Video: Control the PS3 with a Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo 550°
269w ago - Below is a video from MaemoItalia demonstrating how to control the PS3 with the Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo.

BlueMaemo is a remote controller program for the Maemo-powered devices. With BlueMaemo you can turn your Maemo-powered device in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile.

When you have a PlayStation 3 or PC running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X the PS3 / PC is Bluetooth-ready and supports the HID Bluetooth profile. You have a Nokia Nseries phone with BlueMaemo loaded and you're now in control.

Windows XP and Media Center Edition:

• Turn bluetooth on.
• Start BlueMaemo on the device.
• Go to the bluetooth preferences and choose 'Add a new device'.
• Choose the device and choose a blank password (you can also choose a numeric password the PassAgentKey will appear on the device asking for the password).

Recently astrogirl wrote a BlueMaemo pairing guide for PS3 users, to quote:

The steps I do to pair are: On the PS3 go to the menu Settings > Accessory Settings > Manage Bluetooth Devices.

• Press Register New Device and...

He has also set up a page with links to a MotorStorm PS3 Hack PDF Guide and the related PS3 Save File.

Below is a roughly translated version of the French tutorial with a better English translation by stef1578 HERE:

Video: ZPack for PS3 - The First PlayStation 3 Backup System?!

Video: ZPack for PS3 - The First PlayStation 3 Backup System?! 1350°
270w ago - Below is a video from TheIndianKhan on YouTube and some info on Zpack for PS3, which claims (ZPack FAQ) to be the first PlayStation 3 backup system.

To quote: I found this in my holiday in Korea, there are PS3 cafes which run their games from external harddisk without using the original disks. I am one of the first who tested this Zpack System.

Zpack is the first working Backup System for PlayStation 3. It was especially designed for PlayStation Cafes across the world to avoid damaging your original game disk and beware them to be stolen by customers. You will not need the original disk to play on your PS3 anymore just start any game you have directly from your external hard disk.

Zpack comes to you with a USB Dongle and a DISK with the Zpack Software, which you only need the first time for installation. The USB dongle have to be connected to your PS3 all the time. When you run a PlayStation Cafe with 8 PlayStation Terminals, you will need 8 Zpacks for each PS3 Terminal to run the games from the external drives. Please pay Attention for our Zpack bundles.

Video: Wireless PS3 WVI Mod Has Modern Warfare 2 On The Go 350°
270w ago - A modder named Techknott has shared a video of a Wireless PS3 WVI Mod he made that allows for playing Modern Warfare 2 on the go!

The handheld sends control signals to a PS3 which transmits video signals back to the device, which will soon be available for purchase apparenrly.

To quote: PS3 version of the WVI. Just got it finished(ish) today. Its playable, however, I have blown a TA7176AP chip on the sound reciever board, so while there is sound, its really crap quality until I get it changed - no biggie.

This will be for sale once I get the sound problem sorted out.

Specs are:

• 4500maH Li-ion battery's and recharge circuit with built in
LED capacity meter.
• 5" widescreen LCD
• AV in port, headphones, usb mini and charge
• 1.2ghz wireless AV receiver and (obviously) ps3 remote.

GeoHot Resumes Sony PS3 Hacking, Opens PS3 Hacks Blog

GeoHot Resumes Sony PS3 Hacking, Opens PS3 Hacks Blog 1300°
270w ago - This weekend GeoHot, the hacker responsible for several Apple iPhone hacks, has returned to Sony PS3 hacking after his initial announcement a few months back and has opened a PS3 hacks blog (linked above).

He recently made this Tweet:

"I just pulled everything from the USB bus... http://pastie.org/757313 the Cell processor SPI bus, PS3 is going down :-)"

These are the latest posts on his new PS3 hacks blog:

Cell SPI

The Cell processor has an SPI port which is used to configure the chip on startup. Well documented here. It also allows hypervisor level MMIO registers to be accessed. In the PS3, the south bridge sets up the cell, and the traces connecting them are on the bottom layer of the board. Cut them and stick an FPGA between.

Quick theoretical attack. Set an SPU's user memory region to overlap with the current HTAB. Change the HTAB to allow read/write to the hypervisor! If that works it's full compromise...
