Open Source PS3 Jailbreak Released That Doesn't Permit Piracy

by Developer.com Staff

Sony doesn't like PS3 Jailbreak because it allows people to run pirated games, but PSGroove is open source and it does not permit running illegally downloaded games.

PSGroove is open source code that gives users the ability to run unsigned, but not pirated games and software written by indie developers on their PS3.

PSGroove is the open source implementation of the PS3 Jailbreak exploit, but to use it you will need a microcontroller board called Teensy++.

"The software then only loads unsigned, but not pirated software," CrunchGear's Nicholas Deleon wrote. "So, while you'll be able to run, say, a PS3 port of mplayer or Fun Original Game, you can't use it to hop on Black Cats and download the latest version of Madden."
