122w ago - This weekend French PlayStation 3 developer dudu.clx has shared a PS3A Linux Box v1 PS3 Install Script for OtherOS++ CFW users and some videos documenting the process below.
To quote, roughly translated: To make installing Linux on PS3 simpler and faster, I decided to create the PS3A linux-box . Run the script, and off you go!
The linux installer for PS3 OtherOS++ consists of a series of scripts that will run from petitboot once otheros + + partitions created correctly (success create_hdd_region.sh). It will be regularly updated to correct, improve some support and offer still more versions of Linux.
Requirements for PS3a Linux-box (roughly translated):
122w ago - What started out several months ago as a PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project is slowly nearing completion, with GaryOPA receiving word from PlayStation 3 hacker Cyberskunk alongside a video of Rebug PS3 CFW 100% booting in Debug mode on a Retail PS3 console.
To quote: In this video you can see the PS3 first booting and then BEEPING. This is normal, if someone installs an full official DEBUG PUP via Service Mode on a Retail Console.
Next you see Cyber booting on his PS3 using a USB Jailbreak Dongle! This time the PS3 boots-up and is a fully 100% DEBUG firmware, no crashing or beeping, loads right into the XMB!
This is all possible by the Codename: REBUG team developing their own "custom payload" loaded for usage on the old v3.41 Jailbreak dongles!
From Cyberskunk: Hey Gary, The vid we sent you uses a dongle to boot the DEX COREOS on retail console as we thought that to be more conclusive since you can mimic the DEX XMB quite easily..
We can however boot it without the dongle but before everyone gets excited being able to boot the DEX COREOS and getting all of its functions up and running without rehashing (converting) your console are two completely...
122w ago - Following up on the PS3 NFW 3.55 v2 with v3.70 Spoof Custom Firmware from earlier today, Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm have now released a Rebug PS3 3.70 Version Spoofer 2.0 and Rebug Update Package v0.1 (3.41.3) and v0.3 (3.55.2).
This or any other spoofer won't allow you to play newer Firmware PS3 games or access PSN without updating the PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: THIS DOESNT ALLOW PSN - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK - THIS WILL NOT WORK ON REBUG FIRMWARE
3.70 Version Spoofer 2.0
3.70 Version Spoofer 2.0 is available for 3.41 and 3.55 firmware and is much faster and safer to use than the previous version spoofers. It works like the Rebug Selector and backs up your current files before activating the spoof, then auto reboots leaving no room for end-user error.
INSTALL: Press L1+CROSS to INSTALL 3.70 Version Spoof files to your PS3
ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE: Press L1+CROSS to ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE (System will reboot)
122w ago - Following up on the initial PS3 NFW (Newbie Friendly Ware) 3.55 v2 Custom Firmware which disables Cinavia protection, today bitsbubba has released PlayStation 3 NFW 3.55 v2 Custom Firmware which includes a v3.70 Spoof alongside a handy PS3 NFW PKG Pack.
