Sony has released a new firmware update for the PS3 today with Official firmware 4.50. The update includes new features such as auto update and easier data transfers between your PS3 and Vita.
Here are some of the features included in the 4.50 firmware update:
- Auto download of system software updates has been expanded to support all PSN users.
- Auto download support of purchases made on the Web Store will be made available to all PSN users.
- New options for trophy privacy settings allow users to set which trophies are visible.
- Data can now be transferred from PS3 to PS Vita using wi-fi and ethernet connection.
The data transfer update for the PS3 and Vita seems to be a good addition since transferring files to a PS Vita seems to be a pain, you need to install the PlayStation Content Manager in your PC to do this. The auto download for system software updates also looks like a good update which was only available for PlayStation Plus Subscribers before the 4.50 update.
You can get the update via your PS3 or you can download it using your PC from Official PlayStation website here.
For PS3 CFW users, you might want to skip this update because in doing so will remove all the homebrew capabilities of your console and it would be harder to install cfw again. We can always wait for an updated version of 4.50 CFW when Rogero releases an update.
Badwolf Outfitters is currently on a campaign with Indiegogo for their Pandora Carryall prototype and they are still looking for backers for their prototype to begin production. The bag is designed with the techie in mind, it features pockets, usb ports, a solar panel and other features a techie with a lot of gadgets will surely like.
The bag itself looks quite promising, as the Pandora Carryall is outfitted with tools for your gadgets in one convenient carryall. Although I have yet to hold one, judging from the images and info about the tech specs from their website already gives you an idea who the Pandora Carryall is targeted at. And as a techie myself, I always carry my gadgets along with their chargers, accessories and other peripherals all jumbled up in my old backpack. And having a bag that is outfitted exactly for a techie is perfect to be able to organize all your gadgets and its accessories in one neat and cool looking bag. Continue reading »

Now that it seems everyone has updated to iOS7, let’s take a look back at how the first version of iOS and it’s predecessors has evolved into what we have now in iOS 7 with this nice GIF.
The changes brought by iOS 7 feels like you just got a new phone, and not everyone is pretty happy with it. There are hundreds of improvements or changes that has been brought by iOS7 that unfortunately we cannot see from the image above. Such as the control center (which i like) that looks like it was taken from an android device. Some people find the new icons a little bland, but so far from experience, it will just take a little getting used to.
Oh and before we go, you would need to update your iTunes if you have upgraded to iOS 7 in order to sync using your computer. (You can always sync over WiFi if you have this enabled)
As with previous Grand Theft Auto games, cheats always makes the game way lot more interesting and a way lot more fun. Here we have GTA 5 cheats for the PS3 and Xbox 360. In GTA V, you enter the cheats directly using your controller unlike in Grand Theft Auto IV where you need to use your phone and enter the cheat codes.
Things to remember:
* You need to enter the codes fairly quickly
* A small confirmation will appear when you have enter the cheat correctly
* Using cheats codes will disable Achievements and Trophies.
* You will need to enter the weather cheat multiple times to toggle through Rain, Cloudy, Clear Days and Snow.
* You can now spawn multiple vehicles at a time.
Rockstar is reprotedly investigating an incidence that some retailers has not followed Grand Theft Auto 5’s official street date release last weekend. Grand Theft Auto V has an official release date of September 17, 2013 but some people have claimed to have received their copies of the game earlier over the weekend.
The retailer in question is Amazon UK where the online retail giant has shipped copies of the game a few days ahead the official release date, much to the enjoyment of the consumers. The reports come from some photos that has been posted online via Twitter and Instagram showing their supposed copies of GTA 5.
Rockstar has released a statement saying that they are: “in the process of investigating early ‘sales’ to determine how and why that is occurring.”
Tech4idiots did a little snooping around and found out that copies of Grand Theft Auto 5 is already available on some popular file sharing websites and forums. Whether the copy of the game that is now available online is US or EU versions is unknown. And as far as information goes, Grand Theft Auto V runs on 4.30 CFW and above.
A little envious since the rest of us have to wait until the 17th to get our own copies of the game from our favorite game shops.
Don’t we just hate it that next-gen consoles does not support previous gen games? And that when the console actually does support previous gen games, the compatible games titles are very limited.
And for the PS3, only the older 20GB, 60GB and 80GB models can play PS2 games. The newer PS3 models including the PS3 Slim and Super Slim PS3s are not backwards compatible with PS2 games due to hardware incompatibilities (they did not include the chips used for hardware emulation). And even when you have a backwards compatible model, not all PS One and PS2 games can be played on the PS3, you can check the list of playable PSone and PS2 games here.
But thanks to Homebrew, it’s now possible to play almost every PS2 game on a PS3 running custom firmware.
Here’s how to play PS2 games on your PS3:

UPDATE! Rogero has released an update with Rogero 4.50 v1.00 CFW.
Rogero has been busy these past few days, just after releasing Rogero 4.46 v1.00 cfw he has release a new version of his popular PS3 CFW with Rogero 4.46 v1.01 cfw. The 4.46 v1.01 is just a minor update that adds a Toolbox for StealthMan.
Rogero 4.46 v1.01 CFW is pretty much identical to 4.46 v1.00 with only the added stealthman toolbox.
One important note:
Some user have been reported that PSOne games does not work with Rogero 4.46 v1.01, which is odd because PSOne games run perfectly well on 4.46 v1.00. But rest assured that Rogero is working on a fix for this. So in case you still want to play your PSOne games, you can skip this update for the meantime. And if you have already updated to v1.01 and want to downgrade to 4.46 v1.00, you can always downgrade to 3.55 using Rogero’s downgrader.
Here’s how to install Rogero 4.46 v1.01 CFW:
After updating to Rogero 4.46 cfw, users have reported that Multiman (and all other older versions) is having problems loading their backed up games. Even though Deank has been silent and seems to be having some time off from the homebrew scene, he has released a new version of multiman with Multiman 4.46.01 to help fellow PS3 custom firmware users who are having problems.
Here’s whats included in the Multiman 4.46.01 update:
* Now supports 4.46CFWs,
* Updated Turkish translation language file
* Fixed BD movie region support for 4.41CFWs.
* Updated explore_plugin.sprx for 4.46 to avoid Trophy display misalignment
