To quote: My PSGroove fork is up! Functions are relocatable and it includes the USB stick apploader payload.
This fork comes with multiple payloads, which you can enable by editing port1_config_descriptor.S. All payloads have been rearranged so that they do not use hardcoded addresses anymore; you can rewrite and resize functions without worrying about offsetting others.
### Default Payload
The default payload performs the basic PSGroove exploit; it allows you to install and run unsigned packages.
### Apploader Payload
This payload makes use of the /app_home/PS3_GAME menu item. You may place an application on a USB drive under the PS3_GAME folder to run it without installing a package.
Note that simply extracting a .pkg onto the USB drive is not quite enough for a program to run. EBOOT.BIN must be slightly modified to boot properly.

i asked him real quick about it, and he said he stripped out about 100lines of code....
if your going to play around with the port1_config_descriptor, forget about using it in descriptor.h, he is calling for it in port1_config_descriptor.h in more then one location. just use that file to reflect what you want to do.
again, make -f Makefile.payload is the command to get the .h file.
i took the liberty of copying your payload from descriptor.h and put it into the port1_config_descriptor.h and compiled and the payload is no longer successful. the ps3 boots, but it does not boot into debug (no install package,etc).
descriptor.h was edited again to reflect the original PSGroove descriptor.h and commented out port 1 as in AerialX's descriptor.h with /* */ or it wouldn't compile, even though the commented out portion of AerialX's is different. So I believe it still has to do with descriptor.h
I understand it was commented out but it still doesn't explain why he would strip port1_config_descriptor down. It's pretty clear that onst uint8_t PROGMEM port1_config_descriptor is quite different, it is 1/2 the size of the descriptor.h from PSGroove 1.1 so now its time to figure out how to get this working
