• PS3 Hacks , 03.09.2009

    Got a few BluRay discs to burn (literally)? Well the hackers over at Demonhades have figured out that you can still run BD-J homebrew via BD-R on any PS3 firmware.

    Translation from Demonhades post:

    It appears that recording to any homebrew BD-R BD-Java, this can be run from any console from any firm.
    To make it work implements have to record the BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders in the root of the disk. PS3 to get it into the menu of [Video] we will bear in our BD and homebrew. I leave you a video:
    From here it follows that only banned the BD-Java and the USB reader targetas Letor BD but no ban.

    What do you think? Surprised? I think from this you can make the PS3 Scene reborn a bit to take it away because it took off all his scene. With this the Sony console is able to load emulators, and homebrew games Aplisa.

    Thanks SCE for news tip.

      I thought it was common knowledge that BD-J could be run off BD-R discs, BD-J was designed to be run of Blu Ray discs, so there was no reason for anyone to think that it wouldnt run on BD-R.


      Also to think that BD-J would get banned from BD-R, is the same as thinking that Swap Magic will get banned >.<

      One of my Swap Magic discs (cd version 3.6) is not supported on my b/c ps3 with firmware 2.80. I don't really know why but I guess it got "banned" or whatever..

      I've read here and on other forums of people using the CD version of swap magic on older firmware. So, what are you talking about "never intended to work this way"?

      The CD version never worked for loading PS1 games...
      And I think he means that PS2 b/c wasn't made for Swap Magic so b/c won't get fully banned for one disc, and banning Crazy Taxi (the game SM is based) would be a dumb dumb move...

      Swap Magic has never been banned, so your post is irrelevant
      Also please stay on topic, i was using Swap Magic as an example, and it was the DVD version i was refering too

      I never said anything about ps1 games. Obviously there is some miscommunication and I mistyped in my original post (I meant 3.8 not 3.6). Anyway, here are some pictures of wtf I'm talking about:




      It's a ps2 format disc, that used to be compatible on older firmware (can someone confirm this?), that is no longer compatible. Also, if the DVD version of swap magic is Crazy Taxi, then what game is the CD version based on?

      .. either the people who posted that the CD version is bootable are full of sh*t, or it simply doesn't work on Model #CECHE01, or it was "banned" in a firmware update?? bleh I don't even care anymore

      I dont remember the CD version ever working,there are several posts about it not working,though as i said before, this thread is not about Swap Magic, there is IRC if you want to continue the discussion.

      Hi,
      Even though I knew that BD-J still worked form official BD Movies, I was unsure if it would work on a burned BD. So itīs always good to have confirmation.

      off topic

      exactly, SM is not for booting ps1 games. there seems to be some confusion about that. the cd version is for direct booting of cd ps2 games. alot of the 1st ps2 games were on cd. the cd also has the abilty to boot elfs from usb.

      The CD version of SM is Crazy Taxi. Iīm not sure about the DVD. The original Crazy taxi was CD, Iīm not sure if it was rereleased as on DVD. if it was, itīs possible the dvd of SM is also CrazyTaxi.

      Well ,I īm one of the people who posted the cd version works(both 3.6 and 3.8) on PAL ps3s and Iīm not full of sh*t. The problem seems to be on NTSC consoles. although I donīt believe it was banned, I have heard enough people complain about this problem. so something might have happened. Funny thing though is that someone with a NTSC console told me their cd SM still worked.
      If anyone wants to discuss this more, make another thread in the hacks section.
      I donīt want to make the MODs angry.

      It dosnt matter either way,it is irrelevant to this thread, as i said previously, what i said was an example, ill say it again.

      Also to think that BD-J would get banned from BD-R, is the same as thinking that Swap Magic will get banned >.<
      Swap Magic hasnt been banned and it never will,it isnt an illegal disc, it is perfectly legal, so i assume Sony would get in some sort of trouble for "banning".

      Any further discussion in this thread about Swap magic will be deleted as it is taking away from the purpose of the thread.
