    KaKaRoTo States "A Solution for 3.60+ will be Available Soon

    Post by iPROFamily on Mon Mar 28, 2011 6:42 pm

    an interview with, a consumer electronics site, underground
    PS3 developer KaKaRoTo states something many of you have been waiting to
    hear. He comments on (among other things) recent videos which have been
    floating around that show the 3.60 firmware being jailbroken. He
    refuses to comment on the videos' legitimacy, but mentions that a
    jailbreak solution will be available soon for 3.60, but people will need
    to demonstrate some patience. He fails to mention if he is the driving
    force behind this new unreleased method or if it is associates of his.
    Regardless, this is significant news for anyone who has foolishly or
    mistakenly upgraded to the latest firmware

    What are your thoughts on the recent PS3 3.60 firmware cracking video
    that was uploaded and removed over the course of a day last week? Many
    dubbed it fake and said it was a debug PS3, but when we chatted with the
    guy who uploaded it he defended it as real and said it was a retail

    I’ve seen the videos, and I also talked to the people who did it.
    Whether it’s fake or not, I cannot tell as I have not been authorized by
    the authors to divulge what they did. All I can say is that they said
    they would never release it, so whether it’s fake or not has no
    importance, since in the end no one will have access to it.

    However, as I’ve said to a few people on Twitter, the hack that was used
    on 3.55 and lower was unique and Sony fixed it. So, that’s finished and
    we can’t use that method anymore, but it doesn’t mean that there are no
    other methods to jailbreak. A solution for 3.60+ will be available
    soon, so no worries — people just need to be patient.

    Most people associate “hacking” with “piracy.” You admit to taking steps
    to lock out piracy. Is that getting lost in the shuffle here? People
    assume “hacking” automatically means “pirating.” It seems like piracy is
    often a “necessary evil” that comes along with the process but then
    overtakes any other points.

    There are four words that people keep confusing: “hacker,” “cracker,”
    “pirate” and “cheater.” But it’s not the same thing at all.

    A hacker is basically someone who “innovates and finds solutions to a
    problem.” A cracker is someone who uses his skills to steal, scam or
    harm others. A pirate is someone who just steals copyrighted works
    without paying for it. And a cheater is someone who uses other’s skills
    in order to cheat in games and thinks he’s awesome for clicking on a
    Yes, people unfortunately associate a hacker with a pirate, but it’s not
    the case at all. In my case for example, I’ve never pirated a PS3 game.
    I have bought over 150 games for my PS3 in the last 3 years, and I
    don’t think any of the hackers in the scene want piracy to happen. We
    all just want to find challenges and bring back the freedom that we are
    meant to have on our machines.

    Piracy isn’t a “necessary evil.” It’s not necessary at all. The only
    reason piracy happened on the ps3 is because Sony were arrogant and they
    thought no one could get inside the PS3. But once you install a
    homebrew application, it has full access to everything. There is no
    protection inside the PS3 to prevent piracy. The only protection they
    have is to prevent you from installing a “non-authorized” application.
    If they secured the PS3 internally, piracy would probably never have
    happened because no one skilled enough to hack the PS3 would spend time
    on it!

    We take steps to avoid piracy, but in the end, there’s always someone
    who will implement “backups support”, which is legitimate in many
    countries but unfortunately used for piracy too.

    What has been the public’s reaction to your recent work on cracking the
    PS3’s firmware? Is it equal amounts scorn and appreciation? Are you
    getting hate mail from fanboys?

    I do get/see hate mail, but it’s quite minimal. There was a huge
    reaction of appreciation and happiness. Recently though I’m seeing a lot
    of “stupidity” and “annoyance” : people asking everyday about a 3.60
    CFW even though I’ve said 1,000 times that I’m not working on that.

    Do you think GeoHot/FailOverflow’s PS3 jailbreaking will have an
    industry-wide impact come the next round of game consoles? If so, how?
    Any predictions on how Sony might try to block hacking in the future?

    Yes, I think it will. For one, I think that the industry will try harder
    to make the consoles more secure. Sony will probably try to hire a real
    security expert, because as we’ve seen from Fail0verflow’s analysis the
    PS3 was not secure at all. It almost looks like they hired 5-year-olds
    to build their security! The Cell processor’s architecture is secure
    however, since IBM designed it, but in terms of implementation of
    security by Sony, they completely failed.

    Honestly, the only reason the PS3 wasn’t hacked earlier is because it
    supported Linux from the start. Because of how arrogant Sony was –
    boasting about their unbreakable security – a lot of hackers abandoned
    it even before trying.

    The one effect I’m looking forward to from the Geohot lawsuit is that I
    believe it will bring attention to the hacking community from the
    lawmakers in the U.S. and that jailbreaking a game console will be made
    legal — just like what happened with the iPhone.

    Do you believe it’s futile at this point for Sony to combat the hacking?

    Yes, it’s futile. Their code is full of bugs, and they can’t fix it fast
    enough. We have full access to the machines and we will keep creating
    solutions to whatever they come up with. However, it is understandable
    that they want to protect their investment and they will of course
    continue to fight.

    I think the only solution for them to close this whole issue is if they
    bring back Linux support with full hardware access and add a new
    protection against piracy inside the PS3 so even if a homebrew
    application is installed it wouldn’t be allowed to do piracy. Then, they
    will have secured their system, because we’d have no more reason to try
    to hack it and all the hackers would simply stop.

    Considering their reaction to the scene (suing geohot, grafchokolo and
    others, sending threats to every hacker and trying to enforce the
    message ‘if you touch your own property, we’ll make your life hell’),
    they got a lot of people pissed at their scare tactics. I think some
    people will try to get revenge anyways, so maybe it’s too late for them.

    We already saw one hacker who was offered a job by SCEA (Ed: Android
    hacker Koushik Dutta) and refused it because of their reaction to the
    community, and a lot of people are now boycotting Sony. They are already
    getting payback thanks to their poor community skills. Of course
    they’ll just blame the loss of sales on piracy, but they should really
    think of the fact that most of their losses will not be because of
    piracy but a reaction to their tactics.

    How did you feel when your name was listed in a legal motion by Sony for a Twitter subpoena?

    Well, I must say it wasn’t a happy feeling. I was quite pissed at Sony
    for trying to get information on me knowing quite well that they already
    know all there is to know.

    All information about me – my name, email address, where I live and what
    my job is – are well known already, so I saw no point in them doing
    that. And considering that all my tweets are public, it makes no sense.

    What pissed me off the most was about the Paypal subpoena, because that
    contains more personal information: credit card information, bank
    accounts, addresses, etc. But not for me; it was about getting that
    information from anyone I have had contact with through Paypal. I use
    Paypal for personal transactions, with friends and family, and having
    that kind of information sent to Sony simply because they want to screw
    with us is completely unacceptable. It violates my basic privacy rights
    as well as the rights of many unrelated people.

    Seeing that got me a bit scared of course, but I’d say that mostly it
    got me very angry. I was thankful to see the judge quash their subpoena.
    I do not agree to my personal information, as well as the personal
    information of my friends, to be made available to a corporation like

    Would the allure of hacking games consoles disappear if, as you predict,
    hacking them becomes legal under the DMCA? Or do you believe that would
    lead to more interest in hacking them?

    I don’t think it would change anything. On the contrary, it might give
    the opportunity to those who are scared of Sony to actually step up and
    provide their help.

    I don’t think anyone is hacking the games consoles because it’s
    supposedly illegal under the DMCA. It’s not about going against the
    system, or revolting. It’s more about freedom and about tinkering with
    our property– learning and gaining knowledge.
