forum to discuss & share PS3 Hacks, Mods, Upgrades & Accessories.

have you swapped your stock hard drive for something bigger ? have you installed linux on your ps3 ? do you have a keyboard, mouse or other input device that suits the ps3 so well you just have to share ? then go ahead, plenty of people here want to hear about it.

my next ps3 upgrades will include a playtv adapter, samsung 500 gig hdd & i'm now considering installing yellow dog linux for a bit of fun after adding the bigger hdd, have any of you attempted this ?

i've also been tempted by those fragfx mouse thingies for the ps3, any of you have one ?

I have a frag FX, and imo don't bother...They are ok and do the job, but if your expecting mouse like precision, forget it. The FX translates the stick movements into mouse control so it's no where near a PC cod4.
If you still want to try it Graph, i'll sell you mine (perfect condition, only used a few times) just make me an offer :D tbh i'd take anything *hint hint*

lol the temptation got the better of you aswell. I bought one, used it maybe twice and now its collecting dust

First thing I did when I bought my PS3 was upgrade the HDD (I cant remember if it's 350 or 500) and buy a powered 7-port USB hub. I also bought some GioTeck Real Triggers and they are seriously the best thing I ever bought! You can buy them off 365games.co.uk for AUD$5 and get them shipped out for free, or some of the game shops here sell them. Once you've tried them you just can't go back. This is them:
YouTube - PS3 Gioteck Real Triggers Sixaxis controller Mod

I installed YellowDog Linux back when I upgraded my HDD (it's easier to do it when upgrading, because otherwise you'll have to format your HDD). I've booted into it about 3 times in total lol. Then again I'm hooked up to a projector, if you were connected to a TV then it might be more convenient... but I doubt it. It's an interesting thing to play around with I guess, there's potential there especially with respect to emulation for games where a mouse would be good. In my case I've just never gotten around to it though.

No, provided it's the same PS3 you lose nothing. BUT you will need a USB2 external hard drive. You use the PS3 Backup menu function to back up your current small HDD to the external one. Then you switch off the PS3, remove the old HDD, and insert the new HDD. It tells you you need to format the drive, you do, and then you use the PS3 Restore function to restore from the external drive to your big new shiny internal one.

The HDD upgrade itself is easy, just make sure you have the correct size screwdriver since the screws they use in the PS3 for HDD mounting have notoriously soft heads that are easy to strip. Make sure that when you're undoing them that most of your force is going downwards into the screw head so that it bites well, and then gently apply torque (still maintaining the heavy downwards pressure) to unscrew them.

As to dust, I just use a kitchen towel to wipe my PS3 down once every couple of months. You can buy them for a couple of bucks at the supermarket guys, there's no need for full body condoms :p

And trust me on the Gioteck Triggers guys, they are the shiznit. :rocking:

sounds pretty straight forward then. just a couple more questions

- I have an external usb2 HDD with stuff on it already (still got plenty of space) but do i have to format this to create a backup of my ps3 hard drive?

- and when you do the back up does ALL your saved games get transferred across? reason im saying this is there are a number of games that wont let you back up your save data for it

Yes, it will erase the external drive when you do the backup so you will need to clear the stuff off it first.

As to save games, they should ALL be copied across when you use backup/restore, even the ones you can't normally copy off, but as always caveat acriu. The ones you can't normally copy are encrypted to only work on your PS3, but because you're backing up to the same PS3 all of the encryption parameters are unchanged so they'll still work. That's the theory. If you have precious save games I'd do some extra research just in case.

Had a guy go 180-11 in a TDM other night using an aim bot. Kill cams were ridiculous.

PC COD4 annoys me now, it's ridiculous and the movement of players is so unrealistic. Real soldiers just do not move like that and jump around like monkeys.

I have a 250GB internal HDD, an external 500GB HDD for media, an external 250GB for back up & an external 60gb for por......uhhh yeah.
Also have a vertical light stand that glows real purddy.
A pretty unknown feature (well underused) is to use game discs to update firmware,hardly anyone seems to bother though.

i tried to install some version of Linux on my rig a while ago; fucked it up and now it just lingers, taking up space. tried formatting and can't get rid of it lol. i'd jumped in the deepend in that what was already hard (installing linux) was made harder by the fact that the version i installed was the newest (older versions are easier to install). i'll fix it eventually.

i purchased a logitech keyboard for 110 delivered off ebay. It connects via bluetooth and has a laptop touch pad thingy on the side of it. It is designed for the PS3 and is awesome but cant remember the name of it. I also have internal 500g HD and 1TB external for adult entertainment. :)

In a week of cod4 on PC i haven't seen 1 cheater.

PC differs in a few ways - most servers increase TDM to 20 min. games, there are alot more modded maps and aiming (especially sniping) is so much easier.

The game just feels freeer than the ps3.

With YDL I had to edit a config file to get the video to work correctly at 1280 x 720. Lol, wtf? There's only 2 res' that people are going to run YDL at (1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720), and I need to edit a text file to switch between them? :hammer:

That's always a cheap option, just remember to get one with a PS button (or adaptor with equivalent) and don't forget that they won't have motion sensing, which can be an issue for some games. I had a friend who couldn't get past the part in Killzone 2 SP where you have to turn the wheel; he was ropable but I just cracked up when he told me about it. :laugh:

1/ Save your Call of Duty 4 game save onto your memory stick (Game > Save Data Utility > COD4 > Copy)
2/ Plug your memory stick into your PC
3/ Open the memory stick (E:/)
4/ Open the folder 'PS3'
5/ Open 'SAVEDATA'
6/ Open 'BLES00148-AUTO-' (or whatever number it is, depends on your country)
7/ Find the file 'GPAD0_CM'
8/ Open it in Notepad
9/ In the first line, you should see 'set gpad_buttonsConfig'
10/ In the speech marks ("") just after 'set gpad_buttonsConfig' replace 'buttons_default" with "createfx".
11/ Save the file
12/ Then go to the bottom right hand corner and click on 'Safely Remove Hardware'
13/ Click your USB stick then click 'Stop'
14/ Plug your USB into the PS3
15/ On your PS3 find Game > Save Data Utility > Memory Stick
16/ Copy your hacked game save onto your original one
17/ Start up COD4
18/ Join a game
19/ Turn off your controller
20/ Turn on your controller
21/ Press 'Start' then click 'Options' whilst in game
22/ then you will have UFO mode on






jut re-read it, pretty sure thats just the flying code. no killing

you guys seriously don't remember cod4 getting fücked by IW just as w@w was able to be pre ordered ? almost identical timing to the EASY to produce HACKS which you can't call hacks because you're only altering one file line & using actual words to do it - ie. it's there on purpose.

*sigh*


graph, these "hacks" have been happening since the release of cod4. it was coded by a bunch of monkeys hence the easy ability to alter lines and change game play.

as for why it is happening now, these hacks have always happened. but this time the game has been out for over 2 years, people are looking for more way to have fun with it (hacking), there are more players, and those hacking are more willing to pass on the information where as before it stayed via PM only.


you need to ease up on the michael moore docco's brudda lol

have you had cod4 since release ? i have & yes at the start there were aim bot hacks, turbo fire hacks, god mode hacks etc but they weren't easy to enable (took a stack of file altering) & they were done on the ps3s saved user data.

an update was released for cod4 which placed all the cod4 user data in the cloud (no longer on the ps3) & it's downloaded prior to each game & all the cod4 ps3 hacking ended because you can't alter a file you have to dload every time you connect to the daemonware servers.

this new 'hack' if you can call it that takes about 6 characters to enable on a single command line & includes in game options of enabling & disabling it. it's been placed there on purpose by the people that produced the game, unlike the real hacks that have been stopped.

go sign up to next gen update if you'd like to learn about trying to hack cod4 & you'll see why user hacking no longer works. it's also interesting to read all the old hacks there & see what was actually involved to get them to work.

err but there hasnt been an update on cod4 in ages. how did the developers add this in then? I dont think there is any conspiracy here.

lol...................


ive been a member there for nearly a year, and been browsing the forums for longer ;)

so yes gx, i am well aware of the hacking process. but your wrong, simply deleting updates/patches, altering date on the ps3 give you the ability to bypass any updates.... people have been doing this for years. hence hacking HAS been going on for years.

all that is happening now is IW havent released a patch to combat it yet so there is no need to avoid it. making life easier....

have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe IW are busy designing the biggest release in years and they havent had a chance to fix anything, or the need???lol

every time you connect to the matchmaking servers you receive a file (you may have seen it saying 'downloading game settings').

@ rhys: so basically you've never seen any of the cod4 hacks such as aimbots & tubofire ?

altering the date on the ps3 doesn't work for games that store your data online, theoretically you could leave your ps3 on 24/7 & remain connected but the servers have gone down several times since they added the fix, so therefore all the old hacks no longer work.

last week no one was flying around, this week everyone is. this isn't a hack, it's an update, almost as stupid as the w@w update that added rainbow psns to the lobby.

it is not an update lol. me and rhys troll around the nextgen boards on a regular basis to see what the latest goss is. This hack has been a long time coming. These hacks have been around for ages after they were patched but were only able to be used in private lobbies. it is only recently they figured out how to get them to work in pub games

I agree with Graph to. I reckon its like those coloured names in w@w which came in over night.

I dont think there was any previous talk about those coloured names until it came out, so like these hacks they came out of random and were put in my the developers and have been discovered and now the hype has begun.

Not sure. Try downloading the 3.15 firmware update (http://au.playstation.com/ps3/support/system-software/detail/item249462/Update-features-%28version-3-15%29/) on a computer and then transferring it to the PS3 via a flash drive maybe. The .PUP file has to be put into a very specific directory on the Flash drive though:

YOURFLASHDRIVENAME --> PS3 --> UPDATE --> the PUP file

this seems to be the issue, i have passed on the info and will get back to you with a result, seem this information is never a part of the tutorials on youtube.

I'm not sure I follow exactly what you're trying to do: you have two PS3's, and you're putting a new (blank) hard drive in one and his old hard drive in the other, and want to transfer all of the data from his old hard drive to the blank one, is that correct? If that's right I think it's just a case of both machines needing to have the 3.15 firmware installed, since that's the firmware that introduced the direct transfer feature.

laptop size (2.5")
SATA interface

The rest i believe is up to you.

The rest i believe is up to you.

There's also a height requirement: 9.5mm. That's the most common height but make absolutely sure that the HDD you're buying is 9.5mm.

There's a good guide to the process here:

One that fits the dimensions and has the largest size is 500GB. Cost you about $100-$150.

You can actually go up to 640GB if you want: http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/58444_Western_Digital_WD6400BEVT_2_5__SCORPIO.aspx

That's currently the largest that the PS3 will accept.
