December 10, 2010 // 10:01 pm - According to a recent SCEI patent, Sony plans to increase the PS3's power with an external processor.

To quote from (linked above): "A Sony patent has hinted that they will release external processors to make the console even more powerful – without the need for a PS4.

The benefits of an upgrade to the PS3 are obvious – allowing for a more powerful machine, without having to pay so much for a new console. However, the “PS3 External Processor” has its drawbacks: it wouldn’t give consumers the same experience as a full new console, and would run the risk of both fragmenting and confusing the market.

The patent expressly states that several external processors may be used:

In accordance with an alternative embodiment, two processor elements may be cascaded by each employing its respective BIC in a coherent symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) interface (or BIF) configuration. The coherent SMP interface (BIF) of each processing element is coupled to one another to set up a coherent interface there between."

This was the only thread on this article I saw yesterday in the member news, if there were dupes they would have likely been merged since we can do that now thanks to our Member News submission system vs our old one. Ah well, at least it got posted, eh?

A "fake" signed is nothing more than a self file made with make_fself_npdrm...(adding the SCE header)...

I guess fself = fake signed elf

I do no really know what they mean with fake signed. The eboots of a sdk can normall only be used on jb. With a debug con you will get a error message when you try to start. But if you patch a flag or the developer have coded it to run on adebug it will do so.

So what exactly is a fake signed eboot.bin?

First of all, thanks for the self loader!

Question: Lets say a certain eboot.bin file prevents loading a .self file due to some checks, and also lets assume that the .self file is properly signed, will this launch that properly signed self file?
