January 9, 2011 // 8:40 pm - Here are some PS3 Firmware 3.55 Compatible Homebrew applications, emulators and games that work with the recently released GeoHot 3.55 PS3 JailBreak Custom Firmware.

I've managed to get the SNES9x emulator compiled myself. Please be aware this is an old version, it was only compiled as a testing purpose! Works fine and dandy!

i'm trying to play Blazblue continuum shift on my 3.55 CFW right? i've installed the pkg file and tranfersed the USDIR contents to the PS3. then when i went to load the game it asked me if i wanted to update software and i said yes. then after that the update failed and it removed the pkg from the XMB.

now this is a game thats already been confirmed to work. has this happend to anyone else or did i just mess it up?

You have to locate the file "fbanext-ps3.xml" in "dev_hdd0/game/FBAN00000/usrdir" and change the path to: /dev_hdd0/ROMS/FBA/ if you want to run it from the PS3 hard disk, if you dont have the folder, create it with any ftp or file manager. I don't know why, but i figured that the line that goes first after the "" tag takes priority so put it first.

How did you even get the FBA Next emulator to locate the roms?

I'm following the readme step by step and it still will not locate roms every time. please help a brother out!

I don't know if this has been answered, sorry in advance. I'm got Street Fighter III 3rd Strike on the FBANext emulator. The one I'm using doesnt have button mapping but its the only one I found that runs the rom (for me, at least).

My problem is, I did the button mapping by manually editing the file in the config directory. I tested it when I first did the edit and worked perfectly for both controllers. Now from out of nowhere, it doesnt want to register the "hard kick" button which i mapped to R2 and worked before.

Here is my button config file in case it is needed: File name: default_cps.ini

[Register or Login to view code]

The one that worked before which doesnt anymore is the one that's mapped to "switch 0x4089".

I've been tweaking with it for a while since it stopped working and had no luck.

Just in case, the R2 button is working fine in the controller with other games.

Thank you for the quick response. I guess i'll just wait for working backup manager to work before updating to CFW 3.55.

By the way we are talking about Geohotz CFW 3.55 right?

Hi sorry guys if my questions has been answered. Here i go:

1. If i use CFW 3.55 do i still have to use my amaze break dongle to jailbreak?
2. I read that some backup games are playable. what backup manager can i use to backup and play NFS Shift, Formula 1 2010, Dirt 2 on CFW 3.55
3. Can i play my original GT5 with CD on CFW 3.55? If so, any issues?

I tried searching but not all questions have been answered. Thank you!
