Recently, a few hidden pictures have been found from users, that means the cracked door is opening up even more now on the Jailbroken PS3's, the new feature of accessing the official Sony Playstation FACTORY/SERVICE mode!
RichdevX's progress with his playload to put the PlayStation 3 in service mode.
*Watch the 2 screens attached* Note: those pics were added on the 23rd & 24th of september 2010 on RichDevX's tweetpic 1 & 2As shown in this first image, we can see the red box on the XMB showing that the console actually went into service mode. In this mode, it is possible to run specific software, including one allowing the downgrade (the opposite of update, ex. go back to a previous firmware). So let's say there is downgrade opportunity to go 3.15 for the benefit of new and more otheros hack with PSGroove. Payload through this, it is also possible to run each time you start the console, loading a .self file from a USB key as explained above. This could allow the hack using only one time a dongle or other, then your USB stick could complete the task alone. Advances in the underground world push the limits even further, *watch this*.
