Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
4. It will run.

Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

A possible compatibility lists:

PS2 Compat. flag

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

Hy,

which version of multiman you have installed? you need to install Multiman 4.60 or the new Irisman.

Or uninstall your installed version and install a new clean Version of Multiman or Irisman.

Hope can help.

Hi,

You need the orginal Eboot.bin from the Games. The most Games you can Downloaded is patched for lower Firmware, in example for 3.55!!

Download the Orginal Eboot (.PKG or .BIN) for your Games and install it or send it with FTP Program to your PS3.

This must be fixed your problems.

Hope can help.

Hi All,


I just updated my ps3 slim cech-3012A to the latest sony official firmware 4.65 and updated my ODE firmware to v.2.2_FIXED. My ODE Board version is 05.10B / M2S010 so I used v5p10B10.spi for update.

My problem are the games is not loading with error 80010017. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
