I heard similiar questions today, so i try to use KaKaRoTo words to explain how hard is this. Sony using ECDSA algorithm to security purposes on Playstation 3, if we break this algorithm we get needed access to almost everything. But is not easy, or maybe even impossible.. Read how it work: Source: http://kakaroto.homelinux.net/ WHAT!? Ok here is understandable version why we have jailbreak for older consoles. But not for newest ones: In December 2010, a group calling itself fail0verflow announced recovery of the ECDSA private key used by Sony to sign software for the PlayStation 3 game console. However, this attack only worked because Sony did not properly implement the algorithm, because k was static instead of random. This makes d_A solvable and the entire algorithm useless. It was just Sony mistake that they repair in new consoles/firmwares. Above you can read what kind of thing hackers fighting to break new consoles. Don't look like put PUP to usb and install CFW, huh?
