After a long time it finally seems that there might be a break through for the PS3 hacking scene. XVISTAMAN2005, has found a way to partially install a debug PS3 firmware on a retail PS3. Partially meaning that he has found a way to get a retail PS3 into debug mode, but currently the options are non functional.
So what is amazing about this? This gives PS3 hackers a huge new area to work with that was not previously available before, plus not to mention that devs already had a working ISO loader running on a full debug console (this method currently gives us a partial-debug console).
Whilst we are not at all interested in piracy/iso loaders the implications for PS3 Homebrew seem interesting but remember that a lot of sites claim to have exploits etc and even we have been duped so for now take any and all "exploits/breakthroughs" with a pinch of salt. Usually exploits will come from a known console hacker which has been the case down the years.
