Today stoker25 via PSX-Scene has released CFWLoad v1.0 with source code, which he states is essentially a clone of JaicraB's PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader with a few differences for people with USBs that have different numbers.
Download: CFWLoad v1.0 for PS3
For those interested in modifying the PlayStation 3 registry files, previously he released a PS3 Registry xRegistry.sys File Editor followed by PS3 Multi Tool v0.2.
To quote on his latest release:
It's a clone of JaicraB's USB FIRM LOADER, with a few differences for people like me with USBs that have different numbers.
- Choose what USB to use!
- Redirect dev_flash to usb
- Redirect app_home to usb
- Dump LV2 kernel and mount points
...along with all the source code that does it
NOTE: You need a payload with peek and poke syscalls (PL3 dev has this).
- X - (Un)Patch /dev_flash as usb
- Square - (Un)Patch /app_home as usb
- Select - Dump lv2.bin & mounts.bin to usb
- Up/Down - Change USB
- Triangle - Exit
The dev_flash files have to be on the root of the USB drive to work, e.g. if E:/ is your drive, you should have E:/vsh, E:/vsh/modules, etc...
Make a PS3_GAME folder on your USB for the thing in the Game menu to work. App has some bugs, but it is my first PS3 program.
