January 9, 2011 // 2:19 am - Spanish PlayStation 3 developer nathan_r32_69 has posted a Beta release of PS3 CFW Evilnat today along with details on their BackUp Loader WIP.

To quote, roughly translated via Google:

CFW Evilnat BETA

Good fellow, you know that I decided to make a CFW and investigate, since the programming along with the PS3 is a pretty fun hobby.

"This software is shared with no warranty. Neither I, nor members of PS3SOS liable for any damages to your console. Use with caution."

I have access to the archives of the kernel of the PUP, as I can I start to create the Backup Loader.

Took several days creating this CFW as many already know, only with the disadvantage that do not have Kakarot tool as it gives me errors everywhere, so I'm doing everything manually, and it takes more logically.

I know many will think that I'm doing a CFW own seeing what's online and who are very advanced, I know I could be stupid, but the reason is very easy, if not the major draw, if I get SI Exposing LO.

Comment I did not know for sure if it would get, but I always try. For now its beginnings are already made, the CFW 3.41-Evilnat

The firmware that you create and modify debug options enabled take, I have all minimum. At the moment these are the ones that are built:

  • Install Packages Files
  • app_home/PS3_GAME/
  • Title Store Preview (InGame) (Added on 09/07/2011)
  • Title Preview Store (Store) (Added on 09/07/2011)

I wanted to share with you CFW early yet to give me ideas and comments and stuff.

For now equals that of KaKaRoToKS, as this phase Beta and very green for now installed demos from Install Package Files and run like yours, has taken me days to finish because I have little free time.

I have only made the version 3.41 , also the hare of 3.55 and 3.15 if it can be (for those who are still in that version).

Tomorrow I will put the download link if you want to leaf through and tinker with, I will add new features like the Debug Options in Settings.

Right now I leave it installed to mess with homebrew signed and improve your firmware, and also edit the Game OS.


If anyone wants to work and know programming, you can contact me if you want. Thanks to all who have supported me to keep trying.


nathan_r32_69 = Evilnat

CFW 3.15-Evilnat:

CFW 3.41-Evilnat:

CFW 3.55-Evilnat:

Those who try to comment on whether any CFW installs fine and others I can not install because I'm at 3.41 and lost the support of the dongles.

You know, just a suggestion to the community, it seems that everyone and there grandma is is bringing out some kind of mini modded firmware and they all do just about the same thing with little to no major features. Playing guinea pig with our consoles is very dangerous and folks are going to end up with bricks. Seriously, wait until someone puts out a stable featured payload, just my two cents.

Still haven't seen anyone confirm this working yet, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot stick until someone does.

I saw this and my was amazed since the guy kept quiet , and has all intentions and is currently working on allowing back-ups, also he's got support for 3.15/3.41/3.55 which lends me to believe that this CFW might not need a new library for Homebrew and hopefully current Homebrew can be easily signed to work on it, unlike Geohot and KaKaRoToKs'... fingers-crossed...

Great News ! Especially he is working on a Backup Manager/Loader thing too ! Would be cool being legit online and play bought games legal and than update to this one and played backups and than upgrade/downgrade to retail one ! Would be nice if this works without service mode. XMB update would be the best for everybody !

The only thing I can see us needing is a MFW that has the apps folder. That way we can see what is on the USb stick to actually install them.

It would be nice if its added to a firmware from the start, but not needed. These guys addind the same thing as all the others are useless. If it ever gets backup loading going for it then great, in the mean time I see no reason to install this over one of the others.

Eboot patching is only a band aid for the moment until we get 3.55 cfw or backup support. There is no reason why we should have to keep patching these games like this. Not to mention that very very soon the games released will be compiled with 3.55 and actually USE syscalls from that FW that the older ones do not have. At that point we will NEED backup loading on those newer FW's. No other way around it.

why dont try to make your own modified firmware or custom firmware? dont you think devs are actually trying to add this?
