PS3 Jailbreak PSFreedom Now Available For HTC Hero

Looks like the PSFreedom exploit is going to be ported to all Android phones out there, with PSFreedom for Nexus One and HTC Desire already available. All you PS3 users,be aware of the 3.42 firmware update, which has been released by Sony to fix the exploit. Don’t update to this firmware if you want to keep your jailbreak.

Coming to the latest addition of PSFreedom supported mobile phones, here is how you can jailbreak your PlayStation (PS 3) with a rooted HTC Hero on stock kernel. The steps and the downloads are given by PSFreedom Wiki.


Below are links to zImage and psfreedom.ko (patched for bdvd).



Note Android Froyo 2.2 Rom users

You may loose touch screen support so you must try a 2.1 rom. This is not an issue if you use the “Recovery ROM” method.

Note for all users

You will loose Wifi and USB support while the new kernel is running.


For CDMA Users: install this first

ENG-SPL for the CDMA Hero

1. Copy psfreedom.ko to your sdcard (From the above downloads)

2. Install a terminal emulator from the market

3 Fastboot the zImage (fastboot boot /path/to/zimage/zImage)

4 Once it has booted open the terminal emulator

5 type su

6 type cd /sdcard

7 type insmod psfreedom.ko

8 plug in to ps3 and enjoy

(Pull the rest of the instructions from Using PSFreedom)

Recovery rom

Recovery rom with the above kernel and module.

GSM – recovery-RA-hero-v1.7.0.1-psfreedom-1.0-bdvd.img (confirmed working!) Backup Mirror

Flash this to your recovery partition. (or fastboot it)

How to here:

When done, just boot into recovery everytime you need to jailbreak your PS3.

NOTE: This disables ADB and USB Mass-storage on the recovery rom.

    I keep getting:

    insmod: init_module ‘psfreedom.ko’ failed (Exec format error)

    I guess it’s got something to do with the processor architecture? Are you sure that this is for the Hero?
