May 16, 2012 // 11:59 pm - Following up on the PS3 Preloader Advance v3.1 by JaicraB, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have released Service Pack 1.3 for PS3 JFW-DH 3.56 MA CFW, Tools for MAD by Chekco, a ConfEditor by Vakaloka, a tutorial by siema44 and a PSX and Dynarec ISO demo video below!

To quote, roughly translated: New PS3 JFW-DH 3.56 MA CFW Service Pack 1.3

Service Pack 1.3 brings in a wealth of improvements and new features such as the Grid system, a plugins manager, the ability to dualboot GameOS and Linux and of course Dynarec which throws in support for PSX ISOs.

  • System Administrator unlocked for use with 50 functions including only HV can run in service mode (*).
  • Total compatibility with games, games that gave failures now work OK.
  • Support Ministry of PSP, and PSN games now run and debugged all.
  • Compatibility with PS2 corrected.

What's New TheGrid

  • TheGrid patching the boot
  • Region Free BD
  • Patched new checks
  • Payloads support
  • Linux
  • Dynarec load support in the LV2 (emulators support more advanced 3d)
  • Dynamic patch is not required to install or replace, and nothing more.

New options to start with EGEA detecting flags to perform new tasks:

These flags or files are placed in the root of usb / dev_usb000 only have to create an empty document even from the context menu of windows and these names and ready, you can invoke the boot and call to fulfill a task as their names pre-written.

As you see you can avail of basic features including the Preloader from the very start just using FLAGS. Write access to the flash from the start, no dev_fast, etc.. It follows the runtime load EGEA.SELF at startup. Improvised use of new syscalls 15,16,20 (lv2 memcpy, memset lv2 and lv1 CallGate).

Details: Using MatherOS direct start to load directly into the console linux without going through the VSH. XploraMAs improved the display of units and contents. MultiTheme included in their own zip.

Position of the patches:

In this first version of TheGrid in MA we are 6 options or patches are:

  • First patch (first number in the 64): this corresponds to MatherOS Patch to disable or enable the use of Linux on the console.
  • Second patch (second number in the 64): Corresponds to load the syscall PL3 Payload 35 in the console.
  • Third patch (third number in the 64): Corresponds to load Payload Supports sc MAS 36 and 8 on the console.
  • Fourth patch (fourth number in the 64): Corresponds to load BD region Free bone patch overrides the restriction on the region bds ignoring methods such as changing the console region (Annoyed if you have to do all the time).
  • Fifth patch (fifth in number 64): Corresponds to the patch that disables the PS1 disk check on the console.
  • Sixth patch (sixth in number 64): Enables or disables dynamic patch the FW by loading a patch that makes bone PatchUser.bin the same user or future updates that we will be taking to thegrid will come in the form of a file "PatchUser.bin" that will contain the updates.
  • Seventh patch (Seventh in the number 64): Enables or disables support for LV2 Dynarec in order to use dynamic recompilation of the emulators and performance improvements in them (For use with emulators suits the users and devs who want the best performance).

(*) You can use the soft regulator of the cooler fan speed in administrator mode.

Improvements over the sp1.2.1 ....

From now you ought to use this version of Iris prepared with the SP Manager 1.3, as always thanks to D_Skywalk to have this manager:

  • Need not be used more compatible 36 or 35 +8 +8 managers to use than the iris manager.
  • You do not need the profile of support for minis and games like GT5 or from dust that was frozen.
  • No change of region, as this patch to put the reader region free.
  • Be able to boot linux from bypassing the xmb.

FAQ ...

I need to install an SP before this?
- No, the SP has all the old and new

I have to put in service mode to install the SP?
- No, use Aegean to install it.

It comes all included in the RAR?
- If including the new Dynamic MultiTheme

Managers Supported

  • Iris Manager 3.56
  • H Manager 1.5
  • Solar Rogero Edition 8.5
  • Multiman 2.008.05

That is the XploraMAs?
- It is a port of the xmb plus but not required PKGs and is much faster displaying content.

It is also necessary to emphasize that the writing on the flash is activated from the start of MA, I mean you have to not use any type mounting system dev_fast etc, just copy and paste the same flash as you have all permits in MA.

Thanks to Rokiski, JaiCraB, blackdeath, Adriansfc92, chickenpox, chekco, kike, and all the devils SolidHades93 community DHorg.


Post Experiences with JFW 3.56 SP 1.3 DH-MA

Well as the title says this post is created for people who have installed the SP 1.3 discuss their experiences and to be failures and others. Also go up Thegrid.cfg with different combinations.

Known bugs:

In some PS3 when you turn on the PS3 Dynarec starts.

CGFS of Thegrid:

CFG with only 36 active syscall:
CFG with activated MAtherOS syscall 36 and BD region Free:
CFG alone with MAtherOS:
CFG with 36 and Dynarec activated syscall:
CFG with all patches disabled:

The failure of Mortal Kombat is not due to SP 1.3 in different cfw already presented the same fault in some cases solved, uninstalling and reinstalling everything again and finally the fix as you know.

You can not use the SC 36 and SC 35 at a time, the PS3 is unnecessary and not ripped it all depends on what you need at all times.

From now you ought to use this version of Iris prepared with the SP Manager 1.3, as always thanks to D_Skywalk to have this manager:

Will be updated with more CFGs.

Installation method of CFGs:

To install create a folder called CFGs GRID_UPDATER at the root of the pen and there you put the CFG, and now you put the Pen in the USB00 and start the PS3, and there you will have installed. You should not have any Aegean in the usb.

ConfEditor by Vakaloka, Create Your Custom Conf

Good friends, our friend has created a tool vakaloka to the PC with which we can create our own TheGrid.cfg, method of use is very simple ..

1) Unzip the contents of the rar
2) We will have an executable and patcher
3) Run the program and see that we have the name of the patches and not or whether to enable or disable the patch
4) Once selected we want to give to save settings, we will ask you say a name TheGrid
5) The establishment of a TheGrid.cfg that you will have to put in a root folder called USB GRID_UPDATER, we put in the cfg
6) Insert the USB pen in the closest to the reader and turn on the ps3 normally, it automatically saves your new cnf

And this, so simple, as it brings patcher.txt point the application, but future patches can expand by simply adding each new name under the following

Download the new version 1.2 (fixes a bug in the previous version):

Thanks to vakaloka 1saludo

Today Chekco of DemonHades has posted (via some JFW DH status details below, roughly translated:

Well hell, after the triumphant return of DemonHades (Triumphal say something ) I decided to post something that was due to publish a long farewell to the Web, because we're going to cheat, much to demon has returned and such, but this is equal to or more dead than before, so as a farewell and funeral of the Web we are publishing the JFW 3.41.

If ​​if as you read, the CFW who had to leave for a long time and stubbornness of your dear master demon DH did not go. So without further ado I leave you with the link to download the CFW and its Tolos (Manager, usaveme and others) just say that a certain person once told me that a cfw had to be free, well that's something I do not agree.

But if they wanted their work free jaicrab since all that thought it was demon JFW were wrong and the only themes I jaicrab little more but I think the pup, blipi, the manager, the openpstore mario, is that this is something that would need to see cast long ago that if this was not released at the time were by the manipulations of a certain person.. Links ..

A greeting and farewell Rest in peace.

PS The v2 is the best work, thanks to jaicrab, blipi, FLIPI. mario, and other people who worked alongside this be for nothing then remained in. CAREFULLY: BOATS AND TEAM I was the most controversial developer in the DH team

This weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have made available a PS3 eEID0 Dumper for JBM 3.55, MA 3.56 and PlayStation 3 CFW 3.55 alongside a ConfEditor for TheGrid.

To quote, roughly translated: eEID0 Dumper by BlackDeath to JBM 3.55, MA 3.56 and CFW 3.55

Hello friends, after the method of filtration CEX2DEX the team decided to investigate this new field (for some) and not so much for others, that is why we are working to bring you the easiest method to move to Linux without requiring DEX.

Today I present created by the dumper EID0 blackdeath with which we can dump all EID0 or directly CEX first section with only launch a pkg and have connected a USB port on dev_usb000, the instructions are on screen and are easy:

  • START: To dump all EID0.
  • SQUARE: To dump the first section of EID0 directly (eid0_1st_Section_CEX.bin).
  • X (EQUIS): To dump metldr (Encryption) to USB and be prepared to exploit and get the dump of the decrypted metldr in subsequent steps.

If you are in Normal 3.55 cfw release the pkg from video.

BlackDeath says: This latest version now allows you to dump the metldr (encryption) on your console if usais the X button and you will have your ready to dump metldr encryption decryption keys used together with her ​​exploit later.

Tell them to keep working this issue need not linux as the next step is to dump the metldr without having to make so many things in linux but a quick and easy dump.

The eEID0 is necessary for the process dump metldr As you know, and only the first section of eEID0 (That we get directly to this tool) is required for Conversion to a unit DEX / TEST.

No more here I leave the download link, works both on any CFW 3.55 (PEEK | POKE LV2) as in MA:

Thanks BlackDeath, Checko, Tito01 and DemonHades

From checko: WIP: A method to dump metldr and eEID root keys without linux, more easy with some little steps .. maybe naehrwert can help you. To quote from his Twitter (via and

Isn't installing linux to get your eid root key a bit of an overkill when you could just use netrpc?!

Or you could compile this, sign it with metldr keys and grab the key/iv from shared LS...

  • Displays a list of flags
  • Displays list of patch-dynamic
  • Displays a list of plugins
  • Allows you to export to the root of the usb, the. Cfg file to test it before storing.

List of flags:

  • Matheros (direct or normal)
  • dumper-ram
  • debug
  • dev_flash (dumper / restore)
  • sc35/36 +8 (more compatible)
  • 100% Fan speed (fan at 100%)

Any questions you have you can reply in this thread, thanks to RacingLocura07, tito1, adriansfc92 as Cheko. Conf editor and this works both as the 3.56 MA JBM 3.55

Finally, in related PS3 homebrew news today PsyOil has made available a PS3 PUP Download Archive (GUI) for those interested stating:

On a click of a button a command prompt window will start downloading (from the PS3 Dev Wiki) the PUP to the same directory as the program. Do not delete wget.exe or else the pups will not download!

Its pretty simple, list of firmwares (OFW) on click they download to the directory your placed the two files in.

Now, you're probably wonder why someone would ever need this. I download and delete pups very often, so I made this program to make it a bit easy to find a PUP right away.. Making a CEX/DEX downloader soon.

Update: he has now released the PUP CEX/SEX Download Archive (GUI) followed by a PUP SEX/DEX/CEX Download Archive GUI stating the following:

Once again, I suck at GUI programs. I've made a command prompt version of the same program, where you just enter the name of the firmware version exmp “4.10″ and it starts downloading the firmware on command (4.10p for patch pups) Should I just release that or stick to the ghetto lookin’ GUI?

Shortly following he also made available a PS3 PUP / Dev_Flash Extractor stating, to quote:

Very simple and straight forward, place pup within the same folder as the extractor! Credit to HSReina for df.exe

Also, I've included a simple command prompt app:

Enter "pu.exe PS3UPDAT.PUP PS3UPDAT" to extract the pup.
Enter "df" to extract Dev_flash from the pup


Here is CEXtoSEX Converter 4.21 as well by PsyOil with the details below, as follows:

Sony shop PUP, just patched promo_flags/update_flags. anyways, this is just a basic pup that will convert your PS3 into a SHOP Ps3. (not advertising as a jailbreak or a CFW) its just a basic MFW.

Remember after unlocking through security settings, the package installer is NOT for homebrews but only for installing demos. The second PUP is a file that'll convert your SHOP PS3 into a retail PS3. Remember, these still apply! (

like natepig said its google translaters interpretation thats hard to follow. i'm sure if you understand spanish and saw the original it would be fine. i just remember all the kafuffle last time with his fw so i'll just wait and see what they release whenever it may happen and check it then but like i said rebug is the go..

Agreed, really can't stand that translation... It's like garble of noun and verb squished together... really don't get what they are trying to say... it's becoming like a joke each time I read news from JFW... or JBM (they changed names again? what else can they not do beside really having a real cfw out)!?

I think they finally got the picture that no one (on 3.55 or below) would willingly install 3.56 JFW for all it's worth

It sounds like they have thrown the towel in on any 3.55+ firmware

Finally, some appealing news for us 3.55 users. From what I've read you would be able to change if you install this firmware unlike the 3.56 version, right?
