Launch Java Homebrew from the PS3 XMB; Not an Exploit!

50°
315w ago - Tmaster let us know at the link above that silenoz has found a way to run simple Java games on the PS3 with the BD-J (Blu-ray Disc Java) functionality.

To quote silenoz: I've managed to launch a simple Java game on Game OS, with the BD-J functionality, thanks to the HDCookBook project. You just need to copy some files on a USB key and you're good to go.

Steps to launch Blaster Bunny, pictured below, are as follows:

1) Download it HERE and UnZip it.
2) Copy it to the root of a USB/Flash drive.
3) Go to the device in the video menu and launch "AVCHD".
4) Go to BONUS and click GAME to launch Blaster Bunny.

It has also been confirmed that this method has been working on all PS3's regardless of Firmware and region, including 2.41 apparently, and it's likely to work for other Java Virtual Machine games.

Finally, we'd like to clarify to PS3 newbies that this is not an exploit nor will it lead to non-Java PS3 homebrew, etc as CJPC detailed HERE... anyone stating otherwise is completely clueless!
 

Rumor: Possible Hardware Exploit in PS3 Controller?

300°
316w ago - Manucc1, a member of Spanish community Elotrolado (linked above), believes there may be a possible PS3 exploit in the PS3 Controller... although SIXAXIS or DS3 is not specified, and it could work in a similar manner to the Pandora Batteries in the PSP.

This claim is based primarily on speculation that in the PS3 controller there is a chip that is the same as on PSP, and it is alleged to control Firmware in some fashion.

Info on the chip is available HERE, and a list of IC chips in PS3 is available HERE.

This EEPROM chip may allow Firmware to be installed (when you install Firmware on PS3, you always have to use the controller... before 2.1, you had to plug the controller in via USB).

For those who don't speak Spanish, they are currently looking into the contents of the chip and seeing whether this will lead to anything more.. but have long way to go yet.
 

Resistance: FoM Network Update Vulnerability

100°
338w ago - As you know, the Resistance: Fall of Man game updates via PlayStation Network. The resident PS3 Devs (Subdub and Gigi) discovered this nearly 6 months ago and others (Placa, to name just one) soon after, it's just another rehash of the old Warhawk method (detailed here and here), but more constrained.

For example, using the Warhawk hole users could change directories, in the R:FOM one you can't. In layman's terms, it means this R:FOM method is even more limited/useless than the Warhawk one was. Of course to those who just recently discovered it- this is being incorrectly labeled as something useful when it sadly isn't at all.

However, since Sony plugged the Warhawk hole in a past Firmware Update, most of the devs opted to keep quiet until tonight... as now this hole will certainly be addressed in an upcoming Firmware Update as it is indeed a security issue to Sony.

It's a fairly simple method. Using your favorite DNS "hijack" method, or proxy server redirect download-prod.online.scea.com...
 

Latest PS3 Firmware 2.10 Update blocks RSX exploit?

50°
345w ago - Many users are reporting that the latest PS3 Firmware v2.10 may well have cancelled a potential RSX exploit that allowed full GPU access on the PS3.

It is no secret that Sony likes to tackle against any potential hacks, and if this is true it would be a discouragement to further Linux development under full GPU access on the PS3.

As always, only time will tell for sure...
