Just over a week ago PlayStation 3 hacker Mathieulh confirmed finding a PS3 3.56 Exploit, and today drizzthacks tweeted part of an IRC chat log where Mathieulh stated the following regarding PS3 Firmware 3.60 running homebrew code, as follows:
"[03:15] while you are insulting me like morons, I already have code running on 3.60, and I am laughing, and guess what ? I am happy I stopped sharing, you can hate me for it, I don't care."
On IRC, Mathieulh also posted a video of his own but then privatized it currently rendering it unavailable:
mastag23: just fyi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZfES...layer_embedded mastag23: that is fake mastag23: it would look legit if he hadn't of ran the debugging station launcher mastag23: You fail "Connected from 192.168.0.2 on port 1000" (port might be wrong pretty blurry. mastag23: This is a debug unit. That can't be done on a retail unit. Run the Debugging Station Launcher on a retail and the debug tools won't connect to it, yours obviously does :D mastag23: debugging station launcher cant be connected to on retail mastag23: if he hadnt of posted debugging station launcher mastag23: he would be believable
The video shows a package installing and the new online save function, which was added in PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60.
Time will tell, but my feeling from the videos and the tweeting... this may be the real deal.
