Crushable Garbage Can Concept: Why Not?


PS3 mods are coming from everywhere now. The latest method is similar to the earlier USB exploit. Instead it uses certain handsets to do the dirty deed. The list of supported devices is rather short, but it couldn’t be easier if you have the right handset.

PS3Hax.net links to the compatability list and lays out the instructions.

  1. Download the package, extract it.
  2. Extract N1-CM6-PSFreedom.tar.gz and copy the contents to your SD card.
  3. Copy PS3-signed.zip and PS3-No-More-signed.zip to your SD card.
  4. Reboot into the recovery console.
  5. Install/flash PS3-signed.zip.
  6. Reboot your phone.
  7. Use ConnectBot or any terminal app and type:
    • cd /mnt/sdcard
    • su
    • insmod psfreedom.ko
  8. Kill the power to your PS3, switch on the back (PS3 Fat) or unplug from the wall (PS3 Slim), and connect your phone via USB.
  9. Re-enable power and press the PS3 power button followed by the eject button in quick succession.
  10. Your PS3 is now hacked! You’ll see “Install Package Files” under GAME on the XMB.

To return your phone to normal just boot back to recovery and flash PS3-No-More-signed.zip. It’s that easy. Video coming soon.
