Playstation 3 Firmware 1.10 Released – Supports Homebrew!

Ps3 Firmware update

Yes, you are reading the title correctly! Sony have just released version 1.10 of the PS3’s firmware for any Japanese gamers who already have a PS3 through the use of the official Japanese PS3 site. As Japanese gamers queue up to receive their brand new PS3 consoles the big guys back at Sony have been refining the install method of the PS3’s firmware update. With PS3 firmware v1.10 being released, gamers are half way between being able to interface their PSP’s with a PS3 console. According to Sony’s PS3 Japan site, this firmware update will provide “various functional additions and strengthening of security.” Judging from the first bullet point in the overall system changes section, it looks like the Playstation Network couldn’t be accessed in v1.00…my bad. Here’s an translation from Sony’s site detailing what version 1.10 features:

Whole (overall system changes)

  • It reached the point where the service of PLAYSTATION Network can be utilized.

Other

    • As for empty capacity of the hard disk, the numerical value which calculated 1GB as the 1024?024?024= approximately 1,073,740,000 byte is indicated. Because of that, capacity than the numerical value which is stated as specification is smaller indicated in the instruction manual and the like. Setting the ⇒ [substance setting] the ⇒ you can verify the empty capacity of the hard disk, with system information.
  • PlayStation of the part in PS3 and operational status of the PlayStation®2 standard software were renewed. You can now verify up-to-date operational status with the private search sight.

In order to do the update (as you may have guessed) you will need a PS3 and an internet connection, and can find the update using the (system update) symbol in the PS3’s XMB. The PS3 will then download the update which according to the download page requires at 110MB free. You can also download the update onto your PC via Sony or from our QuickJump download site and then transferring the update which is named “PS3UPDAT.PUP” to a USB storage device and then to your PS3. We will not host the download due to legality issues which could ensue if we did so. If you are in Japan, own a PS3 and would like to get the update then make sure you visit the official Sony PS3 firmware update page before doing so, and make sure you copy the “PS3UPDAT.PUP” file to x://PS3/UPDATE folder on your console.

There’s currently a heavy discussion on this going on in our forums, with many famous names from the PSP homebrew scene working on taking a peek inside the PS3 firmware update. If you want to get involved move right on over to our PS3 forums and sound off!



UPDATE:
Looks like Sony have just released the PS3 firmware update v1.10 for US users a week before the US launch of the PS3. Get it from the link below!



UPDATE 2:
News is coming in very quickly on more PS3 developments and one great find that we have here at QJ is the launch of an Open Platform for PS3 website. Currently the site doesn’t say much except “PLAYSTATION®3 allows any desired third-party system software to be installed on it besides its system software provided by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Details will be posted on this site soon.”. We aren’t sure how long the site has been up, but we do know that it confirms what Phil Harrison said about the PS3 being ‘open platform’ back in September.

Hopefully this means that we’ll see a large homebrew scene developing with the PS3 allowing easy integration of 3rd party software. We already know that the PS3 allows you to install another operating system as we told you guys last month when we came a cross a large amount of PS3 XMB screenshots. The power of a cell processor and the graphical power of the PS3 give pretty much endless possibilities to a programmer.
