February 10, 2012 // 4:48 pm - Hi sceners, today I have a nice little preview video for you of a new alphabetical sort XMB hack for AC1D CFW.

You may ask now what's the diff to bahamuloard's txt editing one? Well you will see in the video but I'll also explain it here. First his one is a txt edit where mostly on the PS3 txt files are reflections of definitions not real definition files.

Then he edits 3 definitions and the PS3 for sure will rewrite minimum 2 off them and in most case she overwrite all 3. I needed hours of tries to get it only for one time working and even then it doesn't worked for the ALL mode in the game category.

So this hack is real and work for all three modes: Format, Tags and All. Also it works for the other categories like Video or Photo.

I hope for a Beta release of AC1D CFW within the next 1 or two weeks. I'm still working on the convert of Retail 2 Debug consoles and also on the PS3 3.6+ game support. And now enjoy the video and stay tuned.

Have Fun -cfwprpht-

this actually works, i'm running bdemuV2. i selected rebug mode. i didn't need to change any other settings. started multiman and booted Alice Madness and bulletstorm without a dongle

^^ actually most of them don't work it seems that only them two do..

I'm guess that enabling a dex to play bd movies should be possible but we will see. If you want i'll share special downgrader pups with you but they are also in the new released 4.0 sdk. So just let me know.

MM for Dex will not play a BD movie, in case? Thanks for your kind answer, cfwprophet

Speaking about special_downgrader.pup.. do you mind to upload me the pup (PM is ok)? It's the only file missing on my sdk 3.70 pack.

Yes having a debug console would be great. A full debug console in it self is a kind of jailbreak(except it is designed by Sony on purpose), being able to run HB code and load game backups (using fselfs of course) and more.

The only problem I foresee with converting retail units to full debug units is losing the ability to play Blue-Ray movies, but one can't have everything. I wonder how Sony would respond to the scene getting a working CEX to DEX kit.

Yep for the reasons ps3hen mentoined and also for downgrading even up to latest fw and the abbility to use homebrew in case of we can decrypt the allready existing hb and fake sign them with actuall SDK's. A full dex converted console can be updated and then downgraded via special_downgrader.pup's.

Also sony changed something with the PS3GEN tool. On older versions you can't use retail selfs to gen a ISO img. Now the newer tools also accept retail signed and encrypted games. Maybe this is in case off that now also retail eboot's can be run with a generated ISO via streaming from pc or/and also as a bd-emu img.

And for the dex kernel. It can be run on retail conosole with QA flag, changed IDPS but thats still NOT a full debug console. There are still other things that need to be done.

Uhm. Maybe. Let's see cfwprophet's opinion (as much i suppose will be the same you wrote)

I think it is because with full debug capabilities you can boot into modes other than "Release Mode", like "Debugger Mode" which supposedly is the key to using the ps2 emulator on non-BC ps3s and running debug eboot.bin files.

Or at least that's how I've interpreted it. As far as I know, to do this you flag your ps3 in the right places so the DEX lv2_kernel.self will run and give full debug capabilities. But where and with what is not fully known, well not publicly at least.

Why you need permanent dex settings? Purpose?
