    Maybe, the driver isnīt 100% compatible with the BD device, but the most important itīs get access to the FW to modify it.

    I'm not sure what DemonHades next step is, but looking forward to hearing more on this project.

    For those who missed it the PS3 Blu-ray drive's Firmware was dumped by several users on a few different version consoles quite some time ago... here is a link to the various dumps, but of course they are all encrypted:

    since this is the actual ps3 bd-drive surely it can access that hidden part of the blu ray disc with the boot flags that cannot be dumped by normal bd-drives, so using the ps3 drive to make a disc image maybe it could make a true 1:1 copy.

    what do you think?

    You could access the disc but you would not have a cheap viable option to burn a 1:1 image back without expensive disc mastering hardware.

    ^ But do you surrender?

    mmm would you go about dumping fw by controlling the bd drive?

    great newz!!! we can already make a backup of ps3 games under linux on ps3. the principal interest is the possibility to dump the firmware and maybe work on a hacked firmware... no?

    Okay, nice. But if they know something to "flash" the drive, there is only a few problems.

    We need to have an blu-ray recorder to record the thing on the disk. Which is the second problem because the disks are very expensive. And then you have the poor internet connection, if you wan't a game and its online. if you gonna download it, it will take ages to get it. And you need an large harddisk because the games are 20 gig or more.
