GeoHot uses his hack to “customize” PS3 theme


Just a little update on GeoHot and his quest to conquer the PS3. The latest update shows a very promising development into manipulating the console where the esteemed iPhone hacker posts his new tweak to the PS3 theme.

Well hello to you too, hacked PS3 theme! Unfortunately, that’s all GeoHot posted on his blog today – no details, no background, no explanation – just a pictured titled “Custom Themes?” (yes, with a question mark). What appears to be a modified text string or something doesn’t convince the skeptics, however.

Clearly though, this is a progress report. Think what you will

    From what I seen, the PS3 seems extremely complicated to hack….

    I thought he gave up after his last post that he had read/write access because he didn’t have the time.

    Well this is major hacking for the ps3 because the things like a 10,000$ safe its hard to crack unlike the xbox 360 which is basically a hackers best friend

    This is inevitable. Horrible, dreadful, but inevitable.

    I’m of two minds on this….but this kid is brilliant. And if he’s able to do remotely what he’s done on the Iphone on the Ps3….I think it could be good for the consumer in the end….God knows the Iphone would be USELESS without jailbreak.

    How will this be good for the consumer in the end? Just curious…
