Possible RFOM exploit to run unsigned code on PS3 FW 2.10
Team ICE and StreetskaterFU have recently announced on the PS3HAX forums that they’ve found a method to execute unsigned code on PlayStation 3s. According to the hackers, there is a Resistance: Fall of Man exploit in firmware 2.10 which allows them to do this.
If this proves to be true, then we might be seeing PS3 homebrew soon. If you want to see a video of this exploit in action, be sure to check out the full article.
Team ICE and StreetskaterFU have announced that that they’ve found a method to execute unsigned code on retail Sony PlayStation 3 units running firmware 2.10. If this proves to be true, then we might be seeing PS3 homebrew soon.
While the current method is still in its early phase, the hackers (and many members of the community) feel that this is very promising. What makes this hack work is a Resistance: Fall of Manexploit which allows the hackers to run SELF files in the PS3s operating system.
So far, they’ve already coded a program which allows them to convert ELF files into SELF files. All they need to do is clean up the code to get screen output. Once they do so, they plan to create a “Hello World” program on the PS3.
We’re gonna keep a close eye on this in the days to come. While waiting for any breakthroughs, you might want to check out the video of the exploit in action and see the hack for yourself.
Here’s a special shoutout to Spiker for the hot tip!
