The old hardware attack on the ps3 otheros has a new twist or two. Which apparently is less ugly and possibly easier to add to your ps3 than the first one.
why is this shit on n4g? send it to news 4 pirates.
And yet no one complains about other articles which have no relevance to gaming whatsoever....
Yeah they do. All the time.
i think the mods are listening and iv seen a lot less rubbsih articles. hay remember the 'ps3 budled with holy bible' article. http://n4g.com/news/318291/... that was just well n4g at its best/worst.i had a good laugh. ever since the update this is the 1st bullsh*t article iv seen i think.
other articles dont teach you about illegal things so he has a point
Its not illegal to mod a console where i live. It is illegal to use pirated games though as it should be.
Except there's nothing illegal in this article. "Hacking" is not illegal, you can do whatever you want with the hardware you bought. Plus, you still can't pirate anything on the PS3, so why get upset?
That's true, to a certain extent. You can't modify something with the intent of defrauding someone else. For instance, you can smash a penny and turn it into a collectible item by running it through one of those kiosks for tourists that you see sometimes. Why can you do this? Isn't it illegal to deface US currency? Only if you're doing it for fraudulent purposes. Regular electronics work the same way. Sure, you can modify your own purchase. Nothing wrong with that. But, if you're doing it in order to defraud someone else (for instance, modding your iPhone, PSP or Xbox 360 in order to pirate games), then it's illegal. Come on, people, this is common law...you should have learned this in college. Things aren't legal or illegal just based on what you think it should be. Use your brains.
It's kind of like reporting on a bank robbery and details how the robbery happened. You are telling somebody else how to do something illegal (although this isn't necessarily illegal), yet it is fine. That is because this is news and way more interesting than why x platform sucks and y platform is superior.
Yes why is this even here.
yawn let me know when they finally enable backed up games to be played (ps3 ones)
youre gonna have to wait a long time pal
"Backed Up Games"? We all know what you mean, and it's morons like you that make us lose things like OtherOS.
I'll let you know, doesn't matter if they finally "[enable] backed up games" like in 2016, right? O-T That's why All Of Us Will Never see the OtherOS Feature implemented again, EVER!
just look at Geohot too.I mean,sure guys,you're great with software ,hardware etc.we get it. you got it all figured out.maybe you should try the opposite sex now.Im pretty sure you wont have so much free time on your hands to experiment in your lair/parents basement. just saying
The only thing better than time on your hands is a great pair of tits.
ps3 is future proof why waste money if u cant afford games rent em
if you cant afford games, GET A JOB!
I hope you bunch of buttholes blow your machines into a million tiny pieces.. Then the rest of us who prefer to pay for our original software can be rid of you wastes of space
Wait, wait wait, they are doing it all wrong. Cross the GND ATME wire with PDTAN1 like this ................. (disappeared with a sudden flash).
LOL. Thanks... BTW, from the comments on that page: "it doesn't ended well... i've tried some games, but all crashed. Then i swapped the wire, but now it doesn't even start (YLOD). Maybe i broke the smd component, which was suggested in xorloser's page."
There goes keyboard support.
Hahaha Nice one. Bubbles up!
i'm actually worried ... (i sue keyboard in My chat rooms or in HOME ..i don't want the universal USB support to disapear ...
I was thinking same thing earlier this morning :P use a normal USB keyboard for my ps3 these guys better not get it removed >< not buying that rubbish PS3 keyboard.
that ps3 keyboard isnt rubbish, its actually a pretty sturdy little bugger
How would this effect keyboard support in any way. For one it's operating through the other os which even if they nixed keyboard support in the gameos would have no effect for anybody who didn't update as otheros runs on drivers and stuff for keyboard support. For two you just plain don't know what your talking about, this has next to nothing to even do with keyboards if you had actually read it. It's not a new exploit through the gameos.
its a joke... seriously duder think first
I want PSN connectivity without losing my GNU/Linux installation...
Simple. Get a PS3 Slim besides the fat. Mine was 'sponsored' by the retailer that I bought the Fat back then. They are going to claim it @ Sony. I'm back on PSN now on the Slim with 40nm and 45nm chipset, half the usage of electricity of my 80GB 65nm fatty and that fatty will be there sitting waiting for a full easy to do softmod to arrive for homebrew/emulators and more.
Why should anyone have to buy 2 devices when technically, just one is capable of meeting all their needs? Sony really did shaft a lot of people with that move.
@ Kushan I know we shouldn't. Thats what I told my retailer. I already paid 400 Euro to have the PS3 fat incl. OtherOS/Linux. If I'd had to buy the Slim to go online again (Fat not updating after 3.15), then I'd pay 300 extra and have paid 700 in total for what I thought all could do for 400/Fat only. Thats why I got my retailer to 'sponsor' my PS3 Slim 'buy' :P Whats more funny, I now got 2 PS3's, and the SLim is the latest 40nm RSX and 45nm Cell YLOD free, half the power consumption of the Fat, extra controller and new warranty... So I'm fine. But agreed, one shouldn't have to get 2 devices for something that has been claimed to do all in one with the Fatty.
Good luck waiting for your emulators LMFAO
personally. But they bought their PS3s. Let them try and do whatever they want. I do not care about otheros but taking it off was lame.
Someone should hack GeoHotz, to bits I mean. Even though that has nothing to do with this article, he's just the kind of guy I'd like to see in a real life fight.
I don't know what half of you are up in arms about. I just thought it was interesting news. If you've updated your ps3 it shouldn't matter to you. I've updated mine, but I still thought this was interesting. Get off your high horse.
i'll think about doing this to my ps3... when i have a ps4. haha
Sigh.. why do people even do this? i cant see any real use for it tbh. Looks like to much effort.. just go buy another ps3 ^^
This article is illegal and should be taken down from N4G. It is promoting piracy and should not of been allowed to be posted in the first place. I also think some butt hurt fanboy posted this in hopes of upsetting the PS3 users and fanboys on this site. I also think this fanboy hopes that if it works, then someone will be able to pirate PS3 games and they will be able to use the hack themselves for free games. So, could the mods of this site please remove this so called article? It does not belong here.
The article is not illegal. It doesn't say anything about piracy. It says stuff about modding a ps3's hardware. I posted it up. I'm never going to use it or hack my ps3 or whatever. I happily updated the other os (which I actually used on a regular basis) away. I posted this because it's news and I thought it was interesting. What you suggest is media censorship and is morally and objectively wrong. You can't get rid of news just because you don't like it.
No. What i suggest is that people like you posting this kind of crap on sites like this should not be allowed. By you posting this crap on here and then saying "It's not illegal, it's news!" does not make it OK. This is not censorship that I am talking about, this is logic and common knowledge. You do not post about a hack that MIGHT work on a site for gamers that would be more then happy to use the hack to get free games. Also you do not defend your post by saying "I'm never going to use it or hack my ps3 or whatever." and then attack me by saying I want it gone because I do not like it. It is people like you that promote piracy and then hide behind the censorship card.
If we just could vote articles away, maybe this place would become a real newssite.
It takes votes to get news onto the site, so it wouldn't help to be able to vote news away. Just the opposite would happen and all that would be left is ammunition for console warriors.
Is that like the diffrence between 'killing people' and buying a weapon with the intention to do so?its all about intention.and the intention of this article is to kill Sony business model
