Discussion in 'PS3 - Modding & Hacking' started by sniper78, Jun 4, 2007.
I'm down with trying anything. I have a walmart warranty where I get a new ps3 if anything happens.
Try it then. Can you give me the link to where you saw that please?
It's at ps3news site.
Now, what could this lead to? Custom firmwares?
Sounds like rubbish i think.
I want to see the link...Show me please?
EDIT: Just figured I could PM it to you since I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link here.
Hows this looking guys any news on it working at all? Could 1.8 turn to be the homebrew for the PS3 then? Anyone forward a link also, thanks
Update #3: More NiCE news- PS3 Devs read on: Tonight at PS3Dev.PS3News.com resident Dev'er HanSooloo has shared with everyone the PS3 Firmware Table of Contents Revealed along with the Module Names and Their Address and Lengths! To non-Devs this may seem confusing, but rest assured it's BOTH a PS3 scene first and definite PROGRESS!! Cheers to HanSooloo along with all of the PS3 Devs who assisted him with this excellent accomplishment!!
Update #2: H3R3T1C has now started an Unpacked PS3UPDAT.PUP findings thread for those interested in sharing their findings while examining the PS3 v1.80 Debug Firmware.
Update: The PS3 v1.80 Debug Firmware is now publically released and available from our PS3 Downloads section. For those curious, no, it will NOT currently install on a retail PS3 console. Resident PS3 Dev'er StrontiumDog has confirmed this for us by attempting it on his own retail PS3- and although it will cause no damage, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)
On a brighter note, work is already underway examining the PS3 Debug v1.80 Firmware, and thus far subdub has shared with us on iRC EFnet #PS3News the following from the packed file: "I see first difference @ 0x17... 14 EA for normal Firmware and 14 EB for Debug." Only time will tell where this leads... but here is to hoping for some more $CE leaks soon, and a PS3 $DK would be handy too. Enjoy all!
As hinted last night in my Blog, several PS3 Debug (also referred to as TEST) Firmware versions have recently been leaked, and tonight we are kicking things off in sharing the latest PS3 v1.80 Debug Firmware with the PS3 community courtesy of a very NiCE but anonymous source! For those wondering, PS3 Debug Firmware allows game testers/reviewers to run both unsigned code and PS3 game images burned to Blu-ray Disc from a PS3 Debug/TEST machine.
Please NOTE that at this time it is still being examined by resident PS3 Dev'ers, and end-users should NOT (under any circumstances) attempt to install it in a retail PS3 console or you will likely end up with a $600 paperweight!
More details to come shortly along with the release... stay tuned folks!
Maybe im stuck on stupid today but how is a debug firmware going to help?
this sounds great, maybe our waiting time will soon be over this is the begging of something big i feel
Dont get your hopes up. Sony would never be this careless
It seems like this 1.80 debug can run on dev ps3s as stated. If we can get a hold of one of these dev ps3s and copy the hardware a chip or some mod could be created.
I'm hoping for something more similar to PSP...custom firmware...
Update #4: OK, it's getting a bit lengthy here but we'll see where this leads before starting a new Site News post. Today at PS3Dev.PS3News.com Dev'er HanSooloo has shared a preliminary PS3 NAND Analysis along with the following: Samsung NAND Access, NAND Bandmap, and flashmgr-0.2.0.tar.gz for those interested.
In other PS3 news today, we are pleased to have run across an anonymous PS3 $DK Docs leak- VERY useful for Dev'ers wishing to learn from! Needless to say, we can't post the files here as they belong to $CE, however, we can share with the public a PS3 $DK Doc FileList for those curious of the leak's contents.
Hmm they're really working hard over there. They may be on to something.
"Update #5: This will be the last update for this post... later today expect a new one with some VERY cool news. Until then, if you have some free time you can check out the ongoing Possible MPEG4 Exploit? thread by H3R3T1C and share your results with others there."
OMGOMGOMG what could it be?!
well too late for me i just sold my ps3...
I think you should calm down. It could be nothing.
Whats the background on these people that are doing the tests that have got hold of this apperantly 'leaked' FW?
Are they a previously trusted source?
if so what have they done in the past?
My money is on this turning out to be nothing at all.
I will eat my words if im wrong, but i doubt it.
You sure are a pessimist bopran man :/
And I'm rather calm, I just wanted to make a cheerleader kinda joke with that OMGOMG, thought it would be funny.
Anyway, I like some excitement even if it isn't for real, like in...ummm...video games! We haven't had this kind of excitement since that fake Ferrox May11 announcement. PS3 will be hacked sooner or later anyway. Hypehypehypehype OMGOMGOMG IcantwaitIcantwaitIcantwait!
Ya there are so many things happening now that one of these discoveries is going to lead to a hack soon hopefully. I just hope it's soon because the 360 is so simple to hack now that it would be worth it going with that. But I haven't given up on my ps3, just a little board with it.
I agree that there will be a hack eventually. Also i look forward to the day.
As for Xbox 360, I hope your joking. Yes easy to hack, but so badly made that they die before 6 months of use. Ive been through 3 now and have moved swiftly on to PS3, and I must say so far im loving the PS3 more than the shoddy 360 in every way.
