To quote from Dukio.com (linked above): Well, I think it's going to be a good framework for any new enthusiastic developer who wish to start in the ever growing PS3 Jailbreak scene. Below are the changelog for the recent refactoring work that has been done by him to his PL3 git.
WIP: rename macros.h.S to pl3.h.S and make it do a lot more stuff
Make send_eth compatible with FUNC_PTR and add a _res variant
Add proper ifndef/define/endif to all .h.S files
Port all payloads to the new pl3.h.S framework
Factor out the code to hook the hvsc instructions into its own file
133w ago - Previously PS JailBreak users were warned not to update to PS3 Firmware 3.42 as it patches the PS3 JailBreak exploit, and today theruler and others on PSX-Scene (linked above) report that PS3 Firmware 3.42 consoles are now hitting retailers which have removed the exploit currently used for PlayStation 3 JailBreaking.
To quote: Several members of this forum and others have been reporting buying brand new PS3 Systems that come with 3.42FW. Systems above 3.41 cannot be jailbroken.
While not all systems in stores are 3.42FW and people have still reported buying 3.40FW systems, the increased reports of 3.42FW systems can only be a sign of things to come with Sony attempting to combat the jailbreak on all fronts, and signals an incoming scarcity of consoles with 3.41 or below.
If you or someone you know buys a system that comes with 3.42 please post as much information as possible in this thread. (Including box description, barcode, other codes, SKU, etc. Pics plz!)
Just got a ps3 160gb from the zellers moonlight madness and it came with 3.42
133w ago - This is another test post for our Member News promoted articles, which includes Gran Turismo 5 v1.02 PS3 update details, a Level 40 Advanced Damage Modeling video and some GT5 PlayStation 3 cheats below.
The GT5 v1.02 patch weighs in at 133MB and is the second update to Gran Turismo 5 within a week.
The first update activated the game’s online mode and added a few tweaks to the user interface, while the second allows the video game to take advantage of Polyphony Digital's upgraded server infrastructure while enabling maximum power and weight restrictions for online races.
Next up, WandaNoOrchestra has shared Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Level 40 Advanced Damage Modeling video via GamersMint.com, to quote:
"Thought Gran Turismo 5 did poor damage modelling? Think again! Since this is a sim and nothing comes without hard work, you will also need to reach a high enough level in order to experience damage at its worst form.
As you can see, this user has reached level 40 in Gran Turismo 5 and has unlocked highly realistic damage modeling for his cars.
134w ago - Today HKKory has shared a video of what he calls a PlayStation Move demo disc exploit via PS3 JailBreak, however, as PSGroove points out the console is already JailBroken so this isn't really an exploit and won't likely lead to anything.
To quote: "The PS3 homebrew news has seemed to slow down, a lot. So I thought I would start making some news. I noticed the demo disc that came with my move, runs off the XMB, and installs demos.
I pondered if the same method could be used for homebrew, or whatever. I backed it up with my manager, and looked in the files. I realized the installs were DATA000.PKG so I renamed a emulator to that, copied it over to move folder, and installed it.
Now I'm not a coder, so I would like to turn this news over to anyone that could make some use of it to further our efforts. But please, remember to credit me, if you work further upon this discovery.
Here are the details:
• Back up Move Demo Disc (10GB)
• Select Install Disc
• Make sure a Disc is in the Drive
• Open Your File Manager
• Open Dev0HD
• Go to folder with rips
• Navigate to BCUS-98263
• D001 - D012 have the pkg files.
• Rename desired .pkg to DATA000.PKG (USE CAPITALS ON THE .PKG)
134w ago - During the past few months the PS3 Break team has released three different Break products, I received several samples from Digitopz.com, including PS3 Break, P3HUB and USB Break, thanks for their support!
PS3 Break Team and Their PS3 JailBreak Product Comparison:
I will talk about them one by one in this post, hope this can help you to choose a Break item in case you have the plan to buy one.
PS3 Break V1.0:
It is the first product from PS3 Break team. It came out in the same time when JailBreak team released their item, or we can say it is a clone of BailBreak. As soon as the first PS3 hacked news released and due to the cheap price of V1.0 compared to JailBreak, we can imagine that lots of guys bought PS3 Break V1.0 in the early days. Unfortunately, many of them didn't get the update one because of the chip problem.
There are two different types of V1.0 released in the market, one is short version and the other is long. I am glad to know that what i got was the short upgradeable one. People who received this style can update as always, but long version can not update because the update button is just no use in the long version.
