SKFU: Sony Wants PS3 YLOD, TeamICE PSP Emulator Bricks PS3

Sponsored Links
222w ago - Today SKFU reports that based on his recent findings Sony may actually want PS3 YLOD consoles, and in related news the TeamICE 'PSP Emulator' is bricking PS3 consoles of those who use it.

To quote from SKFU: "Due my reserach for a CFW I noticed an interesting string in a .RCO file (system_plugin.rco).


The system has become hot. Please turn off the system and wait a while before turning it on again.

So my thought is: Could the PS3 have prevented most of the YLOD cases, as there should be a function to shutdown the PS3 when it is too hot? Seems so, but well - someone may want to make profit."

According to PSGroove, Forum user TeamICE has released an alleged 'PSP Emulator' that is reported to be bricking PlayStation 3 consoles.

To quote: "They are showing screenshots and even including a readme which adds to the appearance of legitimacy. Unfortunately, this is not a psp emulator, when ran it actually will brick your PS3 console.

If you see someone posting this teamICE psp emu, then please ignore it and report the user.

Mathieulh was quick to announce that the EBOOT.BIN is a manufacturing_updater_for_reset.self. Explaining that the jailbreak patches enable the cosole to run any self, no matter the auth ID, run because the function always returns back as true."

Actually when you're soldering you need around 270-280'c which is just hot enough to melt the solder around the component. Any more than that and you'll lift the tracks etc.

Who the hell owns a "solder gun" that does 800 degrees? You mean a hot air gun?

Hmm... believe it or not. But my fixed YLOD PS3 60GB popped again after updating to 3.50.

So i believe there is some truth in the story. But are the PHAT consoles the only one that are affected??
