Submission + - PS3 root key found (

An anonymous reader writes: The PlayStation 3 "root key" used for code signing has been found by GeoHot. This enables running homebrew without the need for psjailbreak-style USB-devices, and also provides hope for those at firmware version 3.55 that currently cannot be downgraded. The key also cannot be changed without hardware modifications. Oops.
