245w ago - Just over a week ago SKFU reported on PS3 Custom Firmware, and today Spanish PS3 developer JaicraB has made it a reality and released a PS3 PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader!

Download: PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader v0.2

To quote from his site (linked above), roughly translated:

"This program allows to simulate the dev_flash from USB. Allowing a Custom Firmware. We may modify the files of our new dev_flash (USB) as we please, without running the risk of throwing away the PS3.

It is a beta version, probably find bugs. I will continue working on it when time permits me. Remember that suffers no risk to the console. All that is changed the new dev_flash'll be doing really USB.

Requirements:

• Syscall PEEK and POKE.

Installation:

1. Copy the "FTP server" the entire contents of the / dev_flash the USB (the root).
2. Copy the JaiC_USB_FIRM_LOADER.pkg also the root of the USB.
3. Install the package.

Use:

1. Insert the USB into the PS3.
2. Run USB LOADER FIRM. After a few seconds will return to the XMB. The new firmare is loaded.

You will see that whatever you do the USB will be launched. Ideal for amending RCO, exchange modules, as you imagine.

IMPORTANT!

Do not update while in Live Firmware Mode. It will reboot, setting the original dev_flash back, and then it will update! Do not update from USB FIRMWARE LOADER!"

PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader v0.2 Released by JaicraB!

Do you have a dump of the 3.42 flash dir so we can try it? No, that's probably why its not been tried as nobody has it.

Just delete all your valuable PSN Info. You modify dev_Flash to get only PSN-Store access by using the Full SDK

ok, I change the hex on my at90usb162 (Teensy 1.0). now when I start JaiCraB USB Firm Loader, the display go black, filck few times, and exits back to XMB. The problem now is that, i can`t see any change, my dev_flash directory remain unchanged, and dev_usb002 (the name depends on witch usb port I put the usbflash) remain unchanged.

I copy the file from ps3 to usbdrive with Filemanager v3, that eliminate the possibility of file error (like ftp copy error).

Any new idea?

that's possibly because the slim requires a certain firmware version to run so without that version (check somewhere in bios?) it panics. Where as the fat can theoretically run any firmware so its cool.

I've been playing with the INDEX.DAT and ive gotten the firmware to say "Version: X.XX"

Weird though this only works on the FAT PS3 if you do this on the slim it sends you to some red screen saying a critical error has occured.
