117w ago - As a follow-up to the previous Project PNM news, here is another update from PlayStation 3 hacker No_One below.
To quote: Hi mates, I wanted to give you news concerning the PNM project. I really missed time. But I just finished what I call the "stand-alone mode". In this mode, we can do everything concerning the NOR FLASH mangement.
Here are the functions working now:
display memory CRC32
display memory details
PNM is now working with 2 NOR sockets and 1 "virtual" one which is the PS3 embedded memory. It means for example that now we can dump/update the PS3 NOR like any flasher, but also copy its content to another FLASH and so on...
Next step now consists in wiring the PNM board to the PS3. This is what I call the "PS3 mode". I will do it next week
I will of course give you details, some nice pictures and maybe a video. We are not so far to be capable to dual firmware the PS3 and do some nice progress in FLASH decrypting.
Have fun !
PS: For people asking why I simply didn't use a twice capacity NOR FLASH (32MBytes) instead of 2 NOR FLASH (16MBytes). This is simply because it is easy for SONY to disable the dual firmware feature using what we call the "Product ID". Original NOR has a unique product ID (16Mbytes). A simple check and you cannot anymore use PNM.

He may have been speaking of the news from the upcoming (not released yet) JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware which mentions users being able to access their own OpenPStore on PS3 CFW that will feature similar content to Sony's PSN.
If Sony's PlayStation Network was accessible again from Custom Firmware it would be major news all over and likely patched as was done several times in the past.
I've been in vacation for 3 weeks and I saw this post:
With this in mind, I've searched the news to see what allowed a PSN access but I didn't find it. Can someone bring me the post that permits this? And if I understand, we can now go and play online games with our CFW?
