PS3 JIG Pictures Surface, PlayStation 3 Service Mode Tests Begin


Sponsored Links
260w 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.

For what it's worth, this is what Sinnerman posted about those other two pics:
Well, I wouldn't call it a n00b hole.. Some people just didn't recognized the power supply connector immediately as such.

Crappy iPhone pics of the connectors as the most users see them:

Hopefully he will post some more... I know SKFU said he didn't want to post anything himself yet until he chats with Sinnerman.

Yeah, it is wrong, looks like the USB connector for the Card Readers (just not a FFC) as the Jig can is done via front panel USB. If the system is really busted, then its put on a bed of nails, and fixed that way!

I wouldn't hold your breath, but it would be useful if Sinnerman leaked some internal pictures of the PS3 JIG device.

We've had the software files and operation documentation for ages, but thus far nobody has leaked pictures of what's inside the JIG itself.
