Sony had taken a few steps to prevent the jailbreak of the PlayStation 3, and has associated the action as a form of copyright infringement. In eastern European countries, no action has ever been taken to condemn such cases.
Sony won't be happy to hear that. The company said in its court filing that by offering the jailbreak to others, Hotz has \"trafficked in circumvention technology, products, services, methods, codes, software tools, [and] devices.\" The company believes the jailbreak will \"enable use or playing of illegal copies of PlayStation 3 video games on the PS3 system.\"
\"Actually, no,\" Hotz said in response to a question asking if his jailbreak allows users to run pirated games on the console. \"The way piracy was previously done doesn't work in my jailbreak. And I made a specific effort while I was working on this to try and enable home-brewing without enabling things I don't support, like piracy.\"
Hotz then turned his attention to Sony's claim that his jailbreak violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The far-reaching act currently allows mobile phone owners to jailbreak their devices without fear of recourse. However, it doesn't specifically mention other devices.
Sony evidently fails to see the logic in Hotz's argument. The company asked the court to impound any circumvention technology Hotz and his team used to jailbreak the PlayStation 3. In addition, Sony has requested Hotz take down mention of the jailbreak from the Internet and not help anyone to further hack the device going forward.
\"On the face of Sony's Motion, a [restraining order] serves no purpose in the present matter. The code necessary to 'jail break' the Sony Playstation computer is on the Internet. That cat is not going back in the bag,\" writes attorney Stewart Kellar. \"Indeed, Sony's own pleadings admit that the code necessary to jailbreak the Sony Playstation computer is on the Internet. Sony speaks of 'closing the door,' but the simple fact is that there is no door to close. The code sought to be restrained will always be a Google search away.\" The argument is that there is no reason for a restraining order of any kind, as any damage that could happen to Sony has already occurred.
Jailbreaking a PlayStation 3 opens up new uses and possibilities for your gaming console. Home-brew games and the ability to load an alternate operating system are two reasons why PS3 owners opts to jailbreak their system. Jailbreaking does not come without a cost though.

PS Groove is a jailbreaking tool that you can use to reprogram a USB device to act as a PS3 Mod chip. You can use also use software stored on a USB drive to permanently jailbreak your PS3 without a hardware modification.

If you're on firmware version 3.55 or below, then you can use Geohot's \"Custom Firmware\" (His Exploit) Which was released, and legal to use, or a variety of custom firmwares that other people made using his exploit. If you are on firmware 3.55, you can jailbreak your system by using This Guide . If you are on 3.50 or lower firmware, update to 3.55 Firmware then use the guide I showed earlier. If your PS3 is on 3.56 (Or Newer) firmware, it is not possible to jailbreak your PS3. Jailbroken PS3s cannot connect to PSN, but if you decide that you want to un-jailbreak it, you can use the built in \"System Update\" feature, which will update to the newest version, remove the jailbreak, and allow you to play online. However, once you update, there is no way to go back, and jailbreak again.
In simple terms, jailbreaking refers to reverse-engineering closed hardware, and is often used to unlock debug menus and allow the use of unauthorized software. Fellow modder Lance MacDonald showcased this new jailbreak in action by installing famous lost game P.T on his P55.
However, this will be viewed as a first step for fellow modders and hackers, who will likely attempt to build on the entry point. While jailbreaking isn't necessarily illegal in and of itself, doing so can get your PlayStation Network account banned, voids any warranty and could result in you rendering your entire console unusuable.
In truth, if you want to jailbreak a PlayStation 3, it's a lot less risky than it was to put custom firmware on your PSP. There's currently no real risk for your PlayStation 3 (save for the applications you download), and now that the U.S. Supreme Court considers iPhone jailbreaking 'fair use', legal consequences are not very likely. However, piracy is always a crime. Play it safe and disconnect your PlayStation 3 from the internet while using PSGroove to squelch the chances of getting banned.
