    Yeah basically the way the main CPU or processor is layed out dictates exactly how you need to program for it, and since they hired IBM to make a high efficiency CPU, it's different than what you have in your PC or phones, and it makes it much more difficult to program for it. Since these people who are porting over different code to the PS3, it's like someone handing you a bible in English, and expecting you to write it in Japanese... except you have no dictionary, and you have to figure out all the vocabulary on your own.

    That's funny, probably left over code from the developer they hired to do their porting from Netflix company

    on a side note, if anyone is curious or interested, Netflix ported WebKit to the PS3 originally (so i hear) and many apps use a WebKit SPRX or have code in EBOOT or Javascript/XML/INI, etc. I have done some testing just from curiosity and as long as the app is not loading Silk, and is loading WebKit, the entrypoints from the PS3 Playground test page and GitHub and exploits should also work on them. Although from my tests I have not got a kernel crash yet, I can get NetFlix, PSN Store, and other apps to behave "badly" :evil:

    Maybe he will be successful and keep it to himself, but that's the developers decision, it's not like they get paid for their releases.

    I used to have netflix but i stopped, price increase and hardly found stuff I like watching, mostly used it for anime. But i heard it was unable to use without signing into psn which I didn't like. Besides wii u had gamepad mode so it was my go to for awhile. (If only game pad had better louder speakers, or bluetooth headphones, hope switch comes through) :ninja:

    What is the exploit exactly? CFW?

    Definition "a software tool designed to take advantage of a flaw in a computer system, typically for malicious purposes such as installing malware."
    In this case it would be used to install CFW while still on the newest OFW

    Exploits can vary, I want to know how this exploit benefits us. Possibly it's for CFW but no one has said anything yet. :(

    Interesting.
    I thought the PS3 scene was slowly dying.

    Does this mean that 4.81 will be the new 3.55?

    I'm just mainly waiting for the exploit to release just to buy a super slim, since the only PS3 I have is a Fat one and ylod me months ago :(

    Would be interesting. I have a CFW PS3 running Rebug, but it's a launch machine. It has hardware PS2 compatibility which is great, but those old models seem like ticking time bombs before they YLOD. I've replaced the thermal paste in mine and increased the fan speed to be sure, but I'd certainly consider a Super Slim instead if it were exploitble.

    I'm surprised this thread isn't blowing up that much.

    Well, the thread at PSXHAX is blowing up.

    Would be cheaper to just buy an updated PS3 than to try and find another 3.55 system or pay to have my slim repaired. I really hope this does allow installation of CFW but it may be similar to the exploits on Wii U and early 3DS ones where it has to be run every power cycle, and doesn't have access to low-level things.

    I mean, what? This project in no way resembles the Hykem situation at all. Esc0rtD3w has no reason to not release the exploit, and he's constantly being updating us to how the project is going.

    Talk about being cynical, jesus christ.

    This is some awesome news :yayps3:

    I never expected this, esc0rtd3w a-we-s-o-m-e job!
    A Dreamcast scenario is what I had planned, awesome system no way to mod the gosh darn thing.
    While I do admit to being a bit bu*thurt about the Super Slim support, got my CEH-4K for € 50 about 1 year back so CFW would be a great addition.
    Anyhow lets hope at some point these seemingly uncrackable shells get cracked with great force :evil:


    Sidenote:
    I lost access to my old GBATemp account, hotmail account is gone + hotmail seems to have trouble on GBATemp.
