    Hidden System Menu Discovered for Sony's PS3, PSP and PS Vita

    Today has announced the discovery of a hidden System Menu which is present on Sony's PS3, PSP and PS Vita consoles.

    Below are the details via the PlayStation 3 Dev Wiki with some additional pictures HERE, as follows:

    More System Information

    How to get this
    • Go to Settings > System > System Information
    • Press simultaneously R1 + L1 + DPad Left + Square for a few seconds
    • Release those buttons then immediately press the start button (and keep it hold)

    First Section

    First part is about sections on other chips:
    Information / Example / Notes
    -/Model Type/System type 	- / CEL / DEX-ww 	Target ID: ???(CEL = ??, CEK = ??, RU3 = ??), System Type (CEX,DEX,SHOP)

    Syscon 	0C16.0001000100030003@SC 	Syscon Firmware + Syscon Patches in the format: qqqq.wwwwxxxxyyyyzzzz where qqqq is the firmware base, and wwwwxxxxyyyyzzz is an installed patch with the name SYS_CON_FIRMWARE_wwxxyyzz.pkg

    Wifi 	2.9.3.p0@WLAN 	Wifi Firmware
    MultiCardReader 	1.08@MCC 	MultiCardReader Firmware (NA = not present in slim models)
    Second Section

    Second part of the screen follows structure from Index.dat (if you use spoofer, the data will show the spoofed strings) and explains about revisioning of dev_flash files:

    Just an interesting find really - makes you wonder what else may be hidden that has yet to be uncovered. Any hidden menus are always cool - be it consoles, phones or even tv's!

    A normal user won't go to that screen in case of he could'nt do anything with this information. You even have read about that it comes from Playstation 3 Dev Wiki where Dev stands for Developer ?

    Well I played with it bit, the only thing I found was that... "if you guys want it to stay static without holding down start."

    1) Just hold start... press up, down, left, right, on D-pad.. like going up/down on list.
    2) then press and hold PS button as if to turn off system/controller.
    3) Let go of start.
    4) press PS button again to exit.

    and that's it... you have it static on the screen
    and of course O will exit.

    Holding start down for about 10 seconds before releasing also makes it static.

    What's the main purpose of this menu; is it just to obtain info on some of the specs?

    Like I said it's not a "menu" do I need to put down the definition of a menu?

    All that shows is a "list" of random numbers and letters and what looks like half asked email addresses.
