PS3 3.55 CFW = FAIL?

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

PS3

Well It’s been a Nice few Weeks from the time the Master key of the PS3 got handed over to us BUT has it done any good?

Well Yes and NO!!!

Many 3.50 games are now being patched to play on 3.41 PS3s and this is a good thing BUT custom firmware has came out and it’s not doing all that good =(

-The First CFW came and Bricked peoples PS3’s (Some can’t even be fixed)
-The next CFW came and worked on SOME… PS3’s And had system calls (but the wrong ones)
-The 3rd CFW came and worked on ALL PS3’s And had the RIGHT system calls
BUT not all was happy in the kingdom of CFW land =)… PS3’s where freezing on XMB and many games that worked before was not working anymore, And from reports in Comments PSN games you BUY do not work.

Now i am all for CFW, I love my 5.00m33-6 on PSP BUT if i had to pick
-Stable PS3 with device to play PS3 games
or
-unstable PS3 (risk bricking) many games not working And able to get on PSN (FOR NOW!!!)

Then i think i’ll stay with my jailbreak device and 3.41 As the CFW’s coming out right now are just not worth it.

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

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”
to
“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?
-No HTMI?
-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

ps3_exploit.zip

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

PS3
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

Geohot:
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.

SONY FTW!!!!!?

Friday, October 26th, 2007

More and More people are getting mad over Sony’s firmware updates,
sony is doing a good job in keeping hackers out, BUT is not doing so good on keep the people happy.

Sony is staying away from the 2.00 update trying to give us crap on a stick with the New 1.94 update, for now all i know is it gives you rumble in the new Ratchet and Clank Game But i am sure it plugs up the holes in the last firmware that we could not find Makeing it More harder to hack.
Will all this dicking around kill sony ?? or will holding back and playing it safe save sony ?? only time will tell but for now it does not look good for sony.

Pachter: 40GB PS3 could Combat Halo 3

Friday, September 14th, 2007

ps3Halo 3 sales will top 3 million in 12 days, driving Xbox 360 sales, says Michael Pachter, who believes a PS2 price cut and new 40GB PS3 could be announced by Sony at TGS to combat the Halo 3 juggernaut.

ImageIn his latest research note to investors, Wedbush Morgan’s Pachter says, “The top September release is expected to be Microsoft’s Halo 3 (360), which we expect to sell over 3 million U.S. units in its first 12 days.

“We expect the game to be a driver of console sales, and believe that Microsoft’s unit sales for the 360 could exceed 400,000 in September, the highest figure for a non-holiday month since launch.”

While Pachter said that “industry software sales growth comparisons will remain difficult in September”, he expects a modest rise in hardware sales due to price cuts made to Sony’s PS3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in July and August respectively.

He also notes that should whisperings about a PlayStation 2 price cut to $99 and the release of a new $399 40GB PS3 turn out to be more than just rumors, the Tokyo Game Show would be an ideal venue for Sony to make such announcements.

“We think that both of these ideas have merit, and note that Sony Computer Entertainment president Kaz Hirai is the keynote speaker at next week’s Tokyo Game Show. If the rumors are true, we cannot think of a better forum for making such an announcement, given that the event is less than a week before the launch of archrival Microsoft’s Halo 3.

“Should Sony choose to cut prices next week, we think that hardware sales will trend much higher for the balance of the year, and we are prepared to revise our 18% sales growth estimate upward.”

Pachter also reaffirmed his past forecast that the 80GB PS3 (without a game) is in line for a price cut to $499 prior to Thanksgiving.
