A new, open source PS3 jailbreak, called PSGroove, is now available for download.
After the PlayStation 3 was finally cracked, the Australian Federal Court quickly put a stop to the jailbreak’s circulation by halting the distribution of the crack and turning the cracking group’s inventory over to Sony, the long-overdue crack’s future was looking grim (for people into that sort of thing).
However, a new, open source jailbreak has just been released, dubbed PSGroove. The crack is available for download, but must be installed onto an AT90USBkey or a Teensy++ USB development board. As with most homebrew-enabling cracks, PSGroove allows a user to run unsigned code on a PS3.
Now that an open source, downloadable crack has made it onto the internet, federal courts will probably have a much harder time preventing its distribution, thus most likely ensuring the longevity of the jailbreak.
