Sponsored Links
285w 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.

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.

This is an installable PS2Dev environment for Win32. It contains compiler tools for EE, IOP and DVP built on the GCC v3.2.2 toolchain and patches, (no source code included). It also contains ps2sdk with libs and samples precompiled, (source code included).

When installing, DO NOT install to a directory path that contains spaces!

What do I use to put it all together?
It says something about compiling it but I cant find what to compile it with?

I've edited the file, packed it and it works but cant see the USB HDD so I guess thats not suppose to be ran on the PS3 yet. How can I get it to work?

I use to hack on the PS2 but I dont have access to those files anymore and that was years ago so none of them would probably work in this Windows anyway.
