From the included ReadMe file, to quote: INTRODUCTION

For years, the security system of PS3 remained unbreached because Sony had a very good defense mechanism: Consumers could use it for more than just gaming by installing Linux via the "Other OS" feature.

Therefore there was little motivation for security researchers to investigate the PS3. However, then Sony (or SCE, SCEA, SCEE or whatever, we aren't exactly sure what is going on there anymore) made an unprecedented move:

Not only did they introduce a new PS3 model that no longer allowed the installation of an Other OS, but with a firmware "upgrade" they removed it from previously sold consoles.

While removing advertised features from a product (several...

193w ago - Today an anonymous user on PS3-Hacks has posted a guide on connecting to PSN on [Register or Login to view links] (right-click, save as) with a video by tt94867 below, followed by a simpler tutorial from slifer1231 HERE and PSN Update Bypass v0.1.1, PSN Update Bypass v0.2.1 and PSN Update Bypass v0.2.2 by [Register or Login to view links].

To quote: Personally I haven't tried this yet, but it seems promising... This comes from an anonymous fellow who is reporting success on connecting to PSN using PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 by Kmeaw. So install that first and then follow these steps.

The following assumes you're technically inclined and/or very resourceful, i.e. you know how to use Google. You'll likely need to reference Google when it comes to generating/signing a certificate and creating a CA (certification authority). That said lets get started; here we're using a...
 

PS3MFW - PS3 Modified Firmware Project is Announced

194w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker [Register or Login to view links] has announced news of PS3MFW, a PS3 Modified Firmware project!

From the official site (linked above): We have just been informed by an anonymous source that a new modified firmware-project is underway: Project PS3MFW.

There are several contributors, some of whom are well-known within the PS3 homebrew community but wish to remain anonymous. However, we were told that KaKaRoTo is playing an important role in the project.

The purpose of Project PS3MFW is the development of a customizable tool that creates modified firmware for Playstation 3 with many great features not available in current solutions. It provides a framework where each firmware modification task is an independent plugin with access to an API that facilitates the modification process. One important feature is that the project will be entirely open source, as opposed to every other MFW released to date.

The tool will be called “PS3MFW Builder”, and it will work in conjunction with several other utilities.

Project PS3MFW is an ongoing project; anyone qualified can contribute. A release of the PS3MFW Builder v0.1 is imminent.

Updates from KaKaRoToKS via Twitter: PS3MFW has ~65 customization...
