    PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.50 - 3.60 Updates Leaked

    Over the last few days several new PS3 Debug / Test Firmware updates have been leaked outside of Sony Dev and have surfaced publicly courtesy of Cairobeta and ConsoleDev, however, no new SDK files have yet since the previous PS3 3.41 SDK file leak.

    Download: PS3 SDK / Tools Leak Thread / PS3 Debug / Test Firmware Updates / PS3Gen and Guides

    It's important to note that these PS3 Debug/TEST updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so it is intended for examination and comparison purposes only unless you own a Dev unit.

    For those curious, running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

    Usually from people on the inside at Sony or from their Press FTP servers, but nah this won't lead to a new PS3 CFW for Retail consoles.

    i am by no means a programmer or developer of any kind, but would someone be kind enough to try to explain why this wouldn't lead to CFW for retail consoles?

    many thanks

    Two fold - for this to run, there are certain flags inside the system that can't be changed without Sony's keys. Furthermore, any JB'd system now can access more things than on a debug box.

    well that's too bad that no new sdk tools didn't leak... i think that would have been a little more useful... lmao hopefully it might lead to more supported games on cfws? *crossing fingers*
