December 13, 2010 // 12:02 am - PS3 Developers JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma have brought another way to enable writing to the PS3's /dev_flash partition by mirroring it to /dev_Alejandro.

This follows in line with nr4u's Flash Loader, which itself was a successor of JaicraB's USB Custom Firmware Loader v0.3 - but in a more compact, stripped down version.

Download: Mount Alejandro

To quote (via Spanish to English translation):

FLASH Write Enable:

This application allows the mounting of the unit / dev_Alejandro. This unit is a mirror of the unit / dev_flash, with this active alike.

Unit / dev_flash no writeable useful to read as the old way, but the new SI is writable.

This is why we are not responsible for any misuse that may be made this application, the method used, etc. As end users ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE WILL you do ON YOUR MACHINE!

Taken into account before trying to manipulate the firmware, XML files, etc.

Happy Xmax!

JaiCraB & ps3mrenigma

P.S Why the name of Alexander? Who knows, maybe it has something to do with any of us ...

ok, i understand it doesn't work. Just wonder if there may be a quick fix to get it to work. I don't mind using a different ftp app, i just prefer blackb0x.

It doesn't work with blackb0x The way he has it made to where it only shows the system mounts other than the system & user made mounts (dev_alejandro)

Hi, this is the coldboot_stereo of the old start up sound, before the 3.0 fw. I'm using it, so it is working.

I did use the XviD4PSP, i tried a few others apps but only this worked. The right configuration is AC3 640K 48000Hz 2Ch.

If anyone wants some specific sound, i can help and it has 10 seconds only.

It's IP-restricted, so anyone who has a "login" & "password" to this page still would not be able to access it.

yes only for compiling, seems to me with a load of assets we could edit those assets & compile.
