175w ago - Update: According to several members (including jensen76, evilsperm, and sk group) when you downgrade a PS3 with the Modified 3.41 PUP (below), it currently cripples the Blu-ray player functionality. Some additional PS3 Blu-ray fix updates are outlined HERE, however, a more stable solution is still being worked on.

To quote from garyopa on one work-around: "I was able to restore one machine I had, by copying over all the files I had in the /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3 back to the HDD, that I had saved before when it was on v3.41"

Forum member p666 also has expanded on the PS3 Blu-ray fix a bit HERE...

178w ago - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene reports that Maximus has released AnyHex for pre-compiled ATMEL PS3 hex codes to convert them into flashable binaries for PIC18F devices along with some videos.

Download: Maximus AnyHex HID 2.0 / Maximus Generic Fix / Maximus AnyHex HID 2.0 Generic Fixed / HEXTOOL v1.0

To quote from the official site: Porting the .hexes from the daily new payloads is taking me more time than I expected, and since you deserve a faster port of the payloads to the PIC18F devices I decided to invest some time in a new HID Loader 2.0 with a new "any hex" Import Feature, basically with this you dont need to wait never for me to port the payloads to the MAXAVRUSB 1.2 32KB or to the PIC18FUSB devices.

Just do the Import of the .hex from any ATMEL device (Teensy suggested) and the new application will convert to the PIC format. I have tested with kakaroto, psn yes, hermes, etc. Consider this new feature as BETA. CLICK...
