October 16, 2010 // 7:21 pm - Update: PSGroove Hermes v4B is now released with a changelog detailed HERE along with PSGroove Hermes v4B Hex Codes and a Hermes v4B TI-84 Hex Code and Hermes v4B Hex Codes for all other boards along with PSGroove Hermes Linux v4B.

Since bidding farewell yesterday, Spanish PS3 developer Hermes has shared one final v4 Custom PSGroove payload with everyone!

Download: Hermes v4 Final Custom PSGroove Payload / Hermes v4 TI-84 / PSGroove Hermes Hex Codes / PSGroove Hermes Linux v4 / Hermes v4 PIC18FXXXX Hex Code / Hermes V4 Fixed for PIC18FXXXX / Rockbox PSGroove Payload Hermes v4 / Hermes v4 USB TinyMKII (LED Support) / Arduino PL3 Hermes v4B / PIC18FUSB PSGroove Hermes v4B

To quote, roughly translated:

Update: Added source code version v4 with the latest patches found (are grateful to Mathieulh their contributions). This is my final contribution for those who want to return to work and develop it, I go up for reasons of commitment and that the scene is a collective work.


- New Address 0x80000000007ff000 end of the payload at the end of the Kernel in order to add the extra code needed (the code is relocatable, if necessary)

- Added support syscall 8 with Stealth and other kernel functions such as copy, allocate memory, perform routine, add path table (for replacement / redirection of files and directories), etc. (see syscall8.h for details)

- Support for Homebrew in / apps_home/PS3_GAME similar to a flash drive or connected on / dev_usb000/PS3_GAME

- Syscall redirection 36 games to run diskless / apps_home/PS3_GAME

Sorry to keep you waiting, but today I had family commitments and the thread was closed when I'm gone.

First, say that I have uploaded what I have so far: includes the patches that we have mentioned in another thread and some new ones. The main novelty is that it has "cleaned" the source code to eliminate double relocation of the code, since we do not need.

Also included a new dynamic patching system comes in handy to allow redirection of / apps_home a / dev_bdvd in games, to receive as first parameter EBOOT.BIN path correctly, if that could cause some problem.

I climb the V4 that already had committed and if other people want to continue development (the scene is a collective, not as a team, everyone is free to contribute whatever they want and how you want and at a time want).

Secondly, I thank you for the support you have shown me.

If you do not mind, I would like to discuss a few things in the remainder of the post.

I have 41 years and at that age, one is clear about certain things and know why you get rings and what not. As some know, I'm not a professional programmer, but a construction worker unemployed (like many others, unfortunately), which devotes her time to a hobby (which is in unemployment assistance, that there is something to kill time ) And shares what he does with others, for the simple detail that positions and why not all benefit?

Interestingly, I usually get into these "fregaos" because sometimes I see things are rudderless and I think I can contribute ideas and my point of view and in the electronic scene, but never on a pair of hands and a brain that provides . So touching roll up, we roll up, all of course, non-profit or to cash in on any class that is not what is sought.

Obviously, one is not stupid and knows that is what's going on around here: there is always profiting rock that takes advantage of the work of others, without contributing anything (or if they bring improvements, "close" to each other) and there are always people strip of land the job of others.

This is what usually bother me, as is logical and understandable, since obviously I'm not here for companies that skirt the law or not, is profiting without contributing anything at all and I have a perfect right, such circumstances or otherwise, participate in setting the scene and fix my code working with this scene and its exclusions.

In this case, I decided that because a company is using not only the code, if not my nick as bait advertising, making misunderstand that I'm behind that product, fail to develop a code that make for entertaining and that you I offer to you as anonymous people who are, without either profit interests.

Some people do not want to understand this and think "bah, is a childish temper tantrum in plan" or "not as annoying, because Hermes is also a nickname adopted and this Easter."

Instead what I think is that who are they to judge my decision and I am the less I lose if I participate, so do not know why some people think that I win something by participating. And that applies to those who charge you 30 bucks for a chip applications or develop them as needed and not me.

And if I believe that one has crossed a line where I say enough, not only my right, but it seems logical to give back the ball and say "ale, nice people do not want to bring you the car?. Since take you peak and shovel and herding "

I have no financial backing behind consoles or debug or retail consoles with different firmware, or special devices that teensy but I rode or USBKey I bought. Is not it logical that those who live on this, whatever they have to make improvements? Or I have to do the time for R & D department inadvertently?

Anyway, I think the thing is clear: for the time step will continue doing nothing and being the turn of others to pick up the baton and show that besides making chips and collect dollars, also bring improvements to their customers or scene in general, without taking single code or a nickname borrowed from others as a decoy, because basically, they offer nothing.

Ahh.. It's sad to see you go Hermes !! but... I can see your troubles over it all and blame you not.

Yes, the 'scene' should act collectively, but I think it's safe to say that you have helped mold the face of what we currently know as the Jailbreak Payload beyond measure!

Take care my friend and thank you for your huge contribution to the scene!

Hello all - I'm pretty new to the PS3 JB scene and am trying to get up to speed on the basics. Is this hex/payload the most up-to-date & allows me to play the most games currently? I'm reading around here and there seems to be multiple payloads being used, and I'm not sure what differentiates all of them.

hi, newbie here looking for some help and it looks like im in the right place.

ok i recently bought a p3hub2 to break my ps3. currently i am using hermes v4 and a load manager.

however i have read that there are better "combinations" to make mo0re games work? (i.e. fifa 2011, pro evo 11 mafia 2 etc etc...)

could someone tell me the best way to go about this download? I downloaded the "Hermes V3 + Patch Waninkoko + 2 Fix Update Math + Fix Update Hermes" hex, however i am unsure how to put the files onto the hub as there are multiple hex's. is there a software that i can use to put all the hex's in one go? the current software i am using that i downloaded from p3hub doesn't even allow me to transfer the first hex.

I am absolutely clueless and my lack on knowledge on the subject means i dont even understand what you guys are talking about!! could someone please break it down to me in like a "the dummys dummy guide".

Much appreciated.
