PSGroove: New Jailbreak for PS3 – Homebrew coming soon?

By Alan Ng - Sep 1, 2010

We have some breaking news to deliver to PS3 owners now, as we can confirm that a second PS3 jailbreak method has been released for the Sony PS3. It is called ‘PSGroove’ and is the first open source jailbreak solution for the console.

As reported from VG247, PSGroove has been created by well know developer Mathieulh and a group of other devs. PSGroove is available in downloadable form, then the files downloaded can be transferred over to a USB dev key – which are not too hard to get hold off – and much cheaper as well than the PSJailbreak USB device.

VG247 haven’t put up the download links for obvious reasons, but you can read a full report on PSGroove, over at Exophase here. If developers can come up with some useful and LEGAL third-party homebrew applications, then I don’t see the harm in this.

What are your initial thoughts on this? Do you think this is getting out of hand, or do you support the whole PS3 jailbreaking idea?
