216w 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: http://code.google.com/p/usbld/ I hope that it involved more people and more can be improved.
From the ReadMe file: INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPILING USB ADVANCE LOADER
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.
• USBLOADER.IRX: IOP part of USB ADVANCE.

The first post is copied from the Site News so that wouldn't be a good solution unfortunately... but those actually reading the thread should be able to find them with no effort if they can read.
The common sense rule on any Forum is to search before posting... a simple search would have showed these people the older threads so that I wouldn't have to spend my time re-linking them each time a new USBLD Loader thread hits our Site News.
Finally, this thread's title alone is "PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher Released" which designates the topic of this thread as such. Their posts are not on the source code nor the patcher, so they are considered off-topic on that basis alone.
