154w ago - It's nice to see Spanish developer JaicraB still plugging away on hacking Sony's PS3 entertainment system, and today he has detailed how to perform his RAM dump method on a 60GB PlayStation 3 console.
Using PS3 Pulse Generator V2, it allows PS3 developers to keep the RAM dumped after rebooting the PlayStation 3 meaning no data loss is present.
• I advise that from the point of welding the transistor is as short as possible. Transistor to the PC does not matter. Mine is 1 Metro.
• If the power transistor exceeds soldier to the yellow light will result, blockades, general instability...
• On the Version 2 software to use, fits any CPU.

Also - unlike in PC - you can't simply "take the RAM out" of PS3 and plug it into another one and even if you could - lats say by putting both in the sockets first - the encryption keys would not match or something else would prohibit you to easilly access the RAM data in another PS3 etc etc. Not mentioning different type / speed of RAM in PS3 and I can go on like this for a while
That method requires physical RAM swaping... even if you could get the ram out without thawing it what would you connect it into to read it... (onboard chipsets in consoles arnt like computers everything is soldered onto the mainboard) Ultimately we need to find some way to directly dump RAM, a modchip preferably...
