In light of recent events, it has been decided that it is best to have all discussion on these matters in one place, stickied. There has also been a revision of the PSU rules with regards to these issues and these are stated below:
All posts in this thread and the rest of the forum must adhere to these rules.5. No hacking/Mod discussion - All information regarding hacking/modding the Playstation 3 will go into one sticked thread in the PS3 Discussion sub-forum. All information regarding hacking/modding the Playstation Portable (and any of its subsequent successors) will go into one sticked thread in the PS1, PS2 & PSP Discussion sub-forum. In these threads, no links to forums or news sites discussing how the hack/mod can be achieved will be tolerated. In addition, links to websites selling hardware pre-hacked/modded, or offering to sell equipment that can be used to hack/mod the PS3 and PSP are banned. Members are forbidden to post information or instructions that would enable another user to hack/mod their PlayStation 3. Similarly these rules will be upheld for hacking/modding the Wii, DS and the Xbox 360 for those respective systems. A stickied thread will be created in the appropriate sub-forum if members wish to discuss these matters. Linking to or naming websites that provide ISO's, ROM's or their related software is also not allowed.
Discuss the topic within those rules.

I want to know how this USB hack works on a technical level, how do you get access to the kernel via this USB dongel? Prettty cool stuff.Other opinions are available.
I can imagine Sony have a Firmware Update being made as we speak!
Oh and btw, I'm not against the idea, just the team that have released this one.
What we have now is a clean cut. A new thread with a revised rule that everyone can see (they've been told to read the OP after all).
Where's all the info gone from the other thread?
I mean people (not me) take their time to try and explain stuff to others about this and then it all vanishes and it gets replaced with an empty thread.
Anyway there's a funny story on N4G about the pirates being pirated already. They're begging you to buy the original device from them 'cos you get warranty
There's gotta be a hefty dose of irony there.My game scores, based on how much I enjoyed playing 'em: Resistance: 93% Motorstorm/PR: 90%/90% RB6V: 45% NGS: 30% Oblivion: 30% COD3: 55% SC Double agent: 25% Full Auto: 0% Ridge Racer 7: 10%.

They come round to your house and steal your console.
Maybe they'll do some stealth code in a game that doesn't install until a certain date.
Like release GT5 and in November 2011 when almost everyone has it it runs some code that causes your PS to self destruct, or just stop reading the dongle.
Yeah, I don't know how possible that is.My game scores, based on how much I enjoyed playing 'em: Resistance: 93% Motorstorm/PR: 90%/90% RB6V: 45% NGS: 30% Oblivion: 30% COD3: 55% SC Double agent: 25% Full Auto: 0% Ridge Racer 7: 10%.

They can probably find a way to stop code to run from USB dongles, got to think this somehow bypasses the check for signature code.Other opinions are available.
If things get into a firmware battle, Sony will win. It'll be a cat and mouse chase, but Sony can revoke and change the keys as often as they like. Publishers will support this, despite the hassle, because it will make them more money in the long run.
Those are a couple of things out of the many Sony can do. Sony haven't been so arrogant that they never thought the PS3 would be exploited in some form. They have contingency plans, with several steps they are prepared to take to safeguard their investment.
Hackers are clever people, but they can only hack/MOD around the limitations before them. If Sony keep changing the limitations and make the hackers jump through hoops, the hackers may find a one size fits all solution eventually, but then Sony will take the next step.
I'm anti-piracy, anti-homebrew and anti-backup. My view is that if you don't look after your own property to begin with, that's your fault.
I'm not concerned in the slightest about this MOD. I'll continue to update my firmware every time its offered to me. Sony are concerned however, but what they do likely won't affect me.
Sony own their firmware and will do everything within their power to stop unsigned code running on it. They can take firmware steps, but they can also attack those who do not upgrade to the latest firmware.
This will likely be my last contribution to this thread. I'm not interested in this MOD at all. I'll only come in regularly to make sure you are all following the rules.
