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-

dev_blind 1.1 doesn't create dev_fflash just because of that risk of brick?

"Dev_blind v1.1: The app mounts dev_flash to the location dev_blind and enables full read and write permissions to the PS3's flash.(Use it to write files to ‘/dev_fflash’ (double f) directory, instead of ‘/dev_flash’–to prevent system brick and issues.)"

I know it's gonna get merged but I can't edit my posts, FreeFlash 3.55 is the one that makes dev_fflash, I was mistaken.

You can still easily brick with dev_blind as it does edit dev_flash files, all dev_blind does is let you edit dev_flash as you cant edit it directly.

using dev_blind you don't write directly to dev_flash, thus protecting your ps3 from bricks.
besides for file transfer, Multiman's FTP server is ok me thinks.

Libsysutil_game_exec.sprx ?
they're under dev_flash/sys/external.

do we have to use dev_blind.pkg to transfer the files? couldn't we use comgenie?

I've also re-uploaded the 4.00 Debug Dump files to multiupload ( so it can stay alive for longer.

It looks like its a retail to debug converter. Not really interested in doing that till its tested by others with more than 1 PS3 unlike myself.
If it does play 3.6+ games then I will do it.

It looks like I will be getting a PS3 to test this on later today. Any more things to try out? While I got this PS3 I might as well test everything on it.

cfwprohet said we needed 5 files, 2 of them are already there (vhs.self and version.txt/index.dat). I know that on the ps3 dev wiki there are file hashes for the sprx and self files, but not their function.

I'm just trying to brainstorm, I've only made minimal changes to some prx on psp on the past, but I've watched through the files on the 4.00 dump (debug one) and the files you're looking for are the ones that check for firmware updates and launches games, right?

Bit of scene info from non english speaking world I haven't seen up here yet: There is a 360+games.for.355.dev_flash.fix.Mooses.rar floating around that has definitely got 4.00 files in it (I wouldn't say this only Ive confirmed it for myself, eg. AppVersion: 4.00.0 , AppAuthID: 10700000_52000001) so it seems TeaM-Ac1D are not the only ones using this approach.

Still not convinced but maybe there is something more to their claims than I thought. Haven't tested as I haven't got any 3.60+ games here but I'm sure if there is any truth to it it will spread quick. Anyone got any more info to share on this?
