Rumor: PS3 Hello World Homebrew Method Found?!

200°
329w ago - Dragula96 has posted a video (below) on YouTube today that demonstrates a PS3 "Hello World" Proof-Of-Concept.

Needless to say, today is the day before April 1st (April Fool's Day), however, dragula96 has been a long-standing contributer of several development boards (including PS2Dev) for several years... so we have opted give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being and dubbed this a "rumor"

He also states he is attempting to get a game of Pong working, and that he will share the method and source code in time.





According to dragula96, this does not require any hardware modification and the method has been tested on a PS3 40GB and 60GB console- both of which have current 2.20 Firmware and are retail models, not development models!

To quote: In the video, you can see some tape on my TV, that is to hide MAC and IP addresses... there are no cuts in video at all.

I have spent somewhere around 9 hours to get this working, and I hope you guys don't think this is a fake.. I have a good reputation in the PSP scene. I would not release something if it was fake (even if it is close to April Fool's Day).

I do not know the extent of which the discovery will let me program, but I seriously...
 

Wii Homebrew Channel Demo video available!

331w ago - Twiizers have released video footage demonstrating the loading of a Wii homebrew channel.

As you can clearly see in the video clip above, the Twilight Hack loads and reboots to the standard Wii channel menu with a copy of the Mii channel icon located at the bottom.

The original Mii channel icon, still intact, boots to the real Mii channel if selected, while the copied icon loads a homebrew application when pressed.

332w ago - Twiizers have updated their infamous Wii Twilight Hack with support for loading homebrew applications directly from the console's front SD card slot.

Additionally, the updated release adds support for the RZDJ version of Twilight Princess and SDGecko slot support has been removed in favor of USBGecko.

Download: Wii Twilight Hack v0.1 Alpha 3a

Changelog:

0.1alpha3a
- Correctly loads geckoloader code from USBGecko flash

0.1alpha3
- Front SD slot is now supported; SDGecko slot support has been removed.
- FAT16 is now supported; you should save your ELF executable on your SD card as "boot.elf".
- RZDJ is now supported
- Added support for Geckoloader stub: If you have a USBGecko installed and have already run the Geckoloader program to install into flash, then the Twilight Hack will try to load that stub if it does not detect an SD card.
 

Homebrew Pong running in Wii mode!

50°
336w ago - Just a few days ago, the Zelda: Twilight Princess exploit for Wii opened up the possibility to boot homebrew in Wii mode through a buffer overflow method.

Now homebrew developer Auby has extended this hack to load an ELF version of his PONG game which runs in Wii mode.

To quote: Current work in progress have made it possible to run ELF files from an SD card inserted in the GC card slot, and this is the result.

It's just my old Pong demo written for GameCube a long time ago. Controls doesn't work yet, and there are more to fix before a release, but at least things are moving forward.
 

Why the PS3 still isn't hacked

400°
339w ago - "Why isn't the PS3 broken already?" We hear this every day. Someone somewhere thinks they can write a better media player with HD support. A guy wants to release his game but needs the RSX for the amazing graphics it can generate. Why can't we just tear open the PS3 solder a few wires and be done with it? The answer is both simpler and more complicated than you might expect.

The PSP, the Wii, even the Xbox 360 have all been hacked and can run homebrew applications so everybody thinks "the PS3 should be just as easy." The PS3 in some ways is as easy, in fact easier. No other console let you install Linux and run anything you want to. Sure Linux on the PS3 is great. You can write your own code and use it. You have the largest collection of applications anywhere (thats right, WAY more than Windows). It's all free (or at a very low cost).

But it's limited. You can't touch the RSX (The very powerful graphics chip in the PS3), you can't use the full hard drive, and nothing is really optimized for the PS3's fantastic Cell processor, this means that what should be fast and easy tends to be slow and cumbersome. In fact, DVD playing which can be done on any modern computer is a monumental task in PS3 Linux.

The major problem is that the PS3 isn't any other console. The PS3 is different...
