PlayStation 2 Software Emulator on 3.55 CFW Without Cobra USB


Sponsored Links
139w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developers mysis and eussNL on the Wiki have posted a method to get the PlayStation 2 (PS2) Software Emulator working on 3.55 CFW without a DRM-infected Cobra USB dongle for all PS3 Fat and Slim consoles.

Download: PlayStation 2 (PS2) Software Emulator Files for PS3 3.55 CFW / PlayStation 2 (PS2) Software Emulator Files for PS3 3.55 CFW (SRC)

To quote: Getting PlayStation 2 Software Emulator working

Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
4. It will run.

Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

A possible compatibility lists:

  • ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Talk:Emulation#PS2.2FPStwo

PS2 Compat. flag

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

XMB checks this flag and if == 0, it will give following message: "This model of the PS3 system is not compatible with PlayStation 2 format software."

Those interested in running PS2 games on their PS3 console may also wish to check out the previous Open PS2 Loader v0.8 for PS3, PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher and PS2 HDD Support & Discless ELF Launching from PS3 XMB articles as well.

Finally, in released news IngPereira has made available a PS2 DEX Boot 4.11 4.20 (Test) and below is also a PS3 EVO 1.0 video and release details by SONIC_BH for those interested, as follows:

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...




1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

My iso's are detected in my external ntfs drive in the folder 'ps3iso' but i want to keep them in 'ps3_games' so i can use the same drive for my jailbroken ps3 and my other which has a cobra ode.

Can anyone post a working options file for changing the directory in an ntfs drive please?
