550°
204w ago - A few weeks back Dominator7 made a guide on how to port / convert plain payload files for USB JailBreak dongles, and today garyopa at PSX-Scene has posted news of an ATMega16A Payload Injector [Register or Login to view links] for PS3 JailBreak devices including PSGroove.

Download: ATMega16A Payload Injector v1.01

To quote: A lot of people that have bought the original PSJailbreak, or the various cheap clones, have been left in the dark with the old basic first public release of PSGroove that the cloners had burned into their ATMega16A chips that been widely used in the dongles that have been sold!

But of course with no bootloader burned in for future use, you can't update them to support the latest and greatest of the new payloads that have appeared like the Hermes V4b, and the very useful PL3 versions!

Along comes ATMega16A Payload Injector Project which originally started out as forum thread on Elotrolado, the very active Spanish site, with lots of good talented PS3 Developers!

So far on their Web site, they have lots of...
 

Project: RichDevX PSGroove Payload for PS3 Service Mode

1000°
209w ago - Today French site PS3Gen.fr (linked above) reports news of a project RichDevX is working on where a PSGroove payload is utilized for examining PS3 Service Mode.

To quote, roughly translated: "RichDevX tells us about his progress with his playload to put the PlayStation 3 in service mode and recently released two snapshots of progress.

It is indeed working on a payload to get the console into service mode and be able to launch a file. Choke on every boot via a USB key and others.

As shown in this first image, we can see the red box on the XMB showing that the console actually went into service mode. In this mode, it is possible to run specific software, including one allowing the downgrade (the opposite of update, ie back to a previous firmware).

OtherOS who says so says downgrade option of going back 3.15 for benefit of OtherOS plus most of the hack with PSGroove.

Payload through this, it is also possible to run each time you start the console, loading a file. Self from a USB key as explained above. This could allow the hack using only one time a dongle or other, then your USB stick could complete the task alone. Advances in the underground world push the limits even further, watch this."

Finally, those who haven't heard about the PlayStation...
 

Project: Attempts Being Made to Re-Enable OtherOS on PS3

850°
210w ago - Update: A video is now available below of a PS JailBreak OtherOS Installer from Sh1m3oN (proof of concept enabling features in the PS3 XMB) with some details on how to do it from Reaver at TeknoGods.

Recently C4PT started a [Register or Login to view links] in attempt to re-enable OtherOS on JailBroken PS3 consoles, as you have the option to run your own selfs on them.

To quote: "C4PT has successfully gotten the OtherOS installer to run due to this fact. He accomplished this by putting the otheros.self into a backup game's USRDIR folder, renamed it to EBOOT.BIN, and running it.

You can also run it via AerialX's payload off a usb stick, however this hasn't been tested yet.

You will need the otheros.bld on a usb stick in the directory PS3/OTHEROS/otheros.bld, as otheros.self will try to load this file. This whole process completes successfully, but unfortunately that's where the good news ends.

This will need a lot more hacking to accomplish re-enabling OtherOS, as the otheros menu is still hidden from view on the XMB. This will require some sort of flash hacking to accomplish. The easy part has been done, now the...

Project PS3P Announced, PSP Emulation on PS3 in Development

800°
211w ago - Today dimmudroid has announced news of what is currently being developed as Project PS3P on [Register or Login to view links], which aims to offer PSP game emulation on Sony's PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: "I'd like to announce a project i've been working on, PS3P. Basically it's the ability to load PSP games on PS3.

As you may know, the PS3 can play PSP Minis, which are installed just like any other package. And most PSP games have nearly identical structures and files as PS3 games.

Thus far I've been able to achieve a few steps in the right direction, but I'm not ready to share my work just yet. I've been working on this in my free time (aka outside of work and family) and it will be done when it's done.

If you'd like to know more, or keep on the up and up, feel free to find me on http://twitter.com/dimmudroid

I may need a few alpha testers soon, I'll post requirements and such later today."
