5w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 developer Habib (aka smhabib) has released what he calls Habib 4.50 DB OFW which allows users to dual-boot going from OFW to play online back to CFW when you so desire.
97w ago - Below is a work-in-progress (WIP) of PS3 3.60+ games booting on PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 3.55 and 3.41 without a dongle for those interested in experimenting further with it.
What you need ?
1- PS3 3.55 CFW Rebug or 3.55/3.41 with Debug
2- Debug Dev_Flash (Also allow to have the debug options on retail)
3- Backup of your own CFW DEV_Flash (make a dev_flash path on your USB Device)
4- A File Manager
5- EBOOT.BIN of your games (also from Paradox)
What you need to know
Rebug normal in Debug mode 2
You need to put your PS3 in boot mode -> debugger mode (and not system software mode)
We're gonna use the debugger mode to debug the self execution we don't need to have NPDRM, anyway the debugger don't know how to Debug the Self NPDRM
Release mode -> Development mode
All the content type configuration -> Development mode
Dongle uses modified sprx/modules/lib related to the Debug files to be loaded when you boot the PS3 on CFW.
Almost all the EBOOT Paradox don't have NPDRM -> it's a simple self (fake sign header) renamed to EBOOT.BIN (like i was explaining many times) -> call function to the debugger -> sprx/modules loader.
120w ago - Similar to the ProgSkeet hardware device for PlayStation 3, today the E3DIY Team have announced that they will be releasing an E3 Flasher for PS3 (produced by Paul Owen and marketed by Gary Wayne Bowser aka GaryOPA) which will feature dual-booting among the options detailed below.
To quote: E3 Flasher, the world first flasher special for PS3, easier backup and downgrade, support dual boot, coming soon!
E3, created miracles on PS3 JailBreak, release free JailBreak, downgrade and goldfinger, and will now release a full new revolutionary E3 Flasher which includes: backup, restore, upgrade, downgrade and dual boot all in one.
PS3 E3 Flasher Features:
NOR FLASH ON board.
1 KEY backup or restore, simple is best.
Dual boot, choose booting from original bios or E3 bios.
3 save MODE, save bios to E3 nor flash, TF card or PC.
NO harm for console, but can longer console life because of specially design.
Integrated lots of interface, perfectly extension, will have more function with future new E3 accessory.
Compatible all slim and fat console, include latest 3000x version.
120w 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...
