    PSFreedom: PS3 Jailbreak for Droid is here! (Other Android phones too, OP updated)

    Some of you may have heard the buzz about the PS3 getting a jailbreak through USB. It's real, and the code is currently being ported to Android platforms.

    Wiki tracker: Device compatibility list - PSFreedom Wiki

    Nexus One is already out, more to come... waiting for Droid 1 myself.

    FYI... avoid talking about the "backup manager" aspect of this. That's the shady side of town... the jailbreak itself is of course perfectly legal. :)

    Update: Now available, link/guide here: Motorola Droid - PSFreedom Wiki
    Track progress/availability on other Android devices: Device compatibility list - PSFreedom Wiki

    Note: although the wiki states you cannot charge your phone while this kernel is installed, charging has been just fine for me!

    I recommend buying the Websharing app from the market... this gives you an alternative to USBMass file access, which you will lose with this kernel installed. With this app you can read/write your SD card through WiFi and your web browser. Now I don't feel the need to switch back and forth between kernels. I just leave this exploit on my phone.

    I thought I'd be seeing a PSP port of this code first... but now it's looking like I may see it on Droid first... time will tell.

    And for anyone with a PS3 that may have been living under a rock until now... make sure you are on the current system software version, 3.41. If you want to try this, you won't want to install the next update (whenever that will be) that will undoubtedly disable this exploit.

    Just a warning to everyone... if you do install this, whether you install "game backups" or not, there is a definite risk of being banned from PSN in the future, similar to what MS has done with the Xbox 360. Personally, I have two PS3s, so I'm willing to guinea-pig one of them with this, although I will avoid signing into my PSN account with it.

    I'm waiting for either the Droid 1 or PSP port for this exploit.

    Just keep checking this wiki, that's all I'm doing: Device compatibility list - PSFreedom Wiki

    Firmware 3.42 just dropped today. DO NOT install it, it is confirmed to patch the exploit.

    You can still go on PSN under 3.41 with a proxy server. Apps like "PS3ProxyServer" will do the trick. Essentially, these trick the PS3 into thinking the firmware it has is current by intercepting the check request and sending back a custom response.
