312w ago - Well, it's not actually an E3 post but if Sony held an E3 for PS3 Devs they may have offered these, right?

Today two very nice guys (Garfield and another, whose nickname we will add if he wishes) have shared PS3 Debug/Test Firmware 2.76 and 2.60 with the resident PS3 Devs here- THANKS guys!!!

Unlike many PS3 Firmware updates that block access to certain folders and directories in dev_flash, 2.76 allows full read access to dev_flash, so you can access the PS1 and PS2 emu files, as well as all of the system sprx's, some self's, xml's and rco's.

Download: PS3 Debug Firmware v2.76 (USA) Update / PS3 Debug Firmware v2.60 (USA) Update

We don't yet have the official 2.76 changelog, but below are some changes (excluding all the bugfixes) from 2.6:

[New Feature]
•HDD boot games and game data can now be deleted from the system software menu that appears when the PS button is pressed during the game. However, data currently in use by the game is, as before, not deletable.

[Specification Change]
•The keyboard function keys F17 - F24 are now reserved for the system. Thus, it will no longer be possible for the game to retrieve data from these keys.

E3 2009: PS3 Debug Firmware 2.76 and 2.60 Leaked!

Thanks, its appreciated!

There are quite a few always interesting files, like the XML files, and plenty of SPRX's. The plus about any of the files is that most of the names are quite clear to what the files do, which makes it easier to speculate!

Has anyone tried to install this on a retail console using the hard drive swap method?

Any updates of the ps2emu* files. Hopefully Sony will add full software emulation of PS2 titles by the end of the year.
