    TeaM-ACiD1C has finally released their “CFW”, which is a modified XMB, with the help of JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma’s Mount Alejandro, this can be permanently added to the PS3, here is a quote from the source:

    Finally after lots of testing TeaM-ACiD1C are proud to announce the third official release of Acid Customised Firmware .For this 3.41.010 release we have mainly concentrated on enabling some extra debug console options and developing the new Haxx category.This is only the small start of The Acid Custom Firmware WIP project and we have many more plans for the future. We wanted to get this stable version out there for more thorough testing in the wider community. Especially as things have changed since we started this project, The Holy grail for Custom firmware Developers : Just today a new homebrew app was released for PS3 that enables full write access to the dev_flash on PS3′s internal flash memory icon smile PS3 Acid Customised Firmware 3.41.010 By TeaM ACiD1C! Run from USB, or install it directly to your PS3s Flash , you decide! .You can follow the progress of AcidCFW on kbx.org where we will be releasing any new info we discover.Also from time to time we will release our latest stable versions here for download but only when we are happy they are tested enough.

    Some of the changes you will notice in Acid CFW 3.41.010:

    ★ New Haxx Category next to game

    ★ Check option for all games, PS3saves and gamedata (greyed out – Not working yet)

    ★ Quick sign Up in Haxx

    ★ Titlestore preview in Haxx

    ★ Titlestore preview (in game) in Haxx

    ★ Install Packages in Haxx

    ★ App/home in Game and Haxx

    ★ Performance Bar

    ★ No memory limit

    ★ Quick preview

    ★ Clear Cache

    ★ Owner Information for gamedata

    ★ Various Icon and text mods – POC

    ★ SaveData Ps1/2 shows up in JB mode

    ★ Custom firmware version in System info

    ★ Some other cosmetic differences

    We had a few more ideas we are working on and other things like the – No request event error -showing up which we left out for now until we can do more research and testing.

    So Now that we have FULL write access to dev_flash with JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma’s new homebrew app – Mount Alejandro this means we can permanently install Acid Customised Firmware (AcidCFW) onto our Ps3s. Of course for those who dont want to permanently mod thier consoles thats fine too, just use JaiCraB’s other tool Firmloader 0.3 to run from USB. So now we have soft-mod solution and a permanently installable way of runnning AcidCFW.

    TeaM-ACiD1C (Formerly Team Jesters Jicence):
    Cfwprophet, DeViL303, Nev, SK Group, B4rtj4h , LuckLuka.






    Ok now a few things:
    1: no still no PSN
    2: this is Not like CFW for PSP so no perma JB/homebrew/backups w/o Jbing
    3: itsd not installable like a normal update. you haveto use "Mount Alejandro" to allow Writing to dev_flash and this,, is risky no one knows What files are needed to throw it into service mode downgrade or Recovery mode. no one here at pspmod.com, PS3HaX PSGroove or PS3News or PSX-Scene are responsible if you brick your PS3 worse than trying to install cfw on an psp3k.

    if your too scared, you can use jaicrabs USB FW Loader to run from USB

    4: People still are getting "Playback of BD's is Prohibited" the loss of Bluray is a result of Downgrading

    Code:
    http://kbx.org/cfw/AcidCFWreleases/Acid-CFW-v3.41.010-TeaM-ACiD1C.rar
    Rar pass: kbx.org

    As always with the PS3 , brew PSN or CFW take it with a grain of salt!

    So much for the ps3 being unhackable.

    Awesome but not at all worth being banned, imo.

    The fact that it took this long to hack is impressive, Sony locked it down fairly well. The wii and 360 were hacked in no time at all but it took 5 years to get into the ps3.
    Very funny....not.

    slims get it back by downgrading to 2.10 then back to 3.41 but phats.. alot think it hasto do w/ the file responsible for erasing, repartitioning and reflashing the fw. theres certain licensing files in dev_flash3(data-revoke) that are getting locked against use or being misread by the FW,or making it appear as an Debug PS3 as BD video is disabled/prohibited on debugs.

    home reburnt blurays work as protection is gone.. so its a matter of Why are phat PS3s unable to process it.

    Its not suddenly more or less legal now, that makes no sense.


    If something non-lethal happens to my PS3, like the blu-ray drive dying, i'll be hacking it the next day to play games off my HDD.

    It's rumored that this is DAX's doing...Hence his sudden "death" in the PSP scene.

    Its a cool proof of concept, but its more reliable and functional to simply use a USB hack thing.
    Still, the first PSP CFWs were kinda awful too.

    atm its more a "Mod" Firmware as thats all it is .. Astetic changes. of course under it when you install homebrew is on the new Haxx catagory on the XMB and always fun to dick with debug options.

    they are working on enabling Homebrew under Acid CFW w/o the needof Jailbreaking but letme point out this alone if your allready on an Jailbreakable FW w/o having to downgrade.you dont loose Bluray. Under this though you DO see PS2/PS1 save icons and PS1/PS2 discs and under normal JB the only reason why they dont show on the XMB is because what the payloads trick the system to thinking it is. (if you look at modelset.h from the hermies Payload) an 160GB Slim debug unit.thats why PS2 appears to be gone.. and as far a si know under debug units they have no BC at all.

    but ive had PS1 PSN Titles work under JB and FFXI work (PS2 HDD Installable) so its not that its disabled or gone/removed its hidden.

    as for loss of downgrading. E3's had an update as well as Eclipse and PSJailbreak how They achive it.. Bluray isnt lost on any model.
