197w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer of London Studios has posted up this week's SingStar SingStore PS3 release update today.
To quote: As always, you can find the full tracklisting below so I will keep this one short and sweet. There's some more Lionel Richie (if you didn't think the SongPack was enough) with 'You Are' and Truly' plus cool tracks from the awesome Wolfmother, Pixi Lott, The Human League and Desmon Dekker. All in all, a nice little mix, don't you think!?
The best thing ever this week however is the rockin', rollin' Stereophonics SongPack which includes five of their finest hits, from classic 'Maybe Tomorrow' to more recent material such as 'Innocent' and 'Could You be The One?'.
And that's not all folks because with this SongPack we are also launching an exclusive Stereophonics competition. All you have to do is upload a video of yourself performing any of the Stereophonics tracks from the SongPack to MySingStar Online and you'll automatically be entered into the competition.
Keep on checking the blog, ingame and singstargame.com for more info, prizes and another very special Stereophonics announcement.

Essentially what it does is modify the PS3's hypervisor adding two calls for reading/writing to all of the system memory.
To quote: "In the interest of openness, I've decided to release the exploit. Hopefully, this will ignite the PS3 scene, and you will organize and figure out how to use this to do practical things, like the iPhone when jailbreaks were first released. I have a life to get back to and can't keep working on this all day and night.
Please document your findings on the psDevWiki. They have been a great resource so far, and with the power this exploit gives, opens tons of new stuff to document. I'd like to see the missing HV calls filled in, nice memory maps, the boot chain better documented, and progress on a 3D GPU driver. And of course, the search for a software exploit.
This is the coveted PS3 exploit, gives full memory access and therefore ring 0 access from OtherOS. Enjoy your hypervisor...
201w ago - Today GeoHot has released sample PS3 Linux isolated SPU loader code for those with OtherOS to experiment with.
To quote: "Right now, I'm playing with the isolated SPEs, trying to get metldr to load from OtherOS. Interesting thing, I am not using the exploit. I always assumed the enable isolation mode register was hypervisor privileged.
It's not, it's kernel privileged, which means using hypervisor calls you can all get to it. So, get to hacking. Here is the code I am playing with.
I'm not that opposed to releasing the exploit, but I think the majority of you are going to be disappointed, even if you do get it working. Unless you have pushed the HV to it's limits, this exploit really isn't going to do much for you... yet.
So install OtherOS and start playing around. If people start coming up with convincing reasons why they need the exploit to go further, I'll release it. It's just a waste to release if people can't make use of it.
As far as the GPU goes, I have full access to the GPU memory space 0x2800... But without a driver, it's useless. 3D video card drivers are notoriously hard to write, look at the ATI and NVIDIA ones for linux. The best are still the closed source manufacturer ones.
