PS3 DEV Chat Forum opened; PS3 HDD Contents unveiled!
Update #3:Happy Easter!!! On this Easter Sunday HanSooloo has updated once again to v0.2.2 for PS3 DEVs. Changes include:
> Removed the GNU MP library, as it seemed to be provide more data lengths and flexibility than what this program needed. Its performance impacts were not known either.
> All BIG variables (_b) have been converted to uint64_t types. I would like to thank r3pek on PS3News.com for pointing out the obvious about this change.
> HDD addresses are now output in capital hexadecimal notation.
Update #2:HanSooloo has updated to v0.2.1 (now capable of supporting large address spaces) in his ongoing PS3 HDD Contents thread. Also, courier has shared some pics of the PAL PS3 motherboard as part of the work he's doing in the ongoing PS3 Firmware thread. This is a hint of what's to come from him perhaps...
After several resident PS3 DEVs got together with CJPC on iRC EFNet #PS3News recently, it was decided that a seperate DEV-only (for posting) board was necessary to collaborate on while allowing non-DEVs to view their progress. With that being said, we have now opened our PlayStation 3 DEV Chat Forum (accessible directly: PS3DEV.PS3News.com)... and to kick things off Hansooloo has shared a preliminary PS3 HDD Contents analysis post there!
If you are a DEV'er/coder and wish to have POST/REPLY permission there as well, simply demonstrate your abilities in our other PS3 Forum sections and it won't be long before CJPC will issue you an INVITE to post on the PlayStation 3 DEV Chat Forum.
