    Yesterday, a hacker released the first PS3 Jig Setup Files. His name is unknown as he wishes his name not be spread around the internet because the files are, of course, illegal.

    Here is a little something I took from ps3hax.net:

    Like I said, the files are illegal so no download link will be given at this point. Just thought I'd share with you guys. =)

    P.S.: Sorry for the long post.. Just trying to fit all the details in there.

    Sorry for my superior intelligence (sarcasm) but what does any of this mean?...I can debug my own system?

    Uh, quick question for the uninformed: What are jig files?

    I don't know what any of that means.....but I wonder if the Blu-Ray revoke may come in handy down the road as DRM becomes more invasive.

    It's kinda like in the PSP scene with the whole pandora jig kick battery. Sony uses these files, along with a particular, unknown software, whenever your PS3 gets semi-bricked, whatever. It basically puts it into service mode.

    Obtaining these files are a step in the right direction, however, as stated above, they are pretty much useless right now as we don't have access to the software Sony uses with these files.

    By the way, I don't mean to get off topic, but have you guys heard of that Italian guy and his team that are working on some PS3 exploit or something?

    Seen it Here

    I have a theory (small one I might add) that if sales get real poor maybe $ony's dev team may leak source codes to hack there own system to stimulate sales growth.

    I really do hope it gets hacked (not just for backups) to see the full potential of the PS3.

    Yeah I ran into it earlier, essentially hes using the backup utility to find out which directories are accessed in its process and hoping to get past the hypervisor through there.

    imo its too obvious of a route for Sony not to have seen coming.

    They only loose money on consoles sold, they only make money off the games. So selling more consoles by kick starting the ps3 to be hacked is doubly bad for Sony. And I highly doubt they're going to give away the unhackable title like that.

    Interesting...I was going to post yesterday but decided I had enough PC for the day but I remembered just now. I hope it leads somewhere, though I am quite surprised that I am a bit "out of the loop" (by only a day or so though ;) np though) but I liken that to the past promises and security "issues" from that and the other site. But in any case, I wish good luck to those who are diligently trying to release something.

    You say Sony uses an unknown software, is the software remotely accessible? is it in the ps3 itself or somewhere secret deep in Sony HQ?

    Highly doubt it's in the PS3 itself..

    More than likely it's located deep within the roots of Sony's computers, buried behind millions of firewalls, and locked with a combination of 1000 passwords and encryption keys.

    Lol. Yeah, probably not that secured, but you get the idea. ;)

    Woah. How did you get these?

    Anyways, thanks for the link though I'm not sure it's legal.. lol

    But yeah, there is really nothing we can do with these files, but still a good find.

    Oner with all do respect linking to ps3news is bad. That site is full of nothing but hackers, popups, ad, and occasionally trojans. I think I remember you posting something about one of the times they got hacked and were laughing at the administrator there. I recommend that site to no one.
