Project PS3 Blu-ray WIP Seeks to Restore Drives Post-Downgrade

550°
215w ago - Previously we reported that PS3 downgrading hinders Blu-ray movie playback along with some work-arounds while markjtarr began a Poll on working/non-working drives post-downgrade, and today Project Blu-ray seeks to restore functionality using feedback from PlayStation 3 downgraders.

To quote from PSGroove (linked above): "They are asking anyone with a PS3 to run an app they have developed, which will dump certain files related to Blu-Ray playback.

It does not matter if the Blu-ray problem is affecting your console or not, your files are still needed for analysis. Once analyzed, this should lead to a permanent Blu-ray playback fix!"

From the included ReadMe file: One of the most exciting recent developments is the ability to downgrade PS3s to previous firmwares. Unfortunately this has proven to have an unexpected side-effect for certain older ("phat") PS3s:

After downgrading, systems with 256MB of flash RAM (NAND) lose the...

PSGrade - PS3 Downgrading, Master Key and Hex Codes Arrive!

1350°
216w ago - Update: According to several members (including jensen76, evilsperm, and sk group) when you downgrade a PS3 with the Modified 3.41 PUP (below), it currently cripples the Blu-ray player functionality. Some additional PS3 Blu-ray fix updates are outlined HERE, however, a more stable solution is still being worked on.

To quote from [Register or Login to view links] on one work-around: "I was able to restore one machine I had, by copying over all the files I had in the /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3 back to the HDD, that I had saved before when it was on v3.41"

Forum member p666 also has expanded on the PS3 Blu-ray fix a bit HERE...

They promise open-source code to be release soon, but find below pre-compiled HEX files:

PS3Payload Downloader WIP Project Started, Release Incoming

550°
217w ago - Today DanyL has announced at PSX-Scene (linked above) that he has started work on a PS3Payload Downloader project, and although it is currently a WIP he states a release will be incoming as soon as work is completed.

To quote: I'm happy to announce a new project I'm working on, called PS3Payload Downloader.

It's a program that gathers all the payloads for all the platforms (rockbox, teensy, psfreedom and so on) in one place and allow you to download them.

As all my other projects - it's an open source. I'll release the source in github when I'll finish working on it.

Most of the programming is done, what I still need to do it:

• Improve search engine
• Improve GUI - Done
• Create a Logo - Done
• Create an updater - Done

Server side:

• List and upload all the payloads (Uploaded and listed = 76 payloads)
