Following the PS Classic Teardown, it's been only a few days since the official PlayStation Classic Launch and already Sony's mini PlayStation Classic console has been hacked with PS Classic hackers demonstrating PlayStation game swapping videos of the feat! :love: :bananaman6:

According to a Twitter reply from yifanlu when asked if Sony botched up PS Classic security signing with public keys, he stated "No rather they used GnuPG to sign/encrypt and they left in their private keys." :LOL:

Below is the latest progress / videos from bakueikozo, nvsofts, puhitaku, yifanlu and others including anima22 via emuonpsp demonstrating a PlayStation Classic root shell through the UART serial connection with a start.sh script and replacing / swapping out stock games such as Battle Arena Toshinden with their own including a Crash Bandicoot (Prototype) to get them running on the PlayStation Classic! (y)

EMMC dump of PlayStation Classic with SD card reader-[Extra edition] dump PlayStation Classic EMMC-Zopfcode
Finally connected
PlayStation Classic, I tried to put the shell to rewrite eMMC
I rewrite the root of the/etc/passwd to laugh and the timing is too same www after, because it is a style that does not fear God, the w that is mounted and rewritten in the D0 connection without taking backup of the dump, Since I put it in the console from here dd if =/ dev/mmcblk0 in the image acquisition
I actually made the image file of the game and tried to load it. I don't see the place where I'm stabbing, but I read it from USB memory. It's completely manual now, but it can be properly incorporated if you do well. PlayStation Classic hack done. Play so far. Chingin, get back to work...

PlayStation Classic hack complete. I can play any games from my shelf. Load game image file on USB storage.
gg Sony please learn what a private key is kthxbye
Apparently Sony used a public key to sign software on the PlayStation Classic. People are basically just laughing at it now and loading images to test on the system.
PlayStation Classic root shell through UART serial start.sh script:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# THIS IS NOT FOR REGULAR USERS!!!
# You need to solder to the UART port and short the two pads under the PCB near the charger.
# Baud rate: 921600

red_led () {
  SLEEP=1
  LOOP=1
  if [ x"$1" != x ]; then LOOP=$1; fi
  if [ x"$2" != x ]; then SLEEP=$2; fi
  for i in `seq 1 $LOOP`; do
    echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/red/brightness
    sleep $SLEEP
    echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/red/brightness
    sleep $SLEEP
  done
}

if [ ! -f "/tmp/ran" ]; then
  touch /tmp/ran

  #mount -o remount,rw /
  dmesg -n 1
  ps -aux > /dev/ttyS0 2>&1
  systemctl stop getty.target
  systemctl stop console-getty.service
  systemctl stop [email protected]
  killall agetty
  /sbin/agetty -a root -8 -L ttyS0 921600 xterm

  red_led "6" "0.3"
fi

sleep 60
No rather they used GnuPG to sign/encrypt and they left in their private keys.
Oh, wow. That's even worse.

Spyro on the Playstation Classic?? by DaveeFTW via DEFAULTDNB
There is already a PS1 Classics Emulator Compatibility List started on the Wiki and for those who recall it, Sony's previous epic fail was in the incorrect implementation of the PS3 ECDSA which revealed the PlayStation 3 console's private cryptography key allowing scene developers to completely decrypt any firmware and modify it. :D

Here are some other PlayStation-related Tweets lighting up Twitter today, including what appears to be an MSXOrbis game .ROM browser and OpenGL for PS4: :fire:

Some also report using BleemSync can help get the most out of the PS Classic, to quote roughly translated:

BleemSync is an application to launch PlayStation Classic games from a USB storage device, which supports multi-disc games and creates everything needed to be loaded on PlayStation Classic.

:alert: Warning: BleemSync overwrites parts of the system files to allow safe changes, changes the user interface to display added games, and supports multi-disk games.

Already??!! LOL. XD talk about fast!

the annoying part though is that the internal memory is only 16GB, so you wont be able to store that many games on the PS classic like you were able to with the NES and SNES classics.
