Sony Hard Drives Store Five Times More

50°
335w ago - Finding space to stash all of your multimedia has become an increasingly frustrating challenge.

From high-definition videos to countless music files, the hard drive on your laptop is literally bursting at the seams. Sony is coming to the rescue with a new hybrid magnet/laser system for hard drives, effectively increasing capacity five-fold. That's right, on the same-sized platter as you have right now, you can enjoy up to five times the memory.

This new method of writing information is said to be even viable for notebook computers. Current hard drives rely solely on magnetics, but this hybrid system more closely resembles that of optical technologies. By combining their efforts, the Sony drive is able to write information at a density as high as 125GB per square inch. The rest of the HDD remains fairly traditional.

You may be reasonably proud of the 320GB hard drive you have in your laptop now, but imagine if a near identical setup could provide you with 1.6TB of space. Cool.

PS3 SAK Export And File Merger Plus v0.1.0.0 released!

50°
336w ago - Shortly following NZHawk's release, cyberfix has now shared HERE his own twist on a PS3 SAK merging utility... namely PS3 SAK Export And File Merger Plus v0.1.0.0!

Requirements:
Windows 2000 & XP (Vista?)
Microsoft .NET runtime v2.0
Unzip and run the executable

Prologue:
This program was inspired by the batch file that NZHawk wrote to combine SAK exported ISO images. After looking over the batch file, I noticed it was doing a binary combine at the DOS command level. NZHawk requested somebody convert it to VB, but I decided to do something similar in VC# since I have not coded in VB for some time.

Instructions:
The program is self explanatory. You choose the source directory with the BROWSE button. Then, it will show a list of files in that directory. Any files with the extension .A? will be selected automatically (these are the SAK export files). You can select or deselect any files...
 

WIP: Downgrade your PS3 version without previous dumps!

100°
336w 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.
