMWARE_3_41 into FIRMWARE_3_01, then recompile. However, I will soon add support for dynamically choosing the target firmware version by simply doing a :
echo 3.01 > /proc/psfreedom/fw_version
I will soon add support for firmware 3.10 and 3.15, so be patient, and you will be rewarded. I would like to thank Klutsh as well as Philippe Hub who helped me achieve this port to 3.01.
The new payload changes are available in the PL3 github and any project/port that is also using PL3 should automatically gain support for the 3.01 firmware.
You will also be able to enjoy some new ‘tools’ in PL3 that will allow you to dump the LV2 kernel as well as the decrypted ELF files of the XMB and other configuration files it uses. The ethernet dumping is also now compatible with PS3 Slim models.
I would like to thank, again, those who have donated. For the others, you can still donate, if you appreciate the work I’ve done.

A few days ago i reported about the HTC Desire Recovery Mod by Klutsh, well Amon_RA has released his own version for you HTC Dream owners, a quote from the source:
This is a custom recovery specifically for PS3 owners that want to run PSFreedom.
PSFreedom was written by KaKaRoTo to implement the original PS Jailbreak exploit, based in part on reverse engineering efforts by the PSGroove project.
The only firmware that is currently compatible with PSFreedom is 3.41
Default Android features :
ALL features of my recovery for the Dream are supported (including ABD and Mass storage toggle).
A new menu-item called “- Run PSFreedom” can be found in the main menu.
The menu-item will lead to a submenu allowing you to choose different payloads and even a test shellcode :
* No Blu-Ray emulation (Hermes) : This is a modded PSGroove payload, which allows you to play backups without the need of a BluRay disc inside the PS3.
* Blu-Ray emulation : This is the standard payload with Blu-Ray emulation support, which allows you to play backups.
* Homebrew only : This is the standard payload without Blu-Ray emulation support. It does not allow you to play backups.
* Blu-Ray emulation + peek/poke : This is the same as “Standard payload with BD-Emu”, with additional peek and poke system calls. It is based on the PSGroove payload. It is only needed by developers.
* Homebrew only + peek/poke : This is the same as “Standard payload without BD-Emu”, with additional peek and poke system calls. It is based on the PSGroove payload. It is only needed by developers.
* Test only shellcode : This is a test only shellcode that will force your PS3 to LV1 Panic (beeps, shuts down and blinks the red LED). It is useful to debug whether the shellcode gets executed or not, independently of the content of the payload.
Usage on PS3 :
1. First shut your PlayStation 3 down and then flip the power switch in the back to off (on Slim models, unplug the power cable). Disconnect all USB devices (controllers, USB hard drives, etc.) from the PlayStation 3.
2. Boot your phone into recovery mode, select “- Run PSFreedom” and choose a payload.
3. Now, plug your Dream into one of the USB ports and flip the PS3′s power switch back to the on position (or plug it back in). Do not turn the PS3 on with the power button yet.
4. For the next step, timing is important. You will need to push the power button and then almost immediately after press the eject button, as if drumming your fingers across the two buttons. When you are successful, the PS3 will take a bit longer to start up.
5. When XMB loads, under the “Game” menu there will be two new options, ★ /app_home/PS3_GAME and ★ Install Package Files. Congratulations, you’ve jailbroken your PS3. You’re ready to install homebrew applications.
Installation on phone
This recovery can be installed on any Dream, independent from the rom. Please follow the installation instruction of my regular recovery.
Posted by GregoryRasputin, on 19/09/2010, @ 08:20pm
My original problem with PSFreedom on the HTC Desire, was the rom that your were supposed to install, i didn’t like it, this method by Klutsh, means that you can run any rom that you wish and all you have to do is flash a modified recovery image, based on ClockworkMod v126.96.36.199, so easy to do
A quote from the source:
A custom recovery image for use with the PSFreedom PS3 exploit.
PSFreedom was written by KaKaRoTo to implement the original PS Jailbreak exploit, based in part on reverse engineering efforts by the PSGroove project.
Engineered to work with the MSM72K USB driver and later to work with ADB and Mass Storage by DrMon.
On the 26/09/2010 I will be updating my PS3 to allow my children to go back onto PSN, I will continue to support CWMR – PSFreedom Mod as best I can.
I am not in a situation where a 2nd PS3 is currently a possibility so any future updates after this will be released as Beta’s and I request you be patient if any bugs arise.
Your PS3 must be running firmware 3.41 for this to work
Default Android features:
All features of ClockworkMod v188.8.131.52 recovery including ADB and Mass storage.
Confirmed to work on SLCD Desires.
Custom built CM 2.6.34 Kernel.
A new menu-item called “PSFreedom settings” can be found in the main menu.
The menu-item will load a submenu allowing you to choose different payloads.
Load your own payloads from SD-Card
* Blu Ray (backups without disc): Hermes payload with Blu-Ray emulation support, allows you to play backups.
* Blu Ray (backups with disc): Standard payload with Blu-Ray emulation support, which allows you to play backups.
* Homebrew only: Standard payload without Blu-Ray emulation support, does not allow backups.
* Choose Payload from SD Card: Load your own payload from SD Card
*All payloads have peek/poke enabled
Use on PS3:
* First shut your PlayStation 3 down and then flip the power switch in the back to off (on Slim models, unplug the power cable). Disconnect all USB devices (controllers, USB hard drives, etc.) from the PlayStation 3.
* Boot your phone into recovery mode, select “PSFreedom settings” and choose a payload.
* Now, plug your Desire into the front left USB port and flip the PS3′s power switch back to the on position (or plug it back in). Do not turn the PS3 on with the power button yet.
* For the next step, timing is important. You will need to push the power button and then almost immediately after press the eject button, as if drumming your fingers across the two buttons. When you are successful, the PS3 will take a bit longer to start up.
* When XMB loads, under the “Game” menu there will be two new options, ★ /app_home/PS3_GAME and ★ Install Package Files. Congratulations, you’ve jailbroken your PS3. You’re ready to install homebrew applications.
Installation on phone:
Flash recovery image using unrEVOked.
I highly recommend you download ‘Quick Boot’ from the Market to allow quick rebooting to recovery.
Using Rom Manager to boot to recovery will remove the use of PSFreedom
cwmr-bravo-psf-r0.1 unrEVOked EDIT:
r0.2 : Cleaned code a little, added menu to load own payloads
Allows for adding payloads from SD Card.
Thanks to MarKeR for the tip. cwmr-bravo-psf-r0.2
r0.5 : Updated to latest PSFreedom source – Payloads with new pl3 method – Intergreated Hermes payload. cwmr-bravo-psf-r0.5h
r0.8 can be found here
PSFreedom has been ported to the HTC EVO, by drmon, and H1Vltg3. Those interested in it can download link below.
To quote (tutorial by iitreatedii) :
Step 1. Connect your phone via usb and turn on disk storage.
Step 2. Drag the downloaded file to the root of your SD card.
Step 3. Do a nandroid backup of your phone.
Step 4. Flash the file you downloaded from here via Amon Recovery (I could care less about clockwork :/)
Step 5. Plug your Evo into your ps3 with the power button off for fat consoles and for slim consoles unplug your power cable.
Step 6. Turn on your system with the power button and quickly press eject. If done correctly, ps3 should take a little bit longer to boot up and console should show underneath games, install .pkg files. This is where you can install things such as backup manager.
Step 7. Unplug your phone after successfully booting the ps3 into “dev” mode.
Step 8. You can now restore the nandroid you were previously on and call it a session. Redo the process whenever you turn on the ps3.
Here is another device to add on your list that has been ported, Droid. The folks over at PSX-Scene report that the Droid port is now available to download. The only limitation/problems are to use a short USB cable as the timings are odd, but it should work after a few tries.
