October 10, 2010 // 6:07 am - Today I share with everyone what I call nXMB, it allows you to patch Dev_Flash for PS1 games and PS2 games if your PS3 is backwards-compatible (has 4 USB ports) in PS3 JailBreak Mode!

Download: nXMB Dev_Flash Patch for PS3

What is nXMB?

nXMB is a tool that patches your dev_flash to play PS1 Games (PS2 games also work if you have a bc-console) in JB Mode.

How to use nXMB? And What are its requirements?


• PS3 that is JailBroken
• DEV_FLASH from your PS3
• JaiCraB's Firm Loader v0.3

Step 1: Connect via FTP and get your dev_flash
Step 2: Move your dev_flash and the nXMB into a new folder (NOT THE CONTENTS, BUT THE DEV_FLASH ITSELF).
Step 3: Open nXMB and let it patch your dev_flash
Step 4: Copy the contents of that dev_flash to your USB Flash Disk
Step 5: Launch USB Firm Loader

The PS3 will mount your USB flash disk as dev_flash

You will NOT see "Install Package Files" but instead of that you will be able to boot PS1/PS2 games and you will have access to your memory cards!

If you wish to view my old thread that led to this app it is located HERE. Currently trying to make 'Install Package Files' also appear in nXMB!

Have Fun!

Yes PS1/PS2 Backups

To Jackpollack: OtherOS installs like it installed on a 3.15FAT

I will show you booting how I booted PetitBoot on my friend's slim ps3!(i got a fat one)

It will be really easy!

When you enable OtherOS on a slim, where is it going? Does your method require reformatting/repartitioning the HD? Or have you gotten that far? Does it require kernel patches? I'm sorry for so many questions, but i upgraded to 3.41 long ago and have been kicking myself ever since for the loss of OtherOS.

You're talking about PS1 & PS2 backups, right?

DeViL303: Good Point. I'll think about that

Now the update:
You will still need the jailbreak.
It isnt in the form of a PUP
JaiCrab's FWLDR wont be needed since i coded one myself which is more stable
The Peek-Poke from XMB will be delayed a little since it is a LITTLE hard

Info on OtherOS on SLIMs:
It was a lie that the slim has a stripped off hypervisor! I achieved otheros by just ENABLING the option using my way!

RSX access will be enabled. Modified payload will be needed. I think ill release patch to PL3, He will add it l8r on. I recommend AVRs with 32KB Flash minimum!

I recommend getting an ATAVRXPLAIN since it has 128KB for the AT90USB1287 it uses!

Great news! CFW? Are you serious?

Hi Luckluka, I'm curious, why you are trying so hard to hide the mods you are doing to the Dev_flash folder? Why not just release what you know so other devs can get involved too! like someone said earlier in this thread you could have just posted the modded xml file for nXMB rather than having complicated program with encryption just to modify a few lines of text? (we just compared the files anyway!)

I think If you just released what you knew rather than adding time to development by trying to hide what you are doing it would help the scene more and you will still be the one who invented the methods.

If you are worried about being ripped off there is no real point worrying (no money involved for one!) Fairly sure other Devs/hackers will copy and modify your work either way and you would gain more respect by being open and releasing source code like many other homebrew devs. Dont forget If sonys PS3 software can be hacked I think your FTP access block on dev_flash folder can be hacked too eventually!

Care to post any file list/pics ?

Keep up the good work anyway!

Hey guys! Late reply but... i got good news. I have successfully managed to run a ps1 backup. I modded the files in the ps1emu folder using the FULL 3.41 SDK

Find the full 3.41 SDK on level 9 Private torrent tracker! (invites go over 200$ so good luck on getting an invite)

The patch will be released before New Year! The patch will be obfuscated in an unimaginable way! DES and 3-AES.

It will be in the form of the current nXMB. Each dev_flash will be tied to your PS3 Serial Number, PS3ID, and your OWN special license!

After patching, the dev_flash will become in the format of .nxmb, the dev_flash will also be encrypted in an extraordinary way. And only my homebrew program will be able to decrypt it. The homebrew won't be signed as npdrm, so it will be nearly impossible to decrypt the eboot.bin
The homebrew will RESTRICT any access to dev_flash through the ftp server!

I also can guarantee you that otheros will be possible on 3.41>, even on slim's too! Talk about intergrating a custom hypevisor. Full Peek-Poke directly from xmb will also be available and much more!

I will post a video next week of me playing PS1 backups and otheros on slim. Expect a CFW too by that time! It will have the cex but encrypted too as .nxmb

Please Do NOT ask me to upload 3.41 SDK, get it from the Private torrent tracker above if you have access or wait for a more public leak of it.
