October 2, 2011 // 8:42 pm - Following up on the earlier releases, today PlayStation 3 developer an0nymous has updated PS3Load which allows users to run PS3 SELF programs via wireless or wired network with some make_self bug fixes as outlined below.

Download: PS3Load GNPDRM PKG (580.47 KB)

To quote via PS3 Dev Wiki (

Older versions of ps3load would not work on 3.50/3.55 ("sysProcessExitSpawn2" won't work proper), and you had to use 3.41 instead. This is no longer an issue with the recent version ps3load which fixed the (make_self) issue for 3.55 standalone precompiled version to try: ps3load.gnpdrm.pkg (don't forget to delete your old version first)

Using ps3load:

1. make your app, produce at least an ELF
2. sprxlinker yourapp.elf (this should be done for you if you use any of the samples)
3. make_self yourapp.elf yourapp.self
4. load ps3load on the PS3
5. define the PS3LOAD environment variable in your favorite shell with tcp:ip_addr (where ip_addr is your the ip address of your PS3)
6. ps3load yourapp.self

IRC notes:

  • [eussNL] an0nymous solved the make_self
  • [eussNL] it was never a problem of ps3load, but from make_self
  • [eussNL] also, 3.50++ added memory protection (W^X)

PS3Load v0.2 attached.
Nov. 1 Update: It seems that a number of people were having problems with the first pkg I created, so I've uploaded a slight bugfix.

Fail!: It does recieve the file that I send it, but it sticks on the grey screen! No booting back to XMB!

I guess a small bugfix would be enough to make it usable.

ok so if we get a .elf file from a wii game will it work?

How about you read it again. And if you still don't understand then read it again. And if you still fail then don't bother with it.

being able to launch or copy over games from a NAS to the internal hdd would be sweet, but this is still good progress for the scene.
