Our Interview Series is a full success. Not only can you get an in-depth look behind all the great projects each of those developer's have worked on in the past and their plans into the future, but also that you can get a useful overview with all important Homebrew Releases made by the developer's which will help you if you want to get the "Full Experience" from your hacked Console's and devices. For instance, we learned in our last Interview with developer @aldostools that he created the "Tools Collection" for the PS3, which contains OVER 50+ TOOLS! But while we had interviewed candidates before, who developed their projects after a Hack/Exploit was released, we thought about introducing you to another side of development, namely those, who make it possible for those previously mentioned developers to create their Homebrew running on your hacked devices. And since this mentioned "Tools Collection" contains mainly Tools for your hacked PS3, it would be only fair to give you an in-depth look with one of the developers of the PS3Xploit-Team, who helped reanimating you and your PS3 with all those great projects. This developer work includes participation in projects like the Flash Writer's that provide the ability for CFW Installation, then "PS3HEN" which brought Homebrew Support for "nonCFW Models" and also the variety of tools and dumpers released from the PS3Xploit-Team. So, without further waiting, our Guest Today is no other than Developer and long-time Community Member - @esc0rtd3w!

Hello @esc0rtd3w, and welcome to our new "The Power Supply"-Series, where we like to introduce an inside look from the Developers to our audience with an Interview.
Right at the beginning, I have to admit that everyone should already know that you are one of the masterminds behind "PS3Xploit". But for those people who don't, would you like to introduce it to the readers? What makes it so special compared to other Hacks and Exploits for the PlayStation 3?
When we get deep into the technical details of "PS3Xploit", then we should admit that using a "Kernel and/or Web Exploit" as a loophole wasn't the first time we saw this method running on a PlayStation Console. Tell us what was the attention of you and the others tinkering with such a method on the PS3. Was it because of the success you saw on both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita? Or are they using complete different Exploits and we can't compare "apples to oranges"?
The last months showed us that you are also involved in all these wonderful releases behind "PS3HEN", which many people suprised that not only you can now run Homebrew on newer System Firmwares, but also the fact that there was - and is - still such a huge interest in the Development for the PS3. Did this huge interest suprised you as well and if so, why do you think that there is still such a great demand for Homebrew running on the PS3 - especially when we compare this to the poor Releases we got for the PS4?
Before "PS3Xploit" got released, we didn't saw any new Hacks or Exploits for the PS3 by nearly 7 years since the most famous System Firmware 3.55 got hacked. But what's more interesting, it seems that Sony isn't such interested anymore in fixing those loopholes like they did in the past or when we compare this to other consoles from the PlayStation family nowadays. In fact, we saw that Sony is even fixing loopholes from the PS4 Blu-ray Drive, which wouldn't lead into any Piracy anyway, as we learned by the great talk from oct0xor back at 36C3. What do you think why Sony is reacting like described? Is it just because the PS4 is now their main top seller on the market? Or does Sony lacks in manpower because of the complexity of the PS3 architecture and no one knows anymore how to fix your Exploits properly?
With such many projects you had in your mind, people will be happy to read how you get into the scene? Maybe you can tell us about your very first project you worked for. Was it even developed for the PS3 or for another console?
Speaking about other consoles, is there any other interesting console you work for currently or any other project, which has been already released?
What's your opinion about other consoles and its communities in general, like the Nintendo Switch for instance. The PlayStation 5 is also not far away from a release. Tell us about your favourite consoles you liked to both work and to play for. And how about your favourite games you liked to play? Any retro consoles/games you enjoyed in the past as well?
I think the people would like to come to know better the guy behind all this work you did for this scene. What are you doing when you don't play video games or when you don't tinker with all the consoles you mentioned before? Any interesting hobbies or other interests you like to share?
Since you are also a member of the PSX-Place-Community, our readers would probably like to know, what has drawn you to join us?
In our new interview series, we would like to make these interviews also a little bit helpful to the readers, especially for those who wants to develop something for the very first time from ground up. Where do you suggest someone to start with? Do you have any tips for those new inspiring developers?
Final Question. A few months ago, you helped me personally via Twitter on my very own PS3 (thank you for that <3). Maybe you want to share a good tip - kinda like a "Tip of the Day" - to the community to one of your projects or to the Homebrew Scene in general?
Alright, Thank you very much esc0rtd3w for attending to this Interview. It was a pleasure to come to know better to you and all your hard work you achieved for this scene! Have a great day!
To sum up what Releases Developer @esc0rtd3w already worked for, we would probably need another whole article to do that. Nevertheless, here is a Overview for all important Quick Links we mentioned before in our Interview:
Click here to get the newest "PS3Xploit Hybrid Flash Writer (HFW) Ver. 4.85", including the newest "IDPS & Flash Dumpers"
which will allow you to install a Custom Firmware from System Firmware 4.85!
Developer @esc0rtd3w was also always a hard-working man to provide you with various "PS3Xploit Tools & Utilities", no matter if you wanted to "swap your XMB with the official ★ Debug Settings", or when you wanted to give "your XMB an fresh look with custom made background waves", for instance.
And for those who have a "nonCFW Slim" or a "Super Slim Model", there is of course help available as well. Click here to enjoy the latest "PS3HEN Ver. 3.0.0" to enjoy the latest Exploits on mentioned PS3 Models. And not only that. There is also a great "All-In-One Guide" for newcomers as well!
Thanks to @esc0rtd3w, there is a good amount of Applications mentioned in the Interview,
which will run on your PS3 without the need to be connected to the PSN Servers, called as "NoPSN Patches".

[UPDATE 4] PS3 Toolset by bguerville: A powerful collection of tools fueled by new PS3 exploitUpdate (4) Now supporting 4.86 Fully & Issue fixed with NAND console's in rare situations
You may recall a recent article revealing a few exclusive screenshots of bguerville's latest project, now the time has come to introduce the next evolution in PS3 Jailbreaking solutions. The PlayStation 3 Toolset by @bguerville is a new suite of tools, built upon a new PS3 exploitation framework & fueled by a new exploit discovered on the PS3 by the developer. The new exploit (and the toolset project as a whole) is compatible with all PS3 models running 4.82 - 4.86 OFW/HFW/CFW
While ps3xploit team member's @habib continued research and development of PS3HEN for nonCFW models with assistance from @esc0rtd3w, @bguerville meanwhile was working on his own research and developing other tools and exploits as you will see with this new PlayStation 3 Toolset, which thorough testing was conducted by @esc0rtd3w (whom we recently interviewed). All the team of talented devs have done some amazing work in the scene in recent years with all the PS3Xploit projects and that trend continues with this release.
The PS3 toolset is a project that @bguerville has been working on for some time,
the developer gave us a brief timeline of events since the Ps3Xploit Tools 2.0 framework (flash writer and dumper(s)) that led to this new release (see the timeline section).Continue reading

Here is v3 of the latest PS3 Hack to hit the PS3 Scene with the recent release of PS3HEN. This exploit for nonCFW console's provides homebrew support and a number of Custom Firmware intangibles for those console that can not install a traditional CFW, with those being lat production PS3 Slim models and all of the SuperSlim Consoles. While this is a tremendous release and breakthrough the information behind PS3HEN has been lacking and has served more questions then answers that could be provided. This is due in the way this was delivered and presented. We paused the reporting this on the frontpage until we were pleased with the documentation. So we took it upon ourselves to get the ball rolling on a new PS3HEN F.A.Q. detailing various aspects and info that will be useful for PS3HEN user's. Also we have started forming the PS3HEN Homebrew & Plugin Compatibility Chart
Version 3.x.x has come with a number of new additions for a better experience. Some of the new changes provide full PS3ISO Support ,As well as full BDISO and DVDISO support has been added, plus new improvements to PS3HEN's stabiliContinue reading
