Project: RichDevX PSGroove Payload for PS3 Service Mode


Sponsored Links
205w ago - Today French site PS3Gen.fr (linked above) reports news of a project RichDevX is working on where a PSGroove payload is utilized for examining PS3 Service Mode.

To quote, roughly translated: "RichDevX tells us about his progress with his playload to put the PlayStation 3 in service mode and recently released two snapshots of progress.

It is indeed working on a payload to get the console into service mode and be able to launch a file. Choke on every boot via a USB key and others.

As shown in this first image, we can see the red box on the XMB showing that the console actually went into service mode. In this mode, it is possible to run specific software, including one allowing the downgrade (the opposite of update, ie back to a previous firmware).

OtherOS who says so says downgrade option of going back 3.15 for benefit of OtherOS plus most of the hack with PSGroove.

Payload through this, it is also possible to run each time you start the console, loading a file. Self from a USB key as explained above. This could allow the hack using only one time a dongle or other, then your USB stick could complete the task alone. Advances in the underground world push the limits even further, watch this."

Finally, those who haven't heard about the PlayStation 3 Factory / Service Mode before today may wish to browse through the following past articles: Service Mode PS3 Arrives, PS3 Service Mode JIG Files Leaked, Service Mode Tests Begin, Service Mode Information and PS3 Service Mode Details.

I'm sure he means a way to jailbreak the PS3 without needing to connect the jailbreak device each time the PS3 is booted. Installing an official update is almost certain to remove the jailbreak as it will reinstall all the files again.

The only way to jailbreak and PS3, keep it jailbreaked and be able to update with jailbreak is Custom firmware, just like the PSP. What happens when you update a CFW PSP to official update? It's no longer hacked. Same thing applies to the PS3.

Good point and true! So much has happened over the past few weeks. It shouldn't be un-expecting to see this released. It will probably happen but God knows when.

doubt it as they'd block whatever functions it uses via the update.

Ok just a little more speculation... If service mode will allow us to install the jailbreak permanently, would this mean we would once again be free to update?

As presumably all $ony did with the 3.42 update was prevent the PS3 booting from third party USB devices on start up!

sitting here and speculating provides nothing positive.

sit back and wait. the scene is still very young, i'm sure the surface hasn't even been scratched yet!
