October 11, 2009 // 10:09 pm - A few months back we gave a shout out for a talented coder, and shortly after SamY was welcomed to our PS3 Dev Team!

In recent weeks we have made some significant progress with the PS3 Reference Tool, which will be detailed as time permits in the months to come.

That being said, we are now seeking someone who can help with MIPs Executable (ELF) reversals from decrypted, non-obfuscated file dumps.

A few of the resident PS3 Devs have assisted us with this in the past, but for the near future are unable to devote the time and we would like to keep moving forward at a comfortable pace.

So.. if you have experience in this area, feel free to message me (CJPC) on IRC EFnet, reply to this thread or E-Mail Us.

As soon as you have demonstrated your ability, we will add you as a PS3 Dev here and invite you to our PS3 Dev IRC channel to work directly with us.

PS: Please keep in mind, this progress has nothing at all to do with the Retail PS3 console... nobody (including us) is any closer to unlocking it, and chances are we're all in for a long wait there!

Project: Resident PS3 Devs Are Seeking a RE Specialist

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene and PS4 Hacks & JailBreak updates with PlayStation 4 homebrew PS4 Downloads.

We finally got the results: both yours and revel8n's were done correctly, just one was in C and the other in C++ style.

That said- I will add you both as PS3 Devs here, so feel free to join the IRC channel that you will see in the Notice (do not post it anywhere, as it's private) when you next login to the site.

No problem... I just got back home today, I was on a business travel for the past 2 weeks! Can't wait to get 'the results'
Of course I'd like to be on the team and help out as much as I can! Just msg me, email me, IRC me or whatever

By the way, in my case, my work would probably be 'Halal' and not 'Kosher'

OK, I sent it to your registration e-mail... if you make any headway with it you can send it back to the mail address I used to send it from.

Hello,
i would be willing to take a look at this test file and see what i can make of it. i am doing and have done plenty of reversals of the mips code for games on the ps2, and have used it in my reverse engineering efforts for a number of games, including Final Fantasy X and Metal Gear Solid 2. i am definitely interested in seeing whether or not my skills would be of use to the devs.

There is, the debugging hardware built into the PS3 TOOL uses a MIPS based CPU!

Yeah sorry - just checked my email again tonight and it had bounced (don't use that email much!)

It wasn't that important anyway, i'll try resending tho just so you know where i stand on this stuff
