174w ago - 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.

Happy Holidays to all.

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

This weekend some videos were posted by Kike and DemonHades demonstrating MAPS3LV2_Load alongside multiMAN 4.0 on JFW-DH CFW 3.56 MA.

To quote, roughly translated: Hello demons, as we all know after the departure of JFW-DH 3.56 some users have experienced an error.

For example: black screenshots consoles backwards compatible with PS2 games, movie reproduction in BD, mini games... This is why a patch of MA LV2 gives some kind of conflict... So the mini games do not work etc.

Well that was till today, after a large study by blackdeath I come to show how we solved these problems little by little in the next video will MAps3lv2_load, basically what we can do is load a new LV2 in ram as the mini games are no longer a problem.




UPDATED: Well I can say that the problem of the failure of some movie is playing by the lv2 stripe! I have all working all my movies from the ofw lv2. I will continue with detail. Uninformed of saludo. Kike

UPDATED-2: From dust and also works MASCOMPATIBLELV2 loading and imagine the PS2 games also but without a retro console I can not prove.

UPDATED-3: Multiman OR 4.00 THANKS TO THE FUNCIONAND MASCOMPATIBLELV2, This is because deank, lock the keys of MA... 1 greeting deank.




Acknowledgements: blackdeath, by leaving us more impressed every day, to show us the way DemonHades By and by their daily struggle.. mak, kiki (without you this would not be the same THANKS for being there every day) there... and kike, to continue showing me every day that is a bully: lol: Na seriously is a pleasure to be with you in office greetings...

No, not yet. It's just for JFW DH users who want to use the partial fix and play it.

Haven't they learned by now videos aren't proof of anything when it comes to the PS3 scene as they can all easily be faked. I can make a video of this playing on OFW 3.41 but I don't release fake videos that's why I wont do it.

Don't believe anything you see in a video in the PS3 scene.
