December 4, 2010 // 7:41 am - As a follow-up to my PS3 Acid CFW XMB XML Hack Pack, today we are happy to announce that we have enabled more PlayStation 3 Debug options in our ongoing PS3 Acid CFW WIP project and posted a video below.

Here are the details from DeViL303 at (linked above): As you may know, the Acid CFW project was first released on over a month ago by Cfwprophet, and since then its progress is going like a snowball on a big hill !!

We are working on this continously and even in last few hours Cfwprophet and myself have made some great discoveries with regard to Debug options! More news to come so watch this space for more great info about this Custom Firmware for PlayStation 3!

This is a work in progress so any help or ideas you can offer will be gratefully accepted. Big thanks to PSJailBreak team for making all this possible, Hermes and KaKaRaTo for all the payloads, Grimso (you know why!), JaicraB for the Firmloader which is vital at this point, Nev for all the work on this site, PS3 News, CJ and all the other great people over at plus many more.

If we all get together and hack this brilliant piece of technology it will keep getting better and better, who knows where it will stop! Even today there is talk of JailBreak for 3.50FW - WOW! Keep up the good work guys!

It would be nice to be able to play my 3.50 games. I hope this comes out soon and then is reverse engineered to work on my maxamus.

The 3.55 patch is to stop people downgrading.

Yeah looks funny , that it was announced that 3.50 was JB, and suddenly they release the 3.55 patch.

They're (x3MAX team) not full of it. They just hadn't released it yet and now we have the announcement of 3.55 firmware. Maybe they're gonna work on it now and not worry about the 3.50 fix.

The cat and mouse games are getting hot. Sony is getting on their high horse and developers are trying to fight back. I think the jailbreakers looking for online access are gonna be highly disappointed.

Sony is putting out updates to combat all these hacks for PSN. It might be safe to say that the short few days for jailbreak on PSN was quite possibly the last. We can still hold out hope though.

it was 72 hours until the "announcement" they are probably full of it and only said they had a jailbrak for 3.50 because of all the other stuff going on in the scene because they wanted to try and sell more dongles.

but we will see what happens. will they deliver the goods or turn out to be liars? who knows, but if they do have a 3.50> solution you can bet there will be a free sloution for other avr boards.

This is starting to look more and more like a hoax to me. No official word from the devs, the official website has no news about this, and the 48 hour deadline has come and gone. What is the point in spreading rumours like this!!!

Double tap the eject button when the disk is in and it will eject and boot in JB mode. i am always forgetting to take out my disk as well.

I think it was just under development. And now 3.55 is released and they work for a newer one, which runs on 3.55.
