SONY Actually Want Consoles To YLOD?
SONY Actually Want Consoles To YLOD? –
Due my reserach for a CFW I noticed an interesting string in a .RCO file (system_plugin.rco).
The system has become hot. Please turn off the system and wait a while before turning it on again.
So my thought is: Could the PS3 have prevented most of the YLOD cases, as there should be a function to shutdown the PS3 when it is too hot?
Seems so, but well - someone may want to make profit.
Woww, i always knew sony was doing bad things with this ylod crap...
one more reason not to go online on PSN anymore for me...
Boycott SONY !!!
Normally I let SKFU crap side, because 99% of it is pure bull shit, he has no idea how to hack a toothpick to clean his teeth.
But this one I going to crap all over it, because it is really clear he has no idea of the PS3 system or it's design.
That "message" is in the lvl2 Game OS, and it in the 360 also.
On the PS3 it appears in the top-right corner as warning message when you playing a game or watching a movie, if something TRUELY HAS GONE WRONG!
Stupid Dumb SKFU is talking out his ass as usual, claiming Sony prevents this message from appearing so that is the reason for the YLOD!
Nope, Not the case.
If you want to see the message, turn on your PS3, wrap it up in a towel, or run some duct tape across the back of the air intake or outtake, and starting playing a heavy-gpu game like Metal Gear Solid
Bang the message will appear and the system WILL shutdown, just like it should.
Every real repair person out there in the field, knows the YLOD problem is nothing to do with bad design or airflow or crazy crap like that, it is due to the thermal stress cycles (on and off) over time on the LEAD-FREE BGA joints, plus also the fact LEAD-FREE solder changes over time, even when just sitting on the shelf not doing anything.
Everything hi-end electronic wise since lead was banned in 2005, will NOW 100% fail at some future date, not just PS3's or 360's, even hi-end laptops are failing.
But back to the kernal message that SKFU has found it, it works like it should, if the heat sink compound is wrong, or the clamps are not tight, or the fan is not moving correctly, or the airflow is blocked by dirt or tight space, the message will appear once the internal temp. is too high.
End of my SKFU rant
Agreed, it's a standard failsafe message and any dickhead can see that.
That boy doesn't know his earhole from his arsehole.
lol sorry i didn't know that skfu posts were filtered here,
i won't anymore post any of his stuff untill he releases real CFW lol ! (if he ever do)
But on another side there were too many ylods on ps3's and don't tell me that sony
never thought to do such thing to get some systems back and get money back as well ?
Btw the thing about lead free is true i've seen some techinican that told me the same thing...
(they still gettin' money over yloded ps3's returned to them... just my 2cent)
i think skfu is generally hacking in a good direction, but sometimes jumps to conclusions too fast.
