PS3 HDD Decrypted: How-to Guides Don't Make it Less Fake!

650°
302w ago - The PS3 HDD getting decrypted is starting to become quite the joke of the week for anyone not blind in both eyes.

At first, it seemed like there was some truth to it and many of us were quite excited, as the files looked legitimate.

The files were infact, real. Unknown to many (including [Register or Login to view links]) at the time, they were just from the PS3's flash filesystem that was accessible with a PS3 TEST.

As we dug deeper, we found out that it was all a web of lies, and what little research was done was stolen from knightsolidus by DemonHades.

Uninformed sites are posting a "decryption" How-to Guide that is nothing but a false proof positive. Said method (involving swapping blocks of known encrypted data for unknown), was used by many of our DEVS including NDT and ggparallel...

PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 eSATA HDD Extender Offers Limitless Storage

400°
306w ago - According to pictures below (courtesy of Gemaga, linked above) this eSATA adapter dubbed the PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 latches to the bottom of any PS3 promising connectivity to an external SATA hard disk for some majorly powerful storage capacity.

Sure, there are other ways (such as [Register or Login to view links] or [Register or Login to view links]) of getting massive amounts of bytes onto the PS3.

One can simply swap in a new internal 2.5" SATA into the system, or even just hook up any old USB hard drive with little hassle; however, the latter won't give the same transfer speed as an eSATA.

From the looks of it, the PHE-01 also comes with an additional four USB ports.

Unfortunately, aside from what can be derived from the pictures there aren't any further details on this product yet... time will tell.

New Wireless 60 GHz Standard Promises Ultra-Fast Applications

50°
309w ago - Ultra-high-speed wireless connectivity capable of transferring 15 gigabits of data per second over short distances has taken a significant step toward reality.

A recent decision by an international standards group could help bring this technology to market soon.

To quote: Short-distance 60 gigahertz (GHz) technology could offer many benefits to bandwidth-hungry applications such as high-definition video and high-capacity data storage. The new standard would support extremely fast wireless peer-to-peer connectivity, PC connectivity and High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable replacement.

Among the many potential 60 GHz applications are virtually wireless desktop-computer setups and data centers, wireless home DVD systems, in-store kiosks that transfer movies to handheld devices in seconds, and the potential to move gigabytes of photos or video from a camera to a PC almost instantly.

Industry group Ecma International recently announced a worldwide standard for the radio frequency (RF) technology that makes 60 GHz "multi-gigabit" data transfer possible. The specifications for this technology, which involves chips capable of sending RF signals in the 60 GHz range, are expected to be published as an ISO standard in 2009.

"We believe this new standard...
