224w ago - Today TeaM-ACiD1C has released PS3 Acid CFW version 3.41.010, a Customised Retail-Debug-Hybrid PlayStation Firmware!

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.

TeaM-ACiD1C (Formerly Team Jesters Jicence): Cfwprophet, DeViL303, Nev, SK Group, B4rtj4h, LuckLuka.


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.

I'll have to use your proggy next time then. Maybe it will help my anime subtitle audio syncing problem

On usenet the majority of bluray rips are in mkv format. It gives whoever is downloading, better choices of audio/subtitles streams. I would definately agree though that once you have one, its best to convert it with mkv2vob for use on a ps3.

You don't have to convert .MKVs, but just transcode them. So it won't take long at all. I transcode .MKVs to .MPEG2 all the time using MKV2VOB for use with my PS3. It takes around minute or two for a 720p Futurama episode to transcode for instance, and I'm only using a single core 1.7GHZ with 512MB.

barry beat me to it >_<

However there is one problem I've run into with MKV2VOB. Whenever I need to transcode an anime for PS3 use it takes longer since it needs to splice in the subtitles, and furthermore sometimes with animes I get audio out of sync or subtitles out of sync.

Why are they in mkv format in the first place? Barely any software supports it!

converting them wouldn't take that long most are mpeg2 / divx video anyway its just muxing the audio to them takes abit of time and not that long it took me about 30mins to mux all 3 lord of the rings movies a few days ago on an old dual core. and you could just queue them up to run over the weekend or something.

convert them now or later its really up to you but you'll do it sooner or later because mkv's are rubbish for normal media.

Good luck. I'm not good with coding or programming so I can't do any testing myself

the ps1 only has one cd drive so does the ps2, so one mounted cd is all you can use, we can't pass parameters to the ps1 or 2 emus just run them and they look in the one place they're expecting a game. instead we just change the place its expecting it to be on each selection then maybe add a null one into the list to send it back to where it's supposed to be mounted.

I'm going to have a look at the alejandro source and see if its around then ill try a test just ftping a ps1 game across and using a different one to boot it and see if that works.
