16w ago - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer MiralaTijera has shared details on his PS3 CFW 4.31 OtherOS++ WIP (work-in-progress) which contains no spoofing older Custom Firmware versions and includes QAFlag and BD Emu without a controller among the features outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: Hi, basically I stand in the community giving what I made in the dark slowly.. This is my FULL 4.31 4.31 cfw spoof's nothing, it's all ported to the 4.31, and... I give to my multitool also called "core" which is nothing more than a self that load at startup console if this is available in the right usb of your console "/ dev_usb000 /" which among other things dumpea flash console, you enable qa flags (yes in 4.31 directly) and gets you out and gets you the factory mode... I put the specs:
42w ago - Following up on his previous work, today PlayStation 3 developer glevand has made available a Linux Cold Boot 3.55 Custom Firmware (CFW) OtherOS++ for PS3 Slim users via Gitbrew that loads into Petitboot with a single button press.
To quote: Hmm, it would be really nice to cold boot Linux on SLIM. The problem is this. On SLIM we patch GameOS loader and add the OtherOS++ support.
The OtherOS++ loader reads Petitboot from VFLASH and loads it in case the OtherOS flag is set. But at cold boot we cannot access VFLASH immediately, that doesn't work, i tried even to implement retries with sleep calls, no chance.
And today i took a look at GuestOS loader in LPAR1 process 9 (LV1 3.15) and noticed the following interesting thing. It doesn't matter on old OtherOS if we want to cold boot OtherOS...
83w ago - A few months back a PlayStation 3 Waninkoko Brick Fix and tutorial were released, and today the Gitbrew Team have released a PS3 OtherOS++ NAND Brick or PUP Updater Error Fix BETA and guide of their own.
Below is a brief guide from their site, as follows:
PS3 Beta Brick Fixing
This is a beta tool. It has only be tested on otheros++ nand bricks and some pup updater file errors. This hasn't been 100% tested, though we're looking for people to try it to see what bricks it will actually fix.
1. Put both files into the root directory of a flash drive.
2. Put the dongle into the ps3 while it is off and start it.
3. If the flash drive is activated it can be fixed using this.
4. If it however does not,...
To quote: Well I am pleased to announce that RSX Driver for FreeBSD is released. The RSX driver is the product of hard work by durandal and glevand, who gave up many hours to accomplish this. So here you go, the link for the RSX driver: http://git.gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/linux/ps3rsx.tar.gz
On a side note, may I add that contrary to public belief for 5 YEARS, the RSX doesnt not rely on DMA to process graphics, but rather uses PPU instructions to push objects to RSX VRAM. So yeah another breakthrough by the team who scammed everyone. Gitbrew.
PS: To all those who started complaining about this noble effort to enable...
