Hello hypervisor, I'm geohot

I have read/write access to the entire system memory, and HV level access to the processor. In other words, I have hacked the PS3. The rest is just software. And reversing. I have a lot of reversing ahead of me, as I now have dumps of LV0 and LV1. I've also dumped the NAND without removing it or a modchip.

3 years, 2 months, 11 days...thats a pretty secure system

Took 5 weeks, 3 in Boston, 2 here, very simple hardware cleverly applied, and some not so simple software.

Shout out to George Kharrat from iPhoneMod Brasil for giving me this PS3 a year and a half ago to hack. Sorry it took me so long :)

As far as the exploit goes, I'm not revealing it yet. The theory isn't really patchable, but they can make implementations much harder. Also, for obvious reasons I can't post dumps. I'm hoping to find the decryption keys and post them, but they may be embedded in hardware. Hopefully keys are setup like the iPhone's KBAG.

A lot more to come...follow @geohot on twitter

WEll done man. Glad for you, My heart skipped a beat when I read it. good JOB! I don't really care about exploit at this point, just glad you did it.

David Zech said...

Did u hack the latest one?

John said...

Wow, where did you learn all the needed knowledges to hack it ?

George Hotz said...

My brain

Joost said...

well done... amazing.

Manel said...

You are my fucking hero!

Alan said...

Well done mate, i look forward to this

h_faka said...

Which FW version geohot? Also: about freakin time someone someone did sth about the ps3!! kudos!

taranfx said...

Now we are talking!
awaiting next thing

teusjuh said...

Well Done Geohot

But i got one question

does this mean an modchip will come for the ps3 for play unsigned code??

protonux said...

GG geohot \o/ after allt his time, you make it!

ryan45419 said...

someone should make a movie about you.

treminaor said...

As was already asked, is this using the latest firmware? And GREAT. FUCKING. JOB. I salute you.

austin said...

Thank YOU!!!!I thought it would have taken atleast a year for you to be able to read/write on it,but you proved me wrong d(^^,)b

C said...

As geohot knows, i'm sure, probably best to reveal as little info as possible. Reduces the chances that Sony can patch whatever exploit it is.

Mathieulh said...

@geohot there wont be any keys in lv1, the keys NEVER Leave the isolated spu. (even the useless ones)

Soussi said...

Congrats man keep up the superb work ^^

George Hotz said...

I know, I'm not looking for keys in the dump directly. But I now have all the routines that set up and talk to the SPU

protonux said...

@geohot: i think, me, and others devs, are ready to help you if you need coders to make some softwares things :)

InfinitiProject said...

I really hope this discovery works with all firmware released so far. I've been trying to find something to do with my 3.15 80GB MGS but the most so far is running Linux >_<

Congrats on bringing the shields down!

Temi said...

Btw what programming languages do you know and use? looking to learn and started with C++

protonux said...

@temi: i use C/C++ but i'm learning asm by cracking way :) , so, my mother language is the php ;)

in libs, i use a 3d game engine and QT
in asm, i already found and edit/learn the crack, i'ts a simple offset patcher :)

Temi said...

Mathieulh I thought you said it was a dead end... -_-

protonux said...

learning electronic and computer science never end ;)

Franz said...

Wow! That's just awesome! I'm glad you did it! Kudos! I know it's early yet, but in the near future will we at least be able to run homebrews? Congratulations again!

grimlord said...

If this is true, then you are my hero. I mean, every PS3 owner's hero. The PS3 to get unlocked... that would be amazing.

I don't care for how long will it take for you to release it, I am just glad hearing that somebody finally did it. Keep up the amazing work, and bring joy to the world.

ari said...

Congratz George.

pitkane said...

Amazing job George!

tictok said...

kudos dude - your brain works in mysterious ways!

Guto said...

Amazing job George!

TJ said...

Now you just have to cross your fingers and hope the loaded binaries are sig-checked previous to being rebuilt in RAM, or is this ROM instructions?

Modder said...

Finally play all vids without some sort of other app.

Anyone started on XMBC already :D

Alin Amasan said...

BRAVO. Well done.

tictok said...

Hey george, any chance we see another photo of the slain beasts innards?

uf6667 said...

hi geohot, can you please contact me?
on efnet, either "uberfry" or in #team-captagon

not looking for details on exploit, nor if I can play my copied games on it (I don't have a ps3 yet)
really just curious what hv looks like

regards, uberfry

p.s.: sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language

Daniel said...

Way to go man! :D

Charybdis said...

@geohot You'd better be getting ready to hack the tablet! :)

S1m0n3 said...

congratulations, George! ;)

seil said...

good job kid, good job, i ve been watchin you for a couple of weeks and i m glad that you made someone else's shut the mouth up.

may the force be with you.

Raze88 said...

Well done, man. I salute to both your talent and determination!

fredbob3 said...

thank you so much man! you rule! I am willing to test for you if you feel the need! I have my psp hacked and it is awesome. As asked before, is it on the latest firmware? I just want to be a part of it somehow so plz, contact me. fredbob3@gmail.com thank you.

zeronormality said...

Well done sir, keep up the great work :D

Eddie said...

Is there anything you can't do? Well done Geo!

grave said...

this is just a sight for sore eyes :) ... man ... i cant wait to turn my ps3 into the ULTIMATE MEdia Center machine ... no more stupid transcoding .. or if i need to transcode .. i'll let the ps3 do it.. MWUAHAHAHA 1080p MKV's FTW....*goes out to buy 640GB ps3 hard drive)

Guerrilla said...

dont take sony's buyout!
pleaSE!!!!!!!

LD Fanclub said...

Geohot, do u have plan to write about hacking to the book?

Dobby said...

Kudos to you sir on all your hard work.
Be safe.

Modder said...

"Can I Kiss Your Ass?"
"Can You Give Me Some More Info?"
"Can I Test For You?"

I'm still missing a couple :D

Dont even trust your mother Geohot...well as a figure of speaking.

Chrsitain said...

If this will ever be released finally we'll hopefully be able to dump our own games for backup or pirated purposes LOL

rpm said...

you did it!!! I knew it!!!!! You are the best!!!!

Nection said...

Yo estuve aquí.. XD.. es un día histórico para la scene.. :)

Modder said...

and i can use my ps3 again (broken bluray drive).

Btw,

congrats geohot

~Jason~ said...

congratulation =)

Robson said...

Kudos to ya fella... great work indeed.

Jimmy said...

and what comes next...?
great job george ;)

Gavin said...

will it work on the Slim?

Kohr said...

What firmware was running on the vulnerable system?

Please share the exploit ASAP, so homebrew can get started quickly.

Xbox Media Center ported to the PS3.... Hmm, nice!

Dusty said...

Awesome job Geohotz! Great news!

Alin Amasan said...

Just a side note: The Forum threads are on fire! :P Sony's ninjas must be scrambling now. The shields are down. 2010 the year of the homebrew!?

xiaNaix said...

Congrats from everyone at PSX-SCENE.COM

Seth Hikari said...

Pro Skills. Just only hope my Trophies are still worth something after this goes public lol

Rule Rocker said...

Ok I see two things here

"The rest is just software."
&
"...and some not so simple software"

That will be the harder part!
Getting info from the hardware might be not so hard but find some "error" in the software is.

Good Luck

itwong said...

you are the man, geohot. A real legendary hacker for both ps3 and iphone scene. Hope to hear more from you soon. Good luck and Best wishes.

Richard simons said...

I don´t find the words, YOU ARE MY GOD!!!!!!!

Hugo said...

Well done!! I love you <3333333333!

Daniele said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GEOHOT! GEOHOT! GEOHOT!

Diego said...

Congratulations Hotz!!

forgotten_boy said...

Wow!!!
Congratz man!!
And THANK YOU so much for this.
Could you try someyhing for psp v.3000?
Thankz and congratz again man! \o

Konstantinos Anastasiou said...

You are the BEST man!!!!

Many thanx for your work from a snowy Greece

Chad said...

Nice!

ducky said...

hell yeah!
nice work George.

Solfegieto said...

I CAME

peter said...

Thanks champ.

This is what I needed.

Covarr said...

What are the implications behind this? Could it lead to PS3-native homebrew (similar to Wii homebrew channel)? RSX access in Linux? Piracy? (probably not until people can afford Blu-ray players)

George Hotz said...

Now I know what other people see when they look at ARM assembly :)

Paaaascon said...

I'm really glad for this, happy, for someone from brazil(i'm from Brazil hehe) that had a participation in this historical fact, even it wasn't so directly, but we participated.guy, we here in brazil love u, u can have certain when u come to Brazil, u won't wish to come back from wherever u r. u r the person to meery my sister.guy u rocks, thanks from every iphone, itouchs and now PS3 user not only in brazil but in all over the world

Daniel said...

Awesome Awesome Awesome can't wait to see homebrew!!!!!!!!!!!! Great Work!!!!!!!

DanXbix

George said...

Great man!!!
Congratulations and keep up the amazing work, always!

Luis said...

MAN U ARE GOD! =) ass kissing apart keep in mind this: using the PS3 to do everything else besides playing games...gaining "full access" to use ps3 brute force with Linux or other OS. Making it the 1st open source super computer for everyone!

Rudger said...

I'm a man who normally doesnt say a word about things like that, because so many guys did it before I did it ... but this time it's special because you did a great job and you are a really cool and smart guy !!!! Thank you Geoheot !!!!

ALEN said...

ashdeidme"!"e no words.... HOLY CRAP!!!!!
As an electronic engineer... I'm... oh hell, my... you're from what there is not... o hell... I'm gonna faint!

openid said...

you should just post it on tpb or something :p

jumbo_2010 said...

Thank you man...another great job well done.

Mike said...

I cant wait for this exploit to be released! Congrats for finding an exploit into the fort knox of consoles lol. Limitless linux FTW!!

skf said...

good job!

:)

casaermitage said...

well done man !!!!

Mopeto said...

I don´t know why people are asking about what version was the ps3, because, direct hardware access has nothing to do with the software installed, right?

Mike said...

Could you hint to what firmware you are running on when you did this exploit? Or does it even matter since your using linux to do the exploit?
If thats the case then that means people with a slim model would be S.O.L.

دوراندیشان said...

My May Favorite man. FUCK ME! YEAAAA

Julian said...

Kudos from Colombia.... I used your first hack for the iPhone 1.1.3 and now the PS3.... You are a genius.....
Congratulations.

Alin Amasan said...

@Geohot
The PS3 have their security key inside the chip itself. All the checking and decrypting of the firmware occurs on inside one of the spus on boot up. During this isolation mode, nothing can view this process.

crkpb said...

I'd like to suggest not releasing this. I think it's cool that you've proven it can be done, but it looks like most people are looking to use this for piracy, which is not cool. It's been fun reading about it though.

nracing said...

good job, congrats george.

TJ said...

@Alin Amasan: Awww

The ROM inside is the papa that tucks that code in there during initialization..it wont be very happy to say the least that Geohot is digging around in their closet space.

You know computer technology this level? You go to skule or you book learn cutting edge style?

Julian said...

It's like the iPhone, a lot of features are available only by using software from the comunity, more uses for the Bluetooth, add support for ntfs file systems, there's piracy over the iPhone but it's not making a big impact on the AppStore community... Having an opened platform it's going to give even more to the PS3....

cold said...

Good news, however the negative side is SOny learned they could make a system which couldnt be backed for 3 years, by which time the system is almost past its cycle (in terms of hw and gfx) and the next system will have to come out in 2-3 yrs. But at least people can enjoy it now fully for that time.

· Joe said...

Ojala sea cierto, gracias ^^

John said...

Great work geohot. Let me know if you need anything.

-Rhcp

quentin said...

great job Geohot !!!!!!
What is next ?

Alin Amasan said...

@TJ Lets just say I know enough to know that I don't know.
@GEOHOT. The post prior to this from me will be your last fight. As im afraid that all you can do is make a dump of the memory. :P

nracing said...

yea same question whats next???

Ps3newsisajoke said...

Shows what a complete joke the ps3news (the pathetic losers) teams "devs" are. Whats the bet they start claiming whatever you've found as one of the exploits they supposidly already know about saying that they didnt want it to get patched (which is pretty much inevitable so why would it matter if they released it now or later?)

*waits for ps3news to try to claim everything ps3 related is because of them, like they tried to steal basically everything from the ps2dev scene and rebrand it as their own*

Konner said...

About time someone has hacked the ps3. 4 years its been out and it was the only console that was never hacked. You are a smart man.

nracing said...

dosnt matter what ps3news does. george is the one with the skillz

6p0120a7e354c5970b said...

@crkpb

Doesn't quite look like that at all. Besides the guys can blatantly come on here saying its good cause they can now pirate I think a lot of ppl want to be able to do things with the ps3 they can't currently do. If a lot comes from this I certainly will be happy putting the console in my living room and buying a new TV for it. It would just be too cool to have all that function.

There are also the folks who have lost the bluray part of their ps3 and want to play games on it again

TC said...

Por favor respondeme quiero que me saques caca, eyaculame dentro. quiero chupartelo y que me destroces el ano.

InfinitiProject said...

This is definitely news to PS3 owners, but some immediately shouting "ISO Loaders plz" kills the comment section.

Hacking isn't about playing pirated games, dipsticks! It's about pushing the limit of the hardware beyond what its purpose is via homebrew/unsigned code.

If something does come out of this, I REALLY hope it won't be another PSP Scene, which is filled with spoiled kids demanding everything.

This is awesome.

\/\The Conscience of a Hacker/\/

by

+++The Mentor+++

Written on January 8, 1986
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager
Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...
Damn kids. They're all alike.

But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain,
ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what
made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?
I am a hacker, enter my world...
Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of
the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...
Damn underachiever. They're all alike.

I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain
for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms.
Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..."
Damn kid. Probably copied it. They're all alike.

I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is
cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I
screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me...
Or feels threatened by me...
Or thinks I'm a smart ass...
Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here...
Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.

And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through
the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is
sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is
found.
"This is it... this is where I belong..."
I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to
them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...
Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike...

You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at
school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip
through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or
ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us will-
ing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the
beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying
for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and
you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek
after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color,
without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.
You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us
and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is
that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like.
My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me
for.

I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual,
but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.

wow! thats all i can say :D

It's going to take alot more than most posters think to get what most want from this. Hold your breath and beg but be warned life is short. Good job and keep up the "good" work.

Amazing !!! First my iPhone and now my PS3 !!! Congratulations !!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! ALL TRASH TALKERS SHOULD B VERY QUIET NOW CONGRATS AND THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME FOR ALLOWING US USE THE TECHNOLOGY WE PURCHASE THE WAY WE WANT TO USE IT. MAJOR PROPS

I just got a Ps3 SLim 120 GB for christmas ... its on 3.15 ... Will it work on it ?

Cosmin said...

Nice job George!
but sadly, this has been only the beginning...

Alin Amasan said...

If he has full control over the CPU and all of ram, memory ranges as well, including I/O hardware etc. That would mean post firmware lockout.... awaiting.

SoOmSoOm said...

Wow man! first you hack my itouch and now my PS3...
You are awsome man!!

Good work! and after i will hack the PS3, can i play games from burned CDs?

moddrfokkr said...

respect!!

Ferdinando said...

oh man!
you just did it! congratulation from Italy!
YOU are the man!

Gam said...

For those of you who have not noticed, the PS3 XMB comes with built in ISO Loader.

Mike said...

Lmao i cant believe how many idiots are on here that dont understand/appreciate what geohot has done. I highly doubt,actually im positive he wont do anything related to booting backups.
This will probably lead to homebrew and an unrestricted linux o/s with 3d support. NO piracy!!

Ruben said...

Great!
This method is for all ps3 models?
Its indiferent the firmware?
I want more news :D
Congratulations!!!

Spidy said...

Congratz for your work.

But it's a wierd feeling, in one hand i'm happy for the exploit, and in the other hand i'm just sad cause reading all these post i'm sure that your finding will only lead to the death of ps3. If people don't buy the games you can be sure that we will never get some really cool game who cost so many money to be done.


I'm just hopping for some old emulation et a really cool media center


But what the hell, congratz again Geohot, you'r one pretty smart guy !

adrian said...

Man so exited finally someone has the brains to crack sony in the face. Great job...

Raffo said...

Hello geohot, i'm hypervisor.

let's hope this is enough to reverse tons of code.

lekayserdu13 said...

Yes but Sony is the better

Robertov1980 said...

It's funny how all the devs and the site owner of ps3news is doubting him and it seems like there trying to always push him in a different direction saying his methods won't work but there in the same single file line asking for what he has it almost seems like they don't want the ps3 hacked I smell something real fishy with ps3news don't you ever wonder how they always seem to get there hands on anything Sony related with no problem at all hardware or software and there always saying they have someone on the inside if I do remember correctly wasn't there something during the ps2 days about the owner of the site being paidoff by Sony I think they report ever exploit to Sony and Sony keeps them happy with what ever they want it's my thought take it for what you will geo keep everthing away from those turds or you can expect bad things to happen to your exploit also it's funny how there scrambling around for this and that I don't trust them!

Cold said...

@geo take the payoff from Sony instead. A very good job in hacking the system.

Euskokali said...

OF COURSE it was a matter of time for you m8!! Keep it up and thanx for all your hard work on iphone and ps3. You're the man! Greets from greece.

And one more thing geo thanks for blackra1n it works perfectly on my iPod touch 64gb it's awesome and your one of the greatest mind our generation I hope you have long and wealthy life the fruits of this world is ripe for the picking let's get them people

ruud said...

Very nice job :D had my doubts but you did it!

ONE request, if you will release it can you blockout the use of copied/pirared games? Since it will destroy psn and ps3.

I think more people are with me, but I gues you will not care about that much.
Just hope you read this.

Greets from iPodTouchFans!!

WADder channels said...

Woah, great job Geohot. :)

My sister just listened to me last week and did jailbreak her Ipod Touch. Also thanks for that.

My friend and I will be very happy to see some hacks for PS3 coming up.

Hopefully you spread some stuff on the Internets, or keep it yourself and make money with Modchips. :)

I guess this month and next month PS3 sales will go UP. haha

Thanks for your great work, Adr990.

SO, now when we can have the software to can use pirated software?
If you have hacked the PS3 now you must give us a way to use your great work.
I wait for a software, a tool, a chip....but you must give us something, also a proof of your work. Because words are words...

Pablopreda said...

He doesnt have to give us nothing, the guy do it for himself, if he want to share it with the rest of us, it would be grate, obviously.
But he is not going to tell anyone what`s his working method just because you want some proof of it.

Congratulation Man! You are a Powerful kido!

well done man .
your work is so good . i from iran and me and my firend is happy for you .

Check this out man, i find it interesting. Even though you have lvl0 and lvl1 access to the hypervisor, it's still not possible to compromise the isolated SPU. This is where all the cryptography takes place I assume.

Seriously, Geohot, you would be better of without tweeting this blog. The iPhone scene is full of zombies, and now they're all here!

Am I the only one here not giving a shit about the commercial games?

I am dying to see Linux with full access to the graphics card!

Would probably try to get AmigaOS, MacOS Classic and perhaps tiger PPC... to work

After all there is only one OS; AmigaOS, the rest are just [l]imitations.

good job geohot. PS3Dev newbies tried for 3 years to hack it with most advanced TEST/DEBUG consoles and failed miserably. You did it in 5 weeks, respect. Don't share anything with those lamers or they will do another "yea we knew this but we didn't want to share info with public", like each time when new thing is discovered.

Saca ya el jailbreak de los touch 3g y dejate de pollas y mierdas de la PS3. Que te quieres mas a ti mismo que tu propia madre.

To all the paranoid tards who think this will kill the ps3/psn and those who think piracy will kill the ps3/psn... get a brain. The ps3 isn't exactly the poster child for sales performance (both hardware and games) when it comes to consoles, yet its the most secure. At the very least sony will sell more hardware and with more hardware I suspect they will sell more games. Not everyone who wants this thing hacked is a pirate with enough money to buy games. Some will buy a ps3 because of the new capabilities and end up buying games or movies for it, some will buy the ps3 because all of a sudden they can get games to play on it.

I thoroughly hate ppl who cry Armageddon without thinking. The same goes to paranoid devs who have been treating the 360 preferentially for years even though it was hacked and now will be thinking a hacked ps3 is bad news. Just think for a minute before you run your mouth.

Consumers with sense don't like closed systems period.

I would advise you stay away from the ps3news devs as well. Their problem might be they are more into gathering information and were afraid of going hands-on with hardware but they might be fakes.

Demonhades and SKFU + any others (most not english speaking I think) would be best to get in touch with. They've actually done something even if minor

Pablo said...

Incredible!!!! Amazing!!!! Perfect job!!
Thanks from Spain!

Any chance of accesing one more SPE ?

What about accesing two more SPEs ?

Fernando said...

ps3news = lossers whom sold his "used soul" to $ony devils.

NEVER trust on ANYTHING coming from ps3news, EVER ! You have been warned.

About ps3 pir8s games... FOOL, we can play pir8 games since PaRaDoX exploit, and that was YEARS ago. Pir8 will NEVER break the industry, this kind of EXCUSE is pure lie. Or you think we're still fools to believe on any shit and means to brainwashing us? It's too late, our time has come!

jpoplover93 said...

man you're just.. incredible!
thanks for your HARD work.
I really can't tell you how much I appreciate this.
You're a genius! peace from italy

Kiriller said...

Thanks GeoHot, substantial donations are coming to you, dont even think of sharing the info or taking any bribe from sony, people will offer far much greater amount and satisfaction then sony ever will :)

Keep it on the downlow, so it dosnt get patched or f*cked with, we dont want to end up at ground 0 once again after so many years.

Cheers to you buddy.

Jesús said...

Congratulations, still a lot of work to do...
Sony was prepared for this the SPE isolation mode was designed for situations like this but YOU HAVE ACHIVED WHAT NOTHIG ELSE COULD!!!!!

Can´t wait for knowing more!!

Pls, DON´T SHARE THIS WITH PS3NEWS or Sony Will patch this in the very first FW release!!! You know what i mean.
