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.
Checko, to try all options.

Sorry for my bad English

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:

Chickenpox test this tool and give me a PS3 and which I used for this purpose and other future purposes.
Kike for sacrificing your PS3.

Some people use software to convert psx games into eboots for the psp. Would there be anyway to convert those into being compatible with the PS3?

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.

  • Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
  • Flashing copies from an external drive (USB).

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
