Blue ray firmware update on the PS3

So I got a Star Trek 11 Blue Ray Sunday. It already came with a strange “package insert”, indicating that if the disc was manufactured after the purchase of the Blue-ray player, a firmware “configuration update” may be required. Of course it was on my only Blue-ray player, which happens to be a Sony PlayStation 3. So normally I try to avoid firmware updates on the PS3, in order to use as much “out-of-spec” features under (T2) Linux, such as GPU access, as possible. However, well, now I had to bite that bitter pill.

Also very interesting how the parties speak about “configuration” instead of cryptographic key update, …

Fortunately others are currently hacking into the hypervisor for all the goods of it.

Let’s hope this also brings Linux onto the Slim :-)
