PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher Released!

Sponsored Links
278w ago - Just over a month ago Ifcaro released PS3 USBLD Loader v0.3 RC1 & ModHook Versions, which attempted to increase PS2 game compatibility and added a language/driver file folder. For those unaware, PS3 USBLD Loader allows you to run PS2 image back-ups on a PS3 via USB.

This weekend he has made available both the PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and a Patcher Utility, as follows:

To quote, roughly translated: The source code of the "Advance USB Loader for PS3" licensed GPLv2. The Web site of the project is: [Register or Login to view links] I hope that it involved more people and more can be improved.


To compile the USB Advance Loader you need to make some previous actions.

First you will need a copy of USB ADVANCE unpacked completely (3MB)

To "enable" loader's patches is necessary to edit the original USB ADVANCE's elf.

To do this, replace in the offset 0x000016e8: 8a6e 040c to a600 200c

Now USB Advance will give the step to Loader to add new features.

Finally copy the USB ADVANCE elf renamed to USBADVN_ok.ELF to the emb folder

NOTE: In the source code appears the name of some modules that I have extracted from the USB ADVANCE elf. These modules gave them the name that occurred to me at that time.

These modules are:

• PARCHE_EE: It is not a module but it is a piece of code for EE is loaded just before
to launch the game.
• MSD.IRX: (MASS-DRIVER) This is the module responsible for the manege USB disk filesystem.
• RAMDISK.IRX: Its a RAM DISK for IOP updating with USB ADVANCE modules.
•CDVDMAN.IRX: It is a replacement driver CDVDMAN to read from USB.
