358w ago - Hermes, the Spanish homebrew creator behind the likes of PS2Reality Mediaplayer and Guitarfun for the PS2 has released a new loader for PS3 that will allow you to load PS2 homebrew. There are certain tools needed such as firmware greater than v1.90, Swap Magic and some BIOS files. However, for the moment it seems to execute only Guitarfan and Mediplayer PS2 homebrew, but it's good start all the same.

Download: PSXLoader

Tools Needed Fw > 1.90 + Swap Magic > 3.6 & some files from PS2 Bios.

the ps2 will recognize an external drive technically thats a larger size with usb advance. What we need is someone to get this exploit to work with the usb advance/hd extreme disk and it communicates with the drive someway on its own.

what is happening is that we can now boot unsigned ELFs but we are not in kernel mode and i don't think with this type of "hack" we will have kernel acess.

But Maybe, with what has been found we can somehow find a way to gain acess to kernel mode, only time (and hackers) will tell.

isn't this exactly what we needed? so isn't it possible to exploit the PS3 in someway now?

No, it is impossible the only way we could have a Backup on the hard drive is with a NTFS Formated HD, but the ps3 only Recognises FAT32 (in XMB) wich is limited to 4GiB and 2Gib under linux without LFS.

So either we have a major breakthrough and find a real exploit, so that we can modify the system in a way to be able to modify wich filesystem the machine reads, or we could come with some kind of firmware hack simmilar to the XBOX360.

it Would be cool wouldn it. But i dont see it happen because the ps3 can't "understand" the format type that hd loader does to the Hard disk, so i think it won't happen.
I know, but not using the internal hard drive.

IF the loader load it wil read the external drive and reconized the drive.
