    A very good friend of mine who is a propeller head for a living sent me how the PS3 was hacked. Now, i'm still unsure what he's talking about and i also though the PS3 was hacked last year by that George Holz kid, so what's new?

    As you can tell he gets turned on my numbers :)

    His summary is still too complicated for me

    George :confused:

    Simple solutions are quite often the most effective. Redefining "random" to solve randomly generated security is a great example of thinking outside the proverbial box.

    It reminded me of the old epithet:
    Q: How many Micro$oft techs does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Irrelevant. We redefined darkness as the new standard.

    Man this is good news, I was pretty disjointed on how limited my PS3 was as a non gaming device.

    Geohot released a custom firmware for people with the latest OFW (3.55). You don't even need one of those USB development boards anymore, you can just use a normal USB drive of any sort.

    Nothing Sony can do about it now, only option they have is to keep updating firmware and watch as it keeps getting hacked, like with the PSP.
