this question is basicly towards the devs of this site... i was wondering if on the prototype/debug/TEST ps3 units does the green power light on the ps3 ever turns orange? also have u guys tried the Blu-ray disc emulator, im so intrested on how it works like does the DEBUG ps3 recognize a NTFS formatted USB hdd? if its limiten to fat formatted HDDs that would be pretty retarted.
now from the outside does a debug ps3 have any hardware differances like a extra HDD, or extra ports?
my big hope is if and when you guys dissasamble the debug ps3 youll see that their is no differance in hardware between a first gen retail ps3 and a debug ps3 becides a uniqu key that determins what firmware it can run, either debug fw or retail fw... yes i allready tried to install the leaked 1.80 debug fw, the day it was leaked on my 1.10 FW 1st gen 60gb ps3 (it came with the talladega nights BD).
i know it doesnt work but it does start up on a retail ps3... until i does a hardware check... sooo.... replace the key and wa-la convert retail ps3 into debuggers... but for some reason id rather see a "pandoras memorystick for ps3" but first we need to know how a FW is installed onto a PS3 in the factory or how a FW is written on a blank PS3 FLASH0/FLASH1...
I am into the PS2/PSP/PS3 modding scene. i have 1 PS3 (^^the 60GB) still i the box with 1.10 FW(im never gonna update it until a real hack comes out....) and a first gen 20 GB ps3 always updated to the latest retail FW , i have 2 PSPs running the latest M33 custom FW and i have 2 fat PS2s with the ID exploits and 500GB internal HDDs. i have SNES emulators on all of them.
