106w ago - Following up on their initial release and IrisManager application, this weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer DemonHades has made available a JFW DH 3.56 MA PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) Installation Tutorial.
To quote, roughly translated: Installation Tutorial for JFW DH 3.56 MA
This tutorial is designed so that the user makes a comfortable and easy installation "DH JFW 3.56 MA" without risk of incorrect installation either. Before starting the installation we will clear some things:
What is the DH JFW 356 MA?
It is the first CFW 3.56 for the system, thanks to DH 356 JFW MA, locked in 3.56 users who are unable to downgrade have a chance to scene, so if you'll need a flasher. For users who are at 3.55 or 3.41 will not need the flasher for installation.
How is unlike the rest of the current CFW?
3.56 The DH JFW is made by sceners MA Spanish and we thought both users who are locked up like that scene today have at 3.41/3.55.
The DH JFW 3.56 MA has features that no other CFW has, such as preloader, Thegra, etc...
It also has a number of tools and addons that are still developing, these are:
JMAB (XMB design and organization of the new categories JFW)
Detailed below and each one is to be used.
If I upgrade to 3.56 MA DH JFW get trapped forever?
No, you can do downgrade / update, thanks to MAD.
What is MAD?
A virtual flasher that does not require welding in 356MA.
What I can run the risk having it installed?
None if you follow exactly the installation.
Will support the DH JFW 3.56 MA?
If both errors and retrofit.
If I find errors in the DH JFW 3.56 MA, whom I must communicate in order to make the correction?
Mainly DemonHades.org must communicate in explaining what happened.
2. Check with the MD5 Software is correct when published in this tutorial.
3. Watch the PS3 version you have installed the JFW Before Dh 3.56 MA, must have 3.55 or 3.41.
4. Downloaded the update has to go in the following path of pendrive: PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP
5. Insert the stick into the PS3 XMB I install it from the PUP as if an ordinary question.
6. Once installed restart PS3 and go.
Important notice: The DH JFW 3.56 MA includes live via PKG service mode, you should not use it unless you know the subject and even fewer use the flashing Lv2Diag.self... will have a total brick.
Also if you mistakenly enter service mode, you can go put in the root of the pendrive Lv2Diag.self of 220kb on usb0 to exit the service mode you will find in the thread of DH 3.56 JFW MA.

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.

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.

This category will see that we can easily able to manage the game saves, pkgs, ftp, etc.

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.
