December 1, 2010 // 8:52 pm - Today Spanish PS3 developer JaicraB has posted an update on his blog (linked above) of what appears to be a PS3 special execution mode WIP.

With it, he may be able to get the PS3 into service mode (possibly for downgrading and other delightful things) so let us hail him and hope there is more to come for us all.

For those who missed it, a few months back RichDevX also noted some progress in this area using a PSGroove Payload for PS3 Service Mode.

Some pictures are posted below, and to quote roughly translated:

"Look at this...., It seems not only egocentrics know how to do things and then sell their products.

A gift for DemonHades, Happy birthday to you !"

We will see. But mostly we will need a special payload for things like that. On otherhand we now can decrypt self file. Chances that in a few months everything will be possible are high.

Downgrading formats the HDD though right?

Do you have a running thread somewhere that I could follow to see what kind of progress you have made on your CFW?

Sry if i sound like a girl but... what the hell have everyone with this damn CFW?

Something new comes out and plz screaming "Yea maybe CFW!"


I'm working on since weeks and i and my buddys do one step after another. When its done or reach the 1.0 version mark we will work and concentrade on packing to a installable CFW.

So plz stop screaming about for every app to claim or hope of a CFW. It's already done
