Project: Resident PS3 Devs Are Seeking a RE Specialist

800°
236w ago - A few months back we gave a shout out for a talented coder, and shortly after SamY was welcomed to our PS3 Dev Team!

In recent weeks we have made some significant progress with the PS3 Reference Tool, which will be detailed as time permits in the months to come.

That being said, we are now seeking someone who can help with MIPs Executable (ELF) reversals from decrypted, non-obfuscated file dumps.

A few of the resident PS3 Devs have assisted us with this in the past, but for the near future are unable to devote the time and we would like to keep moving forward at a comfortable pace.

So.. if you have experience in this area, feel free to message me (CJPC) on IRC EFnet, reply to this thread or E-Mail Us.

As soon as you have demonstrated your ability, we will add you as a PS3 Dev here and invite you to our PS3 Dev IRC channel to work directly with us.

PS: Please keep in mind, this progress has nothing at all to do with the Retail PS3 console......
 

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 PS3 Trophy Glitch Discovered

500°
237w ago - It appears a PS3 Trophy glitch has been discovered on the recently released Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for PS3.

Those who utilize this PS3 hack can accumulate PS3 Trophies without even playing the game simply by watching another user play through the game's menu.

To quote from Examiner.com (linked above): "A glitch has been discovered in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 where players can earn trophies without even playing the game.

By watching a replay of another person's play through in the game's menu, the onlooker will get any trophies unlocked from the footage.

A similar glitch was previously discovered in Ninja Gaiden II on the Xbox 360."

Here is to hoping that Tecmo can patch the trophy glitch before the exploitation becomes widespread.
 

Video: PS3 Slim Laptop - Amazing PS3 Mod By Ben Heck

237w ago - Ben Heck has outdone himself with the minimal clean design of his latest gaming mod- a PS3 Slim Laptop mod!

This laptop sees Sony's PS3 Slim stuffed into a monochromatic chassis with 17-inch Gateway 1775w LCD throwing a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
There's even space inside to tuck away the power cord when traveling.

The pinstriped result is nothing short of elegant, sporty even, especially when compared to his PS3 laptop from 2008.

Check out a video of it below!




 

PS3 JIG Pictures Surface, PlayStation 3 Service Mode Tests Begin

850°
239w ago - Recently Dutch user Sinnerman has leaked some new PS3 JIG pictures on the QJ.net (linked above) forums, and has revealed that PlayStation 3 Service Mode testing is underway with SKFU.

The application pictured below is used to create registry files required to finalize the PlayStation 3 JIG (SVC-H3A606SS) process, which must contain a valid e-mail address as they are authenticated with the SCEI server.

While we await the test results (and hopefully some PS3 JIG internal pictures), some related articles on both Sony's elusive PS3 JIG and PS3 Service Mode are as follows for those who may have missed them: PlayStation 3 Service Mode JIG Set-Up Files Leaked, Some PlayStation 3 Service Mode Details and finally PS3 Controller EEPROM Dumped And Service Mode Information.

Finally, the big question.. what if PS3 Retail consoles could be converted to PS3 Debug consoles through the PS3 JIG? Well, depending on the post-modification differences...
 

Guide: Three Ways of Running Your Own Code on PS3

650°
240w ago - Today SKFU has posted a brief guide on three way to run your own code on Sony's PS3 console, as follows:

1. OtherOS

The easiest way to run your own code on the PlayStation 3 is through Linux which you can install as alternative OS. Several restrictions regarding the RSX, but it seems to become better regarding 3D acceleration since the new MESA 3D GL was released with CELL support.

2. BD-Java

A few days ago I reported, that the developers of demonhades.org found out, that BD-Java still works if you correctly burn it on a Blu-Ray disc. With the FreePlay's minimal BD-Java SDK it's quite ok to develop Java for PS3.

3. Flash

Since FW 2.0 till FW 3.0 there was the so called Informationboard. This is a simple .swf file on the HDD and can be replaced with knightsolidus' HDD decryption method. As the informationboard.swf does not run in a sandbox there's a lot possible but sadly it was removed in the actual FW 3.0.
