New categories such as Multimedia, PS3 Loader, Thegra, Homebrew, Emulators, manager set aside the typical native application. Photos, Music, Videos, TV, disappear to make way for Multimedia.
This new category gives rise to a union of native options like photo, music and video. This new category will appear the famous player Showtime, which already includes the possibility of a single application in many more options than what they offered us the categories natively native officers.
- Reproduction native (the PS3 system) MUSIC, PHOTOS and VIDEO, DVD, BD, photo gallery and soon Cdaudio the VidZone, memories and play qriocity
- Listen to music
- Being able to see videos like avi, mpeg, xvid, divx, MKV including
- View photos
- Demand movies
This new category was born to take charge from now manage the contents of the old Sony consoles, this means that both PS1/PS2/Minis Games and the saves these become part of this new category, freeing imnecesarios to GAME icon.
It is also where you store the backups RetroLoader (aka modified cobrausb backup manager) responsible for managing the games PS1, PS2 and PS3
Thegra - the new star category and plugins
This new category includes the plugins manager, service packs. Thegra is the name of the loader plugins, these plugins will give the console first choices, which the imagination of every developer could unleash the potential of this charger.
- Return of the online (running)
- Update of keys (working)
- Spoof Version
- Disable devices
- Mounted units, several readers virtual
- Plugins level conbinacion buttons on the six
- Modification speedfun speed
- Multiloader (operating)

- Hacked signature verification token QA (running)
- PSN access sysversion check "no spoof nor certs" (running)
- Check-patching the original disks (operating)
- Activation of the 8th SPU
This new category will be responsible for having ordered all the old console emulators.
This new category includes all homebrew created to date, for it will have access to from where you can download OpenPStore the last hombrews etc. to be placed automatically at their place of origin and not as the previous game.
This category will see that we can easily able to manage the game saves, pkgs, ftp, etc.
Cobra JFW Payload Plugin
- DH and has advanced the issue.
New Item Linux
The JFW DH was gonna be no less, that includes 2 options to use Linux back in the console, in this regard are:
JFW Preloader - The recovery of 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.
Services include basic Packs to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.
Compatibility with Games and Applications
- Using a DH-JFW 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
- The DH-JFW is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55
- DH-JFW 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 (including loaders and other files)
- Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55
- Support for peripherals is not licensed by sony in that medium 355 is eliminated leaving them unused
- The only custom firmware can take the keys with a dual NAND 3.6x (programmer) such as PNM and that allows the custom appldr redirect to another area of the ram and so does not remove the old
- Theme DHorg exclusive community that will change randomly each time the console or ignite the user cambieis
- More surprises

More PlayStation 3 News...
This upcoming CFW is the most exciting news in a long time. The license generator for PSN games especially caught my attention, one of my PSN games hasn't been functional since 3.41, so perhaps this could take care of it. As for activating the 8th SPU, too bad it won't do any good for games considering they're programmed to use a maximum of 6 so I suppose it'd only be good for homebrew. Would it be possible to disable the hypervisor security that runs on 1 of the SPUs? Having all 8 SPUs available for the lulz would be nice.
wow ps2 games and PSN access this sound like the best thing in a long time happening to my PS3, I hope PSN solution works for long but guess that would be stupid to wish for any way PS2 games running will be fun.
Some people use software to convert psx games into eboots for the psp. Would there be anyway to convert those into being compatible with the PS3?
Very nice.... 2 PS3's minimum downgrade on 40gb fat 1.90 and 2.90 on my slim. Now just need the FW released, i think its gonna be fun to play with. Thanks DH
Will this allow the running of games that include the 3.6x keys in their boot files? (ie Portal 2 and NCAA foOtball 12)
So my question is, my ps3 shipped with 3.42 from the factory. If this is based on the 3.41 am i screwed?
I'm guessing that you need a backwards compatible ps3 for the ps2 backups? how about the ps1 backups, how does that work? can we run from img? or what?
Yeah, I'm trying to figure out the same thing, and then there's the ps1 eboots for psp/ps1.
