77w 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.

MxxxS, My great teacher
Lara, to change and let me sleep at night tinkering...
Demonhades by bud
And the community of demons.
Happy Holidays to all.
PS3 Preloader Advance 2
Bring Preloader version 2 of the Advance.
Configuration file to select the actions.
Restore all flashes.
Make backups of all the flashes.
Optimization of the code.
Auto-Exit Service mode.
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.
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!
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.
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

Except for DEX stuff, this is the ongoing Iris Manager thread we use... however, in an upcoming release I will start a new dedicated thread for it per your suggestion. It appears they are kicking Iris Manager development into high gear lately so it probably won't be too long.
i totally agree deank put so much uneeded crap into mm it slowed it down i haven't updated since 14.04 myself it is slow and only get slower folks iris is the new manager go Estwald, i consider both friends and talented but i got to give this one to iris you cant even hook up 2 usb on mm iris you can
Following up on the previous revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the Iris Manager PS3 game backup manager to version 1.45 followed by v1.46, v1.46.2 and v1.46.3 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: Well, Version 1.45 at this rate, we will update the rhythm of Multiman [+ laughs]. No, really: unless it is something of God, I have no intention to update more
In firmware version 3.41 is added: all works, as I have above and arranged the 3.55, which brought us to head for a stupid mistake [+ laughs], but also had a problem with one of the "pokes" I had to solve. And those of us in 4.30, what?.
Then I thought about the whiners: D_Skywalk is who has control of the versions after all and I have no guilt if you do not like the "flicker" that put the icon or the colors I choose [qmparto]. So the best we can do is "fool" and minimally modify the GUI to accomplish the following:
Now there are 8 colors to choose, the first four, as always, with the fading light of the selected icon appears D_Skywalk likes, but others we mola Unless, that is "not seen" so fast.
The next four activate the "flicker" that got me, you fat and shrinks the icon. The first is the "Beautiful Blue" that some claims in a while [qmparto] [plasma], the second is the same as the default (gray-beige) and the third a blue-violet and the fourth new rosita for girls D_Skywalk including [haha].
The reason for two-color copy of the original, is that I know: some will want to use those colors but with the "blink" again (or worse: want the new colors but how D_Skywalk) [Toctoc]. So this time we win and I think we keep D_Skywalk happy to, because the changes I had to do to all that are minimal and respect both.
By the way, Mr. D_Skywalk: this time if I left a brief note. Some changes you may seem trivial, but I assure you that in the absence of 3.55 parenthesis in a function petaba poke me the entire application. There are things that are done in a certain way, that's how it seems to work and not on a whim. Take this into consideration [+ laughs]
Support for firmware 3.41, 3.55 fixed, 21.4 adds DEX
Fixes installer PKG
Added new background colors with automatic selection of "flicker" or not. These changes are minor and I hope that you accept as is. Basically, if you use the first four colors is selected icon as you let him, but if you select the 4 new (2 are the same as those you use your) changes to flashing mode so clever
Salgo minor bug or market, this is the last change I have thought to do that is not related with the ISOS.
Added the patch for 4.30 Rebug LV1 CEX to prevent the "panic shutdown" bug from occurring
Improved recognition of PSX discs
PSX / PS1 disc games bug fix
Rough translation (via elotrolado.net/hilo_3-55-4-30-iris-manager-v1-38_1842936_s280#p1731280734): Good Estwald, Since I'm "tester" because I'm indicating hehe . Following the same tests as I said in another post, it seems that still does not work and the original directly, or the backup (unless another hard target if recognized earlier and then force the restart of play) [buuuaaaa].
Well, as always follow your progress and encouragement. Regards and happy hehe kings. I just uploaded a new version that fixes that. The modification basically consists of adding this, for which you are interested.
if(find_device==11) sprintf(filename, "/dev_bdvd");
else if(find_device==0) sprintf(filename, "/dev_hdd0");
else sprintf(filename, "/dev_usb00%c", 47+find_device);
