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.

I have tried to boot SwapMagic DVD 3.6 and of course it didn't work, it just kick me back to XMB. It would be great if someone can port the OSDSYS environment to the ps2_netemu (as was done for TN-V on PSVita). Instead games like Dark Cloud (PAL version) works perfectly.
multiMAN v04.20.04 Update (20130321) is now available from deank with the changes outlined below, as follows:
The online version of mM is updated to support 4.40CFW. Rogero/Rebug can use it to test their upcoming firmwares. It doesn't have lv2 mem protection patched in LV1, but other than that all the stuff is there: BD Movie region change, DYNAREC, payload, PSX backups, PS3 backups, etc.
LV1 patches are added, too. Now direct-disc-access should work too, ps1 disc-backups should work, along with everything else.
mM online version is now fully compatible with 4.40CFW. All tested on 4.40CFW and everything works. Here it is for those who want to test or to be prepared and ready:
Fatal frame 1,2,3
Final Fantasy (X, X-2, XII) Confirmed Working
Valkirie profile 2
Resident Evil outbreak (1,2)
Kingdom hearts 2
Silent Hill games (due to the original HD collection sucks)
