PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.55 Jailbroken, Geohot Confirms and Runs Homebrew [Video]

Finally PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.55 has been jailbroken and the person who is behind this jailbreak technique is Geohots, the same famous iPhone hacker who has developed many tools to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch on different iOS versions.

This jailbreak technique for PS 3 Firmware 3.55 seems to be based on PS 3 root keys released by Geohot this week and on the exploit found by a small group of German hacker called fail0verflow.

Here is the official update note from Geohot’s website:
