PlayStation 3 3.56 has been cracked and jailbroken in less than a day by infamous Wii hacker Youness Alaoui (aka KaKaRoToKS). The 3.56 signing keys are already out so don’t get surprised if you get an updated custom firmware in a day or so that spoofs 3.56 and re-enables PSN access.
Earlier, Sony sued Geohot, Fail0ver and many other researchers for jailbreaking into PlayStation 3 security code. And when Sony was granted TRO against Geohot, the entire PS3 community was in dismay. Soon after, Sony pushed an important system update 3.56 into PS3 in order to block homebrew and piracy and to keep hackers off PlayStation Network.
System software 3.56 is a “minor update that adds a security patch” and introduces a new encryption key which kills all existing homebrew functionality. If you have PS3 homebrew or have jailbroken your PS3 3.55 console, it is highly recommended that you do not update your PS3 console to firmware 3.56 at all. If you upgrade to 3.56, there’s no easy way back down.
