PS3 100% HACKED? (New USB Modchip “psjailbreak” )

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Well as you can see is this video PS3 backups are running and 100% working, Even Online play is working.

The Only problem is…
1. the Price is WAY!! to high going at around 170$ (WOW!!!)
2. Sony MAY BE ABLE to patch it with a Firmware update
3. Fakes will start rolling in within a few Weeks (my guess would be to buy a Fake) lol as they will be CHEAP!
4. Not sure if you can Download PS3 games and copy to the HDD then play or not, From what i know you MUST have the real game and back it up first Then you can play without the DISC.
Guessing a lot of people will be renting more PS3 games “for Backup” lol

Prometheus Seplugin for 5.00m33-6?

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010


Well a new Seplugin has come out for all you people trying to play 6.20 games on your 5.00m33-6 CFW PSP.

After some test and messing around i never really got the Seplugin working all that good, Some 6.20 games worked where a lot did not, I find that patching them still works best And really patching only takes like 1-3mins, And that’s not half bad to have a fully working game =)

” IF.. you like to try the Seplugin go to this link and download it “

Prometheus Released: Play More 6.20 Required Games on Custom Firmware

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Introducing liquidzigong’s Prometheus — zzk will worship this — play 6.20 required games on custom firmware 5.00 M33 or 5.50 GEN. Once again it’s a process but you know that’ll be simplified sooner or later… Probably by Hercules or someone.

What you’ll need (download below):

* Prometheus
* UMD Dump PRX
* PRXDecrypter or ISO Tool

What to do:

1. Create an ISO of whatever 6.20-required game.
2. Open that ISO in WQSG_UMD (or UMDGEN, or even WinRar 🙂 )and browse to PSP_GAME/SYSDIR.
3. Extract EBOOT.BIN to a temporary folder.
4. Use PRXDecrypter (or ISO Tool) to decrypt the extracted EBOOT.BIN file and rename it to EBOOT.OLD.
5. Extract the Prometheus RAR archive so you have prometheus.prx and a new EBOOT.BIN.
6. In WQSG_UMD drag ‘n drop the EBOOT.OLD, EBOOT.BIN and prometheus.prx files back to PSP_GAME/SYSDIR. See above screenshot.
7. Copy the ISO to your memory stick and try it out.

Using UMD Dump PRX and ISO Tool you could probably skip a step or two. You know, there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

Also mentioned at the source is that KHBBS works using the above + this extra bit: (I haven’t confirmed it myself)

1. for KHBBS, you have to decrypt BBS1/2/3.DAT then put back to PSPGAME/USRDIR
2. for 5.00M33, you have to decrypt all PRX files (EBOOT.BIN?PSPGAME/USRDIR/MODULES/*.PRX) then repack the ISO
3. orevious modification on EBOOT.BIN/PRX files (like sceUtilitO”) are not required.


PRX Decrypter

Sony removes “Other OS” on the PS3

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

We heard talk about the Option for Other OS (Linux) being removed and only today we found that it is true, THIS IS NOT A APRILS FOOLS JOKE!!!!
Well as far as i know it’s not a April fools joke lol

Sony should change there saying from.
“It only does everything”
“It only does Somethings”

With are Other OS taken out all them people (EVEN ME) will no longer be-able to load and run Linux, And all them dreams of having a Fully working Linux is GONE =(

Sadly people think this is because of George Hotz some what hacking the PS3 by using the Other OS, But what they don’t understand is his hack would only work if you opened the PS3 and Make some risky soldering. i would say less then 1% of all PS3 users would try/do this and out of that 1% i would guess 50% of them would mess up and fry the PS3.
So is Sony going to far by just taking out the Other OS and not just updating it to make it unusable by the hack?
Lets see what all has been taken out of the PS3 over the years?
-2 USB ports. 4 if you talk about before them releasing it they told us it would have 7 USB ports lol
-All Card readers
-Playstation 1 and Playstation 2 reading.
And now Other OS (Linux)

The big question is “whats Next?”
-No more DVD reading?
-No wifi?
-No bluetooth?
-Only 1 USB port?
-Less powerful CPU?

I guess Only time will tell, As for me i SOLD my PS3 and now i think that was the right thing to do, Maybe PS4 will be better.

Why the PS3 will NEVER be fully Hacked?

Friday, March 12th, 2010

OPPS!! i guess i was wrong LOL, owell… i was hoping to be wrong anyways =)

So are you waiting for the PS3 to be-able to play backup games?

Well…. Stop waiting…. It’s never going to happen. Well at best it’s not going to happen any time soon Or even anytime in the next few years.

The Ps3 has 8 SPE’s (for people who don’t understand that)
It’s like having a Quad core CPU x2(times 2), Now the 8th SPE is disabled So we will just talk about 7 SPE’s =)

6 SPE’s are used for the PS3 (CPU power and GPU power) BUT the 7th SPE is for OS (the Dash board) and Block your backups from reading, SO first you’ll need to be able to Unlock the 6th SPE then recode it then even after all that’s said and done the BD-player it’s-self would need to be flashed with a CFW to play backups, Now… we could go with a ISO loader to by-pass the BD-player so that’s some good news.
And that’s before we get into the FW on the PS3 and it’s un-hackable ass lol

In short I am saying right now we just don’t have what it takes to Hack a Ps3 and even if it does get fully hacked some time in the next 3 years it’s most likely going to be some 1,000pin wire setup with 70% chance of bricking the PS3 or something dumb like that LOL (I am joking) But still it’s not going to be some easy, Install this and do that kind of hack and never will be.

So if your looking for a system that may never get Game hackers online then go for a PS3, As for Xbox live users well… you need to watch out for them Wall hackers and auto aimers LOL

(On a Side note)
seeing as the Ps3 will most likely never be hacked why does games still cost 60$ ?? i mean you would think if 360 games cost the same and 1,000s of people are downloading the games and not buying them then it’s understandable that they keep the cost high so they make their money back from people just downloading them, BUT with the PS3 it’s not hacked and there is no way to download the games and play them on the PS3 so…. why is the cost still so high? Maybe it’s because people downloading games does not affect Over all buying of games like they think it does =)

PS3 Hacked update.

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

OK so we all know the PS3 has been hacked and is being worked on But the exploit was not released…. TILL TODAY!!! lol ok so if you want to try it and maybe make some software to help the PS3 hacking then Download the file

From what i know is it’s both Hard mod and Softmod (FOR NOW) so unless you know what your doing “DO NOT TRY THIS!!!!!”

PS3 Hacked?…Maybe?

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

OK so i hear the PS3 has been Hacked, Not like… We have a loader for ISOs or anything like that yet BUT someone HAS gotten pasted the locks and in the system and HAS dumped it, all that’s left to be done is making the Software or Custom software like with the PSP.
I man from Ipod hacking has done it “So he says” lets just Hope it’s true

I have read/write access to the entire system memory, and HV level access to the processor. In other words, I have hacked the PS3. The rest is just software. And reversing. I have a lot of reversing ahead of me, as I now have dumps of LV0 and LV1. I’ve also dumped the NAND without removing it or a modchip.

What will come of this?
-PS3 backups running on the PS3 HDD?
-Emulators like N64 running at 100%?
-Linux or Windows running the FULL power of the PS3?
Who knows…. But it’s fun to think about it.
