161w 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.
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.
