Mount Alejandro: PS3 Homebrew - Write to Dev Flash


Sponsored Links
198w ago - PS3 Developers JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma have brought another way to enable writing to the PS3's /dev_flash partition by mirroring it to /dev_Alejandro.

This follows in line with nr4u's Flash Loader, which itself was a successor of JaicraB's USB Custom Firmware Loader v0.3 - but in a more compact, stripped down version.

Download: Mount Alejandro

To quote (via Spanish to English translation):

FLASH Write Enable:
------------------------

This application allows the mounting of the unit / dev_Alejandro. This unit is a mirror of the unit / dev_flash, with this active alike.

Unit / dev_flash no writeable useful to read as the old way, but the new SI is writable.

This is why we are not responsible for any misuse that may be made this application, the method used, etc. As end users ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE WILL you do ON YOUR MACHINE!

Taken into account before trying to manipulate the firmware, XML files, etc.

Happy Xmax!

P.S Why the name of Alexander? Who knows, maybe it has something to do with any of us ...

i'm not brave enough to test this, but i'm sure there is someone out there with 2-3 ps3's that wouldn't mind testing this.

Sounds great. But i don't know if we should go this step. As long ACID is not to 100% a full puplic release (means no WIP) i won't release and teach to write the files to con.

I for myself will be glade if we can use a payload for that stuff. On that way we also can write files to hdd and redirect them via payload to direct boot into cfw without the risc that some one will ever brick his console.

But if someone is willing to test and report it would be great. The team is full with other work like customize the xmb, add apps to ACID that will be fixed into cfw, OtherOS and a few secred things.

But plz every one who will test be sure to be able to unbrick your console !!

This is good news indeed! I hope this will lead to a permanent jailbreak.
