CORE:

We have already discussed it, well now let me tell you how to use it:

1. Put the plugin in dev_hdd0 and add this line in boot_plugins.txt:"/dev_hdd0/habibplugin.sprx"
2. Put a 0 byte file in dev_usb000(rightest port of ps3).dev_usb000/core_flags/ps2
3. Restart your ps3 and if you get a reboot or 3 beeps it means SUCCESS!!

NOTE:

1. Don't try to spoof because you will get x.xx but if you did accidentally then you can do a reboot to fix it

2. PS2iso support on NON-BC PS3 ONLY!!!

Any 4.50 or higher can be installed. Again like other post you made, use the downgrader pup first, then change CFW

Hi, i used this and i think it may have bricked my ps3. After restart my ps3 turns on normally but i get no signal and my controller lights flash for 6 seconds then stop. Any chance of recovery ?

Edit: Was lucky enough to get into recovery menu thankfully, Reinstalling cfw from usb if thats no good ill try other options from the menu

Could someone tell me the pros/cons over the other please.

*also my ps3 is a slim so its not BC or even semi (whatever that means) BC

There are consoles that have ps2 backward compatibility (BC). There are full BC (hardware emulation) and semi (software emulation). So, hardware are CECHA and CECHB, and software are CECHC and CECHE.

P.S. This is what I remember, sorry if I'm not right.
