To quote, roughly translated: Hi all, as many know, when it published the JFW 3.56 MA-DH commented on the possibility of creating a virtual flasher to downgrade to 3.55 or less, well today is a fact that possibility so from now no one is "prisoner of MA", however it is a dangerous process, it is recommended to keep things clear and know what we are doing responsible are misuse said this. Let's begin:

The first is dump the data vital to our PS3, Aegean and we will use a configuration file download from the link below the pre3 (jaicrab.blogspot.com.es) and put in the root of the pen Archivo advanced.cfg, then rename the Lv2Diag.self to egea.self, create the following directory PS3/UPGRADE/egea.self.

Connecting to the USB port on the right and hope while reading the data from our ps3 "the process are between 3/5 minutes depending on the pen", when finished we will create the Backuprflash.bin. There are flash drives that are not compatible with egea, if we see that the ps3 starts normally change pendrive...

Good, the configuration file that will do is dump the rflash and flash1, flash2, flash3 once the reading process will turn off the ps3 and begins one of the most dangerous steps, we now have to patch the rflash with 3.55 core_os not chek, patch is recommended to follow the tutorials to dowgrades with physical flasher, but if you look confused or not know how. To be continued...

Thanks to:

JaiCraB, to create preloader 3 and include the MAD.
Varicela test this tool and give me a PS3 and which I used for this tool and other future purposes.
Kike for sacrificing your PS3.

PS3 Preloader Advance 3 by JaicraB

I decided to make improvements to the previous Advance Preloader 2. A major improvement is the virtual controller (MAD). Can directly manipulate the NOR or NAND memories of our consoles without having a physical developer. This leads to a high risk of running out of console.

A bad patch and you would be required to settle a physical developer. It has been tested successfully in several models. This does not mean that there is any model that fails. I hope you will heap up head. I am not responsible for any damage. Another use is to make copies of data unique to each console.

This tool has been developed for systems and lower JFW 3.55 3.56 MA. It requires no external libraries. It works even without the dev_flash in the system. It can be launched as Lv2Diag.self, as in JFW EGEA MA SELF 3.56 or releasing from any FileManager that supports it. May soon be published as PKG.

1. Copy of rflash:

For systems with NOR (16MB) and NAND (256MB) (no bootloader). Available two ways to copy. The first 16MB, 256MB or whole (for NAND) The process takes 50 sec (16MB NOR), 15 sec (16MB NAND), 1 min (256MB NAND). In rflash entire system is stored on the PS3. There we find:

  • Asecure_loader
  • EEID
  • CISD
  • CCSD
  • Trvk_prg
  • Trvk_pkg
  • Ros (CoreOS)
  • Cvtrm
  • Bootloader (NOR models only)

It will create a file called "Backuprflash.bin" in the USB000.

2. Restoring the rflash (MAD):

This step is dangerous, a bad change in the original can cause rflash BRICK. A bad usage can only be repaired only with physical developer. Also available in two modes (16MB, 256MB). Designed primarily for downgrading systems with "JFW MA" and for systems with problems downgrader. Has option to restore only different sectors. (Experimental). The process can take NOR, auque See not work on USB not quench. The "rflash" must be copied to the USB as "rflash.bin" But this safe to do so ... Do not!

3. Copy and Restore "/ dev_flashX"

To safely handle the file system used in GameOS. It will create a file called "Backupflash1.bin", "Backupflash2.bin", "Backupflash3.bin" USB000 depending on the number of dev_flash chosen. You can mount that image in your PC so you can change and then restore it. It is also useful when the system downgrade option 2 "Restoring rflash" and change your firmware with the file system. To restore is to copy the image of the "dev_flash" USB000 named the "flashX.bin".

4. Dump LV2, LV1

It is an extra unimportant. You just have to be installed in the system SC 6, 7, 11 for the process. The file created will be named on USB000 "DumpLv2.bin", "DumpLv1.bin".

5. Service Mode

We can enter / exit the service mode. To enter service mode from the pre3 need patched systems with LV1.

6. Out mode

When you finish the processes indicated in advance.cfg can do is shut down or reboot the system.

Configuration file

The tool will locate the file "advance.cfg" in "/ dev_usb000/advance.cfg" (Port closer to the reader) You can do all the actions triggered sequentially. That is, you can program the rflash and dev_flash at a time, out of service mode and reboot. In the configuration file is detailed the activation of each action. Flashing green LED means you are working.

Where it is that Red is complete. Writing in NOR models will seem to be blocked. But the led usb flash every 20 seconds so slightly. Do not put out until you do one or put the red LED.

JFW 3.56 downgrade MA:

The process will be detailed demonhades.org community.

Easy change version:

With well patched the rflash (CoreOS not check) with their respective "dev_flashX" can be changed in a matter of 4 minutes (NAND) of any firmware using this tool. Will address the issue soon on demonhades.org

Thanks to:

shiny bricks?... really ? why would they purposely brick a console? i understand to weed out traitors, but why not let the beta be optional. another way of owning us like sony does.

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.

Well to jailbreak you need at least 3.41 FW and a USB Dongle, from there the skies the limit (upgrade-downgrade, CFW).

I hope it helps.

People are wondering if their PS1 Eboots they made for PSP will work on CFW.
