    If you ever owned a PlayStation3 Phat back in the day, chances are that your nostalgic brain remembers the orchesta tune, that Sony implemented back in the PlayStation3 lifespan, until the firmware 2.80.

    With the introduction of the PlayStation3 Slim and Firmware 3.00, Sony decided to unify the systems firmware and thus creating a uniform ecosystem, by replacing the signature Phat Orchestra Tune/Coldboot and Gameboot, with the more modern redesign of the PS3, thus removing the iconic PLAYSTATION3 and Sony Computer Entertaniment (Gameboot/Coldboot).

    This tutorial aims to bring thoes of you nostalgic fans, back to memory lane of 2006, as well as a little bonus.

    Very good post! I also recommend this muted coldboot (see attachment).

    The coldboot sound can be very annoying if you are developer/modder that have to reboot the console multiple times.

    Well, I sometimes get crazy still hearing the violins in my mind after like 50 reboots in a single hour while I'm testing webMAN...
    To mute the TV volume is not an option for me... I would have to be muting/unmuting the TV the same number of reboots ;)

    Ok, 50 reboots in an hour... I don't reboot that many times, maybe max 10 a day. That's crazy many times dude :D

    the sound can be a pita. I think you have around 10 seconds. if done incorrectly, sound might come out as bloop/bleep at the very end of the coldboot.

    BTW, just a little question, how long have you been in the scene? Like have you been here since the beginning of CFW (2010-2011ish)?
    Exactly what I thought :D Yre awesome @aldostools

    I have been in "the scene" approximately since 1998-1999 (+20 years) when I started to hack the "Connectix Virtual Game Station" and create tools for the PSX emulators (that's why my nick name is aldo's tools). I skipped PS2 scene. In 2004, I hacked my PSP and made a couple of projects for PSP in LUA, and have been in PS3 scene since January 2007. Initially passively, then more active creating tools for multiMAN, then modifying Iris Manager and later webMAN and Cobra.

    Maybe you tried to copy to dev_flash via FTP and it failed as no write access? You need to copy to dev_flash mounted as dev_blind or dev_rebug to have write access.

    Yes, its fine, you cant write to or delete from dev_flash.

    dev_blind or dev_rebug is the same partition as dev_flash, but you can write to it when it has one of those names.

    Coldboots works,no matter the firmware version, as long as the entry files are compatible,which with the firmware 3.00 and upwards they all are, within the Dev_Flash, Gameboots in the other hand needs to be optimized for firmware specific, otherwise it will display problems, or wont work at all.

    So while surfing the web,i stumbled across some intresting video from PSM3, if any of you 90s kids remember, PSM or PlayStation Magazine,was a PlayStation Magazine published in the 90s during the PS1,PS2 and PS3 era,which usualy came bundled with demo discs.

    During the PlayStation3 launch in 2006, PSM received a Pre-Production Debug PlayStation3,from the looks of it and the chassis transparency it doesnt look like a DECHA00A, although it has the Debug functionality enabled, although it looks like a CBEH1000 or a CBEH1100, anyway the model doesnt matter,but what its worth looking its the Pre-Production XMB shipped with it, from the looks of it its either a 0.090 or a 0.095 XMB, notice the different Start-Up tune, the delayed Sony Computer Entertaniment Coldboot, and the PLAYSTATION3 Gameboot wave transparency without any sound, neat stuff for devs to explore and recreate.

    If either of you have knowledge on what version of the firmware it might be, your contribution its greatly appreciated
