PS3 Hello World UT3 Mod Proof-Of-Concept released!

500°
356w ago - Yesterday we posted a rumor of a PS3 Hello World Homebrew Method found by dragula96. Many were skeptical as it was announced the day before April Fool's Day, however, today we are happy to confirm the only fools were those who dubbed it as "fake" :P

Courtesy of dragula96, here is the PS3 Hello World UT3 Mod Proof-Of-Concept along with related info and a new video detailing how it was done! Please NOTE (as suspected in the previous comments) this is a UT3 Mod and not true PS3 homebrew (running unsigned code), however, it is an excellent accomplishment in itself.





From the ReadMe file: ps3 hello world by dragula96 4.1.08

this is a proof of concept/hello world
this already works with firmware version 2.20
the idea is to use this method to try and code
games to play via the ps3.

requirements to run:

Unreal Tournament 3 for ps3 v 1.10 i belive (maybe 1.20)
which ever is most current as of this date.

requirements to code:
 

WIP: Downgrade your PS3 version without previous dumps!

100°
358w ago - We announced this notice some time ago, now I would like to show you a picture of the tool I compiled to do the job. You need the Infectus mod-chip on your PS3 to downgrade. This mod-chip allows you to take a backup of your current PS3 Firmware that can be restored.

The news is that before it wasn't possible to downgrade without a previous dump of your own PS3 console's Firmware, but now things have changed.

Using this tool you can modify a NAND backup in order to let the console think it has a lower Firmware version, so later you can use an official Sony upgrade PUP file to "downgrade" to the version you need.

It has been tested to patch all PS3 Firmware dumps up to 2.10 so far, but is a work-in-progress as we still need to test re-updating more thoroughly.

I would like to thanks to Gigi and Mainman for their support in this tool, and all the other PS3News Devs for helping us in all our work.
 

PS3 Six USB Port Mod video out!

250°
361w ago - Not long ago we all saw the PS3 Rear USB Port Mod Video, and today MacSolidWorks is back with his latest creation- a (6) USB Port Mod (4 front and 2 rear) for PS3!

To quote: My PS3 now boasts six (6) fully functional USB ports, the original four in front, and two (2) in the rear. We used the facilities of Dominion Lasercom's R&D lab for our work location as this is a seriously complex (and frightening) mod.

Since their are no schematics or plans anywhere on the net to do this, we had a-lot of head scratching and hurdles to deal with, but in the end it worked out very well as you can see.





Basically what we've done is cut the data path from the internal USB controller chip on the PS3 to the #4 USB port (the one closest to the center).

We then wired the upstream connection on the "external" hub to the PS3's data output on those traces, thus tricking the PS3 into thinking there's a regular four port hub plugged into the front.

After that, we wired a downstream cable from the "external" hub back to the PS3's front USB port.

To activate the two rear USB ports we simply ran 2 pairs of data lines from the "external" hub.

All power to and from the...
 

PS3 rear USB port mod unveiled!

250°
362w ago - MacSolidWorks undertook the painful process of modifying his PS3 in order to provide it with a rear USB mod for use with the Playstation Eye.

After searching high and low for instructions, he decided to just go ahead and perform the mod himself as shown in the video below.

To quote: I modified my PS3 to have a rear USB port for my Playstation EYE. I looked all over the web for instructions on how to do this but couldn't find anything. So I just did it myself.





Here are the results:

1. It works.

2. As long as you don't plug anything into the front USB port you've "borrowed" for the rear port, everything is fine.

3. If you plug something into the "borrowed" port, both peripherals stop working and you'll need to restart the PS3.

4. This setup cannot act like a true USB hub as it's just a pass-thru for one of the front ports.

Since this setup is not optimal and I'd like at least 2 USB ports on the back of my PS3, I'm currently working on a new mod that will allow a true hub on the back eliminating the aforementioned limitations.
 

PS3 UT3 Mutator Action Cam v1.0 released!

100°
364w ago - Courtesy of fall: Play Unreal Tournament 3 from an over the shoulder view, like Gears of War or Mass Effect. This new camera view enhances the action and really brings you into the fight!

Enter the battle with an over the shoulder camera and see the Action from an all new perspective! Action Cam is designed to offer better visibility, depth, and feedback to the player than the normal first person view, and offers pixel-perfect accuracy.

Action Cam v1.0 is released onto our favorite console and ready for the masses to play around with! Thanks to StuntF50 for helping test the PS3 version, as I don't own one.

Download: PS3 UT3 Mutator Action Cam v1.0

To install on your PS3:

1. Unzip the file to the root directory of any memory card that is readable by your PlayStation 3. It is already in the proper directory structure but, just in case, the path and filename need to be: ps3savedatablus30086-modimportuserdata.jam
2. Boot up Unreal Tournament 3 on your PS3
3. Go to the "Community" menu
4. Choose "My Content"
5. Press the [SQUARE] button to "Import Mod"
