To quote: The Eskiss game using the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) running on a PS3. Smooth framerate at 1080p resolution.

Eskiss is just a simple game like a PoC, I ported it to show you what can be done using the EFL (I love the animations! )

And don't forget, the EFL are the core libraries used by E17, a desktop manager like Gnome or KDE (that's what I use). it's many libraries that can do a lot of things, and have a widget lib (button, sliders, checkbox, etc..) and they should be used in order to create new HB!!

The game can be played with a mouse or with a controller, this video was done using a mouse.

And here's a video for those who didn't try Eskiss yet (yes, I suck at this...

Below are some Tweets from KaKaRoToKS, as follows:

I've got some *great* news for homebrew devs! I've just ported Evas (from the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries)) to the ps3!!!

Have fun with the Expedite demo (a benchmarking tool for Evas with tons of tests). A bit slow but that's normal Enjoy!!

Edje (Layout engine) is already ported with Embryo+Lua. Next couple of days will be to port Elementary, a full widget toolkit.

Btw, Exepedite will do a printf on ethdebug and send the FPS for each test. It was fun playing with the PS3 again after so long!

You can control the game either with mouse emulation using the left analog stick, or using the d-pad to emulate the keyboard.

If you use the analog stick, the cross (X) button will act as left click, the circle (O) button will act as the right click and the square ([]) button will act as the middle click.

If you use the d-pad, then the cross (X) button will act as the main select...
 

PS3 Hacker KaKaRoToKS Interviewed, Says 3.60 Solution Coming

1350°
160w ago - Today Myce.com (linked above) interviewed PS3 hacker KaKaRoToKS, who states that a PS3 Firmware 3.60 solution is indeed coming after reports and videos of a 3.60 JailBreak running code circulated last week.

Below is the the KaKaRoToKS interview in full, to quote:

What are your thoughts on the recent PS3 3.60 firmware cracking video that was uploaded and removed over the course of a day last week? Many dubbed it fake and said it was a debug PS3, but when we chatted with the guy who uploaded it he defended it as real and said it was a retail unit.

I’ve seen the videos, and I also talked to the people who did it. Whether it’s fake or not, I cannot tell as I have not been authorized by the authors to divulge what they did. All I can say is that they said they would never release it, so whether it’s fake or not has no importance, since in the end no one will have access to it.

However, as I’ve said to a few people on Twitter, the hack that was used on 3.55 and lower was unique and Sony fixed it. So, that’s...
 

PS3IDA and PS3 Jump Table Analyzer v0.1 for PS3 Devs Arrives

350°
161w ago - Today KaKaRoToKS has announced that PS3IDA and PS3 Jump Table Analyzer (PPCJT) v0.1 for PS3 Devs is available and for use with IDA Pro v6.0 interactive disassembler and debugger.

Download: PS3 Jump Table Analyzer v0.1 / PS3IDA GIT

To quote: It's been a while since my last post! A lot has been happening lately, I've mostly kept my followers updated on what's new through my Twitter account, but I think that this deserves a post of its own!

I've been reversing some PPC code in IDA and unfortunately, it doesn't handle the PS3 files very well, so I wrote a lot of scripts in order to make it parse the files properly! There was one thing missing though that I couldn't do with an .idc script : handling of jump tables.

Yesterday, I took on the task of writing an IDA plugin in order to parse the ppc code and find jump tables and define them in IDA's kernel so the analysis is done properly! It was a very fun and exciting challenge that I enjoyed doing, and I'm happy to say that I succeeded and it works very well (on the files I tried anyways).

The IDA API is extensive and easy to use, and allows you to do pretty much anything!...
