Download: PS3 Debug Firmware v3.20 (USA) Update

Courtesy of deathriders, PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.20 includes 3D Video Output and OtherOS support (unlike PS3 Firmware v3.21) and bugfixes among other updates detailed below, and if you haven't done so yet be sure to check out the PS3 TEST / TOOL Debug Game Backup Guide and PS3 Debug Link Database.

Changes from the PS3 Debug Firmware 3.20 Update ReadMe File include:

New Features - System Software (GUI)
• The resolution for 3D video output has been supported. In this release, the 3D rendering is supported by the following features:
• Features that support the 3D rendering:
• Features that the system displays such as the system software that is displayed when the PS button is pressed during gameplay(GUI), or notification or error messages displayed on the upper right on the screen
• Features that do not support the 3D rendering: System utilities that are explicitly called by game applications such as the save data

Note that the display may be corrupted in all GUIed system utilities when the 3D resolution is set.

Menu of the System Software (GUI)
• [Settings] -> [Debug Settings] -> [3D Video Output]: [Automatic]/On

Do not use this menu item because it is only available on the devkit.

Specification Changes - Check menu in the Game column
• The following specification changes have been mage in the check that is available from the Check menu in the Game column:
• It is now allowed to mix a library for SDK320 and a library for SDK310.
• It now warns if the SDK version of the SPU is smaller than that of the PPU.
• The automatic setting feature now supports the resolution for the 3D video output through Display Settings -> Video Output Settings. To output a 3D video, make sure to set the Display settings again.

Also, do not forget to select "HDMI" for the TV terminal and "Automatic" for the resolution from the Display Settings.

well i think the cheapest way to get 3D is:

1) Buy NVIDIA 3D glasses (200-400$)
2) Buy 24-29" SAMSUNG Screen with 120-200ghz (300-700$)

and full amount is (700-1500$)
and that's it! You got it!

A couple of interesting links regarding the 3D support, seems like there is going to be a second firmware upgrade for 3D support in BR movies.

Thing to know (Flash required);

A bit more on the technology behind it;

Sony Bravia 3D HDTVs;

If 3D is cool, it looks like I might have to invest in a new TV.

I just hope Sony focus on all gaming in these new models and still puts effort into getting the "input lag" in their "game modes" to a very minimum....

I can also confirm debug/test 3.20 firmware does have other OS intact unlike retail 3.21 which removes Other OS support. You can upgrade if you have a debug unit. Let's say 3.20 removes other OS, you can always downgrade back to lower firmware up to 2.00 on debug unit. If you want to go lower than 2.00, you need the special 1.50 and 1.00 firmware for debug.

Nope you can still install other os in 3.20, maybe your getting confused with the new retail fw 3.21 which releases 1st april which entirely removes other os support. sorry for language english isn't my first.

Anyone know if the new debug firmware (FW3.20) disables other os support? Just a little curious before i try it.

LCD TV simply does not have high enough vertical reflesh rate to do 3D. My bet is you need at least a LED TV to enjoy 3D on PS3 when the firmware comes out.

Most likely Philips will release an upgrade kit if not only a firmware upgrade in order to enable 3D capabilities on her 8000 and 9000 series, if you have a 200hz and Philips this means you have a 9000 series that could, I'm saying "could" benefit of this (spoken) upgrade...

@Loki Death: I don't think so... sorry...
