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

Sponsored Links
228w 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!

Hmm, sure I remember C4E saying he had a look at the PS3 BD firmware and it was encrypted with the console specific key so it was a no go...

I think it's a secret project no one will share pinout! Couze they don't want that it will be fixed by Sony, as fast as project isn't fully done!

Can someone upload the connection points/pinouts and I'll try and piece together a small tutorial.

30-40 wires is a piece of cake when you're used to soldering tsop48/56 by hand (yes I know there are easier ways)

I have plenty of experience so this shouldn't be a problem.

Just an idea...

I could build a connection board that sits between the BDROM and the PS3 board utilising 2 flex cables. This also allows me to switch the connection to IDE for PC connection (Blaster 360 for xbox anyone?)

Anyone willing to share some info?

To connect your BD drive from FAT console you have to wire for about 30-40 wires!

It's so painful and its not actually easy to wire, couze you need to wire them , to the Flex cable!

So if i helped + Rep
