    Yes, it's real.
    All that's required is a PS3 with a NOR flash type (ALL slims, and the later fats), Progskeet or Teensy++, soldering skills, and various free programs like a hex editor.

    Personally, I can't do it, I'm not good enough to solder in a progskeet, but for anyone here who is, go for it, it's entirely legit.
    I'm waiting for the inevitable softmod-after-hardmod to come.

    Discussion there, this thread is meant to be an alerter for those that don't commonly browse User Submitted News, which is over half.

    And gee, imagine that, a link not in the PS3 Hacking section, so more than half the people intersting in PS3 hacking won't see it. I've said this before, and I'll say it again, I do not consider that a valid forum to count as "Already been posted", since so many people on GBATemp won't even see it due to the fact it's a forum for ALL news, including non-video-game news.
    I will, however, add it to my OP and tell them to dicuss it there.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    +1 it applies often news go by and if we don't come on the forum for a few days we don't ever see them

    Umm no it's not.

    Not many people browser the PS3 Hacking part of the forum, let alone half. In fact, USN is viewed even more then this part. So I kinda find it hard for anyone to not see it.


    It doesn't matter whether or not it's post here or there, it's still news, and it was there first, so no need for a another thread.
