VISA extended warranty protection replaces dusty PS3

358w ago - A huge fuss was recently kicked up regarding a certain PS3 that was too dusty for Sony to repair.

However, it seems as if the gamer has been saved by his VISA card's extended warranty protection which should see his system replaced.

To quote: I just got off the phone with Visa for the third time and they are sending me a claim form to start the repair/replacement process of my system.

They at first said that they would need to attempt to have it repaired in my local video game repair shop, but I let them know that i had already contacted them and the firmware in combination with the blu-ray lens made it impossible to repair economically and it would have to be replaced.

They said as long as I had a repair receipt stating that it wasn't economical to repair, I could walk into a Best Buy, charge a new PS3 to my credit card and they would credit that charge.

Thanks A LOT, for all your help, you guys have more helpful than i would ever imagine. Lets just hope I never need to email you guys again shall we?

Thanks again,

PS3 Eboot Dumper Preview and MEMore!

358w ago - A quick update tonight with a few more details about the upcoming Eboot.bin Dumper utility. It dumps the Eboot.bin from your original PS3 Game disc, and strips the disc layer of encryption, so it is a less-encrypted SELF.

The program is simple to use: first install the package to a TEST/TOOL PS3. Then insert a memory stick in the PS3 and run the program. Upon completion, remove the memory stick and read it in a PC.

You now have an EBOOT.BIN that is void of the disc layer of encryption! There are still a few add-ons that can be made such as dumping to a PC, however that may be done down the road. Below is a picture of the BETA version of the XMB info screen for the utility.

Furthermore, we have noticed it's a bit easier to dump some of the system memory via GDB than our own custom code.

Why? Well check back on that, but we have already found a decrypted sprx in memory, and that was only after a few seconds of looking.. so some good things are to come soon!
