    2.8 demo code is NOT 3000-3500 or 8000-9000

    anyone found it?
    Thanks for helping out... and +Rep for your effort. Apparently someone else tried 8000-9730 and it wasn't in that range either.

    I have a theory to the answer of these demo codes, as well as firmware versions.

    When the PS3 checks for updates (ps3-updatelist.txt) - It has 2 software version areas.

    A hex version: example 00000ee8 (version 2.60 FW)
    and a plain-text version (which doesn't matter what the number says): 2.60 or 2.80, whatever you have.

    If we can compile a list of these HEX version strings - We may have some kind of key to unlock different firmwares.

    Is there a URL for DEBUG consoles? I'd love to get some from that.
    I've seen the demo update list, just a bunch of countries with different update images.

    the HEX is what the PS3 checks for. the Number can be anything.
    I put DEBUGLOL in place of the numbers, and the 2.60 HEX was left alone, the PS3 didn't complain.

    We need to get our hands on these HEX codes so we can generate a way to install different KINDS of firmware on our PS3.
    Like TEST FW on RETAIL / etc.

    This is all I can answer from the above, but sadly there is not. We too wish there was a Debug Updater link like the Retail and Demo has, as then getting the Debug Firmware updates would be a lot easier than waiting for leaks.

    I'm taking 3500-4000. Call out what you plan on trying so we don't overlap work.

    I'm calling it quits for tonight. I'll do some more tomorrow. I got to 3630.

    CODE RANGES ALREADY TRIED:
    3000-3630
    8000-9730

    7000-8000 is being tried right now on another forum.

    Nothing between 7000-7500. Add that to the list.
