Project: RichDevX PSGroove Payload for PS3 Service Mode

Sponsored Links
221w 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.

Service mode has been available for whoever wants to install it for a long time as long as you know where to find it and how to create it... i think some people need to read up on service mode before commenting and making a big deal about some pictures...

Whether this is a path to permanently "Jailbreaking" ps3s is still doubtful, chances are we won't even see a release of this payload...

This is amazing. I know this might sound nerdy but I feel like the Gods in Homer's "Iliad", when the Gods are looking down on the humans that are battling in war against eachother. What I mean is, SONY are the Trojans and the Homebrewers are the Greeks, battling it out as we, the people (the gods) sit and watch $ony and the homebrewers/hacker and exploiters fight for security vs. emulators/homebrew/hacks. these are awesome times to own a PS3! SUCK ON THAT Crap-box360!

P.S. I can't wit until there is a hack/exploit for the PS3 2.50 firmware.

The pics actually are only a few days old... The sad thing is that it probably will never be released.

Couple of months old? How do you come up with that piece of info??

If I see the photo I would say the date is standing on 9/22 as in 22nd of September isn`t it?? So unless it`s from 2009 wich I would doubt it`s actually no more then 1 week old

Plz do correct me if I`m wrong
