188w ago - Today rms has released a PS3 Model Detection PKG homebrew application for determining the PlayStation 3 model so that, among other things, users can see if their console is supported by the various PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) updates available.

Currently the PS3 homebrew app supports both 3.41 and 3.55 Firmware systems in addition to Waninkoko 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware.

To quote: "Have you ever wondered what specific version of hardware was inside of your PS3?

Well, a dev by the name of rms, has created a PS3 app that identifies exactly that.

The app, appropriately called PS3 Model Detection, will tell you your PS3's System Target ID, Motherboard Revision, and BD-Laser Revision."

193w ago - Just over a month ago Adafruit Industries offered and paid a bounty for an Open Kinect Driver, and today German site VideoGamesZone.de (linked above) reports that running homebrew Kinect applications may soon be possible on PS3 via OtherOS and API [Register or Login to view links] drivers.

To quote, roughly translated: "Kinect for Xbox 360 might also operate on the PlayStation 3. Thanks to recent API OpenNI Drivers for Windows and Linux could allow PS3 consoles with older firmware with the OtherOS function also Kinect Underground.

The drivers allow access to all Kinect functions. Both the depth sensor and the audio and video capabilities of Kinect would theoretically available on the PlayStation 3.

So far, we have some Kinect videos from amateur hobbyists found, do the fun things with Kinect on the PC. Below are videos of a cool Minority Report-application and a player to come out with invisible Kinect makes.

A video to a Kinect application on the PlayStation 3 we have not found, yet."

650°
195w ago - A few days back graf_chokolo released a PS3 SELF Decrypter PSGroove payload, and today Heden of DeLiGhT has released at PSGroove (linked above) a PlayStation 3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter application followed by an update below.

Download: PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter V0.5 Beta / PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter V0.6 Beta

To quote: Unlike graf_chokolo's method, DeLiGhT's application does not require a special payload to decrypt.

Simply place the SELF/SPRX you want decrypted into /dev_hdd0/game/DCRY00001/USRDIR/SOURCE/ Then run the SELF/SPRX DECRYPTER from the XMB, and finally retrieve the decrypted files from /dev_hdd0/game/DCRY00001/USRDIR/DESTINATION/

From the ReadMe File: SELF/SPRX DECRYPTER - V0.5 BETA

12/04/10 - V0.5B - Initial BETA Release
- Decrypting internal PS3's SELF/SPRX files
[BETA - The decrypter hangs on some files]

GameOS utilizes files to make the console work (I won't give details) These files (SELF = EXE, SPRX = DLL) are stored in /dev_flash. This tool enables to decrypt...

207w ago - With the start of the real PS3 Scene, people sharing what they have - I decided to code up this little, horribly buggy PS3 FTP server homebrew app.

Download: PS3 FTP Server Homebrew Application / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

It is an FTP Server for the PS3, with it, on a retail with your choice of "hack" to enable unsigned code it allows:

• Full Read/Write access to all of "dev_hdd0" (including save areas, games, VM etc)
• Full Read/Write access to "dev_flash2" and "dev_flash3"
• Full Read/Write access to connected usb devices
• Full Read access to "dev_flash"
• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"

To use:

Connect with your choice of FTP client - Prefered is the old "ftp" from the command line, however Filezilla seems to work, allowing only one connection, and disabling PASV support.

Furthermore, the Server does not support some commands (like rename, of all things!) so make sure what you do counts!

Use the IP shown on the screen - make sure to have your net connection up and running before hand (wired is so much faster)

Connect to that IP, port 21, use...
 

Sony's PS3 and PSP to Get Skinny PSN Applications Store

300°
232w ago - It's been both rumored and in development for quite some time, and now [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that Sony's PS3 and PSP are indeed getting a 'skinny' PSN applications store.

Dubbed skinny, the SDK tool is a simple yet effective means for content holders to put their intellectual property on the PlayStation platforms without software development.

Skinny consists of an authoring tool and a native client runtime for PS3 and PSP developers.

To quote: "Skinny is "ideal" for "strategy guides, game maps, cheats, training manuals, episodic videos, eBooks and eMagazines" and consists of a web-based editor/authouring tool and a software client for both the PS3 and PSP.

The user creations still require submission to Sony for approval, but this will quickly pave the way for lots of mini-apps on the PlayStation Store."
