153w ago - Following up on the MA BD Tool v0.8 for PS3 JFW DH 3.56 MA CFW, today JaicraB has updated the previous PS3 Preloader Advance 2 to version 3 followed by bugfix 3.1 alongside a guide by Chekco via DemonHades below.

Download: PS3 Preloader Advance 3.1 / PS3 Preloader Advance 3.1 (Mirror) / PS3 Preloader Advance 3.0 / PS3 Preloader Advance 3.0 (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: Hi all, as many know, when it published the JFW 3.56 MA-DH commented on the possibility of creating a virtual flasher to downgrade to 3.55 or less, well today is a fact that possibility so from now no one is "prisoner of MA", however it is a dangerous process, it is recommended to keep things clear and know what we are doing responsible are misuse said this. Let's begin:

The first is dump the data vital to our PS3, Aegean and we will use a configuration file download from the link below the pre3 (jaicrab.blogspot.com.es) and put in the root of the pen Archivo advanced.cfg, then rename the Lv2Diag.self to egea.self, create the following directory PS3/UPGRADE/egea.self.

Connecting to the USB port on the right and hope while reading the data from our ps3 "the process are between 3/5 minutes depending on the pen", when finished we will create the Backuprflash.bin. There are flash drives that are not compatible with egea, if we see that the ps3 starts normally change pendrive...

Good, the configuration file that will do is dump the rflash and flash1, flash2, flash3 once the reading process will turn off the ps3 and begins one of the most dangerous steps, we now have to patch the rflash with 3.55 core_os not chek, patch is recommended to follow the tutorials to dowgrades with physical flasher, but if you look confused or not know how. To be continued...

Thanks to:

JaiCraB, to create preloader 3 and include the MAD.
Varicela test this tool and give me a PS3 and which I used for this tool and other future purposes.
Kike for sacrificing your PS3.
Checko, to try all options.
Demonhades by atosigarme to do it.
M * D ** for the knowledge transmitted.
Black, to add the improvement of Service Mode

Sorry for my bad English

PS3 Preloader Advance 3 by JaicraB

I decided to make improvements to the previous Advance Preloader 2. A major improvement is the virtual controller (MAD). Can directly manipulate the NOR or NAND memories of our consoles without having a physical developer. This leads to a high risk of running out of console.

A bad patch and you would be required to settle a physical developer. It has been tested successfully in several models. This does not mean that there is any model that fails. I hope you will heap up head. I am not responsible for any damage. Another use is to make copies of data unique to each console.

This tool has been developed for systems and lower JFW 3.55 3.56 MA. It requires no external libraries. It works even without the dev_flash in the system. It can be launched as Lv2Diag.self, as in JFW EGEA MA SELF 3.56 or releasing from any FileManager that supports it. May soon be published as PKG.

1. Copy of rflash:

For systems with NOR (16MB) and NAND (256MB) (no bootloader). Available two ways to copy. The first 16MB, 256MB or whole (for NAND) The process takes 50 sec (16MB NOR), 15 sec (16MB NAND), 1 min (256MB NAND). In rflash entire system is stored on the PS3. There we find:

  • Asecure_loader
  • EEID
  • CISD
  • CCSD
  • Trvk_prg
  • Trvk_pkg
  • Ros (CoreOS)
  • Cvtrm
  • Bootloader (NOR models only)

It will create a file called "Backuprflash.bin" in the USB000.

2. Restoring the rflash (MAD):

This step is dangerous, a bad change in the original can cause rflash BRICK. A bad usage can only be repaired only with physical developer. Also available in two modes (16MB, 256MB). Designed primarily for downgrading systems with "JFW MA" and for systems with problems downgrader. Has option to restore only different sectors. (Experimental). The process can take NOR, auque See not work on USB not quench. The "rflash" must be copied to the USB as "rflash.bin" But this safe to do so ... Do not!

3. Copy and Restore "/ dev_flashX"

To safely handle the file system used in GameOS. It will create a file called "Backupflash1.bin", "Backupflash2.bin", "Backupflash3.bin" USB000 depending on the number of dev_flash chosen. You can mount that image in your PC so you can change and then restore it. It is also useful when the system downgrade option 2 "Restoring rflash" and change your firmware with the file system. To restore is to copy the image of the "dev_flash" USB000 named the "flashX.bin".

4. Dump LV2, LV1

It is an extra unimportant. You just have to be installed in the system SC 6, 7, 11 for the process. The file created will be named on USB000 "DumpLv2.bin", "DumpLv1.bin".

5. Service Mode

We can enter / exit the service mode. To enter service mode from the pre3 need patched systems with LV1.

6. Out mode

When you finish the processes indicated in advance.cfg can do is shut down or reboot the system.

Configuration file

The tool will locate the file "advance.cfg" in "/ dev_usb000/advance.cfg" (Port closer to the reader) You can do all the actions triggered sequentially. That is, you can program the rflash and dev_flash at a time, out of service mode and reboot. In the configuration file is detailed the activation of each action. Flashing green LED means you are working.

Where it is that Red is complete. Writing in NOR models will seem to be blocked. But the led usb flash every 20 seconds so slightly. Do not put out until you do one or put the red LED.

JFW 3.56 downgrade MA:

The process will be detailed demonhades.org community.

Easy change version:

With well patched the rflash (CoreOS not check) with their respective "dev_flashX" can be changed in a matter of 4 minutes (NAND) of any firmware using this tool. Will address the issue soon on demonhades.org

Thanks to:

Chickenpox test this tool and give me a PS3 and which I used for this purpose and other future purposes.
Kike for sacrificing your PS3.
Checko, to test all future tutorials opciones.Y use of that tool.
Demonhades by atosigarme to do it.
M * D ** for the knowledge transmitted.
Black, to add the improvement of Service Mode.

Following shortly after yesterday's revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 3 followed by Beta 4 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 / Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager Wiki

To quote, roughly translated: Well, given that D_Skywalk is "low" paternity and asked me to open a new thread, to update it, that I do, taking advantage we have new version

What's new:

1.60 Beta 3 Changelog:

  • Improved emulation ps1_emu. Fixed some bugs, besides adding security enhancements. There is no sound cuts so annoying, anymore.
  • Fixed problem with Internal_MC that were wrong (which should have got 0xa0 instead of 0x0a )
  • Added ability to create a formatted Internal_MC (Video / Others)
  • Added the ability to run ps1_netemu.self and ps1_emu.self from Iris directory (if they are copied to /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4. This opens the possibility (with a proper resign), to use emulators from a upper firmware in a lower one, and can be used patched or not)

1.60 Beta 4 Changelog:

  • Improveed ps1_emu emulation . now work games like Vagrant Story or Resident Evil
  • Added mode 3 to payload_storage to let launch the ISO for the cheats disc having a PSX disc on the drive. Just attach a pendrive, run with cheats and at the appropriate time, eject the ISO removing the pendrive. That works at least with Xploder 4 (if it’s necessary, you’ll have to eject the disc and insert it again: as soon as you detach the pendrive, the payload is disabled and the disc will work normally).
  • Fixed some bugs, like copying file when the USB is almost full.
  • All the payloads were modified to add a detection flag. That let you restart the console, for example, if you used multiMAN and the syscall 8 is inactive.

We continue in testing phase. In particular, I'm interested in receive reports from people that is having problems with black screens when they start the emulator (I got a check to see if the area of LV2 where I install is clean, but it could be the fcking of the instruction cache, therefore I have increased the number of cycles of the routine copy [+ laughs])

Following up on his previous update, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (aka Hermes) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 2 with the changes below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2)

To quote, roughly translated: Well, given that D_Skywalk is "low" paternity and asked me to open a new thread, to update it, that I do, taking advantage we have new version

First of all, I would like to put three conditions:

1) I do not carry version control, because in github I canceled, I have no desire to go back to those bastards and git all problems are often under Windows, as not handle http addresses. So I'll post a RAR and point and if someone wants to take control of versions, back on, but for now, I'm not.

2) The official version is that we D_Skywalk and me. Your contributions are welcome, within a limit, it has been said that the GUI should be the same, basically, and not be breaking the application schema. That does not mean that you may not go it alone and break it in your own way, you will have to call but then otherwise your application, by request of D_Skywalk.

Obviously, if the changes are minor, no need to change the application name, but it is not in competition, if not collaboration. If that is respected, I have no objection to lend you aid, etc.

3) The third condition is rather a request that anyone who drives the Wiki, should be an entry "Iris Manager" to link it in this post and facilitaros the task if you or any morning for example, I abandoned the project.

And now, to the point: What's new:

  • Added PSX emulation syscall level: it is no longer necessary to patch the emulators and versions can delete "patched"
  • Works with ps1_netemu. Moreover, it is my choice RECOMMENDED smoother and games will I have to go wrong with ps1_emu, here are perfect
  • Files are needed. Cue with the same name as the. Bin. Img, etc, to describe the audio tracks. If it contains only the binary data, Iris Manager generates its corresponding TOC. psx_storage default also generates a TOC enough for this type of game. As I can complete wakefulness psx_storage operation.
  • Ability to load an external ROM to allow access to the transmission Memory Card (getting into a file dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4 ps1_rom.bin).
  • If you press CIRCLE + EQUIS with external ROM enabled, runs ejected disc so you can access the PSX MC Manager without having to disconnect the USB device. Unplugging / replugging once, the disc will be mounted and run.

More details IMPORTANT iso.txt psx 1.60, within the file Rar.

Regards

Finally, from butnut comes some related feedback, as follows: With version 1.60 beta 2, Chrono Cross does not freeze when you go into the status screen, and Vigilante 8 has working music too (V8 requires .cue file)

mahidi... had the same problem first... just follow the exact tutorial... check all the files u need! if only one file is missing it isn't working... i'm still waiting on a filemanager and dev_blind access....

also a last game like from mm would be great... so we can create xmb mount files... btw 8x4 cover sounds pretty good... i think this shouldn't be hard to do...

the only problem is if the developer will ever listen to our request... i will bet if he would add these futures a lot of people would say goodbye too mm...

What's new:

Changelog 1.55

  • Support CFW 4.31 from Miralastijeras (Thanks to the author for help to make the port easier)
  • New Homelaunc1 for CFW 4.31
  • NEW PATCH FOR PS1 EMULATOR: it fixes the issues when some games were calling the ps1_netemu. The fix is done faking the disc ID in the sector 16. That was the reason of the black screen of games like Chrono Cross, but inserting another PSX disc THAT game worked.
  • New patch to simulate the extended info for the TOC, in case it is needed.
  • IMPORTANT: the ps1_emu from 4.31 can be used. Please, use one from 4.30 or previous. Estwald has to check if it is feasible the emulation via syscall. The big issue is to find where to store the code, that is large to support all versions.
  • Fixed some minor bugs from the previous version.

Following up on his previous revisions, this weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the Iris Manager PS3 game backup manager to version 1.54 with the changes detailed below alongside some additional languages, PS1_EMU PKG files and themes.

Download: Iris Manager v1.54 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / IrisManager (Language) Catala.pkg / IrisManager (Language) Catala.pkg (Update) / IrisManager (Language) English.pkg / IrisManager (Language) Italian.pkg / IrisManager (Language) Portuguese BR.pkg / IrisManager (Language) Portuguese BR.pkg (based on this PT-PT) / IrisManager (Language) Portuguese.pkg / IrisManager (Language) Portuguese.pkg by brunolee / IrisManager (Language) Spanish.pkg / IrisManager (Language) French.pkg by Markus95 / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 3.55.pkg (ps1_emu_patched2) / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 4.21.pkg / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 4.30.pkg / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 3.55.pkg / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 4.21.pkg / IrisManager (PSOne Emu) 4.30.pkg / IrisManager (Music) AxelF.pkg / IrisManager (Music) Metallica.pkg / IrisManager (Music) MK cia.pkg / IrisManager (Music) MK Cm.pkg / IrisManager (Music) MK.pkg / IrisManager (Music) MK2.pkg / IrisManager (Music) Prodigy.pkg / IrisManager (Theme) PSOne.pkg by brunolee / Iris Manager PSX Compatibility List

To quote, roughly translated: What's new:

  • Added possibility to extract ISO PSX (Game Copy option, press Select on PSX disc) from multiple disks.
  • Added possibility to use tricks disk: ISO hits the / PSXGAMES / CHEATS. The iso should be 2352 bytes per sector that can then be used to adapt to other sizes, creating replicas. For example, the Xploder 4 is not even 10 MB, so it's no big deal to have multiple versions. When asked if you want to start using it and mount it as a first album. See notes for details (the name is the same, I just need an extension and a sector size correct, internally, is list what is in that directory looking for a valid ISO)
  • Changed BD Emu options: there are now separate options for internal or external disk: In internal: libfs always takes patched, can not mount or play as hard. In external: if you mount the disk, not taken libfs patched and is the recommended option. With libfs only recommend it for games that have cached data in the internal HDD.
  • Enabled L2 to show games. At first, the first option to show only R2 PS3 games, while if you press L2 would PSX

And now about other things:

  • I see that you are using my Deank ps1_emu patches. That's no problem, since precisely, if I do things is public for anyone to be able to use, obviously. The problem is that it does not usually release the source code in compliance with applicable licenses and thereby not allowing others we can benefit from their contributions as he takes advantage of ours.
  • BD-Emu Theme internally mounted: roll both not flushed the Grid and it works perfectly [+ laughs]. How not work was if you used the game on installing external internal data (a waste, since most of the game is in that file).
  • PS2-PSP Topic: I'm not going to put up with it.
  • Theme D_Skywalk: I know nothing of the boy and has me worried. Other than that, with the whole thing, I'm getting a lot of changes in the sources and I hope there is no problem then ...
  • Move Topic: besides I have not Move, I can not use v2 PSL1GHT even compile, among other things, because compilers do not support my IF Mode Pointer and is already a pain without having to play more, and to have to settle a new library on the old woman ends up not being consistent. Perhaps we should look at that bear Iris V2, but first would have to have compilers and toolchain oopo as we know it (you throw two hours compiling something to the end, leave a mistake that you do not know where it comes. That at least since Windows [+ laughs])
  • Thread Dump PSX disc: in psx.c is a very nice routine called read_raw_sector () to read entire sectors. Maybe someone interested as used

Iris Manager Tutorial by LoboGuara

Things you need:


Install the Iris PKG on your PS3 (The pkg is inside the rar file: irismanager-4-x.pkg)

1. Extract the Iris Manager rar file on your PC
2. Inside the Iris uncompressed folder, you will see a file named patch_ps1emu.rar. Extract this file
3. Extract TrueAncestor SELF resigner and copy the contents of the DATA folder (ldr_curves, vsh_curves, keys) to the patch_ps1emu DATA folder.
4. Copy the file /dev_flash/ps1emu/ps1_emu.self (using FTP or a file Manager) and put this file into the patch_ps1emu extracted folder
5. Run patch_ps1emu.bat with Administrator privileges
6. Copy the generated ps1_emu_patched2.self to the IRIS MANAGER folder on PS3 (usually /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4)

Example: /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/ ps1_emu_patched2.self

Preparing your PSX ISOS:

On your EXTERNAL USB device, create a folder called “PSXISOS”

/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/

Inside the PSXGAMES folder, create a foder with the game name

Example: /dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/CrashBandicoot/

Inside the game folder, put your ISO/BIN/IMG and Optionally, a JPG image named “Cover.jpg” (to get the cover showing on Iris Manager game list),

The Directory structure should be like this: /dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/CrashBandicoot/CrashBandicoot.iso

If the game has multiple disks, put the other disk images in the same folder respecting the filename of the first disc. Example

/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc1.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc2.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc3.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc4.ISO

The Cover image must not exceed 10241024 in size. Done. Your PSX games will now apperar on Iris Game list

Note: there is a pkg containing the patched ps1_emu_patched2.self , you can download it HERE if you are having problems patching your own file. Im not recommending using it, since i have not tested this pkg myself.

Example of the correct folder structure using Iris Manager:

s3nint3!
PS3 GAMES:

Iris Manager will search for your PS3 games on /dev_usb000/GAMEZ instead of GAMES. If you are a multiMAN user, you can just rename your GAMES folder to GAMEZ. Since multiMAN search for games in both GAMES and GAMEZ folder, you will have no problems.

GAME COVERS:

You can use the same multiMAN “covers” on Iris Manager! Just copy the “covers” folder into the Iris Manager directory

Ex: /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/covers

Tips: To load the last played game: Hold L1 at Iris Manager startup. Sorting the games by system: Press L2 (PSX) or R2 (PS3). Game config: Select your PSX/PS3 game and press SELECT. General config: Press START

Iris Manager Translations: brunolee provide a nice language pkgs, you can get these translations linked above. Just install the respective .pkg and you are done! Have fun! If you have any doubts/questions, dont hesitate to ask!
