To quote, roughly translated: Well, do not take any more, I have to sleep it took more than 20 hours in active!

  • CECHC04 (my model, 3 times with Different Changes, FAT 60GB)
  • CECHG04 (FAT)
  • CECHH04 (FAT 40GB)
  • CECHL04 (FAT 80 gb)
  • CECHH01 (NTSC 40GB FAT)
  • CECHE01 (NTSC)
  • CECH2001A (NTSC slim 120GB)
  • CECH2004A (slim)
  • CECH2504B (slim)
  • CECH2404A (slim)
  • CECH2004B (slim)

I see that the link has been posted "tomorrow" will open a thread and it will take all this data update the readme. For those wondering, where you put the PS3UPDAT.PUP. bat of the package, run the bat and you create a CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP

That gets into a pendrive as PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP and if you are in 3.41 so you will have to start the restoration console (which is done by pressing the power and using a USB cable for connecting the controller and such)

Then, since the firm installed just install the pkg is included and run the application to load the payload. I think that having a 100% success in all these models, we can say that the patch is safe: if a console peta, be anything else but work, work.

From the included ReadMe File: Hermes CFW 3.41 version 1.0 (BETA)

WARNING! This modified firware is tested only by two persons (it is experimental!!!) with this models:

  • CECHC04 (my model, 3 times with different changes)
  • CECHG04 (from one friend)

I cannot be sure if it can brick others models (don't use this CFW if you have buy your console with 3.50+, you can brick it!)

I am not responsible if this CFW brick you console: I have taken all possible precautions using SHA1 hash to avoid errors building the firmware, etc, and other problems (i include too my own patch utility to be sure you apply the patch correctly).

Building the firmaware:

Put original PS3UPDAT.PUP (3.41 v2) with patch.bat and run patch.bat. It must create CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP.

Put CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP as PS3UPDAT.PUP in one pendrive (usb:/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP) and try to update normally from the device.

If it say "you have this version yet" try the restoration - recovery method (pressing POWER. Ask about this method if you don't know in the forums)

Features:

  • LV1 patch for undocumented v1_undocumented_function_114 (kudos for flukes1/graf_chokolo) 1 byte, don't worry!
  • LV2 peek/poke patch (original from psgroove)
  • vsh.self patch to enable .self (same patch as psgroove-hermes_v4B. To launch self requires the payload working)
  • nas_plugin.sprx patch to enable packages (same patch as psgroove-hermes_v4B. You can install PSL1GHT original packages but requires geohot make_self_npdrm without one payload working)
  • category_game.xml modified to enable packages (kudos for KaKaRoTo)

With this options PS3 works with Homebrew signed (use make_self_npdrm in the EBOOT.BIN).

Working:

Install payloadhv4.pkg and launch it to load the psgroove-hermes_v4B

NOTE: payload code is experimental. I need to work in the application and the payload to add news features. don't worry about the source code now: this is a beta test version yet, but the source code will soon available.

Here is the payload v1.01 update from Hermes with source code: http://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_cfw-3-41-hermes-version-payload-update-v1-01_1559988
- Install the package payloadhv4.pkg

- Run "Payload - Hermes V4C" every time you turn the console

- If you run it by holding 'X' you enter a menu with the following options

1) XMB Debug -> Sale with debug options (/ app_home/PS3GAME)

2) Retail XMB -> Exit with the standard options (like when you turn the console, but with patches)

3) UnMountDevices -> removed all redirects (syscall 36, redirect to / app_home/PS3GAME, etc)

I will update the first post to include this now as well.

installed pkg under normal jb status , powered off/on and the hermes pkg is alrady signed so it ran on OFW but it doesn't inject the payload so no go on the idea.

this is what i want rather that CFW , multiman runs on OFW:D so does this pkg so someone needs to combine them and then it's the icing on the cake for SONY!!

I think it should work if it is signed. Go ahead and give it a try and see if it works. If it does work let me know and share the signed Payload lol

cheers for the replies, i get that it can be done with the CFW

what i meant to ask was does the Payload PKG work on official firmware , ie signed so that i don't have to install any CFW or use the iphone again ?

Yes, you can use this on your non Jailbroken PS3 3.41. Everything works fine. With this custom firm you don't need to use your Iphone no more. Everytime that you turn on or restar your PS3 you need to run the app called payloadhv4.pkg and then your favorite manager & whatever game you want

You dont need to jailbreak the ps3 to install and you will never need to hook the iphone up again to jailbreak the ps3 again. With this it does it all for you. Thanks It will act just LIKE a ps3 that has been jailbreaked.

You will also not have to press power and then eject again. Just power and you install the payload after each reset and you are good to go. Thanks.
