December 25, 2011 // 12:07 am - This holiday weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released PS3 Preloader Advance, a rewritten LV2Diag.self that allows restoring the Dev_Flash.bin file (to fix semi-bricked PS3 consoles) and has been tested on JFW DH CFW although it should work on all Custom Firmware he states.

Download: PS3 Preloader Advance SELF / PS3 Preloader Advance v2 SELF

To quote, roughly translated: Already available the tool to reset any "/ dev_flash". It is but a program that runs without external modules.

Why we find it being unable to load basic libraries housed in the "/ dev_flash" we must use direct syscalls to the kernel. The compilation is clean STUB external modules, hence it only takes a few KB ...

The function is to load the file "/ dev_usb000/flash1.bin" and write in RAW mode to the "/ dev_flash". But not before mounting the "/ dev_flash" Write mode.

It's simple but effective. There are dangers of bricks, but backup mistake or left unfinished for various reasons.

In principle works in all FIRMS, but mainly is designed to JFW-DH356MA by semibricks problems and instead of HDD when the system stored inside the "/ dev_flash".

But you have backups you can ask of anyone with the same firm or even removing it from the pup and mounting it on a FAT system. Its use is simple.

  • In Factory Mode to rename the "Preloader Advance.self" a "Lv2Diag.self" and copy it to USB.
  • Within the USB copy at the root of the flash backup named "flash0.bin"
  • Connect the USB into the port nearest the reader, and on the system. The LED blinks green. It means that restoring the flash.
  • When the process is shut down. Check the log it creates on the USB to be sure.
  • It only plays out of the factory mode with the "Lv2Diag.self" step2 flowing through the network.

PS3 Preloader Advance 2

Bring Preloader version 2 of the Advance.

Improvements:

  • Configuration file to select the actions.
  • Restore all flashes.
  • Make backups of all the flashes.
  • Optimization of the code.
  • Auto-Exit Service mode.

Operation:

  • Be in Service Mode.
  • Copy and advance.cfg Lv2Diag.self-in USB
  • Modify the file to taste advance.cfg
  • Insert the usb backups according to the advance.cfg
  • Switch with USB-introduced into the nearest port to the reader.

The Evidence:

CORE- While this well and allow access to the Service mode, this utility will recover all the flash. The change of HDD in a 3.56 version is not a problem on systems with NOR memories. No need to do an UPDATE THROUGH. Good luck!

From DemonHades, roughly translated:

Good friends demons, the wait has been tedious and frustrating, so jaicrab wants us this gift to the community to wish a Merry Christmas to all those you had a semibrick with the installation of the JMB or a bad installation in the flash.

Steps:

1. Prepare our dongle to put it in service mode (I used my amazebreak, but it any other apparatus to use the downgrader payload). Then enter the port and do the combo usb000 power and eject, will turn itself off the PS3.
2. Download the JFW-DH 3.56 MA 1.2.1 Service Pack
3. Download of demonisos.net and rename it to flash0.bin
4. Place in the root of the pendrive (flash0.bin), and also put in the root renamed the advance preloader Lv2Diag.self
5. Introduce the stick in the port usb000 (closest to the reader) and turn on the console.
6. The LED will blink green while working on the restoration, when finished will go out alone.
7. For get into the root end of the usb Lv2Diag.self used to exit the service mode (finalized).
8. Ya again have our PS3 alive with the JFW-DH 3.56 MA.

No more, now you can have it back running the PS3 and not afraid to mess up, this system is tested in fat60 (I have bricked mine) and I have it again making war, is valid for any model although format the hdd.

And without further, 1saludo departed JaiCraB MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the demons DemonHades and friends

Will this allow the running of games that include the 3.6x keys in their boot files? (ie Portal 2 and NCAA foOtball 12)

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?

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.
