It appears that Sony’s latest system software, Firmware 3.50, has been jailbroken. The latest report from Logic-Sunrise is that Team X3, the guys who brought you the X3max dongle, have managed to crack FW 3.50 and are now able to run homebrew without having to backtrack to 3.41. As proof, the team has shown a vid of their latest work in action.
Quote from Logic-Sunrise (translated with Google):
And this is the third major advance in the world of hack Playstation 3: The jailbreak firmware 3.50 the PS3 by Team X3 with X3maxwithout downgrade! After the jailbreak firmware up to 3.41, then downgrade the firmware 3.50, now Team that X3 has managed to run homebrew on official firmware 3.50 without downgrading! The downgrade is also possible.
The announcement is important, and Logic-Sunrise has done well to have bet on this team. 2 big questions:
- Games like Gran Turismo 5 (requires firmware 3.50) work?
- This update is compatible with the X3max? Is it free?
We have that kind of information on LS in a few hours, but the feedback I have from them show a free and compatibility with X3max with an update, but I prefer to have confirmation. Until we have more information, a video of the feat. Knowing the team, comments calling into doubt the hack team by 3.50 X3 will be punishable by banishment to LS.
