239w ago - Today stoker25 via PSX-Scene has released CFWLoad v1.0 with source code, which he states is essentially a clone of JaicraB's PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader with a few differences for people with USBs that have different numbers.

Download: CFWLoad v1.0 for PS3

For those interested in modifying the PlayStation 3 registry files, previously he released a PS3 Registry xRegistry.sys File Editor followed by PS3 Multi Tool v0.2.

To quote on his latest release:

It's a clone of JaicraB's USB FIRM LOADER, with a few differences for people like me with USBs that have different numbers.

Features:
• Choose what USB to use!
• Redirect dev_flash to usb
• Redirect app_home to usb
• Dump LV2 kernel and mount points
...along with all the source code that does it

NOTE: You need a payload with peek and poke syscalls (PL3 dev has this).

Usage:
• X - (Un)Patch /dev_flash as usb
• Square - (Un)Patch /app_home as usb
• Select - Dump lv2.bin & mounts.bin to usb
• Up/Down - Change USB
• Triangle - Exit

The dev_flash files have to be on the root of the USB drive to work, e.g. if E:/ is your drive, you should have E:/vsh, E:/vsh/modules, etc...

Make a PS3_GAME folder on your USB for the thing in the Game menu to work. App has some bugs, but it is my first PS3 program.

Thx:
JaicraB - original CFW loader
dwarfcrank - reversing the CFW loader

Nice one wouldn`t it be possible to do the same they did with the xbox 360?? Creating a secondary hardware ID within the playstation as it works for them it could work for us as well..

I`m not worth much with scripting so don`t ask me to do it myself...

For now its just my ideas I can try to help out with

Doesn't work for me. Redirection of the dev_flash folder and also the dump option of lv2 and mount points are unusable.

For the rederiction the ps3 restarts with a error message about system couldnt be booted. And dump option just frezze the console.

lol but nothing lasts forever. but hey, progress would be awesome.

would be funny if there was a super simple solution, like hooking a 3.50 ps3 into a 3.41 ps3 via lan and proxying or cloning the other ps3s ra ra ra and getting the jailbroken one online and super magical stuff happens and lalala i'm tripping out on cold medication.

Agree. One with all the blocked features from Sony unlocked would be a cool one. And the version number set on 3.51 so we can go online again
