Geohot enables “Other OS” feature on Firmware 3.21 | PS3Blog.net

It looks like the infamous Geohot has enabled the “Other OS” feature in the recently released Firmware 3.21.

This can be installed without having to open up your PS3, just by restoring a custom generated PUP file, but only from 3.15 or previous. It’s possible this CFW will also work on the slim to actually *enable* OtherOS; I’ll know when my infectus gets here.

No release date yet, use the proxy hack to play online with 3.15

Note to the people who removed OtherOS, you are potentially turning 100000+ legit users into “hackers.” There was a huge(20x) traffic spike to this blog after the announcement of 3.21. If I had ads on this site I guess I’d be thanking you.

Your thoughts? Violent reactions? Praises?

  • I just hope it gets plugged soon rather then later

  • I’m against the hacking of Ps3 but I also don’t like Sony’s reaction. They chose the easy way out, crippling lots of Ps3’s along the process. Looks like their measures are nullified.

    They should have just fixed the issue by plugging the hole, instead they took the easy way out and they pissed him off.

    Now it seems like people even have the Other OS feature on the Slim.

  • Sony Fail? Hes not going to stop hacking the ps3 until he has cracked it open like the 360 i really don’t see sony stoping him.

  • So they took it out so that he can re-enable it, great job SONY. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

  • Eddie

    in the end…still accomplishes nothing. So now you have to work harder to get another OS that is good for next to nothing.

    and Luke…if they plugged the hole…they would have to plug another…then another…then another..then another. Why not get rid of a near useless object to not have to shell out tons of cash to prevent some d-bag from trying to hack your console with an option you offer?

    I think its all getting blown out of proportion and people are missing the bigger picture that a safe PS3 means a better future for PS3 enthusiasts.

  • Eddie, if can enable it with a hack, Sony is punishing the legitimate users who are running the official firmware, , it’s going to be like DRM wars on the PC, where legitimate users are getting worse treatment.

  • if he can..
