New PS3 Blu-ray 304R Drive Confirmed as Working on a PC

Sponsored Links
227w ago - Update: Team Jungle and C4E have now joined Team Hades to assist with their ongoing research to hack the PS3 entertainment system!

A few weeks back we first reported news of a PS3 Blu-ray 302R drive being successfully connected to a PC by DemonHades and examined by JaicraB, and today Team Hades reports that Calimba has managed to do it with a newer PlayStation 3 Blu-ray 304R drive as well.

To quote from their PlayStation 3 hacking progress update, roughly translated from Spanish to English:

"Well, I just woke up with this news, our mail Calimba has managed to connect the 304R model is one of the newest, and also ensures better to connect the PS3 Slim.

The way forward has been entirely empirical, so we do not try it because it does not show any information on the Internet.

Moreover, the good news is we already know to extract and decrypt the FW. I think that people who criticized us so much, it's time to bend the ears, and finally admit what this team and this website are doing for the scene...

Thanks to the people to trust us and all members of the TEAM HADES, without them this would not be possible."

Finally, props to humi for passing along the news!

i'm happy that deamonhades dont give up the work on the bd drive, but i'm getting more and more thinking about if it will lead to a solution.

the jungleteam tried there best when the console wasnt jailbreak, iim pretty sure that they will find a solution with demonhades and his team. but if this will help forever =/ i pray for it, but i donit know if it will be real.

i can only say "i wish the bd drive solution will be real".

This is making me wonder, is there any way to override the firmware? What I mean by that is, is there a way to put it to some default state in which it'd pair itself with whichever motherboard or regardless of what's done with the firmware that wouldn't work?

Has there been any new news on this yet, or is the only thing newsworthy in the ps3 scene the psjailbreak?

[QUOTE=Boo1974;297975]I hope that this leads to the desired result. It would be nice if an eventual BD firmware solution could be handled completely in a linux distro. No good for slim owners, but for us
