1050°
167w ago - Today Logic-Sunrise reports that several members of Spanish site Elotrolado are currently working on a PS3 Media Center with MKV and NTFS support.

To quote, roughly translated: Our friends on the other side of the Pyrenees from the forum Elotrolado we have a project that many expect. This is a media center with support MKV and NTFS.

Authors at the head of the project are: AdriHades: Colabor and Beta testing, Chaky: Creator of the GUI, The_marioga: Creator of the file system and analysis of XML for configuration. Some features:

  • Audio playback
  • Playing Videos
  • Picture Playback
  • Support NTFS and MKV

Current project:

  • Ongoing: libntfs for NTFS support and libmatroska for playing MKV files.
  • Progress 40% and no date of publication.

Here is a screenshot of the GUI at the moment (This is not the graphical interface of the final product, it is only there to show the existence of the project.)

Below are the changes, to quote from the list: FBANext PS3 - Custom build v2 - FIXED - r417

CHANGES (as of r417):

  • Resolution switching in Settings menu - select resolution with left and right on D-pad and press X to switch to the resolution.
  • Much better framerate due to audio tweaking - now stays within the 59.900 ballpark and beyond instead of hovering somewhere between 59.200 and 59.900.

Video: PS3 Custom Firmware with Blu-ray Player Support Arrives

171w ago - Similar to PS3 Acid CFW and PS3 Rebug, this PS3 Custom Firmware for Retail PlayStation 3 consoles includes Blu-ray Player support.

Download: PS3 CFW Retail to Keep Your Blu-ray v4 STABLE / PS3 CFW Retail v3

This is just a first come first serve, don't use this because you will lose JailBreak. This is nice to use for the fact that it puts the apps_home and game install and homebrew folder on your xmb, this has been done by, ACID, REBUG, and myself. Although we haven't made them into PUPs, you can certainly add the app_home, and install folder to XMB.

Try it Before You Buy it. If you don't like it Return. That being said, try CFW Retail just use comgenie to transfer files from your dev_flash folder to you usb folder and replace /vhs folder with one provided. Then run a custom usb loader of your choice.

PUP coming soon, that should re-enable blu-ray. Am busy testing so be patient

1. New fixes to xmb moved a few more things around
2. Did not take...
