Video: PS3 3K3y Revelations - Blu-ray ODD Emulator Demo Arrives


Sponsored Links
115w ago - Following up on the previous update, today the PS3 3K3y Team have made available a video, the official features and release date of 12-12-12 for those interested below.

To quote: PS3 3K3y Features:

  • Play your PS3, PS2 and PSX games from any USB media!
  • No custom firmware required for operation* - you can update to the latest official firmware for PSN access
  • Integrated game ripper
  • User friendly intuitive interface
  • No soldering required
  • Multi-language support
  • Compatible with both Fat and Slim models
  • Supports most file systems, including NTFS, EXT2/3/4, and Mac OS X Extended
  • High speed USB2 interface
  • Powerful embedded Linux system running from Micro SD card (included)
  • Linux firmware fully updatable from USB media
  • FPGA fully updatable from USB media via built-in, in-system JTAG programming
  • Recovery mode - it is always possible to recover from a bad flash Update your PS3 as normal, no CFW or game patching required
  • Pass-through mode. (Use your PS3 in "normal mode")

* Currently firmware 3.55 is required for exctracting the drive key. Once the key has been extracted the PS3 can be updated to any official or custom firmware. We are working on hardware methods for extracting keys from PS3's already on 4.x firmware.

PS3 3K3y How It Works:

3k3y is an optical disk drive emulator for the PlayStation 3 video game console. It is installed between the genuine Blu-ray drive and the PS3 motherboard.

Once 3k3y is successfully installed and configured it can be used to make backups of your original PS3 game disks to USB media, and play those backups from USB media without the need of the original game disk.

Several games can be backed up to a single USB media, making it ideal as a 'jukebox' for hardcore gamers as well as for families with children too young to handle bluray discs with appropriate care.

3k3y works with most PS3 models, however there are a few exceptions, most notably the new super slim model and all PS3s which comes with firmware 4.xx (after retrieving the drive key the PS3 can be upgraded to any firmware). We are working to add support for these PS3's but you are adviced to consult with your reseller if you are in doubt whether your PS3 is compatible with 3k3y or not.





Finally, 3K3Y has detailed pricing at a costly USD $129 for those who can't wait for free PlayStation 3 scene solutions, new PS3 key leaks, CEX and DEX fixes, etc.

Shortly following, a bit more information about 3K3y and 3Dump (via consolecrunch.com/more-information-about-3k3y-3dump-coming-soon/) surfaced, to quote:

Following up on the previous update, today the 3K3y Team shows us a picture of their future release application called 3Dump that allows you to dump the key that is needed to use the 3K3y.

3K3y Users: Stay Away from OFW 4.55, 3K3y IsoTools v1.34.9 Out!

To quote from modrobert: After reading the news about Cobra ODE failing for some PS3 models I sacrificed a 3k3y 3KR (3KS-R) install on a PS3 Super Slim (4k), updated to OFW 4.55, and it failed to load GTA5 after that (just hangs in XMB)!

So, for now, don't update to OFW 4.55. Only 'pass-thru' mode works so far in my tests on OFW 4.55, will try some more games.

Users with older fat PS3 consoles have reported success with 3k3y on OFW 4.55, so this seem to affect newer consoles, as Team Cobra suggested.





IsoTools 1.34.9 by UglyClicker

As requested by a vast amount of users, here is the update notification for the new version of IsoTools.

The new version will automatically install when you open IsoTools. As of now, only version 9 IRD files can be uploaded, you can also download the package manually:

Download: IsoTools-1.34.9.rar / IsoTools-Binaries-1.34.9.zip

1.34.9

  • Fixed exception when ejecting a disc

2014-02-12: Do NOT update to firmware 4.55

As many of you already know, Sony released update 4.55, which apparently blocks the 3k3y, Cobra and E3. We are looking for a solution. In the mean time, do NOT update, and monitor the forums for progress.

2014-05-06: 3K3y: Firmware 4.55 update

We have been looking into a solution that doesnt require a boot disk, but unfortunately we have not had any success yet. We will now make an update (with swap) for 4.55 users.

Hello everyone, there is a method to change the psn id on the console with 3k3y?

I've already tried IDPs dumper but nothing, I also tried to install psidpatch from multiman but it did not work. What can I do?

Below are the IsoTools 1.34 - IsoTools 1.34.6 & 1.34.8 updates from UglyClicker alongside 3Key Firmware 2.07, as follows:

1.34.3:

  • Updated IRD version to 9, no changes, but a lot easier method to calculate the hash
  • Fixed auto upload IRD file
  • Manager ISO now contains PS1/PS2 games as well
  • Fixed video while mounting a game (thanks Harryoke)
  • Extract ISO now also extracts zero byte files
  • Fixed crash after extraction
  • Create ISO (homebrew) now always creates a correct disc, even with a small amount of files (couldn't open the disc in IsoBuster for instance)
  • Add support to make an empty update region (saves 256 MB of zeroes). This only works in homebrew/manager isos when no update file exists.
  • Add a check to fix invalid marked ISO files (encrypted while data is decrypted, and vice versa)
  • Added sortorder on none/date/filename while creating manager iso (in settings)
  • Fixed boolean arguments in isotoolscon
  • Fixed wrong path in IsoCreator under Mono (when running under linux)
  • Added JB Validator to validate a JB rip against an IRD file (same process when you create an ISO with IRD).
  • Fixed IsoMenuCreator
  • Merged IsoMenuCreator and IsoTools:
  • IsoTools only supports PS3 isos (interface limitation, not a code limitation)
  • IsoMenuCreator supports both PS3 and XBOX isos, xk3y firmware still needs support for this

1.34.4 - Bugfix release:

  • Fixed issue with 3K3Y Manager and > 50 games
  • PS1/PS2 game detection improved

27/11/13 - 3K3y firmware update 2.07:

Note: If you ever want to generate the latest gyo.db in real time (3k3y.com/ird_files/gyo) and update your 3k3y with the file it generates.

Download: 02.07.zip

New Features:

  • Improved handling of PS3 Extra menu ISO
  • Support for PS3 4004
  • Improved handling of PS3 Extra menu ISO (logical partition)
  • Removed requirement for PS3 boot disk when loading PS3 Extra menu
  • Dont eject disk when console sends stop/start cmd (308R/310R)

3k3y firmware UPDATE v2.07:

Instructions

1. Extract the files "rootfs", "uImage" ,, "3key.cfg" and "gyo.db" (the fpga updates are not included in this update. If you already did the latest fpga updates from 2.02 or bought your 3k3y recently you don't need to update again. If your FPGA is not up to date please download 2.02 and use the fpga from there. Why is it left out? People are not reading and doing the wrong updates so this will filter some of them out!)

2. Open 3key.cfg with Notepad and configure it if needed. If you do not wish to change the settings on your 3k3y then you do not need to edit OR update your 3k3y with this file, leave it out!

2.1 Add the files to the root folder of a Flash Drive or HDD. (Make sure to "eject" the drive properly from the PC, it may otherwise cause corrupt files)

3. Connect the Flash drive or HDD to your 3k3y remote and wait for the 3k3y to start the update.
3.1 The remote OLED will now display "UPDATING - PLEASE WAIT" for about 35 seconds. (Do not turn off your PS3 or disconnect the remote while updating. FPGA updates will take a little longer)

4. Once the update is completed, the OLED will display "UPDATE COMPLETE - RESET" Reboot your PS3 and the 3k3y should now be updated to the latest firmware.

5. That's it! Continue to enjoy using 3k3y with the new features!

NOTE! If you use the same drive as you store content on to do the update with, then its recommended (not needed) to remove the "rootfs", "uImage" & "3key.cfg" and any other files from the root of your drive after a firmware update. Since keeping them there will cause the 3k3y to check the files if they are a newer firmware version then stored on your 3k3y micro SD card, and because of that take longer time for your HDD to be recognized.

Below is Install Disc Creator for ODE by ICECOLDKILLAH with details, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

INTRODUCTION:

2 months ago, harryoke showed us a PoC for installing PKGs on ps3s with odde, now i made this...

IDC is an AIO tool to create and also build, what i call an “install disc”; a disc that contains installable PKG files via PS3_EXTRA method, you can also add custom images as logo and edit the PARAM.SFO, no additional software required!

HOW TO USE:

To add a PKG or an IMG just double click into the fields, to delete a PKG or an IMG just click the X next to the respective field.

If you dont choose an image for your PKG, it will use the default IDC image.

CHANGELOG:

IDC v1.00 (24/11/13)

  • fixed the whole shiat
  • added param sfo title edit feature
  • added 3k3y iso build feature

IDC BETA (20/11/13)

  • first release (non-public)

ADDITIONAL INFOS:

IDC is made by ICECOLDKILLAH, with help and the idea from harryoke. IDC uses the Title ID from the Borderlands 2 DLC Disc -> BLES01813, GenPS3iso v2.1 from Team Cobra and PARAM.SFO Editor v2.3 from aldostools.

IDC requires .NET Framework 4: [Register or Login to view links]

3K3y IsoTools v1.34

Fixed support for files larger than 4GB in homebrew ISOs. Updated IRD version to 8. Fixed issue with unpacking update file. Note1: All previous versions of the IsoTools had a bug which could mess homebrew ISOs (corrupt data!). Rebuild ISOs from source is recommended. Note2: For the 3k3y Manager ISO firmware release 2.05 is MANDATORY!

3k3y IsoTools v1.34.2

3k3y IsoTools (aka 3k3y Ripp3r v) installation setup for Windows. NOTE: This requires .NET 4.0. New in this release: Possible fix for mixed PS3/Blu-ray discs. Encrypt generates correct filename if input file doesn't use .dec.iso. Fixed issues with games not booting after installed an update (8001003E). Note: If you update from a version before v1.34.1, you may need to update twice! This is due to a filename change on the server.

3K3y Firmware v2.05

3K3y firmware UPDATE. New in this release: New Game Selection Menu system. Fix for Dynamic ISOMENU. New Mr Waffles WIFI code.

From harryoke: Yippee... No more errors when updating non IRD iso files... just remake your iso with the updated tools and you can now update enjoy. IsoTools + 2.05 gives you the ability to load a game straight from XMB.

To activate new menu system ... in cfg file set iso menu and dont forget to use manager iso in isotools to create your menu

SNES Emulator / NES on PS3 OFW via 3K3y ODDE

I was recently asked if i could port a snes emulator to OFW. Well here you have it , tested and working via 3K3Y ODDE. Zecoxao and myself are striving to bring as much homebrew to OFW that we can , but there are some technical difficulties. So please be patient as rome wasn't built in a day. No roms are included in the release as this would be classed as piracy.
