December 4, 2010 // 6:41 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!

The one major difference, in my opinion anyway, will be that on the PS3 the cycles between a hack and Sony's fix will probably be much shorter, at least with the current methods. Running a few Xbox 360s and a Wii, over years I've only had to do something to each 2 times. Again, the methods are totally different, but when it comes to simply making games work, it's a relevant comparison.

Sony did a good job of making users accustomed to being online and relatively frequent mandatory updates. This allows them to force fixes more often than other consoles. Like everyone has been saying all along, a different method of attack will be necessary for the long term.

If you seriously think there won't be any bans, you're up for a H-U-G-E surprise.

The major PS3 hackers have been able to access PSN since shortly after the DNS and proxy method were patched, they're still going online, and they haven't been banned yet, sony just can't get it right

if u do i rite, the hack still works w/ a game in...i do it all the time.
