[Answered] PS3 homebrew working with faulty/unoriginal Bluray drives?
So just wondering if anyone has made any efforts or progress in getting homebrew running on ps3's with faulty or unoriginal bluray controller boards. I mean if we have master keys and ability to enter factory service mode then shouldn't it be fairly easy to jump the gap to flashing or pairing the boards? or even doing away with the calls to bluray all together?
it just really sucks that jb has been out for several months now and here i sit with a busted controller board so i'm not able to help test or dev any homebrew. if anyone thinks they have something and need a console to test it on just pm me with the files and i will be more than happy to load them up (will need compiled for ti-84+ or ti-83 calculators).
thanks to anyone who may be able to help..
yes homebrew does work on consoles that have bad bluray drives.
to make possible you must remove bluray drive from the ps3, then open the drive and remove all the ribbon cables that connect to the controller board http://www.ps3news.com/ps3-hacks-jai...ed-and-mapped/
once removed plug bluray drive back up and you should be able to play homebrew
make sure its bd emulation for backed up games.
