111w ago - Following up on the recent Guide to Compile PSN NPDRM Games for PS3 Custom Firmware, today Gitbrew has released NoPDRM v1, which allows users to easily re-enable Sony PlayStation Network (PSN) content on their PlayStation 3 consoles alongside some RSX progress detailed below.
To quote: With the release of mallory's NPDRM-enabled ps3tools, it was remarkably simple to re-enable your legally purchased PSN titles.
Overview of steps: unself2 -> make_self_npdrm -> pkg.py
Tools you need:
ps3tools modified for NPDRM use (included)
make_self_npdrm from geohot's tools (included in psl1ght)
pkg.py (included in psl1ght)
To use the NPDRM ps3tools you need:
Your console's IDPS
Your console's exdata folder (/dev_hdd0/home/xxxxxxxx/exdata/)
Your PSN titles (/dev_hdd0/game/NP*)
The get_idps.pkg file can be installed on your PS3. When run, it creates a file called 'idps' on the root of an attached USB drive. Copy this idps file to your PS3KEYS folder. Make sure that your PS3KEYS folder has the appldr NPDRM keys. One pair was included in mallory's ps3tools release and more can be found at Keys Appldr. FTP your PS3's exdata folder to your PS3KEYS folder (e.g. ~/.ps3/exdata).
Now the NPDRM modified ps3tools have all the keys they need to decrypt PSN games.
Copy a PSN title to your computer. Run nopdrm.py with the PSN game's folder and the output package names as arguments.
Example: nopdrm.py NPUB90126 mgsdb.pkg
The resulting package can be installed on your PS3 and will play without any PSN licensing restrictions.
NOTE: PSN titles that use encrypted data files (*.EDAT) will likely not work. nopdrm.py outputs a warning if it detects a EDAT file in the PSN title. Work on decrypting EDAT files is underway.
NOTE: All pkgs were tested with OtherOS++ MFW. Results are not guaranteed on other firmwares.
Please report any bugs to #otheros on gitbrew's IRC.
Progess on the RSX
We have made some amazing breakthroughs and has completely skipped over the Lv1. Glevand has managed to run direct commands to the FIFO without lv1 calls. As well as running multiple pipelines from the gpu. This is amazing progress towards making a fully functional rsx driver. ps3fb source will be available shortly for compiling.

All they say about Gran Turismo 6 is hype and bullcrap. The gameplay is the same as the last, its missing a lot of in car views instead its just black the same as GT2, it does have a tiny graphical difference that it looks a tiny bit better than GT5 but not by much.
There is still no car damage and AI are still bullies and you get punished for what they do and they get no punishment at all. IMO its still a really crap game and not worth it. If you want a really good racing game get Grid or Grid 2 as they kick GT6's butt every time.
If your a GT fan then you'll get it and probably love it but there is really no difference between GT5 and GT6 except maybe a few more cars. BUT as those newer cars still dont have in car view and cant be customized like the other cars its still a crap game.
If I had to give it a score it'll be 2/10 as for a game that comes out after the PS4 is released its really showing the devs are at least 5 years behind and releasing an unfinished game. I like incar views when I'm driving and this doesn't have it. Even NFS Rivals is better and thats doesn't even have incar view.
Compare this game to Forze 5 and you will think this is a beta or unfinished game its that bad.
From what i know this was the only way the DLC would work , i know that i have searched this DLC a lot of time. Sorry StanSmith. I can give you the links for EU version to , but the same thing must be done :
1. It is necessary to have your GT5 updated to the latest update
2. After install the PKG as any other pkg [make sure you have the GT5 updated] , copy rap files to exdata folder and use reactpsn to activate DLC.
3. You may be required to be signed in to PSN as well as GT5 started.
4. Now at the main menu after signing in to PSN, go to the dlc symbol
5. Install all the vehicles, tracks etc.
6. The vehicles will be located at the car delivery, just get all the vehicles there
Enjoy the new vehicles, tracks and other stuf
