    A while ago it was reported in the media that LG and Sony were in a legal battle, over infingments caused by Sony towards LG, just today, LG won a ten day injunction, blocking the import of all PS3 consoles, here is a quote from the source:

    European customs officers have been ordered to seize shipments of Playstation 3s after LG won a preliminary injunction against Sony in an acrimonious patent battle between the two Asian electronics giants.

    The ruling by the civil court of justice in the Hague means that all new PS3s have to be confiscated as they are imported into the UK and the rest of Europe for at least 10 days.

    If the injunction was extended it could mean consoles disappearing from high street shelves. It is understood that Sony and computer games retailers typically have about two to three weeks’ worth of PS3s in stock across the continent.

    Tens of thousands of PS3s were seized by customs officers last week in the Netherlands, the Guardian has learnt, in a dispute that centres on Sony’s allegedly infringing use of Blu-ray technology belonging to LG.

    Sony, which imports around 100,000 of the consoles a week, is frantically trying to get the ban lifted. The Japanese company has the right to appeal to the European patents office.

    LG meanwhile, could apply to the same patents office to get the 10-day import ban extended. Alternatively, the Korean company could apply for a court order to get the consoles destroyed but it is highly unlikely the court would grant a request to eliminate the warehoused goods.

    LG argues that Sony PS3s infringe a number of its patents relating to playback of Blu-ray Discs. LG called for an investigation into the PS3′s Blu-ray use in a filing with the US international trade commission earlier this month, and said it sought a “permanent exclusion order … excluding entry into the United States” of the games console.

    If Sony is found to have infringed LG patents, it could be forced to compensate the South Korean manufacturer for each PS3 it has sold around the world, which could cost hundreds of millions of pounds.

    The two technology giants are involved in a complex web of seven separate patent disputes, with Sony also seeking to block shipments of LG smartphones to the US.

    Rotterdam and Schiphol are the main import points for PS3s for both the UK and continental Europe. The consoles are being stockpiled in Dutch warehouses until it becomes clear how the case will develop.

    A spokesman for Sony Playstation said: “We are currently looking into this matter, and cannot make any comments at this point in time.” LG declined to comment, although sources close to the company confirmed the current legal position.

    Sony has sold more than 3m PS3s in the UK since its launch in March 2007. The Japanese manufacturer is understood to have a stockpile of around 6,500 PS3s in Germany and 10,000 in the UK.

    However, the majority of PS3 sales around Europe are pre-orders, meaning they are already sold before they gather dust at warehouses in the UK and elsewhere. Stockpiles could run out within two to three weeks if the ban is not lifted, the Guardian understands.

    If you have an Android enabled phone, like me you can access your PS3 via FTP. Accessing the PS3 via FTP is nothing new, but to me accessing it via phone is.

    The applications needed are:

    ES File Explorer

    Open FTP 1.4 [cant be "nopass" ] will explain in a min.

    Dev_Blind [for writeable dev_flash access]

    Install ES File Explorer via The Android Market, its a free app. From what ive used its very good too, it allows for LAN connections and also SDCARD but most importantly FTP. It does allow for Root access as well on the phone that remains untested.

    I’ve tried numous FTP Apps but never got it to work until now.

    Install Dev_Blind on your PS3, there have been many a warning about bricking - so do it at your .. oh never mind, you know what im gonna say.
    If you’re nieve enough to delete the whole of your dev flash and expect it to be fine, you deserve a brick. ahem, anyway…

    Finally install Open FTP

    On with good stuff,

    Fire up dev_blind to enable writeable flash

    Then open up Open FTP, your ANDROID and PS3 Must Be On The Same Network!

    Finally, on your phone

    Load up ES File Manager go to new -> Server -> and put in

    USER:

    root

    PASSWORD:

    openbox

    NOTE: it has to be the non “no pass version” as it wont work otherwise.
    It needs the Username and Password.

    also click on “Passive”

    Port: 21

    For Display as you can put anything and it will work. Ive just put the name of my phone.

    Ignore Encoding.

    In a few seconds you should see a list of folders + dev_blind on your android device!

    Happy FTP-ing ^_^

    This method was tested by myself (facanferff) with my banned console (error 8002A227, could not log in to PSN or create new accounts, so permanent ban). If you have any problem in executing this method, please tell me.

    IMPORTANT: According with one user, this method doesn’t work with a banned console with error 8002A31. But with 8002A227 it is confirmed to be working.

    Tools required:
    - PS3DNS-GUI: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2RU3VOHE
    - PSID: http://stoker25.com/files/PSIDPatch16.zip

    1. I hope that you put the new CA24.cer in dev_flash/data/cert

    1. Download PS3DNS-GUI

    2. Run “PS3DNS-GUI.exe” and choose your ip and region

    3. Go to Tools -> Rewrite -> PS3DNS – eth0 -> Rules -> Add

    4. Put every field like in the image, where in the image it says “your original console id” you have to write your original (banned) console id with no spaces and in the field “your original console id but in last number change it to 1″ do as it says (e.g.: if your original console id is “0000000100850008100dkwab4k957do200000000000000000 000000000000000″ put then “0000000100850008100dkwab4k957do200000000000000000 000000000000001″): (uncheck Response)

    5. Click ok -> ok (of course)

    6. Go to your PS3, in DNS set in primary your pc’s ip (secondary DNS can be 0.0.0.0), activate proxy, in host enter again your pc’s ip and in port enter 8888. Then you can test to confirm that you have network.

    7. Try to log in to PSN and you are logged in!

    Now if you want to go to PSN Store, then follow the following, else if you only want to play online go to step 10:

    8. Execute PSID (Sony can discover it, but they can’t ban you becuase you are using a blank console id, so you don’t exist, you are a bot ) and there click Square to change to a random console id

    9. Try now to go to PSN Store and you will enter there! You can download what you want but I alert you that some things are giving error when trying to download, but the majority will download, including Killzone 3 demo

    10. First confirm that you have your original console id according to PSID (important) then you can run any game and play it online.

    Note: Playstation Home doesn’t work with this method, I am working in getting it work.

    Thanks everyone for reading this, if you are having problems, please report them to me and I’ll try to figure it out.

    graf_chokolo had his house raided a few days ago and now geohot has something to say about it. Read the full article below.

    As many of you already know, 2 days ago his house was raided by the German police. Talk about a guy who clearly had no involvement at all with piracy, cheating, or the things Sony claims to care about. Do you want to know what he has that enrages the suits at Sony so much? Talent.

    Some people call me immature, and you know what, they are probably right. Some call me stubborn, and they are right too. But this pales grossly in comparison to Sony, who is so butthurt over the PS3 being hacked they they are blinded by rage and incompetence.

    A question, how many people do you think knew or cared on January 10 about all this? Maybe a couple hundred thousand? Under a percent of your market share. And these are geeks, who frankly aren’t going to change their content purchasing habits based on the news. These are the kind of people who really are hacking their PS3 just for the sake of doing it, just cause it’s cool. The kind of people who are telling you the truth when they say they really did just hack their PS3 to run Linux. Or they are diehard pirates who never would have bought the games anyway, you know the type.

    Now fast forward to February 25. Consistently, the top Sony related news article is about the PS3 being hacked. And the causal gamer comes along and sees, oh cool, the PS3 has been hacked, now I don’t have to buy games. With a few google searches, they come across stuff that I or graf_chokolo had nothing at all to do with. They install it and hit the torrent sites. Hell, I was on a political news show last night, you think those people ever would have heard about this?

    Just imagine what the third party devs are thinking. The PS3 is hacked forever and Sony can’t do anything but fire away at scapegoats. Great confidence boost.

    This grand show against people who aren’t even pirates has to be one of the worst corporate moves in recent history, perhaps even as dumb as the rootkit fiasco. Your competition fixes the problem technically and moves on. They want it to stay quiet. And as far as sending a message to “evil” hackers goes, it really isn’t working. Just read the writings of graf_chokolo.

    And I quote “SONY wants about 750.000 euros from me if i don’t cooperate They don’t know me at all I don’t care about it and they might double it The higher is the sum the higher gets my motivation They don’t understand what makes me tick. Money and even my life doesn’t mean to me very much without knowledge. I have a scientific mind and the knowledge is food to my brain.”

    They’ll never understand people like us. They are scared, as they rightfully should be. We built your PS3. We built this world. We are not mindless consumers. It is us with the brains and curiosity, not you with the guns, jails, suits, titles, and dollars. And the truth is, if all of you disappeared tomorrow, the world would continue on fine. Good luck surviving without people like graf_chokolo.

    Your favorite backup manager just got sexier, dean, the coder behind Multiman, has released a massive update to his backup manager with many goodies for you to get your hands on. New features include the long awaited NTFS support (for EXTERNAL USB drives currently). Fixes the 99% hang issue many of you were having when copying files. He also brings v3.56 spoofing. The NTFS is still being worked on so if there are issues be patient as they will most likely be fixed in the future. (more…)

    A new Geohot interview is out from the The Alyona Show. The interview talks about the latest PS3 hacks and what Geohot thinks of Sony’s (recent) actions, and his lawsuit. Geohot says in the interview that he is confident of winning the lawsuit against Sony, and the lawsuit is just a “scare” tactic to steer hackers away from the PS3. “Fear doesn’t win and its something [Sony] will never learn”

    You can view it below here:

    In addition to the raid looks like Sony, SCEE is also suing Graf_Chokolo for a big 1 Million Euros for the release of all the “HV Bible”…but that doesn’t scare graf, he is still motivated to work on his PS3 developments.

    To quote VIA his blog:

    Back :-) I don’t have a PC at home now guys, so i will post here only when i’m able. I will try to answer all your questions about HV and installing Linux. But expect some delays because as i said i don’t have access to the Internet all the time.

    You know guys, you will say i’m totally crazy now, but i never slept better
    than in the last 2 days :-) I don’t know how to explain this feeling but
    i don’t care about those threats with jail and high money penalties, btw, SONY wants about 750.000 euros from me if i don’t cooperate :-) They don’t know me at all :-) I don’t care about it and they might double it :-) The higher is the sum the higher gets my motivation :-) They don’t understand what makes me tick. Money and even my life doesn’t mean to me very much without knowledge. I have a scientific mind and the knowledge is food to my brain. Without HV, Linux and FreeBSD kernel hacking my life is meaningless.

    I miss my HV terribly :-) In the last 2 days i got so “hungry”
    for more knowledge that i cannot control it anymore. I need knowledge and research, it has a huge meaning in my life. Jail or even death cannot hold it back anymore.

    The SONY’s laywer asked me why i’m doing what i’m doing, because of my hatred for SONY ? He cannot understand why i’m doing it, because he is paid for what he does. I’m not. I don’t hold a grudge against SONY even now :-) Hatred clouds your mind, keeps you from more important things. I have a better use for my mind and knowledge :-)

    So, SONY you failed again, you took my equipment but my mind is still free and you canot control it. You failed again. They are just tools, i can get new ones and will continue my HV reversing and bringing back PS3 Linux which you took from us. If you want me to stop then you should just kill me because i cannot live without programming, HV and Linux kernel hacking :-) You know who am i and where i live, so come and get me !!! :-)

    And to prove it, i will reopen right now my HV reverse engineering page :-) And i will post my latest findings about Update Manager and BD drive here. Most of you know already that i was able to update CORE OS from Linux. And on the last weekend i tries to hel some PS3 devs with BD drive authentication and discovered some interesting stuff about it which i will post here.

    And please guys, could someone post here a link to the latest version of my cloned Linux kernel. I need it. The last week i implemnted a updater for Linux and it was finished but the police got first before i could upload it. But do not fear, i have everything in my head :-) I can write it down again and show you how it works.

    And the folks over at PS3Crunch also got a legal letter for demanding removal of the HV Bible files, you can see the legal document here.
    Also the Math’s PS3Wiki is back online under a different server and ownership and can be found HERE.

    FBAnext r423 Custom v3 has been released. New changes bring lag reduction and other minor fixes. (more…)

    Now this is pretty cool, ever wanted to play PS3 on your iDevice? Well it seems to be possible (with the right hardware setup) and it looks pretty damn cool. Team pandaelf has managed to map out the PS3 controls to your iDevice and lets you fully play your PS3 games on your iPhone/iPad/iPod (similar to remote play with PSP). The video below demos this at work, you can start seeing some iPhone gameplay footage @ 1:40.


    And the release statement:

    With a little wrangling of hardware and software, we were able to put together a demo of how to play PS3 games on an iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

    Feel free to ask questions in the comments, and read on for precise details on how we achieved this.

    TLDR version: We used some off the shelf hardware and everyAir to allow you to play PS3 games on any iOS device.

    Q&A:
    =========================

    Q: What’s the overall picture for how this works?
    A: The trick is to connect a capture device and a USB mouse/keyboard device to the PS3. The capture device sends video data to the PC, and the USB keyboard/mouse sends the button presses. On the PC itself, you run a custom build of everyAir which understands custom gestures and pipes the input to the PC which then sends it to the PS3 via the input interpreter.

    Q: What were some of the hurdles?
    A: There are two problems to solve: sending the video signal to the iOS device and sending back input from the iOS device. Sending the video signal is solved by using an off the shelf capture device, and then sending back the input is a combination of a custom build of everyAir with an off the shelf mouse/keyboard device that connects to the PS3.

    Q: How do you send input to the PS3?
    A: Using one of those USB Keyboard/Mouse devices. For example, Eagle Eye (search for it on Amazon).

    Q: How do you get the video signal from the PS3 to the iOS device?
    A: We do this by using an off the shelf capture device. The capture device connects to the PC, TV, and to the PS3. The result is that a livestream of the PS3′s video signal ends up on the PC.

    Q: How do you connect to the PC from the iOS device?
    A: Using everyAir - our remote desktop application.

    Q: How does everyAir understand the game gestures?
    A: We’re using a custom build of everyAir, and it’s hardcoded to understand these gestures. Additionally, it knows how to pipe input to the mouse/kb device in a way that it expects.

    Q: Will this be publicly available?
    A: We plan to release a fully customizable version at some point in the future.

    They also have PC games such as World of Warcraft running on iPad, so give their Youtube channel, or their site a look if interested. They have not given a release date for their PS3 port and say it will be released soon.

    Remember a while ago we told you about Gitorious fighting back Sony of the removal of the “ps3 hacking” repositories?

    8    **Re: Notification of United States Copyright Law Violations at Listed URLs**
    9
    10    Dear Mr. Mathiesen:
    11
    12    Thank you for your email of February 3, 2011. Sony Computer
    13    Entertainment America LLC (“SCEA”) appreciates Gitorious’s prompt
    14    compliance with SCEA’s prior takedown request and removal of the
    15    repositories at the addresses referenced in our February 1, 2011
    16    letter (the “Feb. 1, 2011 URLs”). As you have requested, the following
    17    shall explain how the content at the Feb. 1, 2011 URLs is unlawful
    18    under Norwegian law.
    19
    20    The Norwegian Copyright Act contains prohibitions against the
    21    circumvention of effective technological protection
    22    measures. Specifically, section 53a of the Copyright Act prohibits the
    23    “circumvent[ion of] effective technological protection measures that
    24    the right holder, or others he has given permission, employs to
    25    control the copying or making available to the public of a protected
    26    work.” The files hosted at the Listed URLs are circumvention devices
    27    that violate this statutory provision because they circumvent
    28    technological protection measures in SCEA’s PlayStation® 3 computer
    29    entertainment system that protect copyrighted works, including SCEA
    30    copyrighted software programs, Programmer Tools, and video
    31    games. Thus, the content at the Listed URLs is in violation of
    32    Norwegian law as circumvention devices in violation of section 53a
    33    Norwegian Copyright Act.
    34
    35    Gitorious’s hosting of the content at the Listed URLs subjects it to
    36    direct liability under the Norwegian Copyright Act. Specifically, it
    37    is unlawful under section 53a to: “a) sell, rent or in any other way
    38    make available, b) manufacture or import for the making available to
    39    the public, c) advertise for sale or rental, d) possess for commercial
    40    purposes, or e) offer services in connection with” the aforementioned
    41    circumvention devices. Similarly, under section 53c, “[t]he sale of,
    42    or possession for purposes of gain, of any means the sole purpose of
    43    which is to facilitate the unlawful removal or circumvention of
    44    technical devices for the protection of a computer program, is
    45    prohibited.”
    46
    47    We note that Gitorious’s hosting of the content at the Listed URLs, or
    48    any similar content constitutes multiple violations of the
    49    abovementioned provisions of the Norwegian Copyright Act, including
    50    but not limited to “mak[ing] available,” “import[ing] for the making
    51    available to the public,” “possess[ing] for commercial purposes,”
    52    and/or “possession for purposes of gain.”
    53
    54    Furthermore, Gitorious’s hosting activities give rise to liability for
    55    contributory copyright infringement under the Norwegian Copyright Act
    56    sections 2 and 54. Specifically, the content at the Listed URLs
    57    facilitate infringement of copyrighted works, as discussed above. By
    58    hosting the content at the Listed URLs, Gitorious is thereby making
    59    the files more accessible to the public, and consequently,
    60    facilitating copyright infringement of protected works. *See* the
    61    Norwegian Supreme Court’s napster.no case (Rt. 2005 s. 41) (holding
    62    owner of the website www.napster.no was liable for contributory
    63    infringement).
    64
    65    In the time that has passed since your last correspondence, we have
    66    identified similar content at additional URLs hosted by Gitorious (the
    67    “Feb. 16, 2011 URLs”). Please refer to the table below identifying the

    124    Specifically, the content at the Listed URLs markets, traffics in,
    125    distributes, and offers “Custom Firmware,” “Keys,” and/or “Signing
    126    Tools” files or components thereof. These files or components thereof
    127    are illegal because they facilitate infringement of copyrighted works,
    128    including SCEA copyrighted software programs, Programmer Tools, and
    129    video games, in violation of the Norwegian Copyright Act sections 2
    130    and 54, and the United States Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 101, *et
    131    seq*. and 17 U.S.C. § 501, *et seq*. The files also constitute
    132    circumvention programs, technologies, devices, services, or components
    133    because they circumvent SCEA’s PlayStation®3 computer entertainment
    134    system’s technological protection measures in violation of the

    Hermes is still poking around the scene, and no doubt has whipped some humor with all the recent legal madness going on with Sony. He has basically created a port of his old Pintor game originally on the PS2/GP2/GP2X/PSP/WII.

    What is the game about?

    You are John Doe and must walk the way to complete the boxes to change to the next screen. But you have to be careful because SCEA and their attorneys are looking to bite your ass. Fortunately, the enemies do not think and are blinded by greed. So as donkeys, they pulled forward and forward, without knowing for sure where are you (here they cannot ask to github, google, paypal personal datas of John Doe)

    To quote from read me:

    fail0verflow

    fail0verflow repository is a tribute for the old fail0verflow repository with LEGAL TOOLS deleted cowardly by github.com because of threats from licks-ass guys called “attorneys of SCEA”.

    The original code was forked more than 1300 guys (the second most forked repository in github.com) who wanted to defend our rights as consumers, owners of our computer / console called PS3, and like non-profit independent programmers. But again, in a system where money is more important than justice, freedom and people (you are a number) the threat of one has much greater weight and repository was deleted unceremoniously and without one word to explain the exact reason.

    Because it, i was create this tribute that shows we “evil” usage of the old fail0verflow tools.

    Pintor/fail0verflow

    ‘Pintor’ is an old videogame made by me, initially, for PS2 console. It is strongly inspired in a spectrum+ game that i remember fondly. I have done ports for a lot of consoles: PS2/GP2/GP2X/PSP/WII and now PS3.

    In this case it is based in the GP32 port, including the famous geohot MP3 “The Light It Up Contest” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iUvuaChDEg)

    I think it is a very funny song ^^ and is suitable for the symbolism of this respository (also i use a black background representing the PS3).
