Last week Sony promised to release patches for security exploits via network update. But before the patches were ready, the PS3 firmware 3.55 jailbreak broke loose on the weekend. Anyone who knows a wee-bit about updating the game console using update files can perform this jailbreak.

This jailbreak contains a PUP file that is like a system update and installs like a regular system update using 3.55 firmware update file. I would advise that if you are going to use his expliot that you know a bit about programming and GNU/Linux based OS.

I personally haven’t tried the exploit, I am sticking with my 3.41 jailbroken unit. If you do try it please post here what you find.
