Here is an application requested by Ada and maybe a few other on IRC. At first I didn't want to do it since I am lazy and didn't know anything about it. After they linked me to the wiki page I thought I can do this though I can't test etc. I eventually started it and here is the completed app (though I personally never tested but Ada has tested and says its working). It generates a GVD file used for PlayView on the PlayStation3 and possibly other devices.

Hello PS3 Scene today i'm releasing my new ps3 tool
*Edit Start Screen Warning
*Edit Category Names
Firmware Support (CEX Support/Rebug needs to run as Custom )
Turns out SOny has found themselves in another class action lawsuit because of Killzone and PS4. People were upset that it didn't really run 1080p
Does Sony deserve being sued over the resolution of a game? Do you think that Sony will get away with false advertising or do you believe that Sony will once again get their way in court? Please let us know what you think

Guys after the video on the launch of ARK on fw 3.15 psvita, also comes the video from THEZ showing the latest work of Developer Total Noob TN v 9.6.For more details read below
wololo.net and via twitter
I plugged this together the other night, it's been working a treat since!
It's fairly simple, but thought I'd post this for clarity. The main thing is ensuring you get a decent 12v supply, taking it straight from the PSU worked pretty good for me.
Remove the old HDD, remove the BR drive (I've a 2.5k, otherwise I'd keep just the logic board in there, insulated). Find a 12v point on your board (Google "ps3 12v" or "12v jsd" etc depending on your motherboard), snip the yellow wire on the SATA extender, connect the side that's going to plug into the new 3.5" HDD and solder/crimp it (so that it now receives 12v) and the other side can be removed/insulated. Then plug it into the HDD and onto the original HDD socket (I hot glued mine, so it won't fall out).
I've drawn up a quick diagram, posted below. I'll take a picture of how mine looks under the cover and update this post when I get a chance. The red line basically shows the link from 12v output on mobo, to 12v input on HDD. The wire should ideally be 20 awg or thicker.
Finding your 12v point, should look similar to this (JSD):
More pics of my installation (I've only just put it back together after a downgrade and this mod, so didn't fully tear it down).
Planning to "push the envelope" and swap it for rubber when I've got more time, flying out tomorrow!
Also, if keeping your logic board, I covered mine in cardboard (different mod) and sealed it, to prevent a short.
I hope this helps!

Although the Playstation Portable (PSP) is a fairly dated console and has in some ways been superseded by the Playstation Vita (PSV) it does still hold some interest with gamers. To that end I decided to create a thread that would inform new users or those that find their system software (Official Firmware [OFW] or Custom FirmWare [CFW)/Lite Custom Firmware [LCFW]) out dated.
The first PSP model released. Susceptible to the Pandora battery and Magic Memory Stick (flashes a Custom Initial Program Loader [cIPL] for full CFW). Contained the following motherboards: TA079v1-3; TA081; TA082 and TA086.
PSP200x/Slim/Slim and Lite
The first update to the PSP with increased RAM (32 to 64mb). Older versions are susceptible to the Pandora battery and Magic Memory Stick but this was blocked in the last model released. Contained the following motherboards: TA085v1+2; TA088v1+2 (These four react to a Pandora battery and Magic Memory Stick); TA088v3 (Dubbed the "Unhackable" motherboard and reacts to a Pandora battery but NOT the Magic Memory Stick with cIPL) and the very rare TA090v1 (a Sony replacement board that CAN flash full CFW.)
The second update to the PSP sporting an upgraded LCD and built in microphone. This model is completely unsusceptible to the Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick. Contained the following motherboards: TA090v2 and TA093
The third and most drastic update to the PSP introducing the 'Slide' action, on-board memory and a fixed/non-removable battery (therefore negating any Pandora battery use). Contained the following motherboards: TA091 and TA094
The final instance of the PSP and is more of a downgrade than an update. It 'sports': no Wi-Fi, mono speaker and a fixed/non-removable battery. Contains the following motherboard: TA096
* The x at the end of each model name/number replaces a country code which does not affect the model in any way at all.
The good thing about the PSP is that ALL models can have CFW/LCFW installed on them. The only difference between the CHA (Completely HAckable) psp's and PHA (Partially HAckable) psp's is the method used to install the CFW or LCFW.
CHA PSP's - PSP100x (All) & PSP200x (TA085v1-2, TA088v1-2 & TA090v1)
PHA PSP's - PSP200x (TA088v3); PSP300x (All); PSPGO (All) & Street (All)
CHA psp's can install CFW or LCFW using either a Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick or via signed installers.PHA psp's can install LCFW (Only) via signed installers.
However, it must be understood that LCFW is not permanently flashed to the console and in all but one instance must be restarted after the system is rebooted. CFW however can be flashed permanently to a CHA psp and requires no restarting.
