Who am I? I'm Louie! I have a Masters in Cyber Security & Networking, Bachelors of Business and a Bachelors of Commerce. I am currently undertaking a PhD in Cyber Security.

So while I am certified in many others areas I have been repairing and modifying Playstation consoles since 2008. I have also been a part of the psdevwiki community, developing software and techniques to downgrade the PS3.

I currently still develop validation software for the PS3, PS4 and now PS5 (BwE NOR Validator) (See the Downloads page). I have also released some of my repair software on GitHub.

Basically, I help a global community of PSX repairers diagnose and repair software based issues for the PS3, PS4 and PS5!

I repair using professional reworking and soldering equipment and all of my parts and chips are original. Most repairs can be done overnight if not on the spot! I also accept B2B repairs in bulk.

Hey! Don't forget I can also fix just about any PCB - just let me know the issue and I will see what I can do! Hard drive chips? Car ECU? Iris Scanner? Sure!
