Finally after lots of testing TeaM-ACiD1C are proud to announce the third official release of Acid Customised Firmware. For this 3.41.010 release we have mainly concentrated on enabling some debug console options and developing the new Haxx category.

This is only the small start of The Acid Custom Firmware WIP project and we have many more plans for the future. We wanted to get this stable version out there for more thorough testing in the wider community.

Especially as things have changed since we started this project, The Holy grail for Custom firmware Developers : Just today a new homebrew app was released for PS3 that enables full write access to the dev_flash on PS3′s internal flash memory.

Some of the changes you will notice in Acid CFW 3.41.010:

★ New Haxx Category next to game
★ Check option for all games, PS3saves and gamedata (greyed out – Not working yet)
★ Quick sign Up in Haxx
★ Titlestore preview in Haxx
★ Titlestore preview (in game) in Haxx
★ Install Packages in Haxx
★ App/home in Game and Haxx
★ Performance Bar
★ No memory limit
★ Quick preview
★ Clear Cache
★ Owner Information for gamedata
★ Various Icon and text mods – POC
★ SaveData Ps1/2 shows up in JB mode
★ Custom firmware version in System info
★ Some other cosmetic differences

We had a few more ideas we are working on and other things like the – No request event error -showing up which we left out for now until we can do more research and testing.

So Now that we have FULL write access to dev_flash with JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma’s new homebrew app – Mount Alejandro this means we can permanently install Acid Customised Firmware (AcidCFW) onto our Ps3s. Of course for those who dont want to permanently mod thier consoles thats fine too, just use JaiCraB’s other tool Firmloader 0.3 to run from USB. So now we have soft-mod solution and a permanently installable way of runnning AcidCFW.

A few important points to note if modifing your dev-flash permanently:

  • Using this new write-enabler tool could put your console at some risk as the firmware is fully writeable.
  • Only you are responsible for your console, Do not attemp to modify your flash if you do not fully accept the risks.
  • It works well if you understand how to use it, if your not sure ask here and myself (DeViL303) or Cfwprophet will help you anyway we can.
  • I have personally tested erasing over half of my firmware (entire vsh folder) and my PS3 and I had no problem in reinstalling Sony FW3.41 through recovery menu so it seems fairly safe.
  • Read the Acid CFW tutorial here before you do anything: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-guides-tutorials/simple-instructions-running-acid-ps3-cfw-usb-115750-2.html#post344990
  • WARNING : DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL ANY FILES THAT YOU HAVE MODDED YOURSELF ON REAL DEV_FLASH WITHOUT RIGOROUS TESTING FIRST USING FIRMLOADER, THIS WRITE-ENABLER COULD BE A HIGHLY DANGEROUS APP IN THE WRONG HANDS AND COULD BRICK YOUR CONSOLE IF YOU MAKE ANY MISTAKES WHILE COPYING FILES. IF YOU BRICK YOUR CONSOLE YOU CAN BLAME NO-ONE ONLY YOURSELF. APPS LIKE THIS NEW ARE ONLY EXPERIMENTAL AT THIS EARLY STAGE AND MAY NOT BE 100% STABLE ! SERVICE MODE MIGHT SAVE YOU BUT NO GUARANTEES.

The files corrupted? I will format my USB stick and put a new copies of the files on it. As for the loader, I used the one you guys uploaded in the package, JaiC_USB_FIRM_LOADERv03.

And which payload you use? All team members of us only have used hermesv4. Which folder do you use.The full version or the patch version?

Do you know if a CFW for 3.15 exist ? I test a version but did not work on my 3.15 so a new version exist ?

It's just because CFW 3.41.010 don't work.

Thanks

We can do but the problem will be that usb firm loader do not work on FW 3.15.There for i jumped onto 3.41 and in case of game support.We also will in future jump over to new fw's if we or some one other can dump the dev_flash.

I was talking about when I originally changed my PS3's 40GB HDD for a 500GB one I got the same message. Later in the message it says to hold start and select to install firmware 3.41, that's what I did to get it working when I switched hard drives. The 2nd version of 3.41 of course, the first one apparently caused problems.

I posted it here rather than the support section because they asked for feedback and I thought this might be relevant rather than an isolated case. Though, it seems at this point it is just me.

I hate to quote myself but this is the only issue with the CFW I've seen and no one had anything to say. No one knows what could be causing this?

That's the same message I got when I switched hard drives and it forced me to install 3.41 on it again.

Like already mentioned before most bluray rips on usenet are in .mkv. I find it pointless to convert stuff after i have downloaded something. Perhaps if you download the occasional movie it wouldnt be a problem. But if you download lots of movies (for your home server) it would be nice if the ps3 would support .mkv/.srt

Also that remark that not a lot of software supports .mkv ...where the hell did that come from ??
