Questions and Answers JFW 3.41 / 3.56 MA DH
Hello Demons, after reading in different parts of the network see that there is still much confusion about JFW DH 3.41 and JFW DH 3.56 and MA.
That is why I decided to create the official thread to go answer the most discussed in the network.
DH JFW 3.41
Who can use it?
All users can downgrade via QA flags / are in a less than 3.41 or have a flasher to downgrade.
That is the basis for downgrade?
The base is the lowest firmware that supports our PS3, and it left the factory.
Why a 3.41?
Why is it that has fewer restrictions and is harder to detect Sony because Sony can not go back in time to implement security.
I'm on a cfw I happen to 3.55 and 3.41 DH JFW, I can?
Yes, as long as your base is less than 3.41, if not exceeding the 350 read at least part of the 356MA.
I have games on the internal and external HDD, I have to convert for them?
No, you can always use the old backups via manager or secondary methods (PKG, plug & play) without patching or search for patches.
That is why the games do not need to be patched 3.55 / 3.56?
The DH-JFW has an internal system that detects when files larger than 3.41, makes use of one of their plugins to run.
The means of installing the DH JFW is different from other customs?
No, is the same as that used for the rest (recovery mode)
To me worth the Manager the grid?
Among other things to Enable / Disable plugins or patches applied dynamic.
What is a plugin?
It's an application that runs in the background and allows us to expand the capabilities of Sony's firmware.
And the dynamic patches?
As the name implies, are patches that apply to modules self / sprx either system or external fw itself to directly modify files.\
New games require moddchip?
No, because it makes use of an exploit
But and the keys?
Do not use for anything.
The new original games we will use?
Initially, no, only the backs of demonisos.. and to be prepared for the JFW DH.
What is demonisos?
A place to store your original backups like a storage facility in question, if you do not have them and proof that you have may not be published (who's up)
If I have a 36x or 37x the original game, I get my backup?
You will have to download the patch demonisos, as without the patch will not be able demonisos.
If there DLC game patches, unable to let us play?
He can also download the demonisos, ready for use.
Demonisos anyone can access?
Only those who use its service to upload your original reespaldos.
So if I upload a copy of my original demonisos not have access to?
No, demonisos uses a legal system to store.. and if you do not have the original that is uploaded, you can not access the site.
The plugins are downloaded from where?
From the OpenPStore, since it is part of the service packs.
For that we have no Internet, no way to download and install plugins or services?
Yes, via web, downloading the pkg and then install it as a viewer from normal pkg.
For that only show videos of the xmb, not the other features?
In the team are several people, and each will take care of a task, what is shown is part of the tasks that I perform (DemonHades) and most colleagues (Makykiki, Tito1, PSjuan), the remaining partners do not may show nothing if not already completed.
It will make a port to 3.55 of JFW DH?
No, we do not want rivalry with the other customs of that version.
I've seen other cfw can copy the game saves in the JFW DH there any way?
The dh-JFW supports a new application called UsaveME, for the management of saves.
But... there are some protected right?
UsaveME, I prepared to use although you can give come from another ps3 saves.
The hard drive must be fat32?
If, as the data system that format natively used ps3 for external media.
And it could not use NTFS or similar for games that require more size?
Ideally, the same format used internally but externally (UFS) but without the layer of encryption to be connected externally.
UFS would be possible externally?
With a plugin or patch may.
Cobra does not stop to make updates, they will come in the JFW DH?
No, JFW has nothing to do with the plugins are different things.. though is where do JFW.
Then, we can not carry things cobra?
Yes, but with plugins Thegra.
We will have access to psn?
Not in the output, even if they can exploit to study the level of impact has the global JFW.. and if we see is consistent with our purpose might be.
Worth the oldest published online themes for xmb?
No, because his organization would be altered.
You lose games purchased, or may renew the licenses?
Initially if you do not have access to the psn, you can... obviously not all be studied later elapses seeing all.
Sony will be able to plug the exploit?
Not if no details are given, or where, when, why.
The DH will have JFW Internet browser?
The same that is used natively at the moment.
In DH JFW can make use of media servers (PS3 media server)?
Yes, no problem.
Being in 3.41 official JFW passing DH, retain the trophies?
Yes, no problems
This cfw will be playable in 3D?
Games if no time movies (with a plugin if possible) or native tv 3d
DH JFW 3.56 MA
Who can use it?
All users that are on a firmware less than 356 or have a flasher to patch the PUP (it will be tutorial).
Because a 3.56 and not a 3.55?
Really 3.56 MA suddenly emerged to perform tests of the members of the team, but our intention was only 3.41, yet we know people who discovered that their models could not go down beyond the base 3.56.
So if I'm in 350 of base do you recommend?
It depends on what you want, the 3.56 MA is intended for people with base 356, but if you're at 3.50 so far suggest any custom 3.55, as 3.56 MA not have even the peek / poke many homebrew make use of it.
Worth old games I have on the hdd?
Initially yes, but with pkgs... as managers make use of the peek / poke.
And be compatible with the new games?
If, as the 3.41.
For they say that if you upgrade to 3.56 got stuck?
Because the 356 from Sony introduced a updater2 which is responsible for not recognizing updater1 (1xx to 3.55), so to get out of there you need a flasher.
It says that you need a flasher, worth a PS3 key me or something?
A flasher is not a USB, a flash is to be welded modchip to make a copy of the fw installed on the NAND / NOR.
I'm in 3.56 OFWs, I can do with a usb downgrader?
No, only with a flasher and welding.
You can use the OpenPStore?
If, as it is compatible.
Thegra manager can use?

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.

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:
