PS3 Preloader Advance by JaicraB, Restore Dev_Flash via LV2Diag


Sponsored Links
139w ago - This holiday weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released PS3 Preloader Advance, a rewritten LV2Diag.self that allows restoring the Dev_Flash.bin file (to fix semi-bricked PS3 consoles) and has been tested on JFW DH CFW although it should work on all Custom Firmware he states.

To quote, roughly translated: Already available the tool to reset any "/ dev_flash". It is but a program that runs without external modules.

Why we find it being unable to load basic libraries housed in the "/ dev_flash" we must use direct syscalls to the kernel. The compilation is clean STUB external modules, hence it only takes a few KB ...

The function is to load the file "/ dev_usb000/flash1.bin" and write in RAW mode to the "/ dev_flash". But not before mounting the "/ dev_flash" Write mode.

It's simple but effective. There are dangers of bricks, but backup mistake or left unfinished for various reasons.

In principle works in all FIRMS, but mainly is designed to JFW-DH356MA by semibricks problems and instead of HDD when the system stored inside the "/ dev_flash".

But you have backups you can ask of anyone with the same firm or even removing it from the pup and mounting it on a FAT system. Its use is simple.

  • In Factory Mode to rename the "Preloader Advance.self" a "Lv2Diag.self" and copy it to USB.
  • Within the USB copy at the root of the flash backup named "flash0.bin"
  • Connect the USB into the port nearest the reader, and on the system. The LED blinks green. It means that restoring the flash.
  • When the process is shut down. Check the log it creates on the USB to be sure.
  • It only plays out of the factory mode with the "Lv2Diag.self" step2 flowing through the network.

PS3 Preloader Advance 2

Bring Preloader version 2 of the Advance.

Improvements:

  • Configuration file to select the actions.
  • Restore all flashes.
  • Make backups of all the flashes.
  • Optimization of the code.
  • Auto-Exit Service mode.

Operation:

  • Be in Service Mode.
  • Copy and advance.cfg Lv2Diag.self-in USB
  • Modify the file to taste advance.cfg
  • Insert the usb backups according to the advance.cfg
  • Switch with USB-introduced into the nearest port to the reader.

The Evidence:

CORE- While this well and allow access to the Service mode, this utility will recover all the flash. The change of HDD in a 3.56 version is not a problem on systems with NOR memories. No need to do an UPDATE THROUGH. Good luck!

From [Register or Login to view links], roughly translated:

Good friends demons, the wait has been tedious and frustrating, so jaicrab wants us this gift to the community to wish a Merry Christmas to all those you had a semibrick with the installation of the JMB or a bad installation in the flash.

Steps:

1. Prepare our dongle to put it in service mode (I used my amazebreak, but it any other apparatus to use the downgrader payload). Then enter the port and do the combo usb000 power and eject, will turn itself off the PS3.
2. Download the JFW-DH 3.56 MA 1.2.1 Service Pack
3. Download of demonisos.net and rename it to flash0.bin
4. Place in the root of the pendrive (flash0.bin), and also put in the root renamed the advance preloader Lv2Diag.self
5. Introduce the stick in the port usb000 (closest to the reader) and turn on the console.
6. The LED will blink green while working on the restoration, when finished will go out alone.
7. For get into the root end of the usb Lv2Diag.self used to exit the service mode (finalized).
8. Ya again have our PS3 alive with the JFW-DH 3.56 MA.

No more, now you can have it back running the PS3 and not afraid to mess up, this system is tested in fat60 (I have bricked mine) and I have it again making war, is valid for any model although format the hdd.

And without further, 1saludo departed JaiCraB MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the demons DemonHades and friends

Following up on the previous updates, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the Iris Manager PS3 game backup manager to version 1.49.1 followed by 1.49.2 and v1.49.3 with the changes detailed below.

To quote, roughly translated: Well, then here goes: I have included notes (many) so you have any idea what I've played and that: basically control power off by temperature (90 seconds above 79 degrees) and idle time (60 minutes without touching the pad and provided they are not doing file transfers that we can touch morality) is in routine pad.c reading pad

I think it basically means operation: for not being overloaded reading, I do that every 16 tics read the timer and temperature using syscall, do the necessary checks and if the old timer is not zero and go overtime, catapum Chimpun ( without a word))

I've grouped all that well is not lost [+ laughs]. And now the explanation for users:

  • Now to have an hour of downtime in Iris console off
  • As I said, in Iris temperature alarm: 90 seconds without the temperature drops below 80 C in either CPU or RSX and the console is turned off.
  • The addition of the callback Disc allows're not constantly checking whether there is a disc in and it allows the reader to rest.
  • Added support for redirection libfs.sprx: copy by ftp or via usb (usb :/ gets into iris) libfs_patched.sprx, which is generated by patch_libfs.bat (do not forget to put keys in the data folder!) And games like COD4: MW to operate from internal BD-Emu mount
  • In Tools (press START) the "Copy from / dev_usb / Iris to Iris folder" will make life easier to move things to the installation directory of Iris Manager. For example, if you put "covers" of Multiman within the USB folder, you copy your own content or libfs_parched.sprx we talked about. The option uses asynchronous copying to gain speed.

IMPORTANT: This new option may damage the Iris Manager installation if not used with head, for logical reasons.

NOTE: Obviously, there is no option to delete anything that is copied, except by FTP or pulling or uninstalling other programs (which will render the games settings, etc.) Enjoy it!

v1.49.1 Changelog (translation by aldostools):

  • After one hour of inactivity in Iris the console is turned off
  • Temperature alarm in Iris: if temperature remains above 80 C for 90 seconds in either CPU or RSX, the console is turned off.
  • Added support for redirection of libfs.sprx: copy by ftp or via usb (to usb:/iris) the libfs_patched.sprx generated using patch_libfs.bat (don't forget to put the keys file in the data folder!) and games like COD4: MW will play from internal HDD with the BD-Emu mounted.
  • Added a callback for Disc check, that prevents constant polling if the disc is inserted or not, giving a rest to the BR drive reader.
  • In Tools (press START) the option "Copy from / dev_usb / Iris to Iris folder" will make life easier letting to move things to the installation directory of Iris Manager. For example, if you put "covers" of multiMAN or the libfs_parched.sprx we talked about within the USB folder, Iris will copy the content its folder. The option uses asynchronous copying to gain speed.

IMPORTANT: This new option may damage the Iris Manager installation if not used with head, for logical reasons.

v1.49.2 Chagelog (translation by aldostools):

  • Fixed a bug mounting the BD-Emu when certain disk changes occur (for example, inserting certain PSX games, eject then put a BR disc).
  • Removed patched libfs load when BD-Emu is used from external disc (COD black screen 4: MW similar to that which occurred from internal)
  • Added warning messages in shutdown functions (in one case can be cancelled, in the other is non-cancelable for obvious reasons: if there is overheating, we must be forced to turn off the PS3)

v1.49.3 Changelog (via elotrolado.net/hilo_3-55-4-30-iris-manager-v1-38_1842936_s340#p1731400119):

  • If you load a game for PS3 (not PSN, a disc game), some data are stored in a file (lastgame). Holding down L1 on startup, when Iris Manager is loading again, it will load automatically the last game, unless their presence is not detected or error.
  • If in the root directory of the game (where usually the PS3_DISC_SFB is found), you put a file name containing ps2disc.txt with the destination path (eg. /dev_usb000/dataps2 or /dev_hdd/GAME/dataps2), that folder is mounted as /dev_ps2disc.

This feature can be useful for games like Sing Star, that can read tracks from PS2 discs.

Glad to see an update from these guys. Been using Iris Manager for a while now. Not too shabby How's MultiMan different? Sorry for asking, I'm new to all of this

Been using Game Backup System to backup my games, proven to be quite a killer combination with Iris Manager

MultiMan works perfectly on all of Rebug's CFWs. I don't know how you guys are having perfomance issues with it, the latest upgrades were there to improve that, it's faster than ever.
