    From psx-scene.com:

    Modrobert is reporting on his
    site http://EurAsia.nu that the
    Slim Blu-Ray drive firmware has
    been successfully dumped by the
    Calimba/HadesTeam over at
    DemonHades.org


    So what do you guys think?i think this will only bring backup loader but no homebrew.so i am not very excited as i don't care about backup loaders,i want homebrew.

    Oh finally.

    Heh, it's strange seeing JungleFlasher detecting a blu-ray drive! [​IMG]

    This might lead to some flashed firmwares, but I fear they'd still be economically nonviable as a mean of mass piracy because of the high cost of the blank BD-R.

    We'll see.

    it smells like BS, but god i really do wish this is true

    also like the OP, not interested in backups, more into the homebrew, just imagine what you can do with the PS3 .... sex [​IMG] j/k ; but you get the pt i suppose

    i read somewhere that br-drive firmware has been dumped before but that project didn't go very far because of the difficulty to find some key or something in the phat br-drive which had 48 pin something contrary to 8 pin in slim models
