PS3 Flash Goodies - Part 3: The FULL PS3 Flash FileList 250°
May 20, 2008 // 4:53 pm - With all of the recent news of PS3 retail "trickery" going on, this post got postponed (mind the pun) until today.

The image below is a snippet of the FULL PS3 Flash FileList for the PS3's /dev_flash. It should be noted that the PS3 also has a /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3, which upon rare occasion is updated, however we are not able to access them yet due to some pesky Kernel/Hypervisor issues.

PS3 Flash Goodies - Part 2: The XML Revolution 350°
May 16, 2008 // 5:31 pm - With the great ongoing work in our PS3 Forums with the RCO files, we are also going to talk about component two of the PS3's XMB includes- its XML Files!

Inside the directory exists 30 XML files. They control quite a bit in regards to the PS3's appearance and functioning, from telling the XMB what types of information to display, all the way to letting you download PlayStation Home!

Do make sure to check out the attached image, as it is code...

PS3 Flash Goodies - Part 1 550°
May 12, 2008 // 5:00 pm - First of all, readers of our Forums know (with the assistance of our Members) we have recently been doing research into the PS3 RCO file format.

Note that it is different than that on a PSP, however, contains similarities as well. We have received a few questions as to "why" we want to examine the files... it's for a few reasons. First off- We are all curious! Secondly, the RCO files, in support with other files, enable/disable "links" to PS3 XMB options.

PS3 Debug/TEST to Retail Flash Progress and More! 500°
May 5, 2008 // 2:04 pm - We mentioned in previous Site News posts that we're working on converting a Retail PS3 into a Debug PS3.. and we have some updated news on the process to share today.

For starters, we had quite a delay. Our PS3 Devs have been using an expensive external programmer to do the job, however, these dumps differed than the dumps from the Infectus chip. It was quite a puzzling issue indeed.. which was the proper dump?!

After many hours of examination spanning over a few...

PS3 Debug/TEST Flash Dumped!! 550°
April 9, 2008 // 8:01 pm - Earlier last week, one of the PS3 Devs sent his PS3 Debug/TEST unit off to another resident Dev (who also successfully did a PS3 Retail Flash dump early last year) to have the PS3 Flash dumped.

Well, it has been done! In an amazing feat taking all of 10 minutes, Courier pulled the two PS3 NAND Flash chips from the PS3 TEST and dumped them. Nothing like a hot air rework station in the hands of a professional!

So, the PS3 TEST Flash has been dumped! We also had a chance to do a preliminary analysis on it...

Resistance: Fall of Disc Based Encryption 350°
January 13, 2008 // 9:48 pm - We have been revisiting the aspects of the Blu-Ray disc encryption today. As we know every executable is encrypted, and those executables that are placed on game discs are encrypted once more.

This second layer of encryption can be quite the bother, as it hinders our efforts to explore the console. So we have created a tool that runs on Dev machines that automatically dumps the main encrypted file (EBOOT.BIN) to a PC, or Memory Card.

The PS3News.com EBOOT.BIN dumper may be publically released in coming days, it is ready to go and is installable as a PKG, however it will...

Microsoft trials XP on XO laptop 50°
December 9, 2007 // 2:00 pm - Microsoft is to begin field tests of Windows XP working on the so-called $100 laptop, or XO, early in 2008.

It has not committed to offering XP on the XO laptop but hopes to release the operating system in the first half of 2008 if the trials succeed.

The work, undertaken as part of the firm's plans to widen access to technology, forms part of a project to run Windows on flash-based machines.

The XO does not have a hard drive, and uses a lightweight flash drive instead.

Microsoft's James Utzschneider, writing on his blog, said: "We are hard...

PSP Project 4 (P4) Full XMB Replacement 50°
December 3, 2007 // 4:53 pm - Project 4 is a complete XMB replacement for the PSP running entirely from the flash. No memstick or plugins required!

Check out the video here: Project 4.

Quick notes from Auraomega:

I planned to record the installer installing from scratch, but unfortunatly the installer is making an error that I can't track down, most likely with the firmware patching.

This is aimed at all current Custom Firmware out there, but is highly unlikely...
