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.

Had some one else say that, then they ended up with the same results as me. The game is my own personal backup, and seeing the same result twice leads me to believe its true for all.

If it does work for you without the results below, only thing I can figure is that it has to do with you having the "Game Data" previously installed.

Does this firmware allow installation and running of unsigned code? Also with the 3.55 cfw is there going to be a hermes 4.355 port coming out soon?

But remember, switch between payloads will result in permissions problems, this is the main reason for fix_permissions exist.
