124w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacking group Fail0verflow has tweeted news of a Standalone Linux PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow demo that Marcan42 wanted to show off during this year's 27C3 but couldn't due to the video not working.
From the video's caption, to quote: "This is what the fail0verflow 27c3 demo *should* have looked like. As it turns out, the reason why we didn't have working video and had to fall back to an SSH demo was because this Slim is too new to run version 3.15 (what we tried to run), since it does not correctly support this particular revision of the RSX. So here's the same demo, except with version 3.41, which does work."
For those who missed it, pytey of Fail0verflow was also recently interviewed by the BBC.
The video can be seen below, and here are some related Fail0verflow tweets:
