Sony PlayStation Test Development Kit / PS3 Debug for sale! 100°
May 7, 2008 // 4:50 pm - One of the most frequently asked questions via e-mail, IRC, and on the Forums we get asked is "How did CJPC get his hands on a PS3 Debug/TEST machine?!"

The answer: Monitor places such as eBay like it's your job, and win them before "big brother" Sony catches on and closes the auction of course!

A perfect example (in case anyone is interested in buying one) is the auction set to end tomorrow here:

PS3 Debug/TEST to Retail Flash Progress and More! 500°
May 5, 2008 // 4:04 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 // 10:01 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...

PS3News.com gets a late President's Day gift! 100°
February 21, 2008 // 4:48 pm - We at PS3News got yet another great, although belated gift recently. Welcome the new PS3 Test to the family!

We received it the other day and since this is an actual TEST unit, versus a prototype (which is what I have), we decided to show off a few pictures below!

With the additional TEST unit, we now have (2) development PS3's to work with. It will help work progress much more efficiently as the resident PS3 Devs will be able to offload work onto the other unit now too.

In related news, we have been able to get additional retail back-ups running on the...

PS3: Patches Ahoy! 500°
January 12, 2008 // 7:26 pm - Another brief update based on the yesterday's findings: the PS3 Flash is quite accessible as the majority of it is mounted inside the PS3 as a filesystem (think PSP), and is able to be read/written.

A picture is below for a peek at a partial filelist. As you can see there are quite a few sprx's. These are encrypted of course, however they function quite the same as their PSP counterparts. For the majority of the PS3 OS's functions, there is a sprx that is tasked to do the job.

For the big chunk of interesting news: Every single scene release ever released for PS3 will...

PS3News.com Gets a Late Christmas Gift! 550°
January 10, 2008 // 11:51 pm - We at PS3News.com asked Santa for a PS3 Test, and he delivered, albeit a bit late.

It is a special unit, it runs unsigned code, and can do loads of debugging.

Just today we have learned alot, including the Blu-Ray drives transparent encryption, and even dumped a majority of the flash and HDD from inside the unit (Unencrypted!)

More to come!
