Actually, my girlfriend updated my 2nd JB PS3 because she wanted to watch Netflix. I'm stuck with OFW until the 3.6X keys are out >_<

Proof that women and technology don't mix

My guess is because most end-users (developers excluded) seem to dwell on how to play the newest PS3 games for free, rather than things that have been around like PS1/PS2 games, emulators, etc.

I guess at least they are being honest... other PS3 homebrew is always nice, but I don't think the day will come when their interest in it exceeds that of getting the 0-day games working without paying for them.

Why the heck are all wining about 3.6x cfw. When news popup on any site about PS3, I see people say "no 3.6x cfw or keys , the ps3 scene is dead" i'm tired of this.

ThaNX for this wonderful news about Disable PS3 Cinavia DRM check.

From the PS3 Debug Firmware v3.55 update you would use a PUP file extractor / unpacker to obtain the files inside it. If you Search either the News Archive or Site Downloads here you will see a lot of different ones, below are links to some of them:


If you want to unpack the resulting files further, then you could try something like Matercrack PS3 Dev_Flash PUP Packer / Unpacker.
