167w ago - Today blackb0x, the same team that released the LV2 Dumper, has now released their PS3 FTP Server v1.0b followed by version 1.1 with a changelog HERE and version 1.2 with the changes detailed HERE!
To quote from PSGroove: "I have just tested this and it is stable, bug free, and FAST (11MB/sec for me). Also thanks blackb0x for the shout out, it seems our site is becoming quite popular "
PlayStation 3 FTP Server 1.0b:
Well since no one has released a bug free, speedy, easy to use FTP server we decided to take the reigns on it. Introducing FTP Server 1.0b, it doesn't crash, it doesn't byte shift, and most importantly, it doesn't suck. Oh, and...
167w ago - Following up on his previous work, today AerialXTweeted that the beginnings of a PS3 LV2 Userland (GameOS) patch framework dubbed Kammy are available for PSGroove linked above at Github or directly below.
To quote: Kammy is a system for loading patches to lv2 (PlayStation 3's Game OS) from a user application, using PSGroove or any other implementation of the exploit that adds the peek/poke syscalls. Kammy was inspired by Treeki's Nintendo Wii game patching system, Kamek.
Building Building Kammy requires three different gcc compiler toolchains.
• gcc: A normal host gcc is required to build the raw2h application.
• ppu-lv2-gcc: Used to compile the loader, only available from Sony.
• ppu-gcc, ppu-binutils: A version of gcc that will compile 64bit PowerPC instructions is required to build the patches. Linux packages can be found on BSC.es. (note: ppu-lv2-gcc may suffice for this, untested)
168w ago - According to PSGroove (linked above) and DJLO at PSX-Scene, F1 2010 is the first PS3 Game to require updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.42 which blocks both PSJailBreak and the PS3 Proxy Methods.
I was on IRC and the news broke, apparently it requires you to update and if you cancel, it takes you back to the PS3 XMB. The war has just began and Sony made the first move: User 0 vs Sony 1.
To quote: "If you ignore the game's warnings, it throws you back to the XMB. Technically this should just require some editing to the PARAM.SFO's version, in order to get the game to boot on 3.41. However, time will tell."
To quote: PS3 JailBreak is awesome, especially because it works on my phone decided to tinker with some of the PS3?s files, xRegistry.sys in particular because it holds important things like debug mode switches and bluray/dvd region, along with your PSN login details (unencrypted!) and other little tidbits.
+ Changed the setting label to readonly textbox
+ Added trimming of null bytes to setting values
+ Added Wikitext exporting (not much info)
+ Added text file exporting (loads of info)
* Fixed a bug on the first entry, i don't think it needs to be loaded, so that fixes it
+ Sortable columns
+ Integers are now output as hex
+ Added a check to make sure file is loaded to everything
+ Added Halp! menu for some things people might not know about
168w ago - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene has reported that Russian hacker GamerSuper has began a project for playing PSP games on Sony's PS3 entertainment system and shared a PoC video!
Below is the proof-of-concept video, and for those curious GamerSuper's own Web site is located HERE.
To quote from the video's caption: "Launching PSP game on PS3 - World's First Test
Here's a first video of launching PSP game on the PS3. It wasn't easy at all, I worked about a week without any breaks, a SDK which has recently leaked very helped me. I don't know why there was no in-game sound, seems I made some mistake when building a game last time.
There were some problems in controls (I mean some buttons were messed up, e.g. START became , select didn't work at all), but I'm gonna fix it."
