161w ago - Following up on his previous work, this weekend Spanish PS3 developer PS3MrEnigma has released source code for a PS3 tool that can be used to test and obtain model version data (20/40/60/80 etc) on various PlayStation 3 systems.
To quote, roughly translated: "In this post I introduce a small tool that will allow us to know more about the model of our machines.
The usefulness of this tool is simply to show on screen the data returned by the SYSCALL 0 Ã– 363 with the parameter 0 Ã– 19004 to get the model and submodel, make that application to accurately check all machines possible that the data. We returned in byte 5 and byte 7 always correspond in the case of same model and submodel machine.
Bearing in mind that I could only have access to 4 machines when performing the post explaining the SYSCALL 0 Ã– 363 , which is why as many people can give their feedback or report on the blog with the data and specifying what type of machine has (Slim or Phat, and submodel (60, 40, etc)) together with the data we created the tool would be easier to...

162w ago - Here is my quick x3Max PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip review, which I got from their official site linked above.
My story begins as I'm listening to speedcore on my computer and conducting business. Suddenly there's a knock at my door - I peer out the window to see a large van on the street.
I get up and answer the knocking only to discover a lady with a clipboard. She illustrates her desire for my signature and while this is happening I start to remember that I had ordered some samples.
After I politely signed my signature she proceeded to hand me a large DHL bag. We part ways and I enter my computer room, from here I proceed to open the bag only to discover a padded envelope.
I gaze upon it and begin to tear though it and I eventually discover what appears to be my JailBreak sample! Happily I open the resealable plastic, and on my computer I open up PS3News.com eager to write this lovely review!
ANYWAYS! This x3Max JailBreak came in an ugly box which featured a guy with tomato sauce on his face playing his PS3 - I have no idea why they used this, when their Web site has a picture of some hot girl holding a ps3 controller.
