Mac OS X Switcher for PS3 BDEmu Drives By Marcocanc is Released

400°
79w ago - Following up on the previous PS3 BDEmu applications, today Marcocanc has made available a Mac OS X Switcher v1.3 for PS3 BDEmu drives.

Download: Mac OS X Switcher for PS3 BDEmu Drives v1.3

To quote from his blog (linked above): Hi folks, today I'm releasing a tool which I wrote a long time ago. This tool allows you change the default slot of a BDEMU drive on Mac OS X. Unfortunately, as OS X 10.8 doesn't allow raw HDD access to normal users anymore, you'll have to launch it as root if you're a 10.8 user (a tool that makes this very easy is available for free HERE).

OS X versions below 10.8 aren't affected by this problem. The names of the games will only show up in the drop-down menu if they were set as "memorandum" during the slot-creation process (or manually using a hex editor). In case the names weren't set, the game-ID is going to be displayed instead. To connect to the HDD, you have to look up its name in the Disk Utility (e.g. if the disk is called disk3, the path is going to be...

Rumor: 3K3y - PS3Key (ODD) XKey for PS3 Consoles is Incoming

1300°
79w ago - Following up on the previous Blu-ray drive emulation rumor, today modrobert has announced that 3K3y, a PS3Key (ODD) - essentially an XKey for PS3 - is incoming shortly with some preliminary details outlined below.

Still can't get too excited at requiring additional hardware to play PS3 games with the advent of PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware a few years ago though.

To quote from EurAsia (linked above): I just got word from a well known team that will make PS3 owners happy!

Watching the video and drooling!! With those few words I hope to keep you interested...

Below is a picture (via facebook.com/x360key) as well.

More info while waiting for the video: In order to retrieve the needed BD drive key, Team 3k3y (aka xk3y) will release a PS3 software tool which requires CFW 3.55, after the key is dumped the PS3 can be upgraded to latest official system update (firmware/XMB) to get PSN etc.

The team is exploring other options to dump the required key as well, more on that later.

I'm relatively sure it does support original discs as well, but will confirm it anyway. Pretty much same functionality as xkey.

1150°
79w ago - Hello peeps, following up on my previous update here is a new Mugen Pack for you I call my Super Mugen Bundle for PS3 Paintown!

I was up all night re-routing commands and making sure the characters I picked would work. Now in this download there are four folders an one read-me file (which is pretty much this whole post) This is the best pack I've done so far so I hope you all enjoy it.

To install just go to ''dev_hdd0'' ''game'' ''paintown_'' ''USRDIR'' ''data'' then ''mugen'' and DELETE your folders called ''chars'' ''data'' ''font'' ''stages'' (don't delete your music folder by accident) and replace them with the ones you've downloaded.

I've been up for like 24 hrs sourcing the characters and getting this to run so smooth I hope you all have loads of fun with this everyone!

Here's a video of the bundle in action...





And the download link...
