    That's awesome and I'm jealous. Mind you if I got my hands on one of those I'd sure end up missing a lot of sleep! :D

    Great news :) Hope you reach your goals point the whole ps3 community in to the correct direction.

    Maybe your devs already had this thought, but, why not make a game like program, launches like a game, and i assume HV is not running at that time, and thats when you make the swap with another disk (game) sort of like swap majic?

    or even from there, somehow downgrade or install a custom fw? or even just modify the fw? anywho just some thoughts i had while reading your article.

    Best of luck and lets get this done!

    this is some hot news indeed.

    we may still not be able to hack the ps3 with this TOOL, but at least you guys will manage to fully understand how the PS3 works, and that is definitely a BIG step in the right direction. :D

    First and foremost, congrats! This is truly epic news!

    Not to be the 'debbie-downer' but if sony found out who owned this unit prior, couldnt they lock it out from the TOOL updates and whatnot? maybe im just being paranoid... lol

    cheers and here's to the forthcoming 'checkmate' on that hypervisor crap

    Yea, that isn't an issue... the updates are usually internal leaks from multiple sources versus updating the TOOL directly from Sony. :cool:
    I wouldn't expect 'daily' updates... he just got it, is grabbing some required files needed for testing and then will begin exploring what can be done with it.

    Based on talking to CJPC and bearing any 'breaking news' discovered with it, I would say to expect updates on a weekly/bi-weekly etc basis depending on their progress made and of course CJ's freetime.

    Like most others here, he starts up classes again and has to make time for "real life" stuff too.. so he/the Devs aren't hacking away at it 24/7 lol! :p

    In my opinion the hardest part is done- we now have a PS3 TOOL at the Devs disposal and it's not going anywhere, so basically just let them do what they do best with no pressure. Rest assured, when there is news/progress... they will share it!

    I got a DECR-1000A recently and I got the exact screen whenever I boot the system up. I can press the PS button to popup the XMB but when I press quit game, the screen go dark and nothing happens. Please let me know how to boot into XMB mode like you guys did on the youtube video.

    Thanks

    This is so nice! I wish I could have one of these too, but it`s too expensive, and I don`t see any reason for me to have one of these, as I am not a developer and I am from Brazil, so actually one of these reference tools here would be twice the price you paid
