It is an FTP Server for the PS3, with it, on a retail with your choice of "hack" to enable unsigned code it allows:
• Full Read/Write access to all of "dev_hdd0" (including save areas, games, VM etc)
• Full Read/Write access to "dev_flash2" and "dev_flash3"
• Full Read/Write access to connected usb devices
• Full Read access to "dev_flash"
• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"
Connect with your choice of FTP client - Prefered is the old "ftp" from the command line, however Filezilla seems to work, allowing only one connection, and disabling PASV support.
Furthermore, the Server does not support some commands (like rename, of all things!) so make sure what you do counts!
Use the IP shown on the screen - make sure to have your net connection up and running before hand (wired is so much faster)
171w ago - Yesterday we reported that Sony halted PS JailBreak Australian sales and distribution, and today OzMods (linked above) confirms PS3 homebrew will still arrive next week while the PS JailBreak folks stand by their claim that the PlayStation 3 modchip contains no Sony code.
Below is an image from the PS JailBreak discussion via ConsoleWinkel.nl and OzMods full statement, to quote:
"28/08/2010 - Hello Everyone. On Friday the 27/08/2010 we where given some documents from the Lawyers representing Sony. The documents are Federal Court orders for a temporary injunction.
The Injunction states that from 24 hours of receiving the documents to the 31st of August OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier and anyone else in Australia:
• Give up all stock in our possession, including our sample
I guess it was lucky that the device was delayed by a couple of days. While many people that have received their sample and sent it off to cloners....we sent ours to a well known homebrew developer.
The developer we picked showed us various homebrew applications that he had already developed for ps3 dev units, that he wants to port over to retail units. Yes, PS3 homebrew...
206w ago - Update: SKFU has now posted the following update: Ok guys, as Mathieulh is a lot more familiar with PSP related stories, thanks to him I can tell you now that my little idea won't work.
The reason is, that the Datel technique requires the application to run as UPDATE. The PSP runs the program in update mode which the PS3 won't be able to emulate at all. So sorry, no PSP homebrew on PS3, at least not via this way.
Today SKFU (linked above) shared a video of Datel's Action Replay running on official PSP Firmware 6.20, which leaves speculation as to whether the cracked PSP encryption process could lead to PSP homebrew on Sony's PS3 console.
Based on SKFU's idea below, we'll stick this in the PS3 Hacks section where PS3 hacks, exploits, mods, projects and ideas are discussed.
To quote: Datel may had success in cracking the PSP's encryption process and sign EBOOT's to run their own software on official firmwares, including the newest and the PSP Go hardware.
Why do I post it as I only focus on PS3 you may wonder, but hey the PS3 just got it's PSP...
Roughly translated, tmaster has concluded the following:
"FW2.50 not start in the BD-J.
Upgrade to stop so we can update orz"
I don't know if Bu-nyan is saying its ok to upgrade or not.
Update: I can confirm that bd-j don't work with 2.50. I tried it on my brothers ps3 and it gives me an error. good thing I still have mine at 2.43 to play java.
Why sony stopped I don't know.. maybe a hack, who knows?
Note: FYI, although most of the PS3 Devs are sleeping CJPC said the following on IRC: "It probably is on, but they may have changed it a bit.. possibly to only work from a pressed bd-rom or some bs, which, still makes 0 sense. bd-j functionality is CORE for any bd player.. at profile 2.0 that the ps3 has (or 1.1, can't recall) so bd-j is not off, something just changed with it."
That being said, it may explain why Bu-nyan and others are reporting BD-J as not working... when...
