    no you can't modify the drive firmware not even with a modchip... with the modchip (infectus) you can modify "normal" firmware updates, but not the firmware in the blu-ray drive...

    For what its worth, the firmware on the Blu-Ray drive is encrypted- Sony learned their lessons when the 360 got backups running like that!

    The idea is, forgetting that its encrypted is not to write new firmware, just to modify old firmware. Specifically to always return a proper answer on a disk media/valid disk check.

    The firmware, which I know cannot be modified. Only you can touch in the memory flash of her ps3 with a mod-chip, but well that could edit the firmwares of her ps3.

    A greeting to all.

    Not right, we can correct the flash with ECC tool ! This meens we can edit the ps3īs FW !

    EDIT:

    @ CJPC

    does this meen that every game ask for the validation of the BD FW?

    I'm hoping the ECC tool will open up a lot of new fixes, such as getting rid of DVD & BD region coding which is technically illegal here in Australia.
