    CVOS v3.1 BETA Arrives, Recover Your Bricked PS3 Console

    Today nesi_tor at DemonHades Forum (linked above) has released CVOS v3.1 BETA homebrew application, which allows users to recover bricked PS3 consoles.

    Download: CVOS v3.1 BETA for PS3

    To quote, roughly translated: Features
    • Check and analyze the dump correcting the flaws that have this and thus repairing the internal firmware of our PS3.
    • It can extract the various files that make up the core of our PS3 (read lv2_kernel.self, eurusfw.bin, etc...).
    • Lets look at both full NAND Dumps as desenciptados CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg packages provided to analyze your files.
    • Finds and extracts the User Profile (EID, bootloaders, etc) the dump interlaced with the flow rebuilder.

    What you need:
    • Full Dump and PS3 NAND memory unit, Version 3.55

    This is awesome! Does this work on other FW versions or just 3.55?

    No - (especially if its bricked) you are going to have to wire an interface to your PS3's flash chip(s) to read/write to them - not for the inexperienced user!

    We should seriously get an application like the xbox1 for reading the nand off our ps3s for future backup. But then again we have to wire anyway to write back the backup...

    i hope there will someday a easy usb method to unbrick a console, but i'm pretty sure this will take a year or more to get in concept...
