161w ago - Recently we learned how to use PS3 game Title IDs to Download PS3 Game Update Packages on Your PC, and today I have made a simple PC application called IdentifyMyGame which will give you information about the PS3 game by inputting the Title ID of it.
162w ago - Similar to how Medal of Honor required PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.42 until a workaround followed by a fix surfaced, today James Bond 007 Blood Stone USA was released by DEFECT for PS3 JailBreak users, and the NFO File states it requires PS3 Firmware 3.50.
While the European version only requires Firmware 3.41, I have gotten the USA scene release version of James Bond 007 Blood Stone working fine here.
Although it initially requires PS3 Firmware 3.50, I modified the SFO File to version 3.41000 and removed the game's update folder.
Then I simply used the EBOOT.bin file from the MRNEuropean version and it's now running on my JailBroken PS3 console. The game is currently...
162w ago - A few weeks back Dominator7 made a guide on how to port / convert plain payload files for USB JailBreak dongles, and today garyopa at PSX-Scene has posted news of an ATMega16A Payload Injector project for PS3 JailBreak devices including PSGroove.
To quote: A lot of people that have bought the original PSJailbreak, or the various cheap clones, have been left in the dark with the old basic first public release of PSGroove that the cloners had burned into their ATMega16A chips that been widely used in the dongles that have been sold!
But of course with no bootloader burned in for future use, you can't update them to support the latest and greatest of the new payloads that have appeared like the Hermes V4b, and the very useful PL3 versions!
Along comes ATMega16A Payload Injector Project which originally started out as forum thread on Elotrolado, the very active Spanish site, with lots of good talented PS3 Developers!
162w ago - Here is my quick x3Max PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip review, which I got from their official site linked above.
My story begins as I'm listening to speedcore on my computer and conducting business. Suddenly there's a knock at my door - I peer out the window to see a large van on the street.
I get up and answer the knocking only to discover a lady with a clipboard. She illustrates her desire for my signature and while this is happening I start to remember that I had ordered some samples.
After I politely signed my signature she proceeded to hand me a large DHL bag. We part ways and I enter my computer room, from here I proceed to open the bag only to discover a padded envelope.
I gaze upon it and begin to tear though it and I eventually discover what appears to be my JailBreak sample! Happily I open the resealable plastic, and on my computer I open up PS3News.com eager to write this lovely review!
ANYWAYS! This x3Max JailBreak came in an ugly box which featured a guy with tomato sauce on his face playing his PS3 - I have no idea why they used this, when their Web site has a picture of some hot girl holding a ps3 controller.
