iPhone Used to Jailbreak A PlayStation 3

A hacker going by the name of NTAuthority has managed to jailbreak a PlayStation 3 using an iPhone running OpeniBoot, aka Android for iPhone. I love how creative people get in the name of hacking!

Just like when you jailbreak your iPhone, jailbreaking your PS3 doesn’t come without any risk as Sony might ban you from the PlayStation Network. Oh well…

Redmond Pie has more info about the whole process:

From what we’ve confirmed, the hack works on three iOS devices only for now, namely: iPod touch 1G, iPhone EDGE (the first iPhone) and the recently-outdated iPhone 3G. The device must, of course, be jailbroken.

Prerequisites for the hack includes: VMware Player, Ubuntu 10.04, OpeniBoot, WinSCP and OpenSSH. You can catch the guide posted here at PS3Mod.

If you try this hack, I would really like to hear from you about it. Let us know by leaving a comment below.
