To quote from his site (linked above), roughly translated:

"This program allows to simulate the dev_flash from USB. Allowing a Custom Firmware. We may modify the files of our new dev_flash (USB) as we please, without running the risk of throwing away the PS3.

It is a beta version, probably find bugs. I will continue working on it when time permits me. Remember that suffers no risk to the console. All that is changed the new dev_flash'll be doing really USB.

Requirements:

• Syscall PEEK and POKE.

Installation:

1. Copy the "FTP server" the entire contents of the / dev_flash the USB (the root).
2. Copy the JaiC_USB_FIRM_LOADER.pkg also the root of the USB.
3. Install the package.

Use:

1. Insert the USB into the PS3.
2. Run USB LOADER FIRM. After a few seconds will return to the XMB. The new firmare is loaded.

You will see that whatever you do the USB will be launched. Ideal for amending RCO, exchange modules, as you imagine.

IMPORTANT!

Do not update while in Live Firmware Mode. It will reboot, setting the original dev_flash back, and then it will update! Do not update from USB FIRMWARE LOADER!"

I had a lot of trouble getting cfl to load the contents of my dev_flash on my usb flash drive.So i started changing ps3 settings from XMB then copy the contents of my dev_flash with the changes to the settings. I finally got cfl to load firmware from usb when I changed my theme settings. Apparently cfl didn't like the dynamic theme i had set. Instead i set my theme to original and cfl loads the firmware everytime! I ftp into ps3 to confirm and sure enough theres a dev_flash0 folder. If you have a dynamic theme set try changing it to original it worked for me.

P.S. After the recent events in the PS3 scene I just had to join this forum and take part in the PS3 scene! I'm a noob here but i want to try and contribute what i can to the progress of the PSJB! sry for long 1st post.

What happens if you put the other PS3's hdd in a USB case, then run FTP? Will it interpret the CELL_FS?


Someone else tried that in another thread. The result was that the HDD wasn't mounted at all. I think we'd need a homebrew app that instructs the PS3 to mount the drive via USB using CELL_FS.
