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!

wait and see.. probably payloads for more known boards are gonna be available sooner and then someone will port it to nano. if it didn't happen.. ask anyone who did port the old ones and he maybe of help. there is not that much people who can port so you will not be lost.

well it doesn't show unrecognised usb device in the top right hand corner so the jb worked, and you can see the app_home and install packages option in the game section.

I hope this is true, but it'll only mean $ony bring out new firmware in the future.

I havn't got a clue about all the technical side, but I'm all for putting large sticks in the wheels of their rickshaws

Big news like this makes me think that we accomplished something extreme like time travel, anyhow I just bought the e3 card reader for the downgrading side, now I can't wait for this to be reversed for mostly all boards

not sure if it's true as because when ps3 turned on presed eject stright away so it could just be spoof 3.50 but i hope it's not a fake as my nephew wants me to downgrade his system at this would meen i won't have too.

Impossible becouse he boots Jailbreak first,not ACID CFW first,so PS3 should boot with out This things,so...
Maybe he Somehow flashed hacked XMLs to dev_flash...

Not sure, time will tell what is and what is not. Maybe it works, but it seems that its just DEBUG ps3 with Pluged in x3max ,couse you can see messages that only Debug console shows, like:

"Game Quit:No Request Event" - you can see it in the right top corner on 2:24

So i think its just Deug console with Pluged x3max, but again its just a guess

They are debug options that are available using an xml hack.
