Sponsored Links
215w 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.

• 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).

• 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.

I'm confused. Can someone decrypt the first post in layman terms? What does this exactly do?

Yes, but it boots the update data from hdd0, and updates the flashes as needed, but if the flash is redirected to usb its updating the firmware currently on the usb and never touching the flash.

As soon as the ps3 restarts in update mode you can flip the power switch, when you turn the console back on after that it will reattempt the update. That gives us a chance to boot with a payload that allows the flash->usb redirection.
