116w ago - This weekend godai has made available a PS3 CFW Fix for PlayStation 3 3.6+ FW PSN title Limbo (NPUB30373), which now works on PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 including Kmeaw, Waninkoko CFW and with multiMAN PS3 Backup Manager.
This news comes just two weeks since the Sony PS3 Full 3.60 SDK and NPDRM keys were leaked by JoHNAaRoN.
To quote: Limbo is a black and white puzzle-platforming adventure that puts players in the role of a young boy traveling through a hostile world in an attempt to discover the fate of his sister.
1) Install limbo_demo.pkg
2) Copy folder LIMBO to your GAMES folder
3) Run Multiman and select Limbo game
4) Start Limbo from */app_home/PS3_GAME/ option. Do not start limbo from XMB Link created when you installed demo.pkg, because this is the...
134w ago - Similar to Brink for PS3, LA Noire now has a retail update patch v1.01 built with Sony's 3.5 SDK that allows users to run the PlayStation 3 game on PS3 Custom Firmware including Kmeaw and Rebug CFW via MultiMAN.
142w ago - Recently Graf_Chokolo revealed that he is working on a PS3 3.55 HV CFW, which will have dual boot Linux built in.
To quote from Dukio: I plan to implement dual boot feature in HV, just like i did on my PS3 3.41, and you can boot with it either gameos or linux or some other system like freebsd. You won’t need any bootos on gameos for that. I will also patch HV and enable more features
I will do it on PS3 slim, first i will resize HDD and add a partition for Linux there
Expect more features coming in as the HV patching continues. Oh, and he is working on a 3.55 FW only at the moment, although on the newer firmware versions is possible according to graf.
Now for 3.55, on other version offsets are different so the code is the same but offsets to patch are different.
When ask about the progress of his lawsuit and if he requires more legal funds, graf_chokolo had to say this:
It's very slow, for now it’s enough i think, thanks.
I have no huge news yet regarding lawsuit but soon I think I will have.
149w ago - Another update from graf_chokolo and Marcan42 who are working to bring OtherOS back to PS3, to quote:
I managed to boot an unencrpyted LV2 kernel from VFLASH. The decrypted LV2 kernel from Service JIG just made some strange sounds for several seconds and then did shutdown Normal unencrypted LV2 kernels boot normally. We could kick out lv2ldr from HV completely and boot enencrypted LV2 kernel always Working now on Linux bootloader. Stay tuned.
I didn’t use default.spp to boot decrypted LV2. I patched HV process which loads LV2 kernel, kicked out lv2ldr, replaced the function which loads lv2_kernel.self with my own code which loads just any OS from a VFLASH region It can be either petitboot, LV2 kernel or something else And dual boot is also possible with this approach. We could store several kernels on VFLASH and decide at boot time which one to boot.
And yesterday i found also out how to enable all debug and log messages in HV and HV procs and actually see these log messages Expect more soon. And greetings to SONY I will try today to boot decrypted 3.56 LV2 on my 3.41 PS3
If you could upload a binary image of AsbestOS for me please, i could test booting it today from VFLASH. Thanks.
