CFWLoad v1.0 PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader is Released


Sponsored Links
195w ago - Today stoker25 via PSX-Scene has released CFWLoad v1.0 with source code, which he states is essentially a clone of JaicraB's PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader with a few differences for people with USBs that have different numbers.

Download: CFWLoad v1.0 for PS3

For those interested in modifying the PlayStation 3 registry files, previously he released a PS3 Registry xRegistry.sys File Editor followed by PS3 Multi Tool v0.2.

To quote on his latest release:

It's a clone of JaicraB's USB FIRM LOADER, with a few differences for people like me with USBs that have different numbers.

Features:
• Choose what USB to use!
• Redirect dev_flash to usb
• Redirect app_home to usb
• Dump LV2 kernel and mount points
...along with all the source code that does it

NOTE: You need a payload with peek and poke syscalls (PL3 dev has this).

Usage:
• X - (Un)Patch /dev_flash as usb
• Square - (Un)Patch /app_home as usb
• Select - Dump lv2.bin & mounts.bin to usb
• Up/Down - Change USB
• Triangle - Exit

The dev_flash files have to be on the root of the USB drive to work, e.g. if E:/ is your drive, you should have E:/vsh, E:/vsh/modules, etc...

Make a PS3_GAME folder on your USB for the thing in the Game menu to work. App has some bugs, but it is my first PS3 program.

Thx:
JaicraB - original CFW loader
dwarfcrank - reversing the CFW loader

The cfwloader is a homebrew tool. Even if we managed to install it on 3.60+ we cannot run it, as it (among other things) requires peek/poke syscalls to be present. And this tool does not dump the ram.

thx for reply cfwprophet & Ps3hen

you mean i can't load lower firmware with this tool ! if we are in 3.60+ we can't load 3.55cfw from usb? if we dump dev_flash app_home LV2 kernel to load from usb ! one more thing someone say that we can dump whole ps3 RAM on 3.55 is it use in this tool.

sir can we load any firmware in ps3.. like ps3hen dump 4.00 and 4.11 .. or 3.55Well yes I can dump FWs like you said, but anyone can do that, with the already available tools.

miandad no offence to hen or his fw hacks but thoes are only xml hacks no reall sprx, self, or lv1, lv2 hacks. This means that even a usb firm loader can't give you a 4.0 or 4.11 cfw.
Like cfwprophet points out, I'm only editing files not signed/encrypted, which are only the .rco and .xml files. The self/sprx files in the new FWs use keys we do not have so we cannot decrypt them or encrypt them.

It is also for this reason that you can't use a FW loader to give you a 4.11 CFW. Using any of the new FW files without re-encrypting them for 3.55, will simply result in the PS3 crashing on boot. As the new FW files will not be decryptable by the relevant 3.55 CFW Ldr.self
