The JFW DH was gonna be no less, that includes 2 options to use Linux back in the console, in this regard are:
Preloader, Recovery Boot - The JFW DH includes a preloader that is responsible for:
Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
Flashing copies from an external drive (usb).
Update the Preloader
Home of the flash write access (not necessarily more alejandro or substitutes)
The advantages are not required reinstalling all the PUP (from hardware checks) do not need to do: composite or go through the recovery
These packs include the basics in order to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.
Compatibility with Games and Applications
JFW DH uses a 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
The JFW DH is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55
JFW DH runs natively games until 3.56 (original disks) without having to upgrade.
PSN games that require npdrm 356, are also supported without upgrading (the current cfw not give this support)
No need for a valid signature on the executable
Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55

JFW The DH is based on the Firmware 3.41 v2 but is fully compatible with games requiring firmware 3.56 and earlier (3.55 patched games included).
Game discs that require firmware 3.56 or earlier without having to spend to update the console.
The PSN games that require a compatible NPDRM 3.56 without updating.
Executables do not need to be signed.
And the video of JFW DH: The video shows the personal side with a CFW Coldboot / Soundboot changed and a new category "RetroLaunch" Minis are supported and saves them (PS1/PS2 games and their backups will also be part of this category).
Those who wondered what the icon is black "JaiCraB", it must match the Firm USB Loader. DemonHades invites us to participate in their topic in order to advance the project as still no publication date.

multiMAN v4.04.00 (available through the update option in multiMAN) / http://code.google.com/p/multiman/source/list
Fixed something that annoyed some users of 5x4x5, 4×2 and XBDM display modes: After restart (or going to mmOS and back) game modes 5x4x5, 4×2 and XBDM will display the last selected entry (game/video/music/photo) and will *not* reset to dash mode
Added option to "Default Display Mode" setting: [Disable]; If there is no display-mode-lock it will make mM start in the last used display mode
FTP session timeout set to 1 minute
Added context menu when desktop is selected (to Refresh, Create New Folder, Show Desktop, Reset mmOS, Restore Wallpaper)
Added "Permissions" to context menu when single folder is selected (to reset folder access permissions)
Double clicking on .p3t (PS3 theme) will copy/install the file/theme to PS3 XMB themes system folder (/dev_hdd0/theme); user can later install it from XMB
Added support for creating shortcuts to /net_host PC shares
Folders created on the desktop now open properly
Desktop shortcuts to /ps3_home/video, music and photo now have proper icons and open the virtual folder and not the /dev_hdd0/* one
Desktop shortucts to games/executables (EBOOT.BIN/.SELF) can be used to boot external apps or mount games
Game Compatibility / CFW Related (KMEAW/REBUG/ROGERO 3.55CFWs):
Improved compatibility for the so-called "Black-Screen-Games" (BSG) which *until now* required the "BD-Mirror" option and worked ONLY from external usb HDD (otherwise game would lock/loop/error during load).
Now users of the listed firmwares can use the "BD-Mirror" option for game backups stored in the INTERNAL HDD. It may improve the compatibility of over 100 games (some older titles, some newer), for example AC1 / Colin Dirt 1 / Prince Of Persia / CoD / MW / Tomb Raider, incl. titles which had sound issues.
A partial list of some games that may gain from the new option can be found here:
http://pastie.org/pastes/4115732/text (by GotIt4Free / tortuga-cove.com)
It is now possible to set "BD-Mirror" option for games in Internal HDD and it enables the new functionality. The option works both with PS3 Game Disc in the tray and in discless mode from /app_home.
The option is available in the "Game Settings" menu for each game in the list
