November 26, 2011 // 5:15 pm - Following up on their initial release and IrisManager application, this weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer DemonHades has made available a JFW DH 3.56 MA PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) Installation Tutorial.

To quote, roughly translated: Installation Tutorial for JFW DH 3.56 MA

This tutorial is designed so that the user makes a comfortable and easy installation "DH JFW 3.56 MA" without risk of incorrect installation either. Before starting the installation we will clear some things:

What is the DH JFW 356 MA?

It is the first CFW 3.56 for the system, thanks to DH 356 JFW MA, locked in 3.56 users who are unable to downgrade have a chance to scene, so if you'll need a flasher. For users who are at 3.55 or 3.41 will not need the flasher for installation.

How is unlike the rest of the current CFW?

3.56 The DH JFW is made by sceners MA Spanish and we thought both users who are locked up like that scene today have at 3.41/3.55.

The DH JFW 3.56 MA has features that no other CFW has, such as preloader, Thegra, etc...

It also has a number of tools and addons that are still developing, these are:

  • JMAB (XMB design and organization of the new categories JFW)
  • IrisMAnager356
  • OpenPStore
  • UsaveME
  • EGEA
  • MAD
  • PS3control
  • CallGate
  • Thegra
  • BOMA

Detailed below and each one is to be used.

If I upgrade to 3.56 MA DH JFW get trapped forever?

No, you can do downgrade / update, thanks to MAD.

What is MAD?

A virtual flasher that does not require welding in 356MA.

What I can run the risk having it installed?

None if you follow exactly the installation.

Will support the DH JFW 3.56 MA?

If both errors and retrofit.

If I find errors in the DH JFW 3.56 MA, whom I must communicate in order to make the correction?

Mainly must communicate in explaining what happened.

Installation Process JFW 3.56 DH MA

Files needed for this process:

Installation process:

1. Download the JFW 3.56 DH MA.

2. Check with the MD5 Software is correct when published in this tutorial.

3. Watch the PS3 version you have installed the JFW Before Dh 3.56 MA, must have 3.55 or 3.41.

4. Downloaded the update has to go in the following path of pendrive: PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP

5. Insert the stick into the PS3 XMB I install it from the PUP as if an ordinary question.

6. Once installed restart PS3 and go.

Important notice: The DH JFW 3.56 MA includes live via PKG service mode, you should not use it unless you know the subject and even fewer use the flashing Lv2Diag.self... will have a total brick.

Also if you mistakenly enter service mode, you can go put in the root of the pendrive Lv2Diag.self of 220kb on usb0 to exit the service mode you will find in the thread of DH 3.56 JFW MA.

Today aquilino has made available a PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 alongside a demonstration video of it in action for Custom Firmware users.

Download: PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 / PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: Hello fellow for here I leave my bit for this firmware that has the potential juju. Based picker rebug author jjolano.

Selector is a QA or debug menu instead of using an addon for each menu I joined the two addon and you only have to choose. The interface is simple console like the way I do not know, reminds me of "Startpatch" of the Wii still in line console mode.

It is in English if that change is Spanish for the people. Created PSL1GHT SDK. This slim JFW tested on my DH and all ok, not tested on fat. Notice that writes to the flash homebrew, I take responsibility for its misuse.


  • Start button: QA mode
  • Button select: debug mode
  • Button x: we went to the PS3 menu

As stated in the logo only for JFW DH.

Video demonstration of their functioning:

Hello, here I (aka Blackdeath) bring users a PS3 BD Tool add-on utility for JFW DH 3.56 MA CFW, which allows you to quickly and simply obtain the information of the PlayStation 3 BD reader from JMB without Linux.

Download: PS3 BD Tool: JFW DH 3.56 MA CFW Add-On

How It Works:

This tool will take out the HRL both the default reader as currently used by the console and leave you in a log with all the information pertinent to this besides dumps an important part of them to USB, plus it also includes the possibility that if a movie BD inserted before running this tool you MKB_RO.INF the dump in the usb along with HRL and the log where you can cap your version have direct current MKB.

Mode Of Operation:

  • If you are going to use the tool you ought to connect a usb port closest to the reader (dev_usb000), It will dump you there the HR
  • It is not compatible with the rest of CFW.

More details are available on the DH site here with a rough translation below:

Good friends, this time with another utility come more attuned to those researching on the subject or more BD playback on BD so here you have an addon for MA only with a simple but useful power and this addon will allow MA to get information about the BD quickly and easily from the JMB without linux as before with the sg3-utils.

This tool will take out the HRL the reader both the default (empty) as currently used by the console and leave you in a log all the information relevant to this besides dumpearos an important part of them to USB, plus it also includes the possibility that if a movie bd inserted before running this tool you MKB_RO.INF the dump the USB with the HRL and the log where you can cap have your version of MKB directly today.

This can be used in addition to guide recovery of reproduction to stop here:

As you see new facilities unique to MA for community members to research the BD.
