How cool would it be to jailbreak an iPhone using an Android phone? Alright, I’m already getting off topic, but you can jailbreak your PlayStation 3 using an Android phone. This method follows the news that one hacker was able to find a way to jailbreak (or – with more contextual relevance – mod) your console with nothing but a USB drive. He was selling that solution for $150, but this one is completely free if you already own an Android-based handset.
You can click here to find instructions on how to do this, and a list of compatible phones can be found here. Not all phones are supported, but they have a list of devices which they’re targeting and it’s possible more will be added over time. I’ll be trying this out with my T-Mobile G1 as support for the EVO 4G I own isn’t yet finished. After you’ve done it, it’s up to you to find out what you can do with a newly-jailbroken PS3. Google‘s calling your name.
