1150°
188w ago - Today megahiperultrafantas and Psmaniaco posted [Register or Login to view links] and a video on Spanish site Elotrolado (linked above) on how to remarry PS3 Blu-ray Disc (BD) drives to other consoles.

To quote, roughly translated: "We are the fantastic ultra hyper Mega Team. We have modified. Self and made impossible... The way to solve the problem the reader is:

First, downgrade to firmware 2.30 (you know how), then we launch the console normally (thus leaving the service before) and set the time, date, language and others.

Second: Go back to start the service mode.

In the stick, unzip the contents of the zip in the root of this.

Put the USB flash drive in the far right and turn on the PS3... will see something new on screen, when you see that makes drive init blue with a circle on the right is that it has been restored key in the reader.

We let you reinstall the 2.30 and also is configured to read all the films on bluray region free.

Exit the service mode (with the lv2diag FILE 2) and we have ready the reader by reading the games, except if we have the laser damaged.

Well, from here on out if you crack a controller bluray or ps3 you have two, one with...
 

JaicraB's Patched LV2Diag.self, Skip Blu-ray Drive for PS3 Updates

550°
194w ago - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released a patched LV2Diag.self file which allows users to skip the Blu-ray drive 'BD FIRMWARE' and 'Blu-ray Disc Player Revoke List' steps while doing PS3 Firmware updates.

Download: JaicraB's Patched LV2Diag.self for PS3

To quote, roughly translated: I modified the Lv2diag.self with the sole purpose of being able to put an UPDATE without having to rely on the reader. It is one more step to take advantage of flaws in the PS3 controller BD.

The change is based on skip two steps in the upgrade process. "BD FIRMWARE" and "Blu-ray Disc Player Revoke list." Whose patches are:

0x3CF0 offset = 0x419E0044
offset = 0x48000034 0x3C50

This allows you to skip the two functions related to the BD-Drive. Avoid the error and let the system continue to update.

Still not solved the problem without running Hombrews reader. I hope a solution comes soon. Yet the purpose of this is not piracy, but a step to the console without reader scene.

USE

  • Activate Service Mode.
  • Copy the root of the USB Lv2diag.self entered.
  • Copy the root file update PS3UPDAT.PUP desired.
  • Turn on the PS3 with the USB port inserted in 0 (the...

 

Rumor: Sony to Combat PS3 Piracy with Blu-ray Disc Serial Keys

1300°
196w ago - Previously we reported on a PSN ban rumor which was followed by speculation on preventing bans, and today Dutch site PS3-Sense (linked above) claims that according to [Register or Login to view links] Sony plans to combat PS3 piracy with Blu-ray disc serial keys.

Similar to what's been done with PC games in the past, when you buy a PS3 or PSN game you'll get a serial key with it which you can use up to 5 times.

This gives Sony a signal that you are authorized to play the game and that you have a legal copy of the game, and the serial key only works with the same Blu-ray disc with the same serial number.

To quote, roughly translated: "From a very reliable source (SKFU) we have heard a striking new feature of the PS3. The feature would be present even at the PlayStation Network but is currently still hidden.

It is a serial system which Sony will soon start working on. Since the root keys are on the street you can see every homebrew tool (including backup...

This is just a first come first serve, don't use this because you will lose JailBreak. This is nice to use for the fact that it puts the apps_home and game install and homebrew folder on your xmb, this has been done by, ACID, REBUG, and myself. Although we haven't made them into PUPs, you can certainly add the app_home, and install folder to XMB.

Try it Before You Buy it. If you don't like it Return. That being said, try CFW Retail just use comgenie to transfer files from your dev_flash folder to you usb folder and replace /vhs folder with one provided. Then run a custom usb loader of your choice.

PUP coming soon, that should re-enable blu-ray. Am busy testing so be patient

1. New fixes to xmb moved a few more things around
2. Did not take...
 

DRLTools DRLGen v0.90 - Easy PS3 Blu-ray Playback Fix Arrives

750°
198w ago - A few weeks ago among some other work-arounds we reported on a project aiming to fix PlayStation 3 Blu-ray drives for those who downgraded their console, and today the group has released DRLTools DRLGen v0.90 suite offering an easy to use PS3 Blu-ray playback fix.

Download: DRLTools DRLGen v0.90 for PS3

From the included ReadMe file:

BACKGROUND

Our quest to restore BD playback for those PS3s that lost it after downgrading continues. Unfortunately our project suffered a serious setback last week when one of our discoveries was prematurely leaked: A potentially harmful and incomplete method to restore BD playback was disclosed by an attention-seeking individual. It should be noted that the fix in question is only a "band-aid" solution to the problem.

There is a very real possibility of future drive revocation resulting in PERMANENTLY broken playback! However, to make using it safer for those who wish to apply it, we have created this collection of DRL Tools. In the meantime we are...
