CFWLoad v1.0 PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader is Released


180w 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

Now we just need a exploit to remap flash to usb when the ps3 restarts in update mode.

From what I understand, when you install an update, it actually restarts and boots the update version of the firmware in the same way that USB loader lets us boot firmware off a USB drive.

So the problem then is that if you want to install 3.50, it will boot the 3.50 image meaning that we would have to have a 3.50 exploit first in order to remap flash to USB.

I don't know that's the case with absolute certainty, but I believe it to be true.

nice job works fine

cfwprophet i have first the same issus like you but after i have first patch to usb and after this i have repath an make a boot up of my fat PS i have startet once an it work now perfectly.

now i have just an idea. i hope there is a way, we know the PS extract the content of an update to hdd0/1 i dont know how but i have read it that there is an partition for it.

after we can patch redirection of system folder so we can now tray to redirect hdd0 and hdd1 to a usb device and make an update the content will be extract to them after a disconnect of de usb drive we cann make a reboot and have the extractet files on the usb its just an idea.

its a stupid idea

meh tVersity is a pain. PS3 Media server is much better. It will play and convert on the fly, as well as copy straight to the hdd to play a vid without having to stream it.

mkv support would rule.

Eh - I want it to play my Betamax video tapes and 8-track audio ones ...

Plus some sort of media player like vlc or xbmc.
It's called... TVersity. Anyone have this working?

TVersity doesn't play well with dual audio though. Just use mkv2vob for D.A.
