PS3 JIG Pictures Surface, PlayStation 3 Service Mode Tests Begin

Sponsored Links
274w ago - Recently Dutch user Sinnerman has leaked some new PS3 JIG pictures on the QJ.net (linked above) forums, and has revealed that PlayStation 3 Service Mode testing is underway with SKFU.

The application pictured below is used to create registry files required to finalize the PlayStation 3 JIG (SVC-H3A606SS) process, which must contain a valid e-mail address as they are authenticated with the SCEI server.

While we await the test results (and hopefully some PS3 JIG internal pictures), some related articles on both Sony's elusive PS3 JIG and PS3 Service Mode are as follows for those who may have missed them: PlayStation 3 Service Mode JIG Set-Up Files Leaked, Some PlayStation 3 Service Mode Details and finally PS3 Controller EEPROM Dumped And Service Mode Information.

Finally, the big question.. what if PS3 Retail consoles could be converted to PS3 Debug consoles through the PS3 JIG? Well, depending on the post-modification differences if it ended up working at a certain Firmware level then you could always convert at that level, assuming that you can get around it being verified on SCE servers.

The PS3 can tell what type it is from a syscall, one particular configuration of which is "Arcade"... to date though, nobody has been able to successfully flash Debug Firmware to Retail consoles so only time will tell.

But isn't it useless until we have valid emails and companies?
and if we have it, it will be recognized by a sony server.

Both of these we probably shouldn't rehash here, as they are already covered extensively in the PS3 Debug / Test Consoles Forum here:

Be sure to check the FAQ Sticky thread there by CJPC too!

Ok thats for me the first and only really thing from SKFU that can be very interesting.
Again "No offence meant" but NOW he shows what great hacker he are.In case of the last infos he posted, im sure the things he saied are true but they are useless otherwise he woud not gived away to normal users.

Than to claim me a "lame Pirate" becouse i only want backups for free and not a whole week later a leak like this.If he can finish this project and we are able to use the Service Mod and/or can make our own retail ps3's to debug one so, what he think what will we do?.....or better say the whole world?

Sure we will use backups...every single one who readed this thread will do so.

Anyway thats a real good and great project and i wish good luck to him to get this beast down.
