Is it at all possible that there is some alternative to these ports undocumented in the manual? Seems too valuable to the manufacturer to have the function completely removed.

Im not surprised about that sunny have blowen the JTAG ports on retail machines and i remember back to the beginning where we have discovered that the BD FW is also present in the PS3īs FW.Ok we can swap packs of the fw and flash it back so we could get the hacked bd fw into the ps3īs fw to mach the drives fw but..how to resign?With what key?Does any one have discovered the PS3 puplic key?
I dono belive that sunny after all this havy securing have put in a UNSIGNED fw for the bd drive.
And even some one have discovered the puplic key we dono need to know about it till it could be used to do nice things with it.
After all...does tmbinc screamed out the info about the JTAG exploit for the x360 without the knowledge to use it?Or have he released the news together with a vid showing that it could be used to altere the machine?
Still.. being able to back up a PS3 game would have a devastating outcome if not used properly *Piracy*.. Tho it would be great to be able to back up your games.. knowing the original BD would be kept safe as long as possible.
Wenas chicos,gracias por el video chakkal
Anoche hable con cjpc amigo y admin de ps3news,y aparte de estar ayudandome me comento que el tambien iva a testear el puerto,tambien he recibido 1 privado de gente que quiere colaborar poniendo material importante como analizadores logicos digitales y osciloscopios de gran precision para colaborar en la investigacion.
Asi que,si cjpc me comento que el tambien iva a testear el puerto..dudo mucho que lo conozcan de antes,es mas la unica constancia que tengo sobre la informacion expuesta en internet habla del puerto o faja flex que comunica el lector con la placa,la cual tambien tiene un 2 puntos,TX y RX.
De hecho tengo una imagen de como es el jig usado en el sat de sony el cual usan el conector de la faja para realizar los test,y aunque hablamos de 2 puertos distintos...pues creo que es interesante saberlo
1saludo y graciasWenas guys, thanks for the video chakkal
Last night a friend and talk to cjpc admin ps3news, and besides be helping me also commented that the vat to test the port, I've also received 1 private from people who want help making important material as digital logic analyzers and oscilloscopes for high precision work in research.
So, if cjpc also told me that the vat to test the port .. I doubt I know him from before, is but the only record I have about the information posted on internet talk port or flex strip that connects the reader with the plate, which also has a 2-point, TX and RX.
I actually have an image like the jig used in the Sony sat which use the connector to perform the test strip, and although we talk of 2 different ports ... as I think it is interesting to know
1saludo and thanks
Well, my spanish language skills are non-existent, but my side of the conversation entailed - if you know of a JTAG - test it. Hook up a scope/LA, see what kind of signal your getting, and attempt to JTAG the thing.
Which, we did already try - it does not work - but never hurts for someone else to try it - assuming you somehow have a super special BD drive that wasn't blown at the factory, but the odds of that - well, you have a better chance hacking into the PS3 with a string and a paper clip!

Hello guys, thanks for the video chakkal.
Last night i talked with CJPC, besides helping me he told me that he will test the JTAG port, i have received 1 private (message forum? i guess) of a lot of people who wants to help me with osciloscopes wih great precision to colaborate with this project.
So, CJPC told he will test the port too.. i highly doubt they knew it before (the port)... the only thing that is exposed in internet talks about the port or ((1))bus that conect the BD Drive with the PCB, wich also have TX and RX points.
Besides, I have a picture of the JIG used in S0ny's Repairing Station (they called SAT wich is the place who receives the PS3's in warranty) and they use the conector of the bus named early((1)) to do some test, even if we are talking about two diferent ports it interesting to know something about it.
Sorry if i have some mistakes.
Man i really hope that this could lead to something good like what we have for the Wii and the Xbox 360. This sounds promising. I was wondering when some one would figure this out!!! If we could find a usefull hack i def. get a bluray burner i mean the blank disc are def cheaper then cheaper then having to buy every game.

What demonhades is saying is that the connector that connects the drive to the ps3's mobo has already been documented (the pinout's)
And that this one is "new" i.e. new to the internet.... though the fact remains the same that this has long been known even though not disclosed to the general public..
Maybe it's not useless... Maybe someone decides to probe his/her PS3 and finds a way to re enable them (hardware-wise) or find another way to access the BluRay reader. It's a start, at best.
Like I said in my previous post, we tried the JTAG(s) nearly a year ago - with no success!
