sorry testers, i have not had time to fix the ps3. well to say the truth i have only one hand right now and soldering would be hard to do. My little girl slammed the door on my hand on accident (so she says) but have to keep it wrapped up into this weekend.

it is not broke but they had to wrap it up to stop the bleeding. so i will get going on this as soon as i can take the wrap off. thanks and will keep you updated.

Ah yes, swapping dev_flash files, can be done manually by adding "pause" to the task or by using change_devflash_files.tcl . I see.

Can you explain more about "Thurs psx" and what it does?

Are you planning to release some tcl files for your mods or just PUP files?

Salvation to all,

you will not find the TCL compatibility ps1, i chnage the files manually. In PS3MFC) dialing you can open the dev_flash, then push your changes and then close the pup. The patch TCL no_check that you is non-functional for the Cfw Rebug, it must edit it manually. Then, not to say that I work with Tcl !!!

Hello with all,

I holds to clarify certain points, the patch included in this CFW are not by all provides in PS3MFW (patch ps1, does not exist, and patch NO_Check functions that if I modify file TCL me even on Rebug Base).

The image of the coldboot is of my realization, the audio east took on Internet and I like it, it is for that that it is there.
The category has the homebrew Channel comes from file XML and RCO on the basis of an already existing base. (nothing very complicated it inside and not time to delay me above it).

It is always easy to criticize the work of the others. If you do not like, and pass your road, are not made you to like this CFW!
But at least it has the merit to exist and bring some additions interesting.

To download it here the new bond:

"The Homebrew Channel" w/ PKG Manager sounds like NFW v3 to me, and the Cinavia patch is useless on this as Cinavia IS already disabled in REBUG, but yah all this can be done through PS3MFW Builder with all the available tcl
