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:

  • Image-intall
  • Image-Boot

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.

Service Packs

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
  • Theme DHorg exclusive community that will change randomly each time the console or ignite the user cambieis
  • More surprises

Because they don't want it shared or leaked in any shape, form or fashion until it is perfect.

Yea, that does seem a ways off if the JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware Beta testing is 2 weeks... I guess time will tell for sure though.

Also below is some more details from blipi who is one of the developers working on OpenPStore: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/353-JFW-?p=3377#post3377

Hey people. I've just heard you posted this here, and I just said to myself, let's post too. Atm I'm working on OpenPStore, which is part of the JFW. I've been working on it for many many hours, as all devs which are working on JFW, and it is just disgusting to read people saying JFW is a fake.

I've seen pics of JFW running, not all of its features though, so it's not fake. There is a whole team working hard every day to bring this to you, and I've actually talked to all of them and I do know their work is real. Just for you to know, now it is 2 am where I live, I've been working till now just to have it all ready for the beta test and not to delay it anymore.

We want to verify everything is working without any problems before releasing it, to avoid things such as bricks or weird bugs. That's why the beta and further release will take so long. So far it is all progressing fine, and I do have proofs of, at least, my work.

Here I bring you 2 proofs of how hard we are working (OpenPStore).

1- We had a problem with a pre-made library to read .xml files (mxml), which was solved by manually coding a new .xml parser.

xml_parser.h : [Register or Login to view links]

[Register or Login to view code]

xml_parser.c : [Register or Login to view links]

[Register or Login to view code]

(Don't expect to find any OpenPStore here, as it is only a .xml parser)

2- Final GUI design of OpenPStore (Not a pic of a ps3, but from a PC. Though PS3 is exactly the same):
It will come in multiple colors, with an autochanger (to random color) feature.

s3nint3!If you want to I can keep you updated. JFW is real, and we are putting all our effort into it. Do not trust any fake release/leak! I don't know if the brick thing is true, but having seen all the work which has been done here, I would just trust it and not mess around.

Nobody is going to brick nobody's console unless someone leaks the JFW. And, even if it is leaked, if you don't use the leaked beta, you dont' have to worry about anything. And ofcourse, the final release won't have this anti-leak feature.

I also have to say thanks to everyone of you who do trust in us and give us support, as support and opinions is our only pay back for the work


PS: If it was for me, I would translate JFW and it's homebrew to English and more languages, but as I am not the only one who works in this project, I don't know when English support will come or whether it will come or not. Sorry.

PS2: For those claiming evidence... Beta will be here soon, just wait. You cant trust us or not. I know what I'm doing, and I do know that it is real. I don't even have a ps3 to test OpenPStore too, and I have to keep asking for testers. More than 5 people have already tried OpenPStore, and every one of them could tell you that it is real.

not long till it gets leaked.

"The estimated date for the publication of the JFW-DH is October 1, 2011"

We're probably gonna have 3.80 firmware by then. and 3.60 custom firmware should defo be out by then.
