Sony's valiant 3.56 firmware security update thwarted - gets crac...

[RELATED_ARTICLE]The PS3 security lasted nearly half a decade before it was cracked and jailbroken for what was called the 'final' time. Sony valiantly but rather foolhardily tried to caulk the sinking ship with the 3.56 security firmware update, which was cracked and jailbroken less than a day later by Youness Alaoui of Wii hacking fame.

The latest custom firmware will apparently become available soon, and will also re-enable PSN access, managing to bypass the new random encryption key that the 3.56 security update heroically introduced.

Those already on custom 3.55 firmware might want to wait a bit before they try the 3.56 update and crack, just in case 3.57 is around the corner.
