    PlayStation 2 Software Emulator Working on 3.55 CFW Without Cobra USB

    Sponsored Links
    Today PlayStation 3 developers mysis and eussNL on the Wiki have posted a method to get the PlayStation 2 (PS2) Software Emulator working on 3.55 CFW without a DRM-infected Cobra USB dongle for all PS3 Fat and Slim consoles.

    To quote: Getting PlayStation 2 Software Emulator working

    Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

    1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
    2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
    3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
    4. It will run.

    Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

    A possible compatibility lists:
    • tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=530
    • ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Talk:Emulation#PS2.2FPStwo

    PS2 Compat. flag

    All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

    Result examples:
    Code:
    20 00 00 00 FF FF FE FF <--> a backwards compatible console
    4E 00 FF FF 0A 03 BC 3C <--> on Hypervisor Page
    4E 00 FF FF 01 07 BC BF <--> CECHJ04
    In binary formation:
    Code:
    0010 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1110 1111 1111 <--> a backwards compatible console

    XMB checks this flag and if == 0, it will give following message: "This model of the PS3 system is not compatible with PlayStation 2 format software."

    Those interested in running PS2 games on their PS3 console may also wish to check out the previous Open PS2 Loader v0.8 for PS3, PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher and PS2 HDD Support & Discless ELF Launching from PS3 XMB articles as well.

    Finally, in released news IngPereira has made available a [Register or Login to view links] and below is also a [Register or Login to view links] video and release details by SONIC_BH for those interested, as follows:

    Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

    I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





    1st - Download the file
    2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
    3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
    4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
    5th - Run the app and enjoy

    Finally , funny thing is I just bought the game XIII for my PS2 but just realized my memory card was stuffed up so I couldn't save. Hopefully this will work well.

    This well let me play original PS2 games on my PS3 though, right?

    it should. it just bites the compatibility is less than stellar. i mean, the psx one is near perfect, so i imagine with some tweaking, people should be able to boost this on up a little more.

    Yes, cool. But how will the games play.

    I already tried playing PS2 Original games using Cobra on Non BC Compatible PS3 and it sucks big time believe me. I can't see this method any better, but who am I too say.

    PS1 Original games play anyway on any PS3.

    yeah, this emulator is old and does not work well but it's a good progress still. more interested in PSP emulator working, that works better from Cobra.

    the real hope for PS2 emulation on PS3 is hacking the new emulator being used in the new PS2 PSN classics. Those are working great.

    Yeah, only original ones.

    Well I've tried playing playing 3 games and they all can't detect my PS3 controller even though it worked fine in factory mode.

    Its good but if you have to put it into Service Mode just to get PS2 games working I would be waiting for a better fix.

    You don't need FSM take Boot_PS2 and it will work. Controller only work if you connect it direct with USB cable.

    i have tray FFX FFX-2 and FFXII and don't work really....

    so maybe there is a way using the new PS2 Emu from 3.6+ and the then it works better.
