Jailbreak on 3.73?!?
Well it seems Kakarotoks did something like that... At least it's a start..
"Updated my ps3 to 3.73... oh and THEN I jailbroke it! (kind of) :D"
"1 - I won't share it until it's ready to use (still a bit complicated + some missing components), 2 - don't update if you're on 3.55."
"The "kind of" meant I need to fix NPDRM algo for it to run. And no, this will not allow backup managers. And no, it's not a CFW"
Hope he will be successful.
source on his twitter https://twitter.com/#!/kakarotoks
first post updated a bit
1- source added
2-corrected successfull to successful. lol
really? Well at least he can play his games on there

If I'm wrong, then strike me down, but please, let's not blow this out of proportion for now.
Though, if there's any chance kakarotoks or someone familiar with any finer details of his method is reading this thread, can this method potentially be applied across the board, on all systems in the same manner, or is it a specific algo for each system? Because I've seen a bit of waxing and waning on the methods of approach from different sources, and many may require a bit of knowledge and... let's say capacity... that a lot of the target audience, simply put, do not possess.
So I guess my real overall question is, barring a major leak or fantastic oversight, who truly believes they hold the "keys to the castle" as it were? I'm seeing great progress and fantastic steps in the right direction, but whatever happened to SPU reverse engineering? Could have been quite fruitful.
Very interesting info about his work!
[07:28:39] <KaKaRoTo> heri, docpaul showtime would work fine
[07:28:58] <sandungas> kakaroTo, this means new tcl patches for mfw and some changes to manage 3.73 ?
[07:29:09] <ddoo> the man is here,thanks for your "no leaks" policy KaKaRoTo
[07:29:11] <MARAA> KaKaRoTo! awesome stuff!
[07:29:12] <docpaul> KaKaRoTo: +1! this is all i wantâ€¦ showtime and the ability to play original games
[07:29:17] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, and no I didn't fix the npdrm algo, that's what I'm missing (hence the "kind of") but I'm not working on that, that's someone else's job
[07:29:30] <ddoo> nice :D
[07:30:05] <middleman> gonna debut it at ccc kakaroto or before?
[07:30:06] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, and even if npdrm signing worked.. how do you install your pkg on an OFW 3.73 ? :p
[07:30:18] <docpaul> KaKaRoTo: any sense what the method of the tb dongle obfuscation is?
[07:30:22] <heri> so KaKaRoTo, once the NPDRM algo is fixed, a release will come?
[07:30:28] <ddoo> i have an old theory KaKaRoTo
[07:30:42] <ddoo> use a game update as a trojan horse
[07:30:55] <ddoo> install it from 3.55
[07:31:01] <ddoo> upgrade,then run it
[07:31:14] <KaKaRoTo> heri, another missing bit, but once that's fixed, yes
[07:31:18] <ddoo> using the original gamedisk
[07:31:23] <KaKaRoTo> but I'll probably be off country for the next 2 weeks
[07:31:30] <KaKaRoTo> so all work will have to be paused :p
[07:31:52] <heri> oh, fair enough. we can all wait 2 weeks hey :P we have waited months anyways :)
[07:32:06] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, that might work.. you could also just install your pkg on 3.55 then upgrade...
[07:32:20] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, upgrading doesn't delete any of your packages :p
[07:32:37] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, issue is, you're lost if you didn't do it before upgrading
[07:32:53] <ddoo> but they fail because the npdrm algo is spoted by the checks in 3.56+
[07:32:58] <ddoo> anyway
[07:33:04] <ddoo> you know your work
[07:33:05] <ddoo> :D
[07:33:13] <KaKaRoTo> heri, also note, I "announced" it because I was excited to see it work as expected
[07:33:22] <KaKaRoTo> doesn't mean it's ready for release
[07:33:31] <KaKaRoTo> ddoo, exactly
[07:33:36] <heri> yeh thats what we were saying just before you came :)
[07:33:38] <middleman> thank you for the hard work kakaroto, look forward to trying it out:)
[07:33:43] <KaKaRoTo> so you need : 1 - npdrm algo fixed, 2 - a way to install stuff
[07:33:53] <heri> you only announce when you are confident it works :)
[07:33:58] <KaKaRoTo> 1 has been done by someone else (don't know if he'll share it), and 2.. well, I just did it :p
[07:34:37] <KaKaRoTo> heri, well, I was testing on 3.60 and it worked, but yes, I did upgrade to 3.73 to test that it still works just to make sure I don't tweet any false hopes
[07:34:46] <middleman> but you cant run what you installed until 1 is fixed correct?
[07:34:59] <KaKaRoTo> middleman, exactly
[07:36:17] <middleman> interesting
[07:36:19] <docpaul> nice, thx KaKaRoTo
[07:36:40] * KaKaRoTo needs to hide now if he wants to get any work done
[07:36:42] <KaKaRoTo> ttyl
may be it's an XMAS GIFT "29 days to go" don't get your hopes high though
Now that'd be funny, the 3.73 key turns out to be "Patience", you'd be the PS3 Nostradamus! :lol:
