January 14, 2011 // 11:08 pm - Today pspLT has released the first PS3 homebrew via DemonHades, namely a PC Engine emulator dubbed PCE Emu, that runs on PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.41 without a dongle although a dongle is still required to install it.

Download: PCE.emu PC Engine Emulator for PS3 (3.41 FW)

To quote, roughly translated: Now, who is still with 3.41 firmware? Well, i don't know if this a good news or a not so pleasant one but it certainly worth of noting about.

Using a dongle to jailbreak your PS3 is hassling a lot of your time, even so the power + eject button is making it more annoying.

+ Support for Zip files
+ Cue files can use external audio tracks in Ogg Vorbis and WAV (PCM, ADPCM, etc) formats (does not work on PS3 today)

PS3 Controllers:

+ D-pad: navigate menus
+ Cross: entrance confirm or select the menu, the button
+ Circle: Cancel the menu entry
+ start: start your game


1- download the file (for ps3 3.41)
2- copy the file to the root of all removable media supported by the ps3 (pendrive, PSP card, etc …

So even if I had the "Install package" on the XMB it still wont work without JB? Well I wont bother then.

Is there a GetHot Modded firmware for 3.41 or is it 3.55 only?

Both EBOOT's are signed to work on either FW, we don't have package signing keys is why 3.41 won't install w/o JB, and no 3.41 version will not install on 3.55 as it is not signed with Geohot's fake key to work on Geohot's 3.55 CFW.

I have both install package and app_home/PS3_GAME which now displays "Play Game"

That's what I was thinking. Why bother making 2 versions. 1 for 3.41 and 1 for 3.55 when the 3.41 version should still work in 3.55. As I'm on 3.41 thats what I'm making them for.

How do you do that? I've been trying to find a way so I can install PKGs when not in JB mode.

It'll speed up the testing time as I have to keep on rebooting to install them.

I'm pretty sure snes9x 4.4.3 was the first released working w/o dongle, I don't believe we have the keys to sign packages (except Geohot's fake sign for 3.55)

This is no completely signed... The BOOT.bin is signed, but the PKG is not signed..

I have added the "Install package" function to my category_game.xml (FW3.41)

And i am not able to install the pkg, without the jb. Which is half the point, when we are able to sign homebrew, install it, and use it with out the JB.

PKG signed for 3.55 would not install on 3.41, but i bet PKG signed for 3.41 will work for 3.55. So why not sign all PKG for 3.41?

You can also transfer the file using the proxy method and Folding at Home (Life at Playstation) link. This will transfer the emu pkg in the place of the Folding at Home pkg and install it. For anyone which doesn't have a dongle!

This isn't the first emulator to run without a dongle on 3.41. I ran SNES9X earlier in the week, the first signed EBOOT I tested.
