    my dad works for nintendo.
    the rebug team (the team that develops the rebug custom firmware for ps3) just updated their website with news about releasing all their tools as open source from now on...
    they want to attract more developers

    at first while reading i thought it was a goodbye letter... but hopefully this just means the ps3 scene needed a little refresh/shaking; as a recent owner of ps3, (and since the ps4 doesn't support ps3 games lots of people kept their previous console) i hope the ps3 scene will still last years

    read it all here:

    what is gbatemper's opinion about the ps3 scene?

    Pretty awesome! I am still thinking about downgrading and getting Rebug CFW for PS3 myself, and it's always nice to also see how the hacks are made! :D

    if you are on cfw you don't need to downgrade... you can update directly to rebug since its based on last firmware, when i purchased my ps3 it had ferox cfw, i directly updated to rebug

    I'm on 4.78 at the moment and I have a CECHK03 PS3 (unmodified; I may be purchasing an E3 sometime soon)

    if only we could hack SS PS3, then everything on PS3 Scene would be PERFECT T- T

    EDIT: Out of topic, but we can note that Hykem have a long history on PS3 Scene, hopes for it IOSU Hack Release SOON :grog:

    the disadvantage of getting a console pre-hacked is not learning how to do it :(
