52w ago - This weekend the Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have announced that JBM 3.55 PS3 CFW is now in development, which will offer the best of JFW DH 3.56 MA in a new Custom Firmware.
To quote, roughly translated: Making decisions for the future of JFW-DH
Hello friends first of all like demons to thank you for trusting in JFW356MA as custom of your PS3, as you well know the PS3 scene is going through difficult times because of the dominance of DRM dongles, these dongles are set to 355, for structure and kernel.
As you know many of you in MA you have had problems when running certain applications mainly due to this reason which we have all we can to resolve, but we are aware that this balance in trying to adapt all our MA giving us more work to realization of new and abundant applications for JFW.
We have been thinking about these obstacles in which we double slaughter, we play in making new things and other things that appear in portage other devs submitting to more pressure and therefore more cramped.
As happened a few days with the PSN and spoof, had it not been for that we have been watching Black ubiesemos us as if other custom could, and I as a responsible community dh I can not want it to happen.
Yesterday was published the USERCHEAT, which only works on FW 355 canceled leaving us because we have to be 2 things again, and which work for portearlo takes time and patience ... and that is not profitable.
PUP reinstall either, nor recasar readers etc... making a calculation are more impediments to improvements in the 356.
And I freaking have to be me who has to say this, but in statistical framework and the 356 gives us more problems when it comes to offer diversity in short-term progress.
So the thing is so, it will create the JBM355 with all the best with the 356MA, thegrid, preloader, service packs, plugins, etc. and so and you will not be canceled and which will stay at ease and can focus solely on the accomplishment of tasks for JFW and no more ports.
If the TB, COBRA or other drops will be the first to have the 355 and that does not forgive me dejandos without the possibility of having the same or more.
So the thing is so, we will make a collective downgrade JBM355 cease to provide support to 356MA, waiting for so more people can know our fantastic custom and is much easier to return to another 355 by a pup.
I know this is not going to like some people, but if you read carefully will know the reason for this decision, because it is better to change the direction that never crash and demons
But I want to thank everyone who every day have been helping and giving their PS3, as kike, kiki, maki, Cheko, alvaro and of course the devs that created without rokiski MA, JaiCraB, blipi, and I blackdeath what little they could do but at heart would not be possible to have everything we have in MA, so I want to thank you.
1saludo and look forward to all your support for me and the team that formed the JFW we will continue to bring you many new things cane but this time in the JBM355
Update: Checko, do not be HURRY TO DOWNGRADE BECAUSE THE BEST WE WOULD WAIT FOR THE FIRST VERSION OF JBM 3.55
The time will put everyone on your site ... and while attentive to the site.

wow ps2 games and PSN access this sound like the best thing in a long time happening to my PS3, I hope PSN solution works for long but guess that would be stupid to wish for any way PS2 games running will be fun.
This upcoming CFW is the most exciting news in a long time. The license generator for PSN games especially caught my attention, one of my PSN games hasn't been functional since 3.41, so perhaps this could take care of it. As for activating the 8th SPU, too bad it won't do any good for games considering they're programmed to use a maximum of 6 so I suppose it'd only be good for homebrew. Would it be possible to disable the hypervisor security that runs on 1 of the SPUs? Having all 8 SPUs available for the lulz would be nice.
New categories such as Multimedia, PS3 Loader, Thegra, Homebrew, Emulators, manager set aside the typical native application. Photos, Music, Videos, TV, disappear to make way for Multimedia.
This new category gives rise to a union of native options like photo, music and video. This new category will appear the famous player Showtime, which already includes the possibility of a single application in many more options than what they offered us the categories natively native officers.
Reproduction native (the PS3 system) MUSIC, PHOTOS and VIDEO, DVD, BD, photo gallery and soon Cdaudio the VidZone, memories and play qriocity
Listen to music

This new category was born to take charge from now manage the contents of the old Sony consoles, this means that both PS1/PS2/Minis Games and the saves these become part of this new category, freeing imnecesarios to GAME icon.
It is also where you store the backups RetroLoader (aka modified cobrausb backup manager) responsible for managing the games PS1, PS2 and PS3
Thegra - the new star category and plugins
This new category includes the plugins manager, service packs. Thegra is the name of the loader plugins, these plugins will give the console first choices, which the imagination of every developer could unleash the potential of this charger.

Activation of the 8th SPU
This new category will be responsible for having ordered all the old console emulators.
This new category includes all homebrew created to date, for it will have access to from where you can download OpenPStore the last hombrews etc. to be placed automatically at their place of origin and not as the previous game.
This category will see that we can easily able to manage the game saves, pkgs, ftp, etc.
Cobra JFW Payload Plugin
DH and has advanced the issue.
New Item Linux
The JFW DH was gonna be no less, that includes 2 options to use Linux back in the console, in this regard are:
JFW Preloader - The recovery of DH includes a preloader that is responsible for:
Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
Flashing copies from an external drive (USB).
Update the Preloader
Home of the flash write access (not necessarily more alejandro or substitutes)
The advantages are not required reinstalling all the PUP (from hardware checks) do not need to do: composite or go through the recovery.
Services include basic Packs to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.
Compatibility with Games and Applications
Using a DH-JFW 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
The DH-JFW is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55
DH-JFW runs natively games until 3.56 (original disks) without having to upgrade.
PSN games that require NPDRM 356, are also supported without upgrading (the current CFW not give this support)
No need for a valid signature on the executable (including loaders and other files)
Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55
Support for peripherals is not licensed by sony in that medium 355 is eliminated leaving them unused
The only custom firmware can take the keys with a dual NAND 3.6x (programmer) such as PNM and that allows the custom appldr redirect to another area of the ram and so does not remove the old

This tutorial will teach you to how to know the base firmware of your PS3 with a few steps and images.
The things you need are:
MinVerChk (by Ifcaro / tito1)
1 - Copy MinVerChk to a USB Drive, like it is a System Software Update.
2 - Plug the USB Drive into the PS3.
3 - Install the update from XMB. The update will fail and display the Firmware Base.
Finally, below is a list of PS3 models (for fat and slim) and their base firmware courtesy of tito1:
