Firmware 3.30 Discoveries
I've started digging into the bits of firmware 3.30 that we can access/decrypt. I installed 3.30 on the on-board NAND in my modded PSP, then made a dump. After removing the spare blocks from the image, I extracted the registry and ran it through Skylark's parsedreg program. The results are here. That should render nicely in Firefox; IE still fails completely.
There's a 3.10 registry here for comparison. I've noticed a few interesting new things.
First, as expected, the offsets have changed, largely due to the new keys/values added. I think that the layout has been rearranged as well, so the top-level reg paths aren't in the same order. (At least, that's how it looked when I was snooping through the file.)
Next, \FONT\INFO14 seems to have been moved to \INFO14. I think this may be an artifact of a malformed registry; I'm not sure.
Next is the SUB1 path in each network connection. Previously, this was almost always empty. Now, in 3.30, the T-Mobile access point settings go here. If you use the 'free preview' account, then ... well, rather embarrassingly for Sony, the credentials for an unfortunate T-Mobile employee go here... You can also see that the SSID for the T-Mobile connection is 'tmobile-share'. It seems that wifisvc_cfg is 1 for this connection type, rather than 0 for normal connections.
For some reason, the webpage quality option doesn't seem to be there in 3.10's registry, but it is in 3.30's.
Under \LFTV, there's a new value named 'shared_remocon_setting.' No clue what that's about.
\PREMO has FOUR new values: ps3_name, ps3_mac, ps3_keytype, and ps3_key. I'm wondering if this is related to the fact that Remote Play now says "Connected to -" in the XMB; I think you may be able to connect to multiple PS3s and share some Remote Play setting between them.
There's a new top-level key, apparently... \DISPLAY, with the values aspect_ratio and scan_mode. I've been told that it's for a future PS3 feature - PSP display --> PS3 --> TV!
If anyone's got any more diggins, feel free to add :)
My sources tell me more about the PSP-->PS3-->TV connectivity...
And this is from someone I trust, and who would know this stuff for sure :)
<anon> from what i have read it may be a feature of Home, where the psp your user has in Home, will display the video from your networked unit
<anon> and allow you to play it on the screen there
<anon> to share your pics and music and video, whilst not in your apartment
<anon> so when you transfer media within Home
<anon> it is also transfered in realtime from your actual psps
