    2. PS3 News

    Sony updated the PS3 to Firmware 4.82 only the other day and already theres a new custom firmware released, awesome stuff by the homebrew hackers for the PS3:

    Team PS3Xploit over at psx-place.com has released software tools for dumping and writing NOR/NAND flash on PS3 consoles with original firmware (OFW) 4.82 based on the previously released webkit exploit! Dumping supports both OFW 4.81 and 4.82. The PS3Xploit development team behind this impressive feat consists of: W (nonoscript, Research & Testing), esc0rtd3w (Debugging, Research & Testing), habib (ROP & Debugging), bguerville (ROP/nonoscript & Debugging). These tools allow dumping, patching and overwriting original firmware (OFW) 4.82 with a custom firmware (CFW). If the QA flag is enabled after installing CFW 4.82 it can also be downgraded to lower CFW version. However, not all PS3 models are supported, here's a brief list of the currently supported ones...

    Dumper: PHAT models supported; H=NOR, J=NOR, K=NOR, L=NOR, M=NOR, P=NOR, Q=NOR. SLIM models supported; 20XX = NOR, 21XX = NOR, 25XX = NOR, 3XXX = NOR, 4XXXB = NOR, 4XXXC = NOR.

    Writer: PHAT models supported; A = NAND, B = NAND, C = NAND, E = NAND, G = NAND, H = NOR, J = NOR, K = NOR, L = NOR, M = NOR, P = NOR, Q = NOR. SLIM models supported; 20XX = NOR, 21XX = NOR, 25XX = NOR (fw 3.56 and lower).

    Warning: Do not use this on 3xxx/4xxx PS3 models (aka Late Slim models / SuperSlim), you will brick those consoles! Also, this is only for PS3 with previously installed OFW 4.82, not CFW.

    There is a chance of bricking your console, just be aware of the risks. For more info check the news post over at psx-place.com. The files can be downloaded here at EurAsia."

    Real world issues have dogged me these last few years but i have always been a fan of homebrew and emulation, im no expert like many others but i am always in awe of the work of the coders who hack consoles and bring so much more than they were originally intended for.

    2. Snes News

    Heres a new release of one of the iconic Snes Emulators for Windows, this is an emulator i remember from the days when i started checking out emulation sites and was amazed that computers could emulate consoles, heres the release info:

    Snes9x v1.55 is released. Snes9x is a portable, freeware Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator. It basically allows you to play most games designed for the SNES and Super Famicom Nintendo game systems on your PC or Workstation; which includes some real gems that were only ever released in Japan. Snes9x is the result of well over three years worth of part-time hacking, coding, recoding, debugging, divorce, etc. (just kidding about the divorce bit). Snes9x is coded in C++, with three assembler CPU emulation cores on the i386 Linux and Windows ports.

    Snes9x changelog:
    - Added support for the MSU-1 coprocessor. (qwertymodo)
    - Added support for MSU-1 distribution pack. (qwertymodo)
    - Added support for BS-X Satellaview memory packs and data files. (LuigiBlood)
    - Improved BS-X memory mapping accuracy. (LuigiBlood)
    - Fixed APU error causing issues with some games. (byuu, qwertymodo)
    - Added option to ignore patch checksums. (qwertymodo)
    - Fixed build warnings / undefined behavior. (bonimy)
    - Correct pixel placement in hires. (BearOso, OV2)
    - Fixed RAM mapping for Light Fantasy. (hex_usr, BearOso)
    - Added Circuit USA APU timing hack. (BearOso)
    - libretro: Merged some changes from downstream repository. (OV2)
    - GTK+: Allow use of XDG config directory. (BearOso)
    - GTK+: Add 10th save slot. (YamashitaRen)
    - GTK+: Updated Spanish translation. (jristz)
    - Win32: Switched to Studio 2017. (OV2)
    - Win32: Fixed problems when minimized in d3d. (OV2)
    - Win32: Split Patch/Rom directory. (OV2)
    - Win32: Simplified compilation by removing or including some dependencies (included CG headers, completely removed FMOD and FMOD_EX, moved direct draw to compile switch) and reworking solution/configurations. (bonimy, OV2)
    - Win32: Fixed crash with movie dialog (OV2)
    - Win32: Changed hotplugging (OV2)

    2. PS3 News

    Some awesome news for PS3 Owners or Playstation 3 if you prefer it that way, the PS3 is a game console i have owened from day 1, infact i still have 2 day one consoles, one working and one not, the one that hasnt has the yellow line of death and i tried getting into it and failed so gave up, the day one consoles have the PS2 innards if im not mistaken, anyway enough of my blurb, heres the news:

    It was nearly 7 years ago since we have seen a PS3 Official Firmware Exploited (3.55 being the last), which predates many PS3 models and thus why those later Slim & SuperSlim models could never install Custom Firmware (CFW) and/or Downgrade. However that could all change as a team of three have been developing a new project (4.81 OFW Exploit) called PS3Xploit. The 'Unhackable PS3 models' will be a term of the past, but the exploits not quite there yet but the possibility of a HENkaku (vita) style hack is very plausible. Currently the exploit has allowed for access to enable Flash dumps on all consoles, Then Write access to Flash, unhackables (25xx +) will not be able to write but all previous PS3 will so that means Goodbye Hardware Flashers and Hello Software Downgradrs. The team is consisting of psx-place's very own @bguerville, @esc0rtd3w and W form the team behind PS3Xploit.
