Over at a cool mod done on a Fat Model (CECHLXX) PlayStation 3 was done by PS3 Hardware Modder Mikka, This very impressive looking mod takes a Stock Black Consoles and turns it into a gorgeous Pearl White Console. but the genius part of this mod is when you flip the cover and see instead of the memory card reader but a E3 Flasher. This is done very clean and its a very nice modification to this models PS3. Checkout below what the developer had to say and also view all the pics of this process in the links provided below.


  • Hello there, at first sorry for my bad english

    Here is my latest project, a L03 with a Cxx front cover, the chrome trim and built E3 Flasher without SATA station. It's a decent mod, nothing extreme.
    That is indeed so, but it gave me so much that I wanted to recreate it on my own way... A decent result has been important here.

    • First it was about the housing adapt. Without it provides, as from
    • After this was done, it was a perfect fit
    • Then i went to work on, the positioning and wiring of E3 flasher / E3 linker.
    • The dual boot should be possible.
    • Once that was done, followed by the preparation of the case for painting.
    • After that i went to the assembly and function of Re-examination.

    Conclusion: There was a lot of fun, but a second time, I would not do this anymore :)

    Hope you guys like it :)

I am sure everyone here knows of the website but who owns these websites? That is a very good question, and one i found my self asking a few times as i noticed the ads looked very similar for sometime now. As when comparing them to other websites such as the ones owned by CaputoMedia and the ever growing neglect and lazy approach the owner Pirate had for what was suppose to be his own website. Well the truth has come out and its very clear that Pirate does not own but is rather a puppet of CaputoMedia who was hired after the sale to maintain the site. [break]..[/break]

They asked Pirate to stay on and maintain the website as the company feared that the same type of backlash would occur when they bought up rest of the scene's popular websites of PSX-Scene / DashHacks / PSgroove .. So how do we know that Pirate no longer owns the site. Well the easiest way to confirm this is follow the money. The ads on the website all have several things in common. They are all the same and from the same company. but there is a unique identifier that can not be denied. This is called the poolid


If you search "61976" on the four websites page source, they will show that is the poolid for CPMStar (which is a Gaming ad company). This ID is unique, think of it like an account number. Some site has multiple numbers if they want to see which ads are being clicked more and all that but also many sites will use the same number for all the ads. but in this case the number is being used by all four sites. Which only happens if all the ad revenue is going to the same account.. So this is 100% factual and not any type of speculation as this is the smoking gun evidence that proves Pirate is not the owner of the website known as / As you see in the pictures included below and you can search this for yourself that all those ID match. So there you have it....
A quick update has been released to Universal Media Server bringing it to version 4.3.1. The update mostly fixes a bug when starting up the app and with it comes a few other improvements to the Windows installer itself and a couple of renderers.[break][/break]


Developer aldostools adds several new features to the popular webMAN MOD plugin. Now in this fork of deank's original plugin you have the option to add a third nethost server for network content using ps3netsrv. Also an impressive new features can be useful if you have content that you may want to hide from your younger kids or even other people in your household. With the new "Extended Content Profiles" feature you can easily hide various Mature [break]..[/break] Games or Adult content, Movies. or even setup a Kid safe profile for all your various media that webMAN can handle. This is done by adding the content in various folder and adding "_1" , "_2" extensions on your media folders. Then the developer took it a step farther and assigned some XMB button combo so you can easily switch these profiles on the fly. View all the details in webMAN MOD v1.33.07 of this update and how this new feature is used.


Here is more-less just a Proof of Concept (POC) that the Atari Jaguar can run on the PlayStation 3 Console. Well kind of,,.... Can this improve and will it improve, i have no idea. ? This emulator has speed & sound issues. Developer doobz sent me a compiled core of "Virtual Jaguar" . Which is a libretro Core for RetroArch, from the official code repository, this core is seen on other platforms that RetroArch runs on, but not the PS3. Could be for good reason or it may not of had attention yet for the PS3 from the official developers of the RetroArch/libretro team..[break],,[/break]

Do not get all excited yet. You must be hammered (if your are of age of course) to get really any enjoyment out of this due to the speed in most games, but it does shows perhaps some promise and maybe and just maybe something to look forward in the future. Consider this a POC and you have been warned that there are many issues. For your convenience i have created a standalone version of RetroArch for this POC Core. I personally have not tested many games yet but if you find one that run better then the rest be sure to tell us in the comments below.
