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!

I would love to be able to play my legally purchased PAL PS2 titles on my 60GB US PS3. For all those claiming that the PS3 can already play PS1/PS2 titles, well, this is one example where it can not.

Do you think it would ever be possible to play ps2 backups on non-bc consoles? Or should I just let that hope die off now?

I'm thinking maybe someone will eventually port an emu that will do the trick, everyone just to busy breaking the PS3 wide open at the moment.

Gotta love my JB 60G (500G) 1stGen PS3 Fat!!!

At this point, ALL this does is to restore playing PS1 and PS2 originals from disk on a JB'd PS3. It's exactly the same behavior as one that has been booted normally. Hopefully we can get improved features in subsequent releases.

What I want to know, is if this allows us to play import ps1 games (non-backups), as I wouldn't mind trying some certain bemani titles...

Have you READ the thread?

PS1 works on ANY PS3 and there is not any "for now" regards PS2 (at least in relation to this tool) - your PS3 either can play PS2 games or not, nothing else.

This toll will NOT add something you don't have in normal mode already - just allows you to play PS1 (and PS2 if compatible) games in JB mode. It will NOT "magically" allow you to play PS2 games on non compatible PS3 nor backups.

Em, Are you serious ?? if you are you could tell us some more info, did the console get wet or catch fire or what caused the problem initially, is it an Xbox or a PS3??

Luckluka I have about 5 or 6 PSN downloaded PS1 games installed ,activated and working on my PAL 60GB 3.15, a couple from US PSstore but most from EUR PSstore. If you want them (+activation files if they would help) to aid in your research with this project just let me know.

I don't use that console normally anymore but I think they are:
Crash Bandicoot
Crash Bandicoot 2
Spyro the Dragon
Demolition Derby
cant remember last one
