Swaping Blueray Lens Types?
Posted 26 May 2010 - 06:28 PM
To my surprise Sony stopped manufacturing single lens blue ray.. lenses since 2007. That means that this will forever be a big issue for my current PS3.
My question, is it possible to buy a double lens PS3 blue ray drive and just switch the boards? I know that the internals of the two boards both mechanically and technically are different, but I need to use my board seeing how I can't extract the unique keys to make it work on the new one.....
I could not find any information on this, maybe someone on here can help....

I do not think so has your drive is married to your motherboard with a key
Yeah thats why i mentioned a chip swap.But i looked into it and apparently the chip that stores the key is in a bga package and not easy to swap.And the same chip also contains the firmware to control the lens, so a swap from a single lens would render a dual lens useless, and vise-versa.
Only viable solution would be to dump,decrypt,extract,and inject a new key.
I can see this being possible in the near future, but i believe this may need to be done PC side with a special adapter.Unless we get linux back on the ps3 with lv1 access although i read an artical that suggests might only need lv2 access.
