PS3 Jailbreak Code Released To The Public

It’s probably a rather stressful period of Sony’s PS3 console. First we had the PSJailbreak which claimed to allow users to backup their games to a hard drive, and now a hack called PSGroove has surfaced, claiming to be an open source PSJailbreak. According to this latest hack, the code must be downloaded and installed on an AT90USBkey or Teensy++ USB development board, after which homebrew folks will be able to execute unsigned third-party apps and games on the PS3. Currently the ability to boot ISO files is temporarily disabled, but you can be sure that a workaround will be available pretty soon. What will Sony’s response to this be? Now that a code is out in the wild, a lawsuit might not be able to keep this under wraps.
