Hackers Crack PS3 Again With JailBreak 2 (JB2)


Once again hackers are claiming to have jailbroken the PlayStation 3 console after Sony patched an earlier jailbreak hack. The new hack, like the original jailbreak method, uses a USB dongle allowing the pirated PS3 titles to run from Blu-ray discs. The latest hack has been labeled as JailBreak 2 (JB2) by many and is showing up in forums giving instructions on how to perform the hack. The PlayStation Network is NOT affected by this hack.

Sony released firmware 3.42 last September in which the ‘old’ jailbreak method was successfully blocked. With the release of firmware 3.60 six months ago after the console manufacturer found more security holes, particularly with the PSN network, it was supposed to protect the PS3 from jailbreaking titles. This kept the PS3 owners who used the original jailbreak method stuck at firmware 3.55 unless they wanted to play recent game titles.

According to some PS3 forums in Indonesia the new jailbreak version is on the market in the form of a $55 dollar USB dongle. The “jailbreak 2″ method would be for recent games, with at least firmware 3.60 on PS3 but requires a games be burned to Blu-ray disc to run. The titles Driver: San Francisco, FIFA 12, God of War Collection Volume II and PES 2012 burned on a disc can be played using the USB jailbreak doggle. Older titles may still also need to be placed on a hard disk along with the USB doggle.
