181w ago - This weekend SKFU shared news of a research project that himself, iQD and a few others have began work on with the PS3 Blu-ray drive in order to, among other goals, run PlayStation 3 game backups from the PS3 HDD.
Getting Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system to function without a BDD was not a difficult challenge for them, however, many may recall previous attempts by MysticHades among others to examine PS3 hacks which allow running game backups from the hard disk drive.
Earlier this year, knightsolidus detailed the Blu-ray drive PS3 CXD4302GB Chip Test Points, and Spanish site Elotrolado reported on a PS3 exploit found to run PlayStation 3 backups along with a leaked Sony Disc Boot Game Patch Programming Guide.
Prior to that, PS3 developers examined several PS3...
182w ago - Just under a month ago the IntensaFire PlayStation 3 Controller Mod by BGRMods was first announced, and today I have reviewed this PS3 DualShock rapid-fire modification below!
First off I would like to thank IntensaFireStore.com for providing this wonderful chip, installation was seamless and simple; if taking your controller apart is impossible for you, don't worry about it.
Instructions are included with this, no worrying about a large PDF on CD or 900 pages of nothing. Most of it is self-explanatory and anyone can figure it out (Maybe not a caveman, however )
Let's get down to business, shall we?
Again, installation is simple. Don't make a thread complaining that you can't get your controller open or you can't figure out how the chip snaps on top of the controller chip.. it's not rocket science ;]
I've demoed this mod on 3 PS3 games (I'm not your cheater here, so I worked with only PlayStation 3 demos). After I played the Battlefield 1943 demo, which had a trial period of 30 minutes, I haven't used it since.
It was rather amazing to be able to adjust the fire rate in-game as well, allowing me...
184w ago - As if the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise hasn't seen more than its fair share of PS3 Hacks (see HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE), today Hunter128 from NextGenUpdate.com (linked above) has revealed some new exploits on the current CoD 1.10 patch.
According to the video, the new MW2 PlayStation 3 hacks include Super Sprint, Super Knife and AC130 in every care package.
NGUHSx9 also states the following via YouTube, to quote: "Expect more hacking videos including possibly all emblems and titles hack, infinite ammo, etc..."
Those who aren't against PS3 online game hacks can check out the video below!
184w ago - We've seen the PS3 Exploit performed with an SX28, Atmega8 and Parallel/LPT1 Port, so here are some pics, a schematic and source code to run the PlayStation 3 exploit via USB Keyboard with an LED.
Maybe some of you don't want to open the PS3 just because if you install the exploiter hardware, it would look ugly.
Or just wanna hide/integrate, so it won't interfere, deattach,... etc if you have to move the "box". Even if neither, I think it looks better, work better if you install inside.
So, how to do?
Install a faux-keyboard to one of the usb and connect a wire to the "magic-point".
Update: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.92 is now available HERE to download, which contains some fixes as detailed, followed shortly by v1.97 HERE with more changes and a demonstration video below!
I didn't program most of PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 and only take credit for merging...
